Celebrating History.
Inspiring Tomorrow.

Historic Trust Community,

First, I hope this message finds you and your family well and remaining safe. Secondly, I want to assure you that we at The Historic Trust, while working remotely, are monitoring developments with COVID-19 and updating our plans accordingly.

With schools closed and more than 7,000 youth and families looking to Pearson Field Education Center as a resource to deliver community education programs, staff are devoted to creating and implementing new, live streamed, inclusive educational programs.

In addition to creating new creative content online, we are exploring future opportunities for new innovative and exciting events and programs that will take place throughout Trust property locations once this challenging time is behind us.

We realize this is a stressful time for everyone. Exercise is considered a safe method to relieve stress and it is encouraged when we adhere to six-foot distance guidelines. I invite you to take a peaceful walk through the Vancouver National Historic Reserve. Spring is in the air and each time you walk along Officers Row we hope you experience a sense of civic pride in knowing your generosity is making it possible.

The board of directors, staff, volunteers and I join together to wish you peace and health during this unprecedented time. We are confident that as we work together, we will emerge stronger. Thank you for your support. It’s your partnership that allows the Trust to move creatively and boldly into the future.
