Unveiling the marker

A newly installed heritage marker calls for a celebration. Here are some suggestions for showcasing the work that has gone into preparing your marker:

  • You may wish to hold an unveiling event to feature your successful project.
  • This event can be as simple or lavish as you wish.
  • Try to invite all those who assisted with the plaque project – including the property owners and any individuals or families with a direct historical connection to the marker subject.
  • You may also want to invite local dignitaries and let the local newspapers and radio stations know about your event ahead of time.
  • There might be a small platform party where people can bring remarks and guests may be invited to share their connections to the marker subject. 

Congratulations are in order all around for sharing an important part of your community heritage!
