Ingersoll Street Names: Their Stories – April 20 at 2:00 PM
An on-line presentation hosted free of charge for all district residents over 50 years of age by the Ingersoll 50+ Activity Centre. (You do NOT need a Centre membership for this presentation.)
“ON THE STREET WHERE YOU LIVE”
Presented by Scott Gillies, Curator of the Ingersoll Cheese & Agricultural Museum
Ingersoll resident or not, these and other stories behind street names are fun. Both famous author Jane Austin and the war of 1812 are linked to one Ingersoll street.

A question and answer period follows.
