CSHS Website April 2018
The website continues to be updated as information and pictures become available. The GALLERY section is very informative as it provides a brief summary and pictures of what happened during each era. Recently many pictures from Lipa Park in St. Catherines were added to the GALLERY section highlighting their activities for the past 50 years.
We are looking for pictures of early days in Canada, such as depictions of one’s first job, completing the work contract, the start of various Slovenian organizations, etc. When submitting pictures of parents and grandparents from years ago, please provide some commentary to enable better understanding and perspective.
