Aylmer Heritage Association resumes in-person activities with upcoming events
After two years of the pandemic, the Aylmer Heritage Association (AHA) has launched its programming for the 175-year anniversary of Aylmer. The first event will be a talk with historian Michael McBane about John Egan, the first mayor of Aylmer. The event discussing Egan’s story, which McBane wrote a book about, will take place on Sunday June 5th at the AHA building located at 495 chemin d'Aylmer.
The event is free and everyone is welcome to join in on the celebration to learn more about Aylmer’s history.
Dominique Dufour, coordinator at the AHA says that there will be a series of events throughout the summer to celebrate Aylmer’s 175th anniversary. AHA is currently planning the events and the full programming is to come. Residents can look forward to a geocaching event as well as other engaging events that will be announced throughout the summer.
“We are very happy to be opening back up and to connect with the public again,” said Dufour. AHA will also be resuming their annual plant sales on June 11th.
