Kent Historical Society Presentation Night

The Revellers' Club

Tuesday, January 21, 2020 | 7:30PM | Studio One, Chatham Cultural Centre | Free

Lisa Gilbert, a KHS member, will tell the story of the Revellers’ Club, a group that  was developed to take advantage of the many natural features of Rondeau Provincial Park. It began in 1909, and is still active today, although less so. Over the years, the Revellers’ Club has played an important role in the leisure life of many men, especially from the Blenheim area, and its history has rarely been told. Lisa will delve into the club’s archives and will describe some of its highlights.

Fred Osmon: Taking Care of Business

Tuesday, March 17, 2020 | 7:30PM | Studio One, Chatham Cultural Centre | Free

Our very own Fred Osmon has been researching diligently over the past few years, and the fruits of his labours is a book called "Taking Care of Business". Telling of robberies gone wrong, of domestic disputes, and a few unsolved cases as well, the book deals with homicides in Chatham and Kent over the past 100 years. Fred will present some of the more interesting cases from his book, including perhaps, stories about the four police constables who have been murdered. Copies of the book will also be for sale.
