Oral History Project DVD Launch of “The Four Jewels of Georgian Bay”
The communities of Midland, Penetanguishene, Tiny Township and Tay Township came together with Newfoundland film documentarian, Hugh Dimaline, in 2014 to capture the stories of people and places from North Simcoe in a DVD set for the community to share amongst themselves and with newcomers to the region. Four years in production, the resulting DVD entitled, “The Four Jewels of Georgian Bay” will be unveiled at a special evening which will bring together the over 100 people interviewed for this project.
Penetanguishene Centennial Museum and Huronia Museum are especially pleased that all of the interview material, uncut and unedited, will become a permanent part of their respective archives for future researchers and historians.
The four communities are invited to come together to launch the DVD “The Four Jewels of Georgian Bay” at the Huronia Museum on Friday, May 25th. Midland, Tiny Township, Tay Township and Penetanguishene are all featured in this brand new Newfound History Films project for the cost of $20 per copy.
The evening event will take place on Friday, May 25th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and will include light snacks and a cash bar. This event is FREE and is sponsored by Heritage Tiny Township, Heritage Tay Township, Heritage Midland, Heritage Penetanguishene, Culture Midland, Huronia Museum and Penetanguishene Centennial Museum & Archives.
