Disbanded soldiers of the War of 1812-1
A cavalcade of cars from The Richmond Community Historical Society are planning to review the legacy left by the disbanded soldiers of the War of 1812-14 who settled first in Drummond County. Later, many of these settlers moved to areas such as L’ Avenir, Ulverton and South Durham. It will take place on Saturday, June 8.
Cars will depart from the Museum, 1296 Route 243 in Melbourne Township at 1:30 p.m. and the United Church parking lot in Ulverton at 1:50 to visit various points of interest near the St. Francis River, and Major General Frederick George Heriot’s final resting place in Drummondville.
This tour coincides with the annual barbeque at St. Georges’ Anglican Church.
For reservation or inquiries about this guided trip, contact Don Healy at 819-826-2793 by Thursday, June 6.
All are welcome.
