Eastern Townships Canadian Club
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.
