“Loyalist Day Celebration”
Saturday, June 19, 2021
Indigenous peoples were the first inhabitants of what we now call Ontario. A few Europeans settled or were stationed here in the 17th and 18th century.
The Loyalists started to arrive in numbers in 1784. As a colony, the nature of Ontario was first defined by Great Britain. But as the stature of Ontario formed and evolved, the Loyalist influence was important.
Finally in 1997, the Province of Ontario established Loyalist Day, to fall on 19 June each year.
Join members and guests in this recognition and celebration of the Loyalists and their descendants who arrived here.
The program will include:
• Loyalist Day
• My Loyalist Ancestor
• Quebec to Upper Canada to Ontario
• Loyalist Prayer
• Begetting Loyalist Day: 1875 to 1997
• Flag raising
