Community Heritage Day
Alder Grove Heritage Society Community Museum & Archives
Aldergrove Community Heritage Day is a chance for residents to come to the museum, learn about the area's history and see many items that aren't usually on display. This year we have a special unveiling - we received a donation of 29 microfilms which contain every issue of the Aldergrove Star newspaper from 1957 to 1991, along with a microfilm reader on which to view them. We will have activities for all ages as well as a look ahead at what's coming up at the museum, the projects we are working on, and some new special interest groups that we are introducing. We will be following all current Public Health Orders for our region. The activities will be both indoor and out, with the outdoor areas under cover.
This event is free.
Alder Grove Heritage Society
Alder Grove Heritage Society is a volunteer organization and a registered Canadian charity that was incorporated in 1989. It depends on membership dues, book sales, grants and donations for funding. The society operates the Aldergrove Community Museum and Archives, formerly known as the Telephone Museum. The museum has a substantial collection of local history objects, photographs, stories and documents, as well as a large collection of telephones and a research library. The society's current mission is to work through the collection, updating all of the exhibits and documentation that was neglected over the years by a former society president. The society is very active on social media and in the future will be holding in-person workshops about activities pertaining to area history. The society is a signing participant in the BCMA Repatriation Call To Action initiative.
