The event will be held on June 6, 2017 from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. It promises to be an enlightening evening as the talk will cover cemeteries and memorials from Amsterdam to Paris. It is quite timely in that July 1st is the 101st Anniversary of the Battle at the Somme.

Canadian Historic Battlefields: memorials and cemeteries: Amsterdam to Paris

Visit some of the most iconic historic locales of the twentieth century, from Amsterdam to Paris to Gllipoli. Al Sangster will focus on WW1 and WW11 battlegrounds and memorial sites, as well as associated historic towns and villages.

WW1 sites include Ypres Salient and the Somme area, including Vimy Ridge and Beaumont Hamel. WW11 sites include Dunkirk; Dieppe and Normandy with Amsterdam, Brussel and Bruges.  In addition, Camp Westerbrok will be featured. Lest we forget, this talk is particularly poignant as we celebrate Canada 150, because July 1 is not only the 150th anniversary of Confederation, but is also the 101st Anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, a defining moment in the history of our nation.

GTHS presents "What Went Down in Struggle Town?"

  • Goulbourn Museum

Tracey Donaldson, Acting Manager along with Acting Education Officer Sarah Holla from the Goulbourn Museum, present – What Went Down in Struggle Town? This presentation will examine the settlement, historic figures, and structures, which have defined the narrative of Stanley’s Corners.

Settlement of land in Upper Canada became a priority for the British Government following the conclusion of the War of 1812. Discharged soldiers who accepted land grants were the first to settle in Goulbourn with their presence creating a line of defense for Upper Canada against the Americans.

                 Belden’s Atlas 1879

                 Belden’s Atlas 1879

At the intersection of 9th line and Regional Road 5 (Flewellyn and Huntley Roads), a small community known as Rathwells Corners grew as a busy stopping point between Richmond and the Upper Ottawa Valley. By the 1850’s John Rathwell an early school teacher taught at a school located just west at Black’s Sideroad. Also his wife kept a stopping place or hotel at Rathwells Corners. By 1879 there was a store, St. Thomas Church, a saw mill, and a school. Later the community also supported a cheese factory, cement factory, post office and blacksmith shop. Eventually the Rathwell’s sold the Hotel to John Manchester and in turn to Jonathon Stanley. The small community then became known as Stanley Corners. It was nicknamed “Struggle Town” by the early Irish settlers, the history of Stanley Corners is marked by success, prosperity and tragedy.

Were the settlers justified in nicknaming the community Struggle Town?

This presentation at the Goulbourn Museum, Saturday, May 13, 2017 starting at 1:30pm accompanies the Museum’s outdoor exhibition, which will formally launch during the summer event, Father’s Day Flashback: Ireland’s Own in June 2017.  As usual, attendance, parking and refreshments are free.  And remember, “tell a neighbour, bring a friend.”

Lafferty's Wake, a wonderful interractive play with Irish humour and song, is the second in ITR's special series celebrating Canada's 150th birthday. This time, ITR is paying tribute to the Canadian Mosaic, our cultural heritage from afar. Though Lafferty's Wake is a nod to the strong Irish heritage in the south end of Ottawa, ITR will also be honouring the other beautiful and diverse cultures in our area through its Facebook and twitter accounts. 

About Lafferty's Wake

Charlie Lafferty is being waked in grand style in his home away from home, the local pub. Come and join Charlie's widow, his sweet daughter, bumbling son-in-law, the parish priest, and the savvy innkeeper as they celebrate the life and times of ramblin', gamblin' Lafferty through stories and song. This is the second show in ITR’s celebration of Canada’s 150 birthday and is a reflection of the Canadian mosaic - our rich cultural heritage from afar.
