SOS Toronto Chapter Revitalization 2013 -Meeting

Past and Present Members of Save Ontario Shipwrecks Toronto Chapter,

There will be a general meeting of the chapter on February 13, 2013 at the Radison Hotel, 401 and DVP (55 Hall Crown Place) at 7:00pm. The meeting will take place in the restaurant.

All past, current or prospective members are encouraged to attend. There will be some time to socialize and discuss the Toronto Chapter and its future. If possible / practical, we will also hold the chapter AGM as is required by our by-laws.

The Toronto chapter has a long history of being involved in maritime heritage and I hope that we can find some passionate individuals to carry this tradition on.

There is a strong mooring program, headed up by Raimund Krob which we want to continue in order to protect the region's shipwrecks and providing safe and secure access.

In addition there are opportunities to host nautical archaeology training programs and conduct projects both locally and across the province. The chapter has its own funds and currently there is over $10,000.00 in the provincial Heritage Fund for project work. There are wrecks to be surveyed, land plaques that could be produced, new divers to be educated on low impact diving and much more. The future is yours!

I am looking forward to seeing some friends, meeting some new ones and kick starting this chapter back on track!

If you have any questions about the meeting or anything to do with SOS, please do not hesitate to contact me.

President, SOS
