56th Annual Memorial Banquet, Postponed to May 12, 2021
The Covid-19 virus which has caused such hardship around the world has forced us to end a 55 year run of Annual Memorial Churchill Banquets, the longest-running in the world.
The 56th Annual Memorial Banquet will take place a year later than originally planned. Our Guest Speaker is booked and tickets will once again go on sale in September.
Please continue to watch this space for updates.
Join us on May 12, 2021, as we welcome Mr. Allen Packwood, OBE, Director of the Churchill Archives Centre and Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge. Mr. Packwood is the author of "How Churchill Waged War: The Most Challenging Decisions of the Second World War".
You can also register for the Banquet by mailing a cheque to our Executive Secretary Mr. Bob Chaffee, 4712-55 Ave, Beaumont, Alberta T4X 1J7.
The Sir Winston Churchill Society of Edmonton isn't all about the things Winston Churchill did in the past (however profound they may be.) It's about his convictions, his wit, his power to inspire and how those qualities are necessary for our community. We want to incorporate his values, and spread his ways. We want to share what we have learnt and discovered, from him, with you.
