Speaker Series Review – Memories of the Beach

As Summer 2013 is slowly coming to an end, the days are getting shorter, and the temperature (and soon the leaves!) is dropping, reliving Memories of the Beach was a wonderful way to spend an evening.  Author Lorraine O’Donnell Williams spoke of her days growing up in the Toronto Beach area, the history of the area, of how days were spent in the 1930s and 1940s.  All of this was captured in her book: Memories of the Beach: Reflections on a Toronto Childhood.  Thank you to Lorraine, the Historical Society members, and members of the public who attended last evening’s Speaker Series.
