PDHS February Meeting

On 20 February the Perth & District Historical Society welcomes John McKenty with a continuation of his earlier talk on 'Joe Perkins' Life & Times' - a subject that has received a lot of attention recently. This will carry forward the popular, sometimes controversial, story of Joe Perkins, formidable Perth businessman from South Sherbrooke, and one of the genuine characters of this area's history.

As a reminder, John is a retired educator, author of several local history books documenting our area's people and businesses, dedicated volunteer at Stewart Park Festival and Perth Regional Heritage Fair, and recipient of the Perth Community Medal for 2018

The meeting is at 7:30 pm, at the Perth Canadian Legion Hall, 26 Beckwith Street East. A voluntary “Toonie Fee” (donation) is suggested for each meeting.
