HISTORIC CALGARY - JULY 28 - AUGUST 6
- Hi Folks:
In case you are not yet aware I am pleased to bring you some good news.
Once again our AFHS is privileged to collaborate with the Chinook Country Historical Society in bringing HISTORIC CALGARY WEEK to the community. And, as usual, it is going to be a 'bell ringer'.
Take a minute to look at the very complete and exciting website http://www.albertahistory.org/Chinook/
You can't help but be impressed with the grand array of tours and presentations planned for all to enjoy.
On Wednesday evening August 2nd at the Memorial Library, AFHS is delighted to have been able to engaged the oldest living grandson of William Roland Reader, Calgary's first Parks Superintendent, to speak of his life in the beautiful home at the restored Reader Rock Garden. Bill Peacock, a retired Professional Engineer is traveling from Penticton BC especially for this presentation. Bill lived with his grandparents in the newly-restored home for 3 years as a child.
