Dr. Pamela Shaw to present at monthly meeting

The first monthly meeting will be hosted September 1 in Qualicum Beach

The Qualicum Beach Historical and Museum Society is hosting their first monthly meeting after taking a break over the summer.

Reconvening on Tuesday, Sept. 1, the society is bringing in Dr. Pamela Shaw as the guest speaker of the evening which is open to the public and membership alike.

Shaw is a geography professor at Vancouver Island University and she’s played a key role in developing the University’s new Master’s of Community Planning program. She’s also a research director with the Mount Arrowsmith Biosphere Region and its affiliated Research Institute (MABRRI).

“We’ve started opening (our monthly meetings) to the public,” explained museum manager Netanja Waddell. “It’s an interesting topic and we think it will interest the wider public.”

Waddell said the presentation will be around 45 minutes and there will be a time for attendees to have coffee, tea and refreshments.

The meeting will be hosted Tuesday, Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre located at 747 Jones Street.

Admission is free but there’s a suggested donation of $5. For more information contact 250-752-5533.
