The Alder Grove Heritage Society invites you to an open house at the Telephone Museum and Community Archives from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Feb. 18 to celebrate both events.

They also are excited to announce the launch of a photography contest on this day called “Aldergrove Memories”. The contest is open to photographers of all ages and skills using either a camera or cell phone. Your photographs will be received as a Deed of Gift to the Society and may be included in our community archives.

Prizes for Best of Show and People’s Choice photographs will be awarded.
