Congratulations to all students participating in the 2014 Kamloops Provincial Heritage Fair this week! Our Richmond-Delta ambassadors - Yonatan, Veronica, Vedanshi, Dania, Jasneet, Justin, alumni Jolie and chaperone Faye - are having blast at the BC Provincial Heritage Fair in Kamloops. Each of the 6 alumni representatives from around the province have been blogging about their experiences - follow their adventures here!

This 4 day event, running from June 29 to July 2, is an opportunity for students to not only showcase their knowledge about Canada's history but also make memories and new connections. So far students have discovered Shuswap Culture at the Hat Creek Historic Ranch, the Ashcroft Museum, and Logan Lake. They also participated in the Canada Day celebrations at Riverside Park, which included a front row seat at the opening ceremonies, talking to the public about their topics in the project pavilion, and of course, fireworks! Look for upcoming blog posts from the alumni and the Provincial Fair Coordinator about today's exploration of local heritage sites and the closing ceremonies of the 7th annual Provincial Heritage Fair.
