If you have nothing to do next Tuesday night....

With Angels & Demons breaking records at the box office, I'm sure our minds these days are all on secret societies and clandestine meetings, which is why I was more than pleased to uncover a secret society in our very own East York. Okay, it might not be THAT secret, but none-the-less, I have the feeling that not many people new to the neighbourhood have gotten the newsflash about this group of urban historians.

The East York Historical Society is a group that gets together every few months to chat about fun urban history items. They meet at S. Walter Stewart Library and have refreshments and guest speakers. From what I gather, it's free and open to anyone interested in this topic. I would go for the coffee and stay for the entertainment......

They are meeting Tuesday night (May 26) to hear Bill Gladstone speak. Mr. Gladstone is an author and Toronto genealogist. He wrote a book documenting 100 years of his families life, starting in Russia and ending in Toronto. He has some great insight into Toronto urban history. Probably worth a visit.

Refreshments at 7 p.m., presentation at 7:30.
