HIGHLIGHTS ON HERITAGE
EBENEZER PIONEER CHAPEL CELEBRATES 160 YEARS
The 2019 AGM was held at Ebenezer Chapel. David Cooke was the guest speaker. His presentation of Black Friday and the Avro Arrow was extremely informative and was enjoyed by all in attendance.
The Ebenezer, Toronto Gore Historical Foundation regularly participates in the annual Highlights on Heritage Day at Bramalea City Centre. Visitors to the 2019 display were able to find out more about the history of Toronto Gore, see a variety of old maps including aerial photos from when the Gore was almost entirely agricultural, and a few artefacts from the past as well as information about the Avro Arrow. ETGHF members enjoyed discussing Gore history with mall visitors.
On Sunday June 3, 2018 Ebenezer marked its 160 birthday with a celebration at the chapel. The programme included music by Jean and Kirby Julian, greetings and congratulations from Gurpreet Dhillon on behalf of the City of Brampton and Sonia Walters representing our original tenants as well as Ann Price's history of the chapel as told by Kirby Julian. Following the formal programme, MC Fred Julian invited attendees to the Alma Room for refreshments.
