Big thanks to our generous sponsors!
Just in time for our Annual General Meeting, we are pleased to publish our Annual Report to the Community, as well as the minutes of the 2018 AGM.
Come and hear a fascinating, free talk on the life of Dr. T. Glen Hamilton, his research into psychic phenomena and the possibility of life after death. His former home, Hamilton House, is a well-known building in Elmwood at 185 Henderson Hwy; the Hamilton family hosted many prominent guests over the years, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!
The presentation will be given by East Kildonan resident Linda Horodecki, who’s a retired archivist with the Manitoba government. It will cover both Dr. Hamilton’s paranormal investigations and his civic leadership. Linda has given talks on the subject previously at WPL and the Elmwood EK Active Living Centre.
The event will take place Sunday afternoon, February 2, 2020 from 2 to 4pm at the Big Red Church at 127 Cobourg Avenue. Admission is free.
