The Georgina Historical Society, as a not-for-profit organization, collects, preserves, promotes and interprets the rich history and heritage of all communities now known as the Town of Georgina.

Your Board is currently considering holding the AGM in December along with a small Christmas gathering if public facilities are re-opened within the Town.  It was suggested that the Kin Hall would be a good location as it is large enough to facilitate social distancing.  Further discussion about this will take place at the October and November Board meetings.

In connection with the AGM is the election of officers for any Board vacancies.  Our treasurer wishes to step down from that role and also the Board at the end of the term this year. It was advised that there are individuals who might be interested in joining the Board and/or filling the coming vacancy for treasurer.

We Need Your Help!

Our picture in the GHS calendar for the month of March, the last images of this building in our newsletter showed its demolition.  We are happy to announce that the adaptive reconstruction is almost complete and that the new schoolhouse is expected to be open to the public once the Georgina Pioneer Village resumes operations again this June.  What is wanted for the opening is images of its interior back in the day (if possible) and class pictures (there’s only six in the archives and they’re either poor quality or copies).  Also, a bit more historical information on the schoolhouse would be nice.  If you can help us, please contact Melissa Matt at the Village (905-476-4301 ext. 2284), Tom Glover, or Bob Holden.
