Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke

The Eastern Town­ships Cana­dian Club will fea­ture Heather Darch who will present the 100 Ob­jects pro­ject on Wed., Oct. 9 at noon at Hô­tel Le Prési­dent in Sher­brooke. Heather Darch is an his­to­rian and the cu­ra­tor of the Mis­sisquoi Mu­seum. She has writ­ten nu­mer­ous ar­ti­cles about Mis­sisquoi County’s his­toric past and is a reg­u­lar con­trib­u­tor to the news magazine “Le Tour.”

In part­ner­ship with his­tor­i­cal so­ci­eties, mu­se­ums and com­mu­nity groups across Que­bec, the Que­bec An­glo­phone Her­itage Net­work cre­ated a por­trait of the English-speaking com­mu­ni­ties of Que­bec in all of its di­ver­sity through a web­site and DVD pro­ject called “Sig­nif­i­cant Ob­jects for Telling Iden­tity.” Funded by the Depart­ment of Cana­dian Her­itage the “100 Ob­jects pro­ject” as it came to be known, is a web­site that con­tains his­toric im­ages and doc­u­ments, beau­ti­ful pho­to­graphs of ob­jects, sto­ries and es­says, and videos as well as an his­tor­i­cal time­line based on English-speaking his­tory. The re­sult is a fas­ci­nat­ing look at the his­tory of Que­bec through the ob­jects of the English-speaking com­mu­nity from the Gatineau to the Gaspé and from Hem­ming­ford to Chisa­s­ibi.

Join the Eastern Town­ships Cana­dian Club for a fas­ci­nat­ing pre­sen­ta­tion and de­li­cious meal at 12:00 on Wednes­day, Oct. 9 at Hô­tel Le Prési­dent, 3535 King West in Sher­brooke.
