Please join us for our annual book fair. This year we are highlighting childrens books and there will be lots of great deals to be had. We also have four local authors who will be reading from their books at various sessions throughout the day. They are Tina Dine, Jean Rae Baxter, Zig Misiak and Marty Pullin.
Come out and find some great deals - and early Christmas gifts. Lunch can be purchased - great sandwiches and homemade desserts.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
