MEMBERSHIP IN THE SOCIETY HAS BENEFITS

2016 Annual membership dues are now available. Only $10.00 for a single membership and $15.00 for a family. Come and spend an interesting evening with your fellow members for seven monthly lectures meetings where you will hear some exciting, fascinating, and interesting tales, both fact and fictional on the history of Upper Canada and Rideau corridor areas. All of our speakers have been well known historians, authors, engineers, archaeologists, museum curators and even a member of the Antiques Road Show. Refreshments are served where you can meet the speakers and pursue any further information or just mingle with other members. We also offer a Newsletter four times a year which features historical highlights.

Besides the lecture series we have a number of actives that you can become involved with, we have our annual Blockhouse clean-up day. We need volunteers to run the Blockhouse on weekends prior to and after the official opening and we need scrutinisers to review and mark the annual Blockhouse Student Essay Contest. We have the Society Archives which continually need cleaning, cataloguing, and filing. All sorts of interesting things for the history buff inside us.

Don't delay - take out or renew your membership today!
