The annual fall Oak Bay Heritage lecture series kicked off with an extra special celebration as the first lecture this year also marked the 50th talk since the program began in 2000.
A packed room at the Windsor Pavillion took in a presentation by Peter Grant, an author and historian recently recognized with a Communications Award by the Hallmark Heritage Society for his website Oak Bay Chronicles.
Grant’s talk, “From the 50s to the 50s” explores the diversity and character in a South Oak Bay neighbourhood from 1850 to 1950.
A custom cake was made for the event which was cut by Marion Cumming of Oak Bay Heritage Foundation, Mayor Nils Jensen, and Trisha Glatthaar who was the speaker at the very first heritage talk in 2000. Door prizes were provided by Telus PureFibre and flowers from Jennings Florists.
