The BCLG has been affiliated with the OHS since 2004. The Society, founded in 1888, has the power, unique in North America, to make corporations of its member organizations.
The meeting heard that our Business Plan, produced by the team of Goldsmith Borgal and Company Architects and Canadian Cultural Resource Consultants, has been finalized and will be presented to the City of Hamilton in the fall.
In other news, George Thomson and Barbara Murray completed BCLG’s application to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for a grant in aid of a short video production which will be used to develop awareness of the light station, its importance to the early development of the area, and its potential to become a living link with history for students and other interested groups and individuals in Hamilton/Burlington. A decision is expected in September.
