Living History Speaker series returns

Popular free event to be held every Wednesday in October

The City of Nanaimo and Seniors Connect is thrilled to announce that the popular Living History Speaker Series will return in October 2017! Please join us at the new assembly hall in St Paul’s Anglican Church (100 Chapel Street) for a wonderful night of speakers sharing true stories from their lives and about the history of Vancouver Island.

This free event will be held for the four Wednesdays of October 2017 between 6:30 – 8:00 pm (October 4, 11, 18, 25). Light refreshments will be provided and there is parking available at the church after 6:00 pm. Please enter through the entrance on Chapel Street (wheelchair accessible).

"This is a wonderful opportunity for people to come out and enjoy an entertaining evening at no cost,” said John Horn, Social Planner for the City of Nanaimo, “A great thing about this series is we get to learn more about members of our community and the history of this interesting city."

Each night will feature three speakers sharing true stories from their personal lives or the history of Vancouver Island. If you would like to be a speaker at a future series or need more information about the event, please contact Social Planning at 250-755-4464 and ask to speak to Karin Kronstal or John Horn.

The Living History Speaker Series, first held in November 2016 and February 2017, promotes Nanaimo's cultural vitality and community wellness by fostering social connectedness and is supported by the City of Nanaimo and Seniors Connect, with funding from Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors Program. Another series is planned for February 2018.
