North Toronto Historical Society Monthly Meeting
May 2021

Unfortunately, all our Fall 2020 meetings were cancelled due to the unavailability of the library meeting room. We had a successful AGM on Zoom in February as well as a regular meeting on Zoom in April. We will be having one more Zoom meeting this Spring:

Wednesday, May 26 7:30 p.m.   JEAN LUMB: A WOMAN OF MANY FIRSTS

Jean Lumb, C.M., was the first restaurateur and first Chinese Canadian woman invested into the Order of Canada. She and her husband owned Kwong Chow Restaurant that introduced Chinese food to the who's who of Toronto. A trailblazer and community spokesperson whose legacy lives on today, Jean played a pivotal role in changing immigration laws that separated families and in saving Chinatowns in Toronto and across Canada. Her daughter, author Arlene Chan will tell Jeanís remarkable story.

We will send you an invitation with details on how to join the online meeting. You can join us on Zoom by internet or phone.

Our newsletter, with notices of meetings, will be distributed to members as usual.

Stay safe!
