Perth Historical Society October lecture

The Perth Historical Society meets on October 17, 2013 at the Perth Legion when author Arlene Stafford-Wilson will present excerpts from her three entertaining books of stories and reminiscences of growing up in Lanark County - its people, pastimes, schools, sports, local stores, and our early traditions.

Arlene will also provide a preview of her new book, “Lanark County Calendar”, to be released on November 2nd, which recalls life on an early county farm, over the changing seasons.  Beginning with family preparations for an old-fashioned Christmas, the book presents stories of the seasons, moving through spring and maple syrup, summer, and, finally, fall and harvest time, with a nostalgic tour for a day at the Perth Fair.
