Although it is April, hockey is still on the minds of the people in Grey and Bruce counties. I suppose elsewhere too because of the National Hockey League playoffs. Hockey is the theme for the April meeting.
Wednesday, Apil 20 at 1:30 p.m. the Grey County Historical Society will meet in Tara (in neighbouring Bruce County) at the Cyclone Taylor Community Arena. Author and sports historican Eric Zweig will speak of Tara's homewown historical hero, Hockey Hall of Famer, Cyclone Taylor, the subject of his book Star Power. Eric will talk about his research for the book and the accomplishments of Cyclone Taylor. Eric will also read from his newest book, Fever Season, about the cancellation of the Stanley Cup in 1919 due to the Spanish flu.
A short annual meeting will follow at 2:45. The nomination report for executive and board of directors will be presented. Several constitution items have proposed changes to be voted on.
The Cyclone Taylor Community Arena is at 150 Hamilton Street Tara. [1 block west of Yonge Street turn at Mary Ann in Tara]
We hope to see you there.
