The Birth of Our Community

October 29, 2012

At 3pm on Saturday 8th December, the Grandview Heritage Group (GHG) will sponsor an illustrated talk by me on “The Birth of Our Community: Grandview 1890-1915.” It was this quarter-century that turned Commercial Drive and Grandview from a raw forest into one of Vancouver’s primary residential and shopping centres.

The talk will take place at the CFEC Room upstairs at Family Place at the south end of Britannia Community Centre facing Grandview Park (1655 William Street.)

Seats are limited and GHG would welcome a note in advance to to let them know you will be coming.  We will be asking for a $10 donation to assist the work of the GHG.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Happy Birthday To Me!
