Hi Everyone,

Something exciting to do in our neighbourhood next week from the Vancouver Heritage Foundation:

Early Immigrant History Walking Tours (Free)
Citizenship Week - October 14 – 17th, 2014
Guides: John Atkin and Maurice Guibord.

October 13th through 19th Vancouver Heritage Foundation is celebrating Citizenship Week with free walking tours that explore the diverse cultural history of Strathcona. Join John Atkin or Maurice Guibord to learn about the schools, churches, grocery stores and street corners that came alive with the voices of generations of immigrant families. The October 16th walk will be given in French by Maurice Guibord, and all tours end at the Union Food Market which has been a traditional Portuguese grocery and bakery since 1962.
The walks are free and open to everyone, but registration is required as space is limited.
