Upcoming Talks and Activities

Dear Members and Friends,

 

Our May meeting and talk will take place on Monday, May 6, 2019 at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

 

The subject of the talk is ‘The Textile Mill in Windsor – A Historical perspective 1991-2005.’  The presentation will cover the raison d’etre for the establishment and operation of the Windsor Cotton Mill in the early 1880’s and its history, through to the location and operation of Nova Scotia Textiles, Limited in that building until its consolidation with Stanfield’s in 2005.

 

Our presenter for the evening is J. Edward Macdonald, who is a local historian with a particular interest in Nova Scotia’s textile industry.

  

Our May meeting is also our Annual General Meeting, and election of officers for the year.  The positions of Chair and two Board members are open. It would be wonderful to have members, old or new, step up to fill these positions. The commitment is not onerous (‘Board meetings’ are held at the Old Triangle prior to the monthly meeting) and some fresh ideas would help ensure the sustainability of  niche-interest group that has a good bank balance and a proven track record.

 

We hope to see you on the 6th.
