The Waterdown Museum of History is opening its doors for another year Nov. 11 with a slate of new featured exhibits — including one highlighting the 30th anniversary of the end of the Cold War. The museum, which is curated by students in the school’s Grade 11 genocide and crimes against humanity class, will also include new virtual reality googles — direct from the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam.

 Flamborough Archives and Heritage Society  now located in Waterdown!

Come in and visit this marvelous museum!
 

   Book of Remembrance 

 We now have a Book or Remembrance on display inour lobby.  Also, please see the photo of our Veteran’s Board.  Each week, I will feature a member of our community who made the supreme sacrifice in the service of our country.  We had one causality from the Boer War and a number from WW I and WWII.  We are very grateful to the Flamborough Archives for sharing this information with us.  Over the years, a very dedicated group of volunteers from Archives have been researching and putting together the story of these local heroes.  The book is a work in progress and I have put my contact information near the book in case someone has additional material to add to our files.  Presently, we have the Boer War and WW 1 covered.  Shortly, we will be adding the information about our WW II casualties.

I was I was talking to several people around town today that where watching the parade,,,, word came along the parade route that the "Tanks are coming" . Everyone was waiting in anticipation. They are not tanks, but CDN Forces - APC - M113 (Armoured Personnel Carriers)  Thats OK, they won't know the difference.   Even in the video you can hear them saying,,,,,,,, tanks, tanks,  the tanks are coming.
People where giving the thumbs up, pumping their fists in pleasure and the kids had a smile from ear to ear.
This was something that was totally different and people could not believe their eyes.  At the end of the parade, we let anyone take a seat inside that wanted too. The best part is when they learned that CDN Forces soldiers sat in
these seats during Afghanistan conflict.
Alan Bot and his APC's surely put the Waterdown Legion on the map!  I don't think anyone will ever forget seeing the Santa Parade  of 2019!!!!!
Thank you Sheila, thank you Drew,
Bob Thomas and everyone for making this happen.
