Last month, the Churchill Society of Tennessee held a highly successful conference that drew attendees from across North America and Britain. This excellent example of what the local chapters of ICS are doing will continue next month with the annual dinner of ICS Canada.
Members and guests of the Churchill Society of Tennessee met in Franklin on March 23rd and 24th to hold a conference with the theme “Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory.” Chapter President Dr. John H. Mather welcomed International Churchill Society President Randolph Churchill, who served as the Keynote Speaker. Churchill’s interest in the American Civil War was a natural subject for conference speakers, but many other aspects of his career were addressed. Of special interest was an exploration of Churchill’s musical interests followed by an evening concert at the Nashville Symphony, which performed music inspired by the Holocaust. This provided a moving reminder of the evil Churchill was determined to defeat.
The International Churchill Society Canada and the Albany Club of Toronto will host their twenty-second annual joint dinner on May 10, 2018—the seventy-eighth anniversary of the day Winston Churchill became Prime Minister. The guest speaker will be former Ontario Premier Bob Rae, who will speak about “Churchill: Warts and All—Why His Courage Outweighs His Faults.” For details and to register, please visit the ICS Canada website.
