Plaques and Tangles

With information from the 2012 John Hopkins White Paper called 'Memory', we will distinguish between normal senior moments' and mild cognitive impairment and dementia. Note: The White Paper is available on Amazon for a fee. Join us in the Zoom Room to delve into this most interesting topic!! Facilitator: David Brown.

Escape from Colditz Castle

Reich Marshall Hermann Goering visited Colditz early in WWII. He declared the castle to be 'escape-proof'. Was he wrong! Come and see how a man educated in Irish catholic schools and a bookkeeper from Brandon, Manitoba pulled off one of the most famous World War II escapes. See how the Dutch pulled off an incredibly audacious escape and then did the same the next day. The presenter is closely related to one of the escapees and has recently visited Colditz Castle. The escapes will be illustrated using power point with pictures, diagrams, and maps. Facilitator: Mike Naish.
