H-Factor. Heritage Minutes.

Local students can come to the Reach  for a free after-school program designed to make learning history fun.

Participants will create, script and perform one-minute vignettes based on the popular Historica Heritage Minutes.

The Reach will post them to YouTube and The Reach website so the whole community, and the world, can enjoy them.

With the help of a UFV history student, using the vast store of information held in the Reach archives, participants research historical events or outstanding citizens then develop a Reach Minute.

Minutes workshops are Thursday afternoons, 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at The Reach, 32388 Veterans Way.

Funding for this program is provided by the Rotary Club of Abbotsford and Rotary International (District 5050).

Pre-registration is required. Contact Kris at kfoulds@thereach.ca or 604-864-8087 ext 112.
