Kingston's Curatorial Team To Present An Overview Of City Hall Artifacts

March 11, 2013 -

The Ambassadors of City Hall will welcome Paul Robertson and Sarah Forsyth from Kingston Cultural Services to Memorial Hall located on the second floor of the Kingston City Hall. Robertson, City Curator, and Forsyth, Civic Collection Technician, will present a fascinating look at Kingston's artifact collection on Wednesday, March 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. The public is invited and there is no charge to attend.

The talk takes place prior to the City Hall Ambassador's Annual General Meeting which begins at noon. City Hall has approximately 40 committed volunteer Ambassadors – tour guides who work May to September to share the exciting history of City Hall's artifacts and the personalities who built Canada's First Capital with visitors and residents alike.

Become an Ambassador

At the meeting, guests will be invited to apply to become an Ambassador of City Hall. Ambassadors meet people from all over the world and build civic pride, while walking in the same footsteps as Canada's first Prime Minister, Sir John A. Macdonald. Applications are available in City Hall at the reception desk or by contacting Elizabeth Cashman at 613-546-4291, ext. 1355 or ecashman@cityofkingston.ca.
