This Thursday, November 7th at 7 p.m. at the Niagara Falls Public Library on 4848 Victoria Avenue in Niagara Falls, Ontario
A Brief Note from Doug Draper
Posted November 7th, 2019 on Niagara At Large
Marcie Jacklin, a Fort Erie, Ontario resident and great conservationist and expert on birds, and one of the people fighting to save Waverly Woods from developers in her community, was good enough to circulate the following note about what sounds like a very interesting presentation we can all attend.
Some of you may remember Snake Hill in Fort Erie as the place where a construction crew happened to come across the remains of several American soldiers from the War of 1812, who were then repatriated in a moving caravan of hearses crossing the Peace Bridge to the U.S. side.
Here is Marcie’s note –
Are you a history buff?
