History Prize at the Fall Fair
1st Prize Winner
Congratulations to Diego Lauricella winner of the first annual WTHHS fair prize! Diego shared his Canadian / Italian family history with us on a well-made poster.
Diego's mother's family came to Canada from Germany in 1838. His father came to Canada in 1990 and became a Canadian citizen in 2014. Diego is the grandson of Andrew and Barbara Detzler of Wellesley.
You can see Diego's poster in our historical room during the ABC Festival this weekend.

We were fortunate to be allowed to borrow and scan a scrapbook created during the 1940s and 1950s. Subjects include news of local interest, the war, weddings, funerals and even some international news of note. Click on the image below to see more information about the scrapbook and how to view it.
