The Place to Find All Things Churchill

70th Anniversary of the Atlantic Charter – August 13th and 14th, 2011

Come celebrate with the Atlantic Charter Foundation, the International Churchill Society of Canada and the Atlantic Council of Canada as we celebrate the historic “First Summit” meeting between President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill, which produced the Atlantic Charter.

On Saturday August 13th plan to join us for a special commemorative dinner at RCS St. John’s (formerly historic Fort Pepperrell), which will be attended by the Lieut. Governor of Newfoundland and Labrador. Eminent political scientist Peter Russell has recently published a new booklet about the Atlantic Charter, and he will be the guest speaker. For more information and for a registration form to attend this event please provide your contact information on the “Contact Us” section of this web-site. We would be very pleased to see you!

On August 14, 2011 the celebration will continue at the Atlantic Charter site which is located at Ship Harbour, Placentia Bay. Included in the ceremony will be a repeat of the order of service which took place on board HMS Prince of Wales in August 1941, as well as an interpretive talk, and a number of other special activities.

See the Calendar of Events for the full event and contact information

We look forward to seeing you!
