Guest Speaker: John Beram

Our presenter this evening is John Beram, a local storyteller, who has visited us often over the past few years to help bring alive our local history. John has demonstrated many times his ability to dig deep into a topic and discover local connections long forgotten.

John has spent the past four years researching the Great War, including travelling to France to visit the battlefields. For the past four Novembers he has come and presented to us the history of the First World War and especially its impact on the people of the Junction. This will be a presentation that you do not want to miss.

The WTJHS Archives will open at 6 pm,
meeting room doors open at 6:30 pm.
Presentation at  7:00 pm, Refreshments and Business Meeting to follow.
Annette Public Library, Lower Level, 145 Annette Street, Toronto.
