The Friends of Fort George is planning a birthday bash to mark the 252nd birthday of Major General Sir Isaac Brock.
It will be held at Brock’s Monument on Oct. 6, as the life of the hero of Upper Canada is celebrated with special presentations highlighting his life, and birthday treats, which are being generously donated by one of the members of the Friends of Fort George.
The special day begins at 10 a.m. with a feature talk on the life and times of Brock. At 10:45, cupcakes will be served at the monument, and that will be followed by another feature talk at 11 a.m. on After the Battle of Queenston Heights: What Happened to Brock After the Smoke Cleared.
“This event provides us with a unique opportunity to focus on the life of Brock, and the contributions that he made as head of the civil government and military, leading up to the War of 1812, as well as his legacy after his death at the Battle of Queenston Heights,” says Amanda Gamble, executive director of the Friends of Fort George.
The Friends of Fort George are also running a special donation drive in honour of Major General Sir Isaac Brock. They hope to raise $1,769 to honour Brock’s birthday (Oct. 6, 1769).
All funds raised will support employment and educational programs at Brock’s Monument for the 2022 season. Follow along and help reach their goal at: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/64588.
Cost for Brock’s Birthday Bash is $10 per person. Space is limited, so book your spot online at: https://friendsoffort
