At our last meeting, we firmed up our plans for a series of walks and talks on the history and heritage of Grandview during the fall and winter season. Here are some brief details for you to fill out your calendar:
Saturday, September 15th at 2pm: Bruce Macdonald will conduct a walking tour of the area around Grant & Commercial, discussing the importance of that area to the development of Grandview.
Sunday, October 21st at 10am: Maurice Guibord will take you on a walking tour around the streets between Clark Drive and Commercial Drive — an often overlooked part of our neighbourhood.
Wednesday, November 21st at 7pm: Jak King will give an illustrated talk on the history of Commercial Drive to 1950. This will probably be at The Learning Centre at Britannia Library.
No registration will be required for these events and attendance will be by donation..
In addition, in January, Penny Street will be giving a workshop on building a history of your house, and there will be further walks and talks in the spring of 2013.
As we get closer to each event, we will post more details here and through our email list which you can subscribe to by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
