Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. We hope you enjoy reading about the upcoming fall lectures delivered by distinguished and engaging speakers addressing a variety of topics. These diverse lectures are designed not only to pique your interest but, hopefully, to incorporate them into your fall schedule!

Talks are delivered at centrally-located St. Andrew’s United Church, 117 Bloor Street East, 2nd floor, Toronto.

Robin Elliott, Professor of Musicology, who holds the Jean A. Chalmers Chair in Canadian Music at the University of Toronto, will open our fall series on Thursday, September 14th at 1:30 pm. He will reflect on 150 years of music making in Canada.

Looking ahead, we are delighted that Jean Alice Rowcliffe, an entertaining speaker, former royal nanny and author, will share her countless insights at the Luncheon on December 6th to be held at The National Club. Ms Rowcliffe, Canadian born, at 17 fulfilled her childhood dream to work for Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace; subsequently, graduating head nurse from the prestigious Norland College, she was chosen by Their Royal Highnesses Prince and Princess Michael of Kent to care for their children. After years of royal service the temptation of travel led her to California where she worked for author Danielle Steel and numerous other families.

We delight in welcoming women and men from all walks of life to our non-partisan Club. Sponsorship is not required. I look forward to greeting you.
