Volunteers are still needed!

Call for Action to Members and the Community:

Deep Cove Heritage Society needs your help and support in preserving our rich history of Deep Cove and the surrounding area of Seymour.

The DCHS was established first and foremost for the public, be it general interest or research purposes. It was established in 1985 by a dedicated group of volunteers, many of whom are still with us today. The Heritage would not be able to survive without it’s volunteers.

We are calling on the next generation to volunteer their time in order to keep the Heritage going.

It is a great way to connect to the community and learn about our local history.

There are many volunteer opportunities at hand. Call us at 604-929-5744, or drop by our office at 4360 Gallant Avenue (inside the Deep Cove Cultural Centre.)
