CANADIAN SOCIETY OF LAKELAND, RG5602, 1936-1996

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains the records of the Canadian Society of Lakeland from 1936 to its dissolution in 1996. "The first Canadian Picnic in Lakeland in many years was held in the Civic Centre on March 9, 1957." There were 150 people in attendance. At the next meeting, the Second Annual Canadian Picnic in Lakeland, 250 attended. When the organization decided to disband in 1996, it was down to 10 members.

The first president was Howard Malotte. It appears that Helen Doupe was the last elected president. Brian Rice chaired the final meeting at which the members voted to dissolve the organization.

The collection includes minutes, financial records, members names, local addresses and home towns, and a letter from Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau.

Materials were donated by Brian Rice and are organized into Subject Files.
