Friends of the South Grey Museum (In-Person and Virtual): “No Bed of Roses: Agnes Macphail’s Life in Politics” Documentary Premiere

December 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Friends of the South Grey Museum was incorporated by affiliation with the Ontario Historical Society in 2013.

Join the Friends of the South Grey Museum as we pay homage to Agnes Campbell Macphail — the Lady from Grey —on Saturday evening, December 3, 2022, at Annesley United Church, Markdale. Doors open at 6:30 pm: program begins at 7:00 pm.

Plan to be in attendance for the Premiere showing of a locally produced documentary: “No Bed of Roses: Agnes Macphail’s Life in Politics.” Through narration and readings this highly creative production showcases the talents of local personalities and is generously illustrated by regional photography and art.

One hundred years ago, Agnes Macphail made history when she took her seat in the House of Commons, Ottawa, as Canada’s very first female to be elected MP.

Join us for complementary coffee and desserts following the production. The Friends thank the Grey Bruce Community Foundation and the Municipality of Grey Highlands for funding support.

Free will donations appreciated. Masks optional, but recommended.
