This is our Annual General Meetin and elections will take place.Is it your turn to take on a role? Financial Reports will also be approved.
Following the AGM, Richard Draffin will talk about the Canadian Books of Remembrance.
The Canadian Books of Remembrance commemorate the more than 120,000 Canadians who have given their lives in the service to our country. The eight Books on Parliament Hill have been lettered, illuminated, and bound by hand. Currently, the calligrapher responsible
for new entries and corrections is Richard Draffin of Ottawa. His presentation on these national treasures will be from a calligrapher’s point of view. He will discuss scripts, tools, materials, design with personal experiences
working on the Books of Remembrance.
A short Youtube video on the Room of Remembrance where the Books are displayed was opened in 2019
