Due to the temporary closure of the Saanich Centennial Branch this program has been cancelled until further notice.

Join Dennis Minaker, author of Gorge of Summers Gone, for a presentation recounting the glory days of the Gorge Waterway – a time of regattas, swimming galas, high diving, camping, picnicking, amusement rides, outdoor concerts, a Japanese Garden, moonlight cruises, mansions, and more. Registration begins September 3.

Presented in partnership with Saanich Archives.
