Our Branch has been very busy. The January guest speaker was Peter Allen, President of Grange Elliott Ltd. Surveyors, who talked about British Army survey methods used on the lots for Loyalists.

At the March meeting forty-nine members hid on their favourite books, and Vera Babcock gave a short summary of her far-flung communications with a missionary in Brazil for whom she helped prove two of his Babcock ancestors.
