Trundlebed Tales: Bringing Laura Ingalls Wilder, Children’s Literature, and History to Life
Fall 2016 Schedule for the L.M. Montgomery Society of Ontario
What Laura Ingalls is to the United States, Anne Shirley is to Canada. Her much believed and respected author, L.M. Montgomery, has undergone nothing short of a renaissance in scholarship, interest, organizations, conferences, and preservation since I made my trip to Prince Edward Island as my high school graduation present. Tonight I’m tipping the hat and sharing word of one of the organizations in Montgomery’s honor and sharing their fall schedule.

Dear friends and supporters of the LMMSO,
We’ve got a busy fall ahead!
October 29 is our annual Lucy Maud Montgomery Day, celebrating poetry in honour of the 100th anniversary of The Watchman and Other Poems. You can find the day’s agenda and the registration form at our Calendar of Events: http://lucymaudmontgomery.ca/calendar-of-events/
Members, please join us for our annual general meeting, November 2 at 5:30 at the Historic Leaskdale Church. We’d invite all our supporters to consider becoming actively involved with our volunteer organizing committee – a variety of jobs are available, with a great group of people. Please respond to this message if you’d like to find out more.
Our Maud’s Favourite Things Gift Show and Sale is Friday & Saturday, November 11 &12. We’re still looking for vendors, and it will be a big year as the site is also on the Rotary Christmas Home Tour on the 12th!
Finally, please join us for our community Christmas concert (November 26) and service (December 11).
We thank you for your support, and hope we’ll see you at some of these great events.
