Gathering your Memories of the Lake of Bays Area
The Lake of Bays Heritage Foundation (LBHF) is looking for people with memories and experiences from the early 20th century about the lake and surrounding communities. The LBHF has enlisted the services of Andrew Watson, a local historical and environmental PhD student, who will conduct interviews and create a permanent record of memories, recollections and events of past times. The work has just begun and we hope to hear about people to contact. Depending on responses, interviews will take place throughout the summer of 2013. We also welcome pre-written memoirs and recollections of past and present residents. Without a system to identify residents and visitors and collect their stories, we risk losing this history forever.
If you, your parents, grandparents or others have a history at Lake of Bays, you have a role to play in building our personal history bank. Please send your suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (416) 284-0389.
