Grand River.

Our education/outreach projects encountered three Grade 7 classrooms in Simcoe. Students experienced Loyalist studies and writing with quill pens, as well as costumed presentations by Marilyn Haslinger and Imogen Givens. Marilyn Branch spoke at the Women's Probus Clubs of Burlington and Brantford. Marilyn Branch, Sue Hines and Cathy Thompson presented "Tea With Mrs. Simcoe" at a Gov. Simcoe Branch meeting. Doris Marcellus continued our interest in Chiefswood, the girlhood home of Pauline Johnson, and attended meetings. Four genealogy workshops were held by Doris Lemon in Waterloo. Cathy Thompson spoke at South Walsingham Heritage Association and Anglican Church Women, both in Port Rowan. Marilyn McDonald took a display to the 222nd Haldimand Proclamation Anniversary Celebration at the Six Nations Community Hall.

At Heritage Fairs in Dunville, Port Maitland and Simcoe, our display was hosted by: Jim Sweet, Cathy Thompson, Alison Smith, Cynthia Stapells, Doris Lemon, Sue Hines, Rob McCarey, Carol Terry and Bill Terry. Member Angela Files received a Provincial Heritage Award for Heritage and History in the community. She gave twenty-one talks on Black History, with the focus on the Grand River area.
