The Club meets monthly, from September to May. The highlight of the meeting is a guest speaker, who talks about an always-interesting aspect of life in this area. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the community, and to meet, or reconnect with, new or old friends. Members also share information about discoveries they have made while exploring the area, so we all benefit from their adventure! Of course, there are always a few business items to take care of as well. See below for details on the next meeting.

Time: 7:00 (7.30 start time)

February 6, 2018, 7.30pm. (“Meet and Greet” starts at 7.00pm).
Wolfville Farmers’ Market, 24 Elm Ave, Wolfville NS.
Our guest will be Gary Ness who will give a presentation on the Dominion Atlantic Railway.
If you have ever wondered while biking or hiking the old railway trail what tales that old track could tell, If you’ve gazed at the railway hotels and thought about the ballrooms and the classic architecture and if you hear Gordon Lightfoot’s Railroad Trilogy song when he sings “we are the navvies who work on the railroad” then let your imagination soar and we’ll take you back to the days when the Dominion Atlantic Railroad was a thriving connection to the Canadian Dream. Come listen, question, see the wonderful photos of Gary Ness, Professor Emeritus, Kinesiology at Acadia U. and we guarantee you’ll see that old trail through different eyes.
