November 18 meeting at OSCVI - Note change and time

Wednesday, November 18, 2015 at 4:00 pm O.S.C.V.I. 

 Owen Sound Dave Alexander and Ryan McManaman, history teachers at OSCVI, received the Governor General’s Award for excellence in Teaching History in November 2014. These teachers introduced local history to their students by assigning them to research and study individual former OSCVI students who served and were killed during the First and Second World Wars. From this research the students developed “soldier packs” of digitized information on their assigned soldiers. This inspiring project found the students taking responsibility for preserving the memory of local soldiers who died at about their own age. 

The teachers and some of their students will be making a presentation on their special project in the Theatre Arts Room of OSCVI.

This will be followed by a visit to the Memorial hall and the Heritage room to observe the projects firsthand.

Bayshore Broadcasting - Its History - the October Meeting

 Seventy-five years ago, March 1st was an exciting day for the people of Owen Sound when CFOS took the air. Today, we have so many choices in how we get the news. Radio is only one of these.

Wednesday, October 21, 2015 at 1:30 pm Owen Sound
Bayshore Broadcasting Corporation, one of Ontario’s fastest growing private broadcasters, was built around AM 560 CFOS which celebrated its 75th anniversary on March 1st, 2015. Originally operating with just 100 watts at 1470 on the dial, CFOS continues to be the favourite radio station of the citizens of Grey and Bruce counties.

Today the Owen Sound studios are also home to Mix 106 and Country 93 on the FM dial while Bayshore Broadcasting also has FM stations in Port Elgin, Goderich, Wasaga Beach and Orillia. Join us at “the radio station” to hear about the past and observe how radio works today.
