July 8, 2016It is with deep sadness that we share the peaceful passing of Herbert Brian Howland Stewart on June 16, 2016 after a brief illness. He was an architect and past board member of Heritage Winnipeg, and his volunteerism and support contributed to the success of many heritage projects. He will be missed by our community, he was a good friend to heritage in our city.

Our idea was to one day reunite these pieces of our history with Winnipeggers. We are thrilled to announce that that day is now here. The shards have found their home at Shelmerdine Garden Centre. The shards are available for viewing, and some are available to purchase. We encourage all of you to visit Shelmerdine Garden Centre at 7800 Roblin Boulevard to view these memories of historic Winnipeg.
Thank-you so much to Shelmerdine for displaying the shards. We can't wait for them to find permanent homes.
You can read more about the shards at https://www.shelmerdine.com/past/

The Manitoba Museum put on a fabulous event that offered free admission to the museum & access to various exhibits in Alloway Hall to help celebrate Manitoba's 146th birthday!
It was the biggest event yet, with nearly 10,000 people in attendance. We are thrilled to have been a part of this event, and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
