Join us for the  first of the “Community Heritage Series” for a presentation on the  history of regional health services by Larry Ferguson. It will be held  at the Cultural Centre at on Thursday, May 23 at 5:00  PM. “A Century of Local Healthcare” begins with the history of Red  Cross Outpost Hospitals in the 1920s, which later evolved into  satellites of Peterborough (St. Joseph’s) Hospital. The story leads to  the development of a county-wide corporation providing  health services. Learn about local initiatives, various community  challenges and collaborations, and the roles of individuals in  advocating for startups and maintaining essential components of  Haliburton within the provincial health system.  Additionally,  we will explore accounts from residents and archival collections from  the Cultural Centre.
