It is once again time for the Annapolis Heritage Society's annual general meeting. Could it only be a year since we last gathered to discuss the activities and upcoming events of the AHS? Evidently it is because my calendar tells me that the meeting will be held at North Hills Museum (5065 Granville Road, Granville Ferry) on October 21 at 7:00pm. The AGM is an excellent opportunity to learn about what the AHS has been up to and what we have planned for the future. This is also a great chance to meet the people who give their time and energy to preserving heritage in the Annapolis Royal region. You could also be among the first people to meet the incoming AHS board as they are elected.
Our presenter for the evening is Wayne Smith who works as an interpreter at North Hills Museum. Wayne has just finished his first season with us but he has a deep background in the decorative arts. Wayne will be drawing on some of his previous work experience with the National Gallery of Canada when he discusses the North Hills Museum collection and potential programming opportunities. This should be an interesting evening and a fresh look at how we could present parts of our story to museum visitors.
The image in today's post comes from the Charlotte Perkins collection at the AHS Archives. It really does not have much to do with the AGM but it was a cheerful image of people enjoying a picnic. I believe that the photograph was taken about 1915.
All for now,
