Wales Home Presentation

Just recently, on November 8, Claire Lindell and Barb Angus gave a presentation at the Wales Home in Richmond, Quebec.  Marian Bulford accompanied them and read out Dorothy Nixon’s brand new story, Biology and Ambition, written especially for the residents. Everyone was impressed by the WWI artifacts on display at the residence.
