Last Monday, spring seemed to finally arrive in Toronto, and it was a beautiful evening to stroll the vicinity of University College at the University of Toronto. In a fuller-than-usual Room 179, WMSC board member Dr. Ann Gagné (left) addressed the WMSC on John Ruskin, the founding of the Ruskin Guild, and Ruskin's influence on Morris. Ann gave an inspiring and informative talk, and left most of us wanting to run home and start reading up more on this fascinating topic. Afterwards we retreated to the Prenup Pub for drinks (they have a fantastic beer selection), good food, and excellent conversation (pictured left).
Okay, so spring seems to have backed off a bit here, but we are confident that our St. James Cemetary Walk will be accompanied by warmer weather. Please join us on Saturday, May 7 at 2 p.m. Click on the "Future Events" tab above for all the details (including rain date!). You may recall that last year, this walk was postponed twice and finally shelved for 2016, due to a very rainy start to the summer of 2015.
Anyway, this walk will be followed by a pub gathering in the vicinity, so what's not to love? See you there!
