Memorial Dinner Tickets, June 16 2022*
The Sir Winston Churchill Memorial Dinner has resumed and will take place June 16th at the Ranchmen’s Club, 710-13th Avenue SW, Calgary. Our keynote speaker will be Waller Newell, Professor of Political Science at Carleton University in Ottawa, and author of the 2016 book, Tyrants: A History of Power, Injustice and Terror. He also has a new book just released entitled Tyranny and Revolution: Rousseau to Heidegger. Dr. Newell's keynote address is entitled "‘Tyranny and Revolution: Lessons from History."
One reviewer described Prof. Newell’s previous book, Tyrants, this way: “In Tyrants: A History of Power, Injustice and Terror, Newell takes the reader on a three-millennium ride through history’s Caesars, emperors, Kaisers, dictators, tyrants, and terrorists. The author’s goal is to analyze various types of despotism so we can properly understand the modern terrorists and tyrants we face, and deal with them effectively in order to preserve our freedom.”
Given world events including the Russian war on Ukraine, this will be a dinner you won’t want to miss. The reception begins at 6:00 p.m. and dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. Please register for this dinner by clicking on the "Member" or "Non-Member" button below. Member and Non-Member tickets ($225.00 and $275.00 respectively) can be purchased until midnight Monday June 6th.
You are also invited to sponsors student "seats" at the dinner for $275.00 each. Each year, the Sir Winston Churchill Society of Calgary invites student winners of debates, moot court, and arts scholarships to attend our Churchill Memorial Dinner.
