In Heritage Update Number 070 for March-April 2017: we introduce some changes to our Designation and Grant Programs; share memories from the former Red Cliff Base; announce the grant deadline for the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Program 2017; meet the Coopers, the lighthouse family of Random Head in a special article from the Clarenville Heritage Society; and ask you to save the date for the "Adapting our Heritage Conference" in St. John’s, October 25 – 28, 2017. We also take a trip to look at the archival material of Portugal Cove-St. Philip’s, seek your help with our survey of historical churches, and announce the Greenspond Courthouse Call for Expressions of Interest!
