Womens' Suffrage Centennial 1993

The Stratford District Council celebrated this by making a new park with Camellia trees. People were encouraged to nominate a woman to be remembered with a tree. Each person to be remembered had a story written about them and these will all be put into a book. Noreen CAMPBELL thought this was a good idea, and with the help of her sister Bidge and cousin-in-law Grace, three women in our family have been remembered. The stories of the lives of these remarkable women follow here.
