Meetings & Lectures: In a volunteer organization such as the GHS,
meetings are social, educational and a lot of fun. At every meeting, the Guelph
Historical Society welcomes a guest to speak on an aspect of history. These
lectures take place on the first Tuesday of October, November,
December, February, March and April. Meetings are held in the hall of St. Andrew's Church,
at the corner of Norfolk and Suffolk streets, at 7:30pm, and are
followed by refreshments. All are welcome, although we do ask for a $5.00 donation
