Haldimand County announces five new virtual programs at the Heritage Centre

Launching into the new year, the Heritage Centre is pleased to host five new virtual programs:

All That Jazz Presentation: January 18 at 7:00 p.m.
Take a look at life in Haldimand County and Canada during the 1920’s. There was a rapid expansion of agricultural production and exports that helped to fuel the overall economy. A number of inventions helped shape Canada, including the automobile, the airplane, the washing machine, the radio and the assembly line. The decade began with a roar and ended with a crash.

Cultural Cooking Program Workshop: January 19 at 1:00 p.m.
Most of our ancestors emigrated to Haldimand from other countries, bringing with them a variety of recipes from their homeland.  This workshop explores how many of these recipes have been adapted to form what we now call “Canadian Cuisine.”

Helping You Date Old Photos Program Workshop: January 25 at 7:00 p.m.
This hands-on workshop will help you learn how to date old photographs and learn some conservation tips, including how to store, scan and maintain your precious memories.

Winter Pastimes Presentation: January 26 at 1:00 p.m.
Wrap up the month with a look at the winter pastimes our ancestors enjoyed and how our various cultures influenced our traditional games.

Royal Visits Presentation: February 1 at 7:00 p.m.
This presentation is the first in a series of year long talks on the Royal Family in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II’s 70 years on the throne. This first talk focuses on the many visits that the Royals have made to Canada – from Queen Victoria’s son Albert, the Prince of Wales’ visit in 1860 to Queen Elizabeth’s 22 tours beginning with her first in 1951.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions all programming for January will take place via Zoom.
