Friends of the South Grey Museum Speaker Series 2022: Aly Boltman, “Erasing Erasure: The Intersection of History and Social Justice at Potter’s Field”

April 20, 2022 @ 7:00 pm

The Friends of the South Grey Museum invite you to the Speakers Series 2022, developed and hosted by Barry Penhale. As someone with an interest in the Museum and its programs, you know how much we have all missed many activities during the COVID-19 pandemic, including our series of talks. We decided to welcome our supporters back to a virtual series for 2022, offered as webinars via Zoom with another eight programs, occurring as usual on the third Wednesday of each month, April to November, at 7:00 pm.

The Museum being no longer available as a host site, and with the continuing threat of COVID, going virtual was the obvious solution. Moving to a virtual delivery brings with it some additional costs, so we have made this a subscription series, but we’ve kept the usual at-the-door cost as a household fee of $10 per session. We are grateful to the Municipality of Grey Highlands for continuing their support for the presenters.

Join local history enthusiast Aly Boltman to hear about an unlikely, three-year journey that began with a dead-of-winter, candle-lit cemetery tour and ended with an award-winning, community-supported social justice project that unearthed the histories and dignity of more than 1,000 citizens all but forgotten in Owen Sound’s Greenwood Cemetery.

Aly has been living in Grey County for the past 19 years where she has served a number of professional roles in the arts and philanthropy sectors. Her writing has been featured in the Globe & Mail, Owen Sound Sun Times, The Architectural Conservancy of Ontario, the Ontario Museum Association and other publications. Ms. Boltman was recently the recipient of the YMCA’s Peace Medallion for her work leading the Potter’s Field Memorial Steering Committee, resulting in the new Potter’s Field Memorial at Greenwood Cemetery in Owen Sound, Ontario.
