Eleven participants in Life Unlimited for Older Adults visited the Springdale Heritage Society Centre on July 24. They toured the building and watched a short video showing scenes of the early life and times of people in Springdale. This lead to an entertaining and informative discussion as participants reminisced on their experiences growing up in Springdale.
June Warr, a member of the Springdale Heritage Society, presented a history of the building and its early use as a courthouse as well as an explanation of the names assigned to each room at the Centre. She also described the taxidermy display and how the animals were acquired by the Society.
The visitors were given the opportunity to view poster boards showing the histories of some families who were among the early settlers of Springdale. Ms. Warr expressed the Society’s appreciation to everyone who had contributed to the Centre’s collection of history and memorabilia and invited those present to share information and old family photos for display at the Centre as well as to add to the individual family history binders being compiled by the Society. The visit ended with a snack.
