Special Events

More than 300 supporters and well-wishers were in attendance in March when the Society’s patron, the Honourable Hilary M. Weston, launched The Global Gathering Place website. This visionary new learning tool was created by the Society in cooperation with the Centre for Instructional Technology Development (CITD) at the University of Toronto at Scarborough. The Internet access will make the archives at the MHSO much more accessible to the general public and will be especially useful to history and social studies students from grades 7 - 12.

Professor Milton Israel, the Society’s longest serving Board member and current Chairman, was honoured at a concert held at Convocation Hall, University of Toronto on April 29. On this, the birth date of Duke Ellington, the Nathaniel Dett Chorale, one of Ontario’s leading choral groups, performed the "Best of Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts" in honour of Professor Israel.

The "Chair’s Brunch" organized and hosted by the Friends of the MHSO was held in Brennan Hall on April 25. More than 200 of the Society’s supporters were in attendance.
