BCRTA’s Heritage Committee is reminding branches that grants are available for projects that highlight education history in your local community.
A recent grant award went to the Elk Valley Retired Teachers’ Association for their project “Hands on the Past,” which gave school children and community members a vivid portrayal of the history of schools in the Fernie area. Read about this fascinating project on page 36 of the Winter 2022 issue of PostScript.
If your branch is interested in working on a heritage project, the BCRTA Heritage Grants can help with expenses related to the project. To learn about eligibility and to apply, check out these resources:
