Are you looking for skeletons in your closet, or for family ghosts from days gone by? If so, you will be interested in the up-coming presentation Lost in the Archives: Lake Country’s past through letters, diaries and journals. This public lecture, hosted by the Lake Country Heritage and Cultural Society will be held at the Creekside Theatre, 10241 Bottom Wood Lake Road, Lake Country (Winfield), on Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. Doors open at 1:00 p.m. Admission is by donation.
This presentation by Laura Neame will delve into the history of Lake Country. With the aid of photographs and material from the archives at the Museum in Lake Country, Laura will bring to life some of the fascinating history of this area.
Laura is the archivist for the Lake Country Museum and although she has lived in the community for only eight years, she has become increasingly intrigued by its people, stories and history. Laura grew up in Toronto, but as she puts it “left as soon as possible for BC”. She attended both Simon Fraser University and UBC. She earned a BA in English and a Masters in Library Science. She has extensive experience in various BC college libraries, culminating in her position as Director of Libraries at Okanagan College from 2005 until 2010.
