Heritage Society president speaks up

Heritage Week kicks off February 19 with a full roster of activities and will provide a fine opportunity for Langley residents to get acquainted with their community’s history.

Local historical organizations play a key role in preserving and promoting a community’s natural and architectural environment, and the Langley Heritage Society has been doing so for nearly 30 years.

Apart from restoring more than 20 local buildings of historical importance in conjunction with its community partners, the society hosts monthly speakers on heritage topics, participates in Langley’s special annual events, and has prepared heritage walking tour maps for Fort Langley and Murrayville.

The society’s indefatigable president, Fred Pepin of Aldergrove, has extensive family roots in Langley. Pepin is an enthusiastic heritage booster and supporter of all things historical when it comes to Langley, having devoted countless volunteer hours over the years to our heritage projects.

He will be at the Murrayville Library on Thursday, Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m. to speak about the landmarks of historic Langley.

Since seating for this free program is limited, phone 604-533-0339 to reserve your seat. Murrayville Library is located at the corner of 212 Street and 48 Avenue.
