The all-day, free Heritage BC workshop is being held at the Executive Suites Hotel and Resort with food and beverages provided by Norman Rudy’s.

The goal is to discuss the District of Squamish’s responsibility for preserving heritage, identify short and long-term goals for the Squamish Historical Society — and local heritage stakeholders — and create a plan for moving forward.

 “The District of Squamish is currently facing enormous change,” said society president Bianca Peters, in a news release. “It’s an exciting time to be living in Squamish, however, opportunities to document, showcase and preserve our local heritage are being lost on a weekly basis as a direct result of a lack of a District heritage policy in our community."

One of the ideas Peters has floated is to incorporate history into the Squamish waterfront, as Nanaimo has.

The Squamish Historical Society is paying for the workshop.

The Nov. 2 event runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you wish to attend, RSVP info@squamishhistory.ca.
