Meetings are held at our new location, the Fergus Legion, on the 4th Wednesday of each month (no meetings in July, August and December). Social time starts at 7:00 p.m. with the presentation portion of the meeting beginning at 7:30.
For information on how to join the Society, see the document below titled "How to Join FDHS".
At each monthly members' meeting, interesting topics will be presented/discussed. The end of each meeting is an opportunity to chat with the speaker(s) and each other while enjoying refreshments provided by our members.
Our Society makes an exceptional contribution to civic beautification through the maintenance of many gardens around Fergus. In their purple Society t-shirts, volunteers known as the “Diggin’ in the Dirt” group gather from spring to fall every Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. at Templin Gardens and then fan out across town.
