This year the theme for Heritage Week in BC (February 15 – 21) is Distinctive Destinations: Experience Historic Places.
The Friends of Fintry were honoured to receive an award for the ” Preservation or Restoration of a Neighbourhood or Area. Awarded to a neighbourhood or area that has largely remained unchanged over time or has been revitalized through the restoration and/or rehabilitation of its buildings and streetscape.”
The award was accepted by the Historian for Friends of Fintry, Paul Korascil. In his acceptance speech he thanked the Friends of Fintry past presidents & board members for making this possible. It was wonderful to have a few of these past members there for the presentation. The present board of directors has these dedicated people to thank for preserving the history of Fintry for generations to come.
We are thankful for the recognition and the generous donation which will be put towards bringing the fascinating history of Fintry alive.
