July 2015 - Lougheed House

2015 AGM and Daring Deco Opening

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

It has been a great start to the summer! We announced our 2015 – 2017 Strategic Plan, as well as celebrated the opening of current exhibit, “Daring Deco: 1920s Women’s Fashion”, at the 2015 AGM in June. The Lougheed House Conservation Society honored the 20 years since its formation and the dedication of its volunteers, board members, staff, and the community.
