March Meeting

Our March Toronto Branch meeting will take place on Monday 28 March starting at 7:30 pm at the Burgundy Room, North York Memorial Community Hall, 5110 Yonge Street in Toronto (convenient access from the North York subway station).

Join us as award-winning historian and General Editor of the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, David A. Wilson, brings to life the St Patrick’s Day Riots of 1858. Ethno-religious street fighting, a corrupt police force, rabble-rousing Councilmen, class conflict within both the Protestant and Catholic Irish communities, and a murder mystery—we’ll learn about a significant chapter in Canada’s history that has largely been forgotten by the present-day inhabitants of Toronto.

During our mid-meeting break, you’ll have an opportunity to mingle with other members and guests, and drop by our information tables to find out about upcoming workshops, volunteer openings and other Branch activities and announcements. We’ll close out the evening with a short presentation by Branch member Sheelagh Hysenaj titled It All Started with My Great Uncle’s WWI Helmet.

We will be live-streaming this meeting for those who are unable to attend in person. For instructions on how to connect to our live feed, visit our Live Meeting Stream page. We hope you’ll be able to join us–either in person or on-line.

To find out  what’s in store for future Branch meetings, please visit our Meetings page or browse through our Calendar.

Please note that this will be our last monthly Branch meeting at the Burgundy Room. As of April, we will be meeting in our new location at Eglinton St. George’s United Church at 35 Lytton Blvd. west of Yonge between Eglinton and Lawrence.
