Come celebrate the opening of two complimentary exhibits: 'British Columbia's War 1914-1918' and 'Vargas Island Ranchers at home and at War' with a presentation from guest curator and presenter Stephanie Ann Warner. Stephanie has been researching the life of her grandfather Harold Monks Sr., a Vargas Island "rancher", cannery fisherman, wartime signaller, Lifeboat crew member and active Legion comrade.
Stephanie's presentation will use photos, historic documents, diary entries and memoirs to bring to life the experiences of Tofino and Vargas Island residents and how the First World War impacted their lives.
Join us for refreshments in the Legion and visit our exhibit at the museum before or after the talk.
Both exhibits 'British Columbia's War 1914-1918' and 'Vargas Island Ranchers at Home and at War' are at the Tofino Clayoquot Heritage Museum from March 21 - May 15, 2019.
