Heritage heroes

Delta is paying tribute to several members of the community during Heritage Week (Feb. 21-27).

The Delta Heritage Advisory Commission is handing out the Heritage Award of Merit and the Friends of Heritage Awards.

Terrance Bremner will receive the Heritage Award of Merit for the restoration of the Seymour Huff residence and barn.

A bronze plaque will be presented by Mayor Lois Jackson Feb. 21 at 11 a.m. at the Seymour Huff residence (Wellbrook Winery), 4626 88 St.

Friends of Heritage Awards are being presented to:

• Wayne Oliver, founder of the Village Chronicler;

• Kathy Bossort, former archivist of the Delta Museum and Archives Society; and

• Robert Butler and Gordon Ellis for their leadership in organizing the 2010 Westham 100 celebration.

The Heritage Award of Merit and the Friends of Heritage Award certificates will be presented by Jackson at a ceremony during the regular council meeting Feb. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Kennedy Seniors Recreation Centre, 11760 88 Ave.

“Heritage is such an integral part of Delta and it is truly great to see members of our community striving to preserve and promote our heritage,” said Jackson.
