Vic West Sept 2020 Update

Vic West Community Association Anniversary Celebrations

2020 marks a couple of huge anniversaries for the VWCA, including 90 years since the association was originally founded, 50 years since we became a registered society, and 10 years since we officially took over the community centre! To celebrate these milestones we want to showcase important, people, places, and changes that have helped make Vic West the vibrant and diverse community it is today. Over the next few weeks stay tuned to our Facebook and Website for interviews with local residents, weekly history lessons (every Thursday), engaging speakers, prizes, giveaways, and much more! Vic West is steeped with local history and plays an important role in the development of Victoria as a whole. We’re so proud to be a part of this community and can’t wait to share what we’ve found with you!  Weekly Themes Sept 1st-5th: History of the Community Association Sept 6th-12th: History of the Songhees People and Vic West Sept 13th-19th: Vic West’s Industrial Past Sept 20th-26th: The Historical Importance of Rail in Vic West Sept 27th-Oct 3rd: Vic West’s Historic Houses Oct 4th-10th: Vic West’s Local Businesses through the ages Oct 11th-17th: History of Schools in Vic West Oct 18th-24th: Vic West’s Historic Churches Oct 25th-31st: Recreation in the Vic West Community   This project would not be possible without the help of… City of Victoria  The Victoria Heritage Society  City of Victoria Archives  BC Archives  E&N Division of the CHRA  Wise Victoria Mortgages  Victoria Harbour History
