switched my monthly nephrologist consult from 115pm to 800am in Penetang…. to accommodate an information session by the Jesuits in English Canada re the proposed recycling plant to be built near the Martyrs’ Shrine and Ste. Marie Among the Hurons.  In the evening I went to the Huronia Chapter meeting of the Ontario Archaeological Society to hear Jamie Hunter talk about a partial collection of glass beads from the Ball site, a Huron Village excavation conducted over twenty five years by Wilfrid Laurier University.

I was lucky enough to get asked to photograph a family farm collection of artifacts from the French contact period with the Hurons, therefore the first half of the 16th century. This was part of about thirty artifacts collected from the mid 1960s to the 1980s.
