Frances Willard Commemoration and Walking Tour of Stanley Park Monuments

Join the Vancouver Heritage Society for a historic commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the unveiling of the Frances Willard Plaque in Stanley Park. The plaque commemorates the 100th birthday of Frances Elizabeth Willard, founder of the World Women’s Christian Temperance Union, the organization that led the campaign for women winning the vote in many countries. Historian Chris Hay will discuss the historic importance of the plaque and events to BC women winning the vote. 

Following the event, join Donald Luxton, past-President of Heritage Vancouver, for a lively and informative walking tour of some of the monuments in Stanley Park, including the Japanese Canadian War Memorial, which is currently under restoration. To register for this event, click here.
