Drop by and check out our new sign at the park.
We found this in the archives, and I think you will all agree, it’s a real treat! For those who have had the privilege of hearing Uncle Nap tell the story in person, and those who have not, this is sure to be an enjoyable listen. Grab yourself a coffee or a beverage, as it’s a 27 minute run, but well worth it! Enjoy!

The St. Joseph and Area Historical Society would like to congratulate two of its members, Pat Rowe and Joe Wooden on receiving the Ontario Volunteer Service Award for the 20 years of service each of them has provided to the society. Due to Covid the award ceremony was done virtually. Click here for a link to the recorded meeting.
Unfortunately, the current Covid-19 restrictions on outdoor gatherings prevent us from hosting our traditional Remembrance Day service at the St. Joseph Memorial Park this year.
Instead we will be livestreaming a brief service from the park on our Facebook (FB) page. If you are a FB user, you can join us online by liking and following our FB page – “SJAHS” @ https://www.facebook.com/stjosephmuseum/ – and tuning in at approximately 10:50 a.m. on Wednesday, November 11th.
If you are unable to join us on Facebook for the live event, we will also post a recording of the service shortly afterwards at our website, https://stjosephmuseum.ca.
Thank you to the friends and neighbours who celebrated Breakfast in the Park with us this year. Again the weather was wonderful and the volunteers exemplary. A very special thank you to our sponsors and donors.
It was on Saturday November 10th. It was cold and windy. We remembered them and thought of what it was like at the end of World War 1.
