Let the Silence Speak
Doug Massey and Keith Clark will present their new production as a dramatic reading. “Let the Silence Speak” is a story of how a disagreement of principle between two men broadens to envelope a third. It’s the time of the American Revolution. Patriot Edward, and Loyalist Benjamin are at each others throats much to the sadness of Little Abraham, an Onkwehonwe, man of the land, original person. When violence rules, those caught in the middle, those who are true neutrals, are just as much the victims of violence as those who use violence for their own ends.

Several of our local history publications are out of print. However, we have scanned some of them and they are now available on a CD. These include "Millgrove through the years" and "... and they came to East Flamborough". We also have copies of "Into the Cauldron: The Experiences of a CEF Infantry Officer During the Great War" , edited by Steven E. Sawell. Please check our publications page for more information. Some titles have a link to excerpts from the book, to give you a better idea of what is in it.
We are raising funds for the 'Move Back to Waterdown'. The Archives and the Society office will be in the new Waterdown Library and Community Centre building and we need funds for new furniture and moving expenses. Tax receipts will be issued for all donations of $25.00 or more.
We need your help
The Flamborough Archives is working on three projects and we are asking for your help .
The first is a planned book on the history behind the names of communities that exist, or did exist at one time, in Flamborough.
The second project is a compilation of the businesses in Flamborough, with an emphasis on Waterdown, from around 1850 onwards.
The third project is an inventory of street names in Waterdown, and the history behind the name.
We are looking for any material which would help with this research - photos, stories, advertisements or flyers etc. We would be happy to scan your original photos if you don't want to part with them.
If you have ANYTHING that can help, please contact the Archives at (905) 540-5161 or email@example.com
