Chilliwack –Are you interested in learning more about Chilliwack’s history and heritage? Maybe you would like to learn about the City of Chilliwack’s Heritage Action Plan.
Heritage Chilliwack Society is hosting their Annual General Meeting on Thursday, November 7 @7 pm (with registration starting at 6:30) at the Royal Hotel. New members are welcome.
Karen Stanton from the City of Chilliwack & councilor Sue Knott will be guest speakers and will talk about the newly formed Heritage Advisory Committee, the Heritage Action Plan, the community engagement process and what the mandate of the committee is.
A wine and cheese social will take place following the meeting.
Chilliwack’s heritage resources reflect our city’s history and help to tell the story of our past. Our heritage homes and buildings are among the most tangible remnants of early settlement and development. Many of these character-filled homes are of solid construction, contain unique architectural details and contribute significantly to the urban flavour and the essence of our city.
“I am excited to see the positive changes that our local government is making to manage Chilliwack’s heritage assets. By acknowledging and understanding our past we can make appropriate decisions and find creative solutions while moving into the future,” notes Laura Reid, president of Heritage Chilliwack Society.
Heritage Chilliwack Society is a volunteer run, community based initiative established to engage, advocate for and promote Chilliwack’s heritage.
