Early Days in Westboro Beach – February 17

Please mark your calendar to join the Westboro Beach Community Association in learning about the EARLY DAYS IN WESTBORO BEACH

When: 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, February 17

Robert N. Grainger, an expert on local history, has chaired the History Committee of the Westboro Beach Community Association since 1995. In 2005, he authored Early Days on Westboro Beach: Reflections and Images. This was the centennial year of the creation of the Police Village of Westboro. For a later project he helped the Woodroffe North Community Association produce a history of the village of Woodroffe entitled River, Road and Rail: Woodroffe Memories, published in 2011. Currently, he is preparing a history of the Champlain Park neighbourhood, previously known as Riverside Park. He is one of the most knowledgeable people around when it comes to the history of Old Ottawa West.
