Story

The Pelham Historical Society is pleased to announce an expansion to its online collection. This year we were again able to hire Sean Lewis under the Canada Summer Jobs Program of the Federal Government, and we decided to put some of the early issues of the Pelham District High School magazine, the Pnyx, on line. The school was started in Fenwick in 1922 as a continuation school with eight students, and became a high school in 1949.

Story

In 2012, the Pelham Historical Society, in partnership with the Pelham Public Library digitized the Pelham Historical Calendars and made them publicly available on the Internet. Find the link on the Pelham Library website or visit http://vitacollections.ca/pelhamlocalhistory. This year, student Sean Lewis is returning to preserve information about Pelham high schools. The plan is to scan as many documents and photos as possible to record the history of Pelham high schools, including Fonthill High, Thorold-Fonthill High, and Pelham District High.

Story

The Pelham Historical Society calendars are now available on line, thanks to a grant from the Canada Summer Jobs program. Local student Sean Lewis worked hard to scan these "out of print calendars" which were published beginning in 1977. This joint project between The Pelham Historical Society and The Pelham Public Library is hopefully the first of many designed to make the Pelham Historical Society's collection accessible to the wider community.
