Fallbrook Farm Heritage Site
Update 50


NORTH HALTON CELTIC HISTORICAL SOCIETY

Up-date Oct. 2010

The Municipal elections in Halton Hills have had a favourable outcome for NHCHS, as those most connected with the Fallbrook project (J. Fogal, D. Kentner and J. Robson) all retain their seats on council, and Ann Lawlor a long term supporter and principal in the Deveraux House project is newly elected to Council.

Regarding our own activities, the month has been one of establishing and maintaining our network of potential and existing partners:

On Oct. 14 Anne attended one of the first meetings of the Halton Heritage Network, a coalition of Historical Organizations formed to share information and expertise among groups like ours throughout Halton. She will be presenting background information on our group at the Network meeting of Dec. 1.

Oct. 15, as part of a visit to the Celtic Colours concert series in Cape Breton, I visited the Highland Village Museum in Iona, Cape Breton. This site is full of ideas on the exposition of Celtic culture, but it should be recognized that it has been 50 years in the making.

Oct. 26 Anne, Lloyd and myself met with Mr. Rollo Myers of the Architectural Conservacy of Ontario and were assured of their on-going support. We also learned of an option to gain charitable status through ACO as opposed to gaining this status on our own.

On Dec.4, Kate will introduce NHCHS to the Heritage Foundation of Halton Hills.

Notwithstanding the seeming impasse with CVC and Halton Hills, our next agenda items are the gaining of charitable status, investigating the role Fallbrook might play regarding the Town Cycling Plan and the Bruce Trail, and refining, articulating and illustrating our vision as an educational facility. The latter may well require expertise and consultation outside our organization, possibly in the form of a group dedicated to this challenge.

Regards

Bill McKay for NHCHS
