Heritage Day & Photo Exhibit Open House – Goulbourn Township Historical Society

Event: Heritage Day & Photo Exhibit Open House – Goulbourn Township Historical Society
Date: Saturday, February 27, 2016
Time: 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Stittsville Public Library, Main Street, Stittsville

The Goulbourn Township Historical Society (GTHS) is hosting a Heritage Day event on Saturday, February 27 at the Stittsville Library. There will be people in period costumes and displays for viewing. Bring in any of your old photos of the people of Goulbourn, buildings or businesses that you think we would like copies of for our Archives and to be included in our display.

While you’re attending the GTHS event, you can visit our new archival photo exhibit now available to the public for viewing on the Artspace Wall at the Stittsville Library. Called “Pioneer Portraits”, it has some lovely portraits of our early local inhabitants. There is an information sheet with some background on each of the photos that you can have and follow as you view the exhibit. Everyone is invited to visit this exhibit – a tribute to those who came before us to settle Goulbourn Township.

Mark it on your calendar to participate in our Heritage Day celebration! There will be refreshments for everyone, the parking is free and the building is handicapped accessible.

Want to see new programming in Munster

The City of Ottawa is interested in bringing new programming opportunities to Munster, and specifically, into Munster Elementary School. There are options for daytime fitness classes, children’s programming and special interest classes. But, we need to know what people want before anything will happen.

 

If you are interested in seeing new programs in Munster, please fill out the attached survey and drop it off into the survey box at Macs. Your input counts and this is your chance to have a say.
