SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL SOCIETY OF OTTAWA
By Ronald I. Cohen
Sir Winston Churchill’s memory is very much alive in Canada’s capital. In this, the 70th anniversary year of both the Karsh photographic portrait of the Prime Minister and the rousing “Some chicken! Some neck!” speech in the Canadian House of Commons, an Ottawa society has at last been formed. Called the Sir Winston Churchill Society of Ottawa, it is now open to receive members. Its inaugural meeting, under the auspices of the British High Commissioner to Canada, Dr. Andrew Pocock, will aptly be held on November 30, 2011, the 137th anniversary of Sir Winston’s birth. The guest speaker at the inaugural event will be Allen Packwood, Director of the Churchill Archives Centre. Anyone wishing to join the Ottawa Society and/or to attend that inaugural event, should contact Ronald Cohen at [email protected] or by telephone at 613-298-7171.
