Since its founding just a few years ago, Heritage Chilliwack Society has played a leading role in heritage information, engagement and promotion in our community. The forming of our society was in response for the need of a voice for heritage in Chilliwack, the third oldest municipality in B.C and currently without a city council appointed Heritage Advisory Committee.
We have been able to continue the mission of our volunteer based, non-profit organization due to the support and efforts of the board of directors, volunteers, members and the community at large.
As Heritage Chilliwack expands our programs and advocacy efforts, we must also expand our membership involvement. Please do not hesitate to contact us with your ideas and offers of help with our activities and events.
With the recent change of mayor and council, it is also important that we continue to put forward the message that Chilliwack’s heritage is important to the culture of our community, that it is an important building block in creating livable and attractive neighbourhoods, and that heritage also has economic benefits.
We are excited for the continued growth of Heritage Chilliwack Society and we look forward to seeing each of our members at future events.
New to Chilliwack? Please join us. We meet at 7 pm on the first Thursday of the month at the Royal Hotel.
