Presentation by Janine Carroll for Founders Day and Genealogy:
  • Founders Day began in 2004 celebrating 100 years of Main Street Camrose
  • Next year will likely be the last one but the celebration will change into another historical event.
  • D.R. Francouer is being honored. He is credited with paving main street and was one of the Top 100 entrepreneurs who built the province of Alberta.
  • Camrose had the highest number of votes per capita in favour of prohibition (1915).  If you were caught drunk and disorderly in the streets, you got 3 months of hard labour.
  • Janine is the current president of the Genealogical Society and works at the museum.  Next year is the 50 year celebration of the Camrose Museum.
  • Full schedule of Founders Day events at www.foundersdays.com.
    Grant Gillette gave a brief preview of an upcoming presentation on medical marijuana.  A great resource to view is the Dr. Sanjay Gupta documentary on weed.
    Next week’s meeting is a Club Assembly.
    50/50 pot is $403 and the winner is Paul Pedersen who drew a 6 of Diamonds.
