Join Heritage Sarnia-Lambton on Wednesday, November 11 for the digital panel presentation Home and Away: Sarnia-Lambton at War.
In this third digital panel presentation, heritage professionals from across Lambton County will be recognizing our war veterans. Join us as we discuss the incredible stories about the sacrifices that were made by our military overseas, as well as the contributions of brave, local men and women on the home front. This presentation is a great opportunity to participate in a virtual celebration of our men and women in the military this Remembrance Day.
“Participants will hear stories and discussions that provide a local context and connection to historical events,” said Dana Thorne, Curator/Supervisor, Lambton Heritage Museum, who will also be moderating the event. “We will learn about five men from Plympton-Wyoming who died in the last 100 days of WWI, fundraising efforts in Arkona by the local women’s institute and the Red Cross, Imperial Oil’s contributions to WWII, the role of Lambton County’s regimental bands and more.”
The presentation will be held on Wednesday, November 11, 2020 from 7 – 8 p.m., and pre-registration is required online through Zoom.
Panelists include: Erin Dee-Richard, Oil Museum of Canada; Nicole Aszalos, Lambton County Archives; Laurie Mason, Moore Museum; Kailyn Shepley, Sombra Museum; Glenn Stott, Arkona-Lions Museum; Gord Mackenzie, Plympton-Wyoming Museum; and David McLean, Forest Museum.
