OUR LONDON HERITAGE
Last month Doors Open London (DO London) had its best year yet on September 18 and 19 with 50 sites and thousands of visitors! This was also the first year of our DO London Twitter photo contest! Thank you to everyone who sent in their amazing snaps from the weekend! You can see all the photos that were submitted on the London Heritage Council website www.londonheritage.ca. Also, keep an eye on our website for exciting events and news for DO London 2011, the 10-year anniversary of Doors Open in London!
If you want to get out and enjoy some fall sunshine and colours, head out to Fanshawe Pioneer Village for “Fall on the Farm,” and “Haunted Village Hayrides.” For even more excitement, experience the life and battles of a solider in 1812 at the Invasion of Upper Canada on October 2 and 3! For more information, go to www.fanshawepioneervillage.ca.
October marks a very important month this year for the City of London. The vision for the next four years of life in London will be decided on October 25 – the day of London’s municipal election.
Think your vote won’t make a difference? You’re wrong! This year you can come out and “Hack the Vote”! What is “Hack the Vote?” According to their website, “Hack the Vote is nonpartisan voter mobilization initiative driven from the grassroots by a diverse group of Londoners who are passionate about positive change for our community’s future. We think the way forward is ENGAGEMENT and what better way to kick that into gear but to get the vote out on October 25th?! If you are passionate about London as a leading city – vibrant, inclusive and prosperous – then choose leaders who represent this vision, YOUR VISION. “ For more information on upcoming events and parties, check out www.hackthevote.ca or @votehack on Twitter or Hack the Vote on Facebook.
Looking for another grass roots, positive, creative and innovative event? Look no further than Ignite London on October 12 at Aeolian Hall. Ignite is a high-energy evening of 5-minute talks by people who have an idea - and the guts to get on stage and share it. Run by local volunteers, Ignite London is a force for raising the collective IQ and building connections in our city. The London Heritage Council’s very own Jason Clarke will be using his five minutes to talk about film and video! Check out the whole line up at www.ignitelondon.ca.
The LHC is excited to use SNAP London, London's yearbook; published monthly, to get our message out.
