e2 – AWOL

Grade 10 students visited Abbotsford House last week for a presentation by historian and founder of Lost Ottawa, David McGee. Lost Ottawa is a Facebook community and a book that brings Ottawans together for conversations about the city’s unwritten history. Mr. McGee spoke about various sites and events in local history, from the Grace Hospital, to a 1971 Black Sabbath concert at the Civic Centre, to the outdoor Dairy Queen at Merivale and Clyde!
