2012 marks Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee, the 60 year anniversary of her ascent to the throne. At the June general meeting, BCGS members will be celebrating with a strawberry tea and members with connections to her or memories of her reign so far are invited to bring displays. On display will be a photograph of the Queen from the collection of Ford Hill.
The winners of the BCGS Family History Book Award Competition for 2011 will be announced at the meeting, and some of the authors will be present and will have books to sell and sign.
BCGS General Meetings: the second Wednesday of every month, 7:30 pm at Edmonds Community Centre, 7282 Kingsway (Kingsway & Edmonds), Burnaby V5E 1G3.
BCGS members are now collecting pennies to contribute to the fund for a Coat of Arms for the Society. Any pennies will be accepted at all general meetings. Volunteers will roll them, if need be.
