“Growing up in Halifax in the 1940s and 1950s” will be the topic of discussion at the
annual meeting of the Halifax Historical Society on Friday, July 13.
Six people who grew up in Halifax during those years (Wayne Courser,
Lewis Sumner, Charlotte Miner, Jeannie Hardgrove, Lucile Rice and Lillian Brigham)
have agreed to participate, and more may also decide to join in.
Input from anyone will be welcome.
What has changed about Halifax, and what is the same? Did children in the pre-Internet,
pre-cell phone and even pre-TV era have more fun? Did they work harder?
What was it like to live in Halifax during World War II?
The meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Halifax Community Hall in downtown West Halifax.
It will begin with a short business meeting to elect officers.
Everyone is invited to this meeting, member or not, Halifax resident or not.
The meeting will be preceded by a potluck supper at 6 p.m. Bring a dish to share.
