October is the month to shine for the Ladysmith & District Historical Society.
Two articles about The Society’s work in prestigious province wide magazines highlight the society’s projects.
Roundup, the Voice of the BC Museum Association ran a two page spread on the Legacy of Lives and Legends, A Canada 150 Heritage Video Project the society completed. Season One is available to view on the LDHS YouTube Channel. The series was nominated for an Outstanding Achievement Award by the BCMA.
The Fall 2018 issue of ‘British Columbia History’ featured The Great War and the Home Front – Reportage from the Ladysmith Chronicle by Esther Sharp. The article is based on some of the extensive research the society is doing on the Great War and Ladysmith’s role in it.
Meanwhile the Ladysmith Museum is busy with its new exhibits “Tale of a Trunk” and the “Great War” along with a Giant Maple Leaf Challenge. Can you find a Maple leaf larger than the one exhibited at the Ladysmith Museum? Found in 2011, it measures 23”across and 19”wide. Come on into the museum and check out the big leaf to beat!
