Heritage Committee Approves Grants

Heritage Committee Report

Barb Mikulec, chair

At our October meeting the committee members established Objectives for the coming year. Then we read the submitted forms and agreed to grants for some exciting Heritage projects with the Retired Teachers Association in BC.

  • Cariboo Chilcotin RTA will be working on an Historical Research Project at their historic 150 Mile ‘Little Red School House’.
  • Kootenay Columbia RTA will be preserving the school registers of one of their elementary schools, and involving the retired teachers in the recording of data.
  • Kimberley RTA will upgrade their Marysville School House heritage building which is used for demonstration classes for students throughout the district, in a 100 year old building. How wonderful to support efforts to preserve Heritage for our present and future students.

Each of these projects use retired teachers involvement and create a lasting influence for their communities.
