    The Show Must Go On

    John McDonald will provide us with a history of Entertainment, Art, and Culture in Milton.

    John was born in Milton, Ontario and is a lifelong resident of Halton. He graduated from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute and served as a Member of Council on both Halton Hills and the Region of Halton for a 10 year period commencing in 1978.

    John has conducted extensive research throughout the Halton area since the early 1970’s. This work has resulted in the publication of three books and numerous presentations to churches, schools, service clubs, historical societies and historical walking tours. Halton Sketches was published in 1976 and Halton Sketches Revisited, which was first published in 1996, is currently in its third printing.

    After extensive research in England, Bermuda and Ontario a new book, Halton’s Heritage, introduced in October 2011, features the story of William Halton—the man our county (and region) was named for. This new book, which deals with the origin of place names, includes both written and pictorial essays for over 70 settlements in Halton.

    John is a founding member of the Esquesing Historical Society and was awarded the Ontario Heritage Community Recognition Program “Certificate of Achievement” in 2003 and ten years later he was recognized for his community efforts and historical research when presented with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal.
