Heritage. (Brancing Out).

Several of our members attended the annual Montreal Highland Games on August 4. This year, the Games were held on the grounds of the Pierrefonds Comprehensive High School, on the "West Island" of Montreal.

Thursday, October 17 was the date for Heritage Branch's Charter Night Dinner, held in the Officer's Mess at the Black Watch (RER) Armoury, Montreal. Our Guest of Honour for the evening was Mr. Kevin O'Donnell, head of English Language School Services at Tele-Quebec, the Quebec provincial education television network. He is also Vice-President of the Hudson Historical Society and an adjunct Professor at McGill University's Faculty of Education. He presented an excellent Tele-Quebec film/documentary on the construction of Montreal's Victoria Bridge in the 1850s.

In November, our president, Mr. Robert Wilkins UE, C.M.H, and his wife Maura attended the Regional Meeting, Central East Region, of the UELAC at the Brockville Museum.

On December 12, in conjunction with the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, the Laurentian Branch of the Royal Heraldry Society of Canada, held its annual Christmas Dinner and Gift Collection Evening in the Wardroom of H.M.C.S. Donnacona in Montreal. Once again, they kindly invited members of Heritage Branch to attend. The gifts were donated to hospitalized children at the Montreal Children's Hospital.

Our Book Donation Program is still in operation. Since the Program started in 1996, we have been donating copies of our Branch's book entitled: The Loyalists of Quebec, 1774-1825, A Forgotten History, to interested archives and libraries, especially school libraries.

Heritage Branch is looking forward to promoting and celebrating the Loyalists in the Montreal Area again in 2003.
