Norm Christie and Canadign a hit!
Mood:  a-ok

 

Over 80 people turned out on Saturday the 19th of November to listen to Norm Christie talk about the Vimy Pilgrimage of 1934. When he finished Canadign showed us pictures of their efforts to record the carvings in the walls of the tunnels under Vimy Ridge. A fascinating afternoon that raised over $800.00 for the project. Thanks to one and all.
