Each presentation will take place in the Community Room at Welland Civic Square starting at 7:00 p.m.

This speaker series will precede the launch of a new book highlighting the Welland Canal Fallen Workers in 2017.  A monument to those who sacrificed their lives to build the canal is also planned.  Welland Public Library would be honored to have you attend this Speaker Series.
