reprinted from Red Deer Advocate July17, 2013

Several Central Albertan heritage projects are among the 71 that received a portion of the $1.3 million in grant funding from the Alberta Historical Resource Foundation heritage grants.

The Canadian Northern (Meeting Creek) Historical Society received $24,940 to help with the conservation of the Canadian Northern Railway Station and Roundhouse in Big Valley.

"The pride Albertans take to preserve our colourful history is a result of the efforts of many individuals, organizations and municipalities," said Alberta Culture and Community Spirit Minister Heather Kimchuk. "By conserving our historic sites and landmark buildings, and documenting the province's journey through time, we preserve the legacy of those who came before us and help build the cultural capacity of communities across the province."

In Nordegg, the historical society received $43,575 for the conservation of the Nordegg/Brazeau Collieries Minesite.

The Stettler United Church received $34,820 for the conservation of the church.

The Delburne Futures Committee got $5,000 for historic walking trail signage.

Three Hills got $3,290 for the Anderson Park Information sign.

The Alberta Historical Resources Foundation assists Alberta Culture in promoting public awareness and enjoyment of Alberta's heritage and is Alberta's primary window for heritage preservation funding.
