The Cammidge House Committee will be celebrating Heritage Day on Sunday.
The theme this year is power, i.e. electricity and gas, says event co-chairman Geof Hacker.
He's putting together a display of the history of the development of power in South Delta and its future in B.C. It will include some historical photos like one of Ladner's first gas station, Hacker notes.
Volunteers, wearing 1914 costumes, will be serving tea, coffee and baked goods by donation.
There will be vintage cars and tractors on site and the Earthwise Society will also have a display.
Heritage Day is set for Sunday, Feb. 26 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Cammidge House, located in the Boundary Bay Regional Park in Tsawwassen.
While the Heritage Canada Foundation promotes the third Monday in February each year as Heritage Day, Heritage B.C. recognizes Feb. 20 to 26 as Heritage Week in the province.
"Canada is the world's second-largest producer of hydroelectricity, and our per-capita power consumption is among the highest in the world. The 2012 Heritage Day theme celebrates the past, but also looks forward as the world's attention turns to energy-use reduction and new sources of green energy," the foundation's website states.
