DISCOVER HISTORIC CALGARY
- Hi Folks:
This isn't genealogy but it is part of family history and might be of
interest to some.
From the Federation of Calgary Communities.
The next heritage roundtable in the popular series looks at historic site
inventories recently piloted by community associations in Parkdale and
Cliff Bungalow-Mission. These communities were able to access grants and
expertise to help them identify, celebrate and better protect the heritage
and character of their neighbourhoods. They are now proceeding with plaque
programs and other projects. Representatives from the Municipal Heritage
Partnership Program, which helped to support this initiative, will be on
There will also be the much-anticipated premiere of the City of Calgary's
new heritage website (Discover Historic Calgary). This new resource has
information on hundreds of historic buildings all over Calgary and promises
to be of great value to heritage advocates, community volunteers, students
and teachers and the general public. Also hear about City's new heritage
evaluation system, the upcoming Lion Awards, Jane's Walk, updates on the
Calgary Brewery and other matters.
You won't want to miss the information, ideas and networking. These events
are always lots of fun. Refreshments provided.
January 28, doors at 6:30, event starts a 7 pm at the historic Memorial
Park library, 12th Avenue and 2nd Street SW.
