“Lest We Forget” with Local Author Joanne McLaren

“Lest We Forget”, Who do we NOT want to forget? Who do we remember? Since West Lincoln consisted of 3 individual Townships prior to 1970, Caistor, Gainsborough and South Grimsby, there was no one plaque or list of these Veterans. The individual men were being forgotten.

Author Joanne McLaren researched several of these men to create a list for our local Archives. The information collected has been combined in the book Veterans of West Lincoln WWI which includes 185 biographies of West Lincoln Veterans — those who came home and those who did not.

We’d love it if you could join us in person for this event at the Fleming Library in Beamsville, Ontario at 7 PM on Thursday, November 16th.
