For some while now, the Grandview Heritage Group has discussed the idea of placing celebratory signs on local houses and buildings that are 100 years old in a particular year. 1912 was an excellent year for buildings here and so we were keen to make sure the program kicked off this year. Therefore, we applied to the East Vancouver 2012 Neighbourhood Small Grants Project, funded by the Vancouver Foundation.
We want to thank the Foundation and everyone involved in the adjudication of these awards for approving our grant, and we look forward to writing more about this exciting project over the next few weeks.
If you live in, or know of, a house or building in Grandview that was built in 1912 and you would like to see it adorned with a Happy Birthday sign, please contact us as soon as possible.
