Pouch Cove Community Heritage Night, Tues October 5, 2010

7 PM
Anglican Church Hall in Pouch Cove

This Tuesday, come join the Pouch Cove Heritage Committee and help figure out which stories, songs, photos and places could be saved as part of preserving and sharing Pouch Cove’s heritage.

I will be on hand to explain the importance of preserving history and heritage, and to help identify people, places, stories and things that are important for the community to save as part of its local heritage and culture.

People are invited to bring family photos they would like to share. These will be scanned at the event, so you won’t have to give them up! Former ICH Digital Archives Intern Jed Baker will be on hand to help create a Google map of the community, marking places with important stories and photos.

The Pouch Cove Heritage Committee is a non-profit community association founded last year to help residents of Pouch Cove identify and protect local heritage. The Committee works independently from the Pouch Cove Town Council and has been set up as a separate incorporated society.

Bob Brink, a member of the executive, has designed and set up a new website for the group, at Check it out!
