The Plan

Mission: To make the history of Kenora, Its people, Its Institutions, It's Buildings more readily available to the public

Project: As time permits I will attempt to collect information from books and personal interviews about individuals, buildings and institutions in Kenora.

Priorities: Writing personal summaries of 102 Presidents of the Rotary Club between 1921 and 2020 the 100th annivesary of Rotary.

Since the beginning of this project I have had to moved the bibliographies of individuals to fines beginning with their surname. This project will take some time and I apologize for the inconvenience.
