Celebrate our local stories and history!

Wednesday, February 21

Celebrate the local, cultural and lesser known history of our city with a free evening of storytelling, community and refreshments. Local comedian Morgan Brayton will serve as MC introducing several speakers connected to memorable sites honoured through the Places That Matter program. There will be opportunities to share your own stories, or just listen in, as well as explore community booths, the plaque project and the Community History Resource.
