MFNC’s 40th Anniversary Celebration

The inaugural meeting of the Macnamara Field Naturalists’ Club was held on March 6, 1984 in the teacher’s lounge at the Arnprior District High School.

At the time, Michael Runtz was elected President, Eric Ridgen as Vice-President, Kevin MacDonald as Treasurer, Adolf Vogg as Secretary, and Verna McGiffen and Sloan Watters as directors.

Soon, the meetings moved to the Arnprior Public Library where guest speakers were invited to speak on a wide range of topics at the club’s monthly meetings. The club’s Newsletter “The Lady’s-Slipper” was first produced in 1984.

Ever since, club members have shared their interest and experience – ranging from novice to expert – through monthly meetings, field trips and projects.

Join us in celebrating the many achievements of the club during our 40th anniversary event!
