It is amazing how quickly the months roll around, and here we are just a week away from the next GHG Public Meeting. As usual we will meet at the Britannia Board Room on Napier Street at 7:00pm on Thursday 18th April. We have quite a few things to talk about.
I am sure the highlight of the evening will be the third in Eric Phillip’s excellent series on Historic House Mechanicals and Materials. This one will be about balloon construction and why it was different from both platform and timber frame construction.
There are a number of events coming up that we need to discuss: 2013 Heritage Awards (end of May); Heritage Vancouver House Tour (2nd June), which we might have some part of; and CarFree Day on the Drive (16 June), in which we have participated before.
We also have a couple of projects that are ongoing: the launch of the 2013 Centenary House Signs campaign needs to be arranged; and we have news to share on the Shelly’s 4X Sign renewal project.
Hopefully we will also have time to discuss a summer program of walks and talks, and to discuss the upcoming 75th anniversary (July 1st) of the First Avenue Viaduct. And, of course, anything else that folks want to raise
It should be a fun and interesting evening, so do please join us in this continuing conversation designed to enhance and protect the heritage of Grandview.
