The Maumee Valley Heritage Corridor cordially invites you to attend What Comes After Fort to Port? The Future of History, Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Community in the Maumee Valley, Saturday, November 17, 2012 at Woodlan High School, 17215 Woodburn Road, Woodburn, IN 46797. A suggested donation of $5 will be collected at registration, which begins at 9:30. Opening remarks and introduction will begin at 10:00am. An optional luncheon buffet will be offered from 11:30-12:30, and requires a prepaid $12 reservation.
This day-long event is modeled after the original two-state meeting organized by then Indiana State Representative Mitch Harper in the late 1980’s that gave rise to the Fort to Port organization, leading to the successful completion of the improved US 24 highway between Fort Wayne and Toledo, Ohio.
The Keynote Presentation, scheduled for 12:30pm is “Two Hundred and Thirty Five Years of Canadian–U.S. Relations in an Hour”, presented by Canadian Consul General Roy Norton, PhD. This is a fast-paced look at the history of the Maumee Valley and Canada through the eyes of a neighbor from across Lake Erie.
Several morning workshops will be held, including: “What is a National Heritage Area, Anyway? “ presented by Ted Ligibel, PhD. This hour-long session is a lively look at honoring special places that combine a rich heritage with the geography itself.
Also offered is “How’s the Water?” presented by Abigail King and Bill Grimes. This session will focus on the common environmental issues found along the entire length of the Maumee River, and what solutions are possible.
Additional presenters may be added to the agenda. For more information, and to make reservations for the luncheon, contact Angie Quinn, Interim Executive Director, Indiana Office, 260-450-2057 firstname.lastname@example.org.
