Put the 17th of November 2012 on your calendar for the Great War Forum and Militaria Auction. More detail at http://currieproject.ca/the2nd
On the evening before, Frank Corring will be holding a militaria auction at the Caradoc Community Centre. See the website for details. Catalogues are available.
April 16th was a particularily successful event for the project. After all the expenses and overheads, we ended up with about $1500.00 for the project. There is another planned for November, so watch this spot for more information. Thanks for your support
On the 15th of April we will be holding a Great War Forum and Militaria Show. Plans are completed on speakers for the forums and some displays and sellers are in hand. We need volunteers for the show for set up, manning booths, cashier, floor direction etc. Please contact Tim Gillies at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help. Thanks
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.

Next meeting of the committee is the 8th of December at the
Legion.Also remember that Norm Christie and Canadigm will be at the Westmount Library,
London, Ontario at 2:00 PM on the 19th of November.
Hope to see you.
Happy to report that Museum Strathroy Caradoc, who are a continuing
enthusiastic supporter of the Currie Memorial Project, have received a grant
from Heritage Canada to mount a touring exhibit of Currie's early life in the
Strathroy area. Well done
