The Capital Calls, was a success.
The United Empire Loyalists' Associations Conference 2019: The Capital Calls, held in the National Capital Region of Ottawa and Gatineau, was an overwhelming success, both in the number of delegates attending and financially.
A total of 160 delegates registered for the Conference, hosted by the UELAC's Sir Guy Carleton Branch, on 30 and 31 May and 01 and 02 June at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel in Gatineau. After paying expenses, the Conference realized a profit of $5,700.
Planning for the Conference started four years ago, with more intense planning within the last two years. The Conference Committee consisted of Sylvia Powers (Chair), Catherine Bastedo-Boileau, Barry Gilmore, Myrtle Johnston, Roy Lewis, Beth Sweetnam and Brian Tackaberry.
The conference featured workshops, vendors, a variety of presenters and tours. Major presenters included Algonquin spiritual elder, Albert Dumont; an impressive musical presentation by renowned singer, Carolynne Davy, and a stirring account of the development of Canada's national flag given by historian, Glenn Wright, at the conference's gala banquet.
