Nanaimo Historical Society's 2023 Annual General meeting will recap their activities in 2022, and reveal plans for the coming year.

Following the AGM, society member Dalys Barney will showcase her research into soda-bottle production in Nanaimo and Vancouver Island areas. She has recently self-published the booklet Message on a Bottle: Nanaimo’s Soda History, which focuses on single-serving glass soda bottles produced by Nanaimo manufacturers. Starting as early as the 1870s, Nanaimo had entrepreneurs who were bottling and selling soda in the city. There are many images of the bottles, some of which feature iconic Nanaimo images like a crossed miner’s pick and shovel or the Bastion. The booklet will be for sale at the meeting.

Guests are welcome to attend, however, only paid up members are able to vote at the AGM.
