Just a follow up on our recent Luncheon on Sunday March 5th.
It was a great turnout with approx. 80 people in attendance. Our Guest Speaker John O’Brien, (Author of “Oak Island Unearthed) was captivating, as the audience held on to his every word. His theory on the Oak Island Treasure centered on the Aztecs of South America and their involvement with the Island. His explanation left many in the audience with a new insight on the possibility of what very well could have happened on Oak Island.
The feedback from many people in attendance is, that they would like to see more of these Luncheons, so that is something our Executive will be discussing at our next meeting.
We also had a silent auction on a beautiful painting entitled “ 3 Dories”, which was donated to our Society by the talented artist Cathy Hubley. “Thank You” Cathy for your wonderful generosity. When the bidding ended, Audrey Matheson was the winner of the painting. Congratulations and thank you Audrey.
These last few years have played havoc on our Society resulting in many events and membership dues being put on hold. Well we are back on track. Our Membership Chair-people Peter and Denise Wolfe headed up a membership table on Sunday and they are pleased to relay that we signed up ten new members and fifteen renewals. Lastly, thanks to our caterer Brian Forbes, for the wonderful lunch enjoyed by all and to everyone who supported our Society with their attendance. A special thanks to our hardworking dedicated Executive Members and our Guest Speaker the incomparable John O’Brien.
Well Done Everyone!
Don Edwards- President F.H.S.
