Our mission is to collect & protect Harveys’ heritage
The Harvey Regional Heritage & Historical Association, or more familiarly known as Harvey Heritage, was founded in 2010 to preserve the history and heritage of Harvey Station and surrounding area.
Our purpose is to bring together people interested in the history of Harvey, to promote historical study of the community and preservation of historical documents and artifacts. We actively collect, preserve and maintain historical photos, genealogies, oral histories, videos and any other unique and important historic records.
Harvey Heritage is a not-for-profit organized community “Volunteer” group, joined by membership, governed by a constitution and by-laws, and managed by an elected board of officers and directors. Our mandate is “to Collect and Protect” the heritage and history of the Harvey area.
In order to fulfill the mandate “To Collect and Protect”, it is necessary to maintain physical space for storing documents, photos and heritage items, buy and maintain equipment, and maintain other assets. All of this requires a certain amount of operating funds. To this end, we are funded primarily through our own fundraising efforts, membership drives, generous sponsorships of businesses in our community, and donations from interested citizens. To date, we have not received any Provincial or Federal funding.
We meet the 3rd Monday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Upper Village Mall in unit 7 (the octagon), and are always open to new members or any person or group interested in our heritage. Current officers are: Sheryl Bartlett (President), Bill Ross (V-President and Secretary), and Don Moore (Treasurer).
