History went to the market - the farmers' market, that is.
The Maple Ridge Historical Society set up displays in the gazebo at Memorial Peace Park during the Haney Farmers Market Saturday.
There were lots of old pictures and books, as well as "We Call It Haney" shirts and stickers.
People perused the collections set up on tables and boards, and were interested in what they saw.
"A lot of new residents will say, 'Oh, that's why that is like that or named that,' or people will say, 'I remember that,'" said Val Patenaude, Maple Ridge Museum director.
Maple Ridge Historical Society was formed in 1957 and has devoted more than 50 years to the protection, preservation, and sharing of all forms of community heritage.
Its mission is to provide current, former, and potential residents of the community with the means to make the history their own, through the collection, preservation, and sharing of historic images, documents, and artifacts.
In other news from the historical society, the Family History Group will host a workshop on Saturday, June 23, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
A beginner's start to tracing family history and showcasing community family history will be among the topics discussed.
The workshop will be at St. Andrew's Heritage Church at 22279 116th Ave. It is free for members of the Maple Ridge Historical Society, and $2 for non-members.
