In light of our new associate membership agreement with the Greater Niagara and Hamilton chambers of commerce, we took our fall CanAm Council meeting north of the border to the Shaw Festival Theatre. More than 50 members representing all three organizations gathered in Niagara-on-the-Lake for a group discussion on the Council’s advocacy priorities for 2018, as well as conversation on recent news and current events impacting our bi-national region.
At the end of the meeting, Tim Jennings, Executive Director of the Shaw Festival, addressed the group with a brief history of the theatre dating back to its founding in the 1960s by Calvin Rand, a Buffalo businessman, and Brian Doherty, a Canadian playwright. A true repertory theatre operating in our own backyard, The Shaw Festival Theatre is a prime example of the cultural treasures of the Buffalo Niagara region.
