The George Mackie Library is hosting a pair of presentations in February that delve into the history of North Delta.
Have you ever wondered how the places, schools and streets you are so familiar with got their names? Who were the people associated with these names?
Find out where people first lived in North Delta and where the first trails and roads were at Our North Delta: North Delta’s Historic Places and People.
That presentation is slated for Saturday, Feb. 2 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
On Saturday, Feb. 9, also from 2 to 3:30 p.m., hear about the community’s fishing history in Our North Delta: Annieville’s Fraser Fishing Fleet.
At the end of the 19th century, folks said there were so many salmon in the Fraser River that you could walk across on the backs of them. Fishermen arrived at Annieville, many from Norway. Canneries were built and employed people from many nations.
The two sessions are presentations by members of the North Delta advisory group for the Delta Heritage Society.
