CELEBRATING 200 YEARS
The Township of Beckwith
We invite you to share stories, information and ideas as we prepare to celebrate our upcoming 200th anniversary in 2016.
Individuals who have such contributions are welcomed to share this information for all to enjoy!
The Township of Beckwith is looking for interested parties to contribute their stories, large and small, as well as family recollection & special memories as part of our celebration for our upcoming 200th anniversary. We are hoping to have this event told by the people who know the area best - the residents of Beckwith Township.
The 200th Anniversary aims to celebrate the people, places and events that make Beckwith Township such a wonderful place to "Live, Work and Play!" Any information and tales about family life, farming, school days, community events, churches, local business and any other special memories would be a great addition in celebrating our heritage.
Any stories or information provided should attempt to be less than 1500 words in order to include as many stories as possible to reach a wide audience of locals, newcomers, visitors and former residents. All authors whose work is selected for publication will be credited unless they prefer to not have their name(s) published. We also hope to collect photos & oral histories to stand on their own or to accompany such stories and write ups.
The purpose of this celebration and compilation of information is in hopes of recording histories to preserve for future generations and to celebrate the heritage of the Township and the lives of those who have passed.
Deadline for submissions is December 31st, 2014.
For more information on how to get involved, please contact the Townshp of Beckwith at email@example.com or by phone at 613-257-1539.
