The Lindsay museum wants your memories

By Lindsay Advocate

Do you remember spending Saturday nights at the dance pavilion? How about when The Tommy Hunter Show filmed at the Academy Theatre? Did you work at a local factory? Did you serve in WWII? The Victoria County Historical Society (VCHS) wants to hear from you.

The VCHS is undertaking a project in 2019 to collect the stories of local seniors and preserve them in video and book formats to share with the community. The project, titled “Precious Memories”, invites all seniors to participate by sharing memories at fun and friendly discussion sessions throughout Kawartha Lakes. Spend time with other seniors, reminiscing about the old days. Look through photos. The full list of dates and locations is available on the website:

Please join the VCHS on Monday, July 15 for “Local History Day” at the Olde Gaol Museum in Lindsay from 12 – 3 pm. Bring photo albums and memories to share. Refreshments will be provided for this “Coffee and Conversation” event. Everyone is welcome to attend.

If you would like to volunteer to help with this event, an event in your area, or other VCHS activities, contact the VCHS for more information at . If you are interested in sharing your memories, or know someone who has a story to tell, contact Ian McKechnie at 705-324-3404 or .
