Celebrating Canada's 150th
Little could outshine celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday! With such a
wonderful occasion on the horizon, what are your plans to mark the event?
However, whether you and your community will celebrate in the spring, summer
or fall, now is the time to plan.
Although in 1867, western
territories had not yet been named as provinces, they were very much part of
the British-Canadian landscape. So, acknowledging the founding of our nation
is important for all of us.
Of course, our First Nation’s history is
much earlier than Confederation. However by 1867, others were exploring,
trading or settling in the West, too. Now is the time to take this
opportunity to “see” Alberta & the other western territories and their
development over the past 150 years of building of our nation.
public & photo historian, Faye would love to share some of those experiences
with children, youth & adults of all ages in your community. Many of my
programs lend themselves to a celebration of our past, but also, I have
developed special programs to be available throughout 2017.
for such celebrations is available. You might already have allied to Canada
150 (http://canada.pch.gc.ca). Other
national or provincial programs for libraries, schools & community groups
offer support, too. Consider standard grants from Canada Council (http://canadacouncil.ca).
See The Writers’ Union of Canada National Reading Program (http://www.writersunion.ca/content/national-public-readings).
Other sources of assistance might be Alberta Culture grants, & Young Alberta
Book Society (http://www.yabs.ab.ca) programing. Most community have set
aside funds, too. Check early as new programs & new deadlines are coming
Anyone who has blogged knows that it is
hard to get other writing/work done if you are working on a blog every week.
However, despite whatever changes develop in the future, I am reactivating
my blog. If you enjoy rodeo and/or fair season, and if you want special
gifts for you volunteers or others who help make these great events happen,
