The event will be held at City Hall, 303 E. B St., Conference Room 5.
Ontario Heritage is looking to become more of a presence in the community starting in 2013. They plan to host events that showcase the historic highlights of our community. To do this we are looking to have a more active membership and possibly fill a couple of vacancies on the board.
The 2013 Historic Home Tour is in the initial planning stages and set for this Spring. But Heritage members say they will need an “army of volunteers” for this event.
