Join Us For Our 7th Heritage Lounge This Sunday, June 16th, 2019 At The Main Street Car Free Festival From 12 – 7

The Mount Pleasant Heritage Group is excited to again be participating in the Main Street Car Free Festival and our Heritage Lounge will be located in front of Heritage Hall.

Along with displays and maps about Mount Pleasant’s history, neighbourhood walking tour pamphlets, and a colouring station with pages created by local artists, we will have information about how the Mount Pleasant Heritage Group is advocating for Mount Pleasant’s ‘Living Heritage’.

Mount Pleasant’s heritage lives not only through its buildings but also through its village atmosphere, street vitality, distinct commercial identity with a diverse and vibrant mix of local businesses, and a long and rich tradition of being an arts and performance hub.

Following up on a letter we wrote to Mayor and Council, seven City Councillors met with us to discuss how much Mount Pleasant’s heritage, in both its tangible and intangible forms, contributes to the liveability of the City and is treasured by residents.

Come by and find out about the next steps the Mount Pleasant Heritage Group will be taking in our proposal for a heritage precinct in the ‘Heritage Heart’ area and how you can help. Mount Pleasant Heritage Lives!

Celebrating Heritage Week 2019

Join us in recognizing and appreciating Mount Pleasant’s “Living Heritage” in celebration of Heritage Week 2019 in Canada and the theme Heritage: The Tie That Binds”. 

Heritage exists in both tangible (physical) and intangible (non-physical) forms. Tangible heritage, such as objects and buildings, are easy to see. Intangible heritage, such as beliefs, traditions and uses of space, are qualities that contribute to the cultural landscape of a neighbourhood and are no less important. It is the combination of both tangible and intangible heritage that are at the heart of Mount Pleasant’s distinct village character, commercial identity, affordability and diversity. To discover more visit the Mount Pleasant Community Centre and check out our exhibit in the display case of the main lobby. It is up until March 15, 2019.

This heritage week project brought to you by Jennifer Chernecki, Christine Hagemoen, Alyssa Myshok and Danielle Peacock.
