Please come out for the presentation on Friday the 9th at 7:30 of a ‘Places That Matter’ plaque for the WISE Hall at Adanac and Victoria.
The hall was chosen as one of the 125 Places That Matter for the city’s 125th-birthday by a committee organized by the Vancouver Heritage Foundation. It’s unusual due to its evolution from a church hall (for the old Methodist/United church that’s now The Cultch) into a social space for groups of United Kingdom immigrants (the Welsh Irish Scottish English – the WISE), and now into a neighbourhood alternative performance space. Here’s the web page with invitation.
The plaque presentation is open to everyone and is free (I, Michael Kluckner, will be speaking briefly at it). It will be followed by a fundraising concert (doors open at 8) and participants in the plaque presentation will get a $5 discount on the concert admission.
