The Gloucester Historical Society will be hosting a presentation of a story from Alta Vista’s past on Sunday, November 10, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Gloucester South Seniors’ Centre, 4550 Bank Street, just south of Leitrim Road.
Our speaker is Claire Trépanier, author of “A Woman of Valour, The Biography of Marie-Louise Bouchard Labelle”. She tells the story of a woman who marries a priest 33 years her senior, raises a family in Rideau Park, Alta Vista, and then was abandoned by her husband, who returned to the priesthood.
Come and hear this fascinating story. Free admission and parking. Bus Route 144.
