The Heritage community is one of the original neighbourhoods, just Northeast of downtown, that for years was described as ‘Core’. There’s a ton of interesting places and history there and the folks at Heritage CA have been working hard over the past year to promote their neighbourhood.
Friend of Lakeview and LCA outdoor sign guru Marci Brisbourne is also heavily involved with the Heritage Community Association and passed along information about an exciting Trek to Tomorrow event on May 1.
This promises to be an awesome event which complements Jane’s Walk Regina, which is going on the same day. Take a Jane’s Walk, then head over to Heritage!
More from Kierin Gorlitz, who is coordinating the event:
The Trek will bring teams into the Heritage neighbourhood in search of sites and locations significant to the community, working against the clock to collect points and win prizes. The event will be followed immediately by a banquet dinner at the Regina Inn, where prizes will be presented and Trek participants will be treated to a performance by FadaDance and an appearance by guest speaker Larry Schneider, former mayor of the City of Regina.
While this event is a fundraiser for Heritage Community services, it is also intended to heighten the knowledge and awareness of city residents about the community, its rich heritage, and the people and businesses that comprise it.
The Trek to Tomorrow will be a fun, family-friendly event, and costumes are encouraged! Come out as a bawdy gang of pirates in search of loot, or a company of
circus performers—or dress in yellow in the theme of our symbol, the Yellow Rose.
Your participation in the Trek to Tomorrow will help bring support and attention to the Heritage Community. Come out and make a difference!
