Postcards For Peace

Postcards For PeaceThursday, November 23, 2017
Location: Craigleith Heritage Depot - 113 Lakeshore Rd. East

Reach out to a Veteran this November.

Postcards for Peace is a program initiated by Veterans Affairs Canada.  It provides an opportunity to send postcards that express messages of thanks to our Canadian Armed Forces memebers who have served or are still serving Canada in times of war, military conflict, and peace.

The Craigleith Heritage Depot will be supplying postcards for those who would like to participate.  Simply write you message of thanks to a Veteran, and let us know if you would like it to be mailed or displayed on wreath.  *Postage is not provided*

VAC pre-printed postcards are limited, but we will also provide blank postcards so you can design and decorate your own!

Storm Chasing with David T. Chapman

Location: The L.E. Shore Memorial Library Gallery - 173 Bruce St. S.

Join renowned photographer and "Storm Chaser" David T. Chapman for a visual presentation on Storm Chasing in Ontario.

"The Grey County and Blue Mountain region is a big part of our storm chasing. We often end up finishing at Thornbury when the storms start to cross Georgian Bay. We started our storm chasing there and have been in the area many times since for storms as well as other weather phenomena like northern lights right from the harbour in Thornbury. One of the many areas I cover is lightning and the various types, upward lightning, cloud to air, and other various forms. The neatest type I have captured a few times is the rare kind called “Bolt From the Blue Lightning”. It is when you have a storm in one area but the lightning strikes in another, where it is blue skies. That is why they say, don't go outside for at least thirty minutes after you have heard the last rumble of thunder. As for the presentation, it is really detailed on how a storm develops and how a select few become a tornadic supercell right here in our beautiful province, with lots of video action showing this amazing process."
