British Home Child Day Activities

Come out to the Aultsville Train Station just west of Upper Canada Village Saturday, August 31st to see great-great-grandchildren of Home Child Mary Scott-Pearson Brownell cut the ribbon on the British Home Child Museum. Also grandchildren of former MPP Jim Brownell will be there. Thanks to Jim and his colleagues in the Ontario House of Legislature, September 28th is Brisith Home Child Day in Ontario.

As well, work is being done with the Black Creek Pioneer Village to get a "permanent" display set up on the British Home Children (for a six month period initially) and Black Creek will also be hosting events for British Home Child Day in 2014. Stay tuned for details as they become available....
