If you're an enthusiast for Prince Edward Island history, you've likely heard of the Brothers and Sisters of Cornelius Howatt. (If you're not familiar with the group, I wrote an op-ed about the organization, and their namesake, that you can read here.) This year marks the fortieth anniversary since the Brothers and Sisters waged their year-long campaign to address major issues affecting Island society. In order to mark the occasion, former members and supporters of the group will be gathering on August 8th. Founders Harry Baglole and David Weale will be present, and I'll be giving a talk titled "The Pie-Faced Kid at 40: The Legacy of the Brothers and Sisters of Cornelius Howatt."
Stories will be shared, and hopefully some photographs and memorabilia will surface. If you're in the Charlottetown area on August 8th, do stop by the Irish Cultural Centre and join in the fun. There is no admission charge, and the event begins at 7:30 PM.
