Grey County Historical Society Meets: WI Tweedsmuir Histories
Grey County Historical Society General Monthly Meeting for March being held at Grey Roots. This event is open to the public.
The meeting will begin in the theatre. We will have a behind the scenes tour of the Archives. A special focus will be the Tweedsmuir histories, a project of the Women’s Institutes. Operating under the motto, “For Home and Country”, the many branches of the Women’s Institute have been serving Grey County for more than 100 years. The first branch established in Grey County was the Kemble Women’s Institute. Organized just six months after the charter branch at Stoney Creek in 1897, it was the third branch established in the world. Over the years, 99 branches have come into and out of existence in Grey County. Grey Roots Museum & Archives is now home to over 90 WI Collections.
