Canadian Friends Historical Association

2014 Annual General Meeting

Saturday September 20, 2014

Sharon Temple, Sharon, Ontario

“Plough up the fallow ground. Thresh and get out the corn.”

A threshing session for the future of the Association

Please plan on joining us on Saturday September 20, 2014 as we discern a plan for the future of the Association. With over forty years of service, the Association continues to change and evolve as we strive to achieve our mission to preserve and communicate the ongoing history and faith of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Canada and their contribution to the Canadian Experience.

The day will begin with our annual general meeting to conduct the formal business of the incorporated Association. After lunch, members will be working in small groups to review and make suggestions on various aspects of the Association, culminating in a strategic planning document that will provide direction to the new Executive Committee. There will also be time for a tour inside the Temple and the surrounding grounds. The day will conclude with a harvest supper and keynote address. 

Professor Craig Heron (York University) will deliver the keynote address, focusing on the changing demands being placed on public history institutions in Ontario. Professor Heron is a former Vice-Chair of the Ontario Heritage Foundation, Chair and Board Member of the Workers' Arts and Heritage Centre, President of the Canadian Historical Association, Board Member of the Canadian Federation for Humanities and Social Sciences, and a Member of the Service Advisory Board, Library and Archives Canada.
