OTHSM and home children

The Osgoode Township Historical Society and Museum held their annual  Pioneer Day, the 35th, on Saturday July 23. From 10 AM to 4 PM, there was a full programme of music, book readings, and children's activities, this year on the theme of Irish pioneers. Here Robin Averill entertains with Irish songs and jokes.

Local heritage organizations, authors and an antique car display vied with the attractions of a strawberry social and barbecue for participants attention.

The museum was another attraction and where I learned that September 28 is to be celebrated as the first British Home Child day in Ontario with an event at Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg. I'll post more information on that as it becomes available.
