“ELGIN COUNTY CULTURAL MAPPING PROJECT TO BE COMPLETED BY MARCH 31st”
Elgin County’s Cultural Mapping project is underway – a board for public input has been set up in the Aylmer Library – with the deadline date being March 31.
According to the overview: “Broadly speaking, cultural mapping is a process of collecting, recording, analyzing and synthesizing information in order to describe the cultural fabric of a given community or group that, once analyzed, affirms the “uniqueness” of place. Within the context of the County, this includes both tangible assets (such as museums, historic sites, parks, trails and ecological sites) and intangible assets (such as ethnic communities, local heroes, folklore, celebrations and events). The information gained from this project will ultimately benefit the County’s marketing, tourism development and planning efforts.”
“A READER WRITES:”
“I notice the meeting of CIB is on your agenda this week. About 10 years ago, Judi Wright along with Marg Sinclair, were here in Kaslo, B.C. for a visit. and Judy remarked that our village would be a perfect fit for Communities in Bloom. Well it has taken time, but there is now,a Kaslo committee, that is now planning their second year with CIB. Slowly we are progressing, and can look to the Aylmer model as a guide. Sharing a good idea, often has amazing results. Thanks. Mary Stickel.
