Come and join BGOGS for our May General Meeting, May 28th Tuesday at 7:30pm at the L.D.S. Family Centre in Owen Sound. We have the privilege to have Richard Bentham for our quest speaker. His topic “Destitute to Successful, A Poor Man's Dream”.. The forebears of Richard Bentham fled the grinding, dismal circumstances of ordinary people in Yorkshire, England and Ireland in the mid 19th century. They arrived in Ontario as pioneers and faced daunting challenges simply to survive. Hope for a new beginning saw them through many hardships. The story of the Bentham Pioneers could be a template for the many thousands of pioneers that poured into Grey County. Afterwards join us for some chit chat and refreshments. Bring a friend or two
