Dear Members and Friends,


From Laura:


" Good morning everyone,

 I am very sad to say that our speaker for Monday night, Bill Naftel, passed away last Sunday. Thank you to our members who passed along this information to us, as his passing appears to have been quite sudden. 

 

Bill was one of IHNS's founding members, a prominent historian and author, and will be sorely missed at our meetings. For those of you who knew him well, visitation is scheduled for this Sunday and the funeral on Monday morning. Details are found in his obituary at the following link:

Because Monday night is also our AGM we have decided to proceed with our meeting, though it will likely be somewhat shorter than our usual evenings. Our AGM will be followed by some in-depth updates on our Albion Mines project at Stellarton, including new findings using LiDAR and a geophysical survey, as well as new insights in documentary research related to the early workers on the site. We will also have a sympathy card prepared for members to sign if they wish, which we will send to Bill's family.


Cheers,


Laura"
