February 17-23, 2020
I, Mayor Sandy Brown, do hereby proclaim February 17-23, 2020 as “Heritage Week” in the Town of Orangeville.
Whereas, Heritage Week provides a unique opportunity for the people of Canada to celebrate our collective history, heritage and diverse traditions; and
Whereas, Heritage Orangeville has chosen the 2020 theme “2020 Vision: Bringing the Past Into the Future” in celebration of our past and our future; and
Whereas, during Heritage Week 2020, communities across Canada are encouraged to participate in the celebrations, and to reflect on the rich history of our great country.
Now Therefore, members of Council and Heritage Orangeville urge all residents and business owners to reflect on what the Town's heritage means to them by honouring the contribution of the individuals who shaped our community over the years.
In celebration of our past and our future, Heritage Week “2020 Vision: Bringing the Past Into the Future” is an opportunity to inspire all Canadians to embrace, explore and enjoy our enduring heritage.
