Sharing Our Stories

Sometimes we encounter intriguing stories in unexpected places. At SSUC we have a few to share. A woman from a prominent Kingston and Queen’s University family gets thrown into a police paddy-wagon in Toronto in 1912. Do you know her story? How about the monumental work of Kingston’s first mayor? Kingston’s first affirming congregation? Follow the links to encounter some people and events from our distant and recent past – you might be surprised to find Chinese New Year celebrations in the Upper Hall, or people jostling for tickets to meet Queen Elizabeth at church.
