Warren Stauch loves local history and heritage, which is evident by his many speaking engagements and his popular shunpiking tours. Also, he has a great fondness for Mills, and was commissioned by the Grand River Conservation Authority to undertake an inventory of Mills in the Grand River Watershed. He claims (and rightly so) that mills were the first major industrial component of a community and discovered that 10 mills are currently open to the public; 23 are privately owned, and 9 are preserved as ruins.

Every member is invited to hear Warren speak about these important heritage sites.

And you are welcome to bring a friend…
