RHSC @ Sick Kids

On Thursday afternoon, Oct 8, David M. Cvet, President of the Royal Heraldry Society of Canada and AEMMA, assisted by Alex Wagner also of AEMMA delivered a presentation to a group of excited children and patients at the Hospital for Sick Children. The presentation included a combination of a brief on the origins and background on heraldry, a drawing contest of their own coats of arms on copies of blank shields (the winner given a copy of the Primer), and how a man shall be armed in the 14th century, called the "Tin Man" presentation within the hospital. Thanks goes out to Susie Petro, Child Life Specialist of the Hospital. This is the fourth such gig for David, and undoubtedly, more will be scheduled in the new year.

Several years ago, I was webmaster for the then-HSC (Heraldry Society of Canada). I would occasionally be emailed resumes from doctors in foreign countries, who wanted to work at the Hospital for Sick Children. Apparently, someone had decided that there was only one HSC in Canada.
