Each year since the Mount Pleasant Heritage Group’s inception we have had a Heritage Lounge (at the Autumn Shift Festival 2013-2015 and at the Vancouver Mural Festival 2016). We have created display boards on different topics including this one on Mount Pleasant’s historical themes. To access the City of Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant Community Plan document, on which this display board is based, click here.
At our May meeting we announced that we have received a Neighbourhood Small Grant to help us cover the costs of our 3rd Heritage Lounge and 2nd Treasured Buildings Signs Project. The Heritage Lounge will again take place at the Autumn Shift Festival sponsored by the MPBIA. The date is Sunday, September 13th and that’s when we will reveal this year’s recipients of our Treasured Buildings signs.
We are working on these projects over the summer. If you would like more information or to get involved please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you can follow us on twitter @mpheritagegroup.
A big thanks to our 2 photographers:
