HERITAGE CAN BE FUN

As a member of the city of Selkirk Heritage committee I just want to share the following letter from 2 of the hardest working and dedicated heritage helpers I have met; 

they are putting their time and  love of history on the line to keep our heritage fun and informative 

if u need some fancy clothes. Don't look at me my oldest item is a 70's jeans vest my wife probably found a way to throw out when I went fishing

Hello! 
Have you ever wanted to go to a Garden Party a la Downton Abbey? Well, here's your chance!! This is your invitation! 
 
 
To draw attention to the need to preserve heritage buildings,  I am planning on Sunday, July 5 to do a re-enactment of a 1915 Garden Party - held on the lawn of the Stuart House at 478 Eveline Street in Selkirk from ( 2-4:00). 
 
 
 
People who are costumed ( like Downton Abbey) get in free and so does everyone else - but you will get better service!! Imagine tea and crumpets /playing croquet on the lawn, music and speeches by famous dead guys! 
 
 
If anyone is interested in playing a role - or actually impersonating a historic figure - please contact me. No money ... only fame ( and more crumpets..whatever they are) as a reward! 
 
 
And while we're in the mood for nostalgia...
 
 
 
Our next walking tour of downtown Selkirk is on June 25, but it has an adult theme: Saints and Sinners. Tickets at the Gaynor Family Regional library. Refreshments at Benjamin's Gourmet Foods, afterwards (included in the $15 price). 
 
 
This walking Tour ticket is an Ideal (ie cheap) Father's Day gift ( it beats a tie and gets dad out of the house for a couple of hours of healthy exercise).
 
 
 
Other tours are every second Thursday evening through July 2, 16,30 and August 13 and 27 !
 
 
Hope to see you soon at one of these historically biased events sponsored by the Red River North Regional Heritage Group! 
 
 
All the best to you, 
- Rob
