Upcoming MPHG Meeting Monday, February 2nd, 2015

Please join us tonight at 7 pm for our next regular meeting, which will take place at grunt gallery – 350 East 2nd Avenue/Unit 116

The agenda is open and will include:

*New information gathered on our Treasured Buildings since the profiles were posted on the website.  We will discuss how to do more in-depth investigations.  One of the group’s questions – who  was Mrs. Jessie Pierce?  She is listed in 1910 as the Owner/Architect on the building permits of not only 2350 Prince Albert Street, one of our sign recipients, but also of the three houses beside it.   She appears to be one of Vancouver’s early developers.

*Heritage Week in BC occurs from February 16th – 22nd.  This year’s theme is “Celebrating Main Street:  At the Heart of the Community”.  How can the Main Street Business in Mount Pleasant join in on this Heritage Celebration?

*Project List:

-MP Treasured Buildings – getting this year’s process underway.

-Heritage Lounge – women of Mount Pleasant’s past as a feature board.

-Short Video profiling Mr. Bob Butler, an employee of the Mount Pleasant Optometry Centre who has been there since it opened in 1950.

*Update on our website development.

*Update on the Mount Pleasant Community Heritage Project (144 East 6th Avenue).
