HFR4 Bonus Events

Burnaby Village Museum: Expanded Discovery Tour
Friday, Oct. 19, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Burnaby Village Museum is opening their doors just for the Hearties!  Admission cost is included in your registration fee.  We will also have a shuttle available from the host hotel to Burnaby.  Highlights include:

  • Stationed Exhibit Areas: 1920s style general store, blacksmith, schoolhouse, silent movie theater, herbalist's shop, barbershop
  • Carousel, gift shop, light menu available in the cafe
  • RCMP Staff Sergeant photo opportunity

For more information about the museum itself, check out the Burnaby Village Museum website.  

Transportation:   Great news!  We have secured a shuttle to transport Hearties to and from the host hotel for this event.  Please note that the time listed for this event is 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. and Hearties do not need to attend the entire time, just be sure to give yourselves enough time to check out all Burnaby has to offer.  We plan to run the shuttle between the hotel and Burnaby regularly, but do plan on some wait time if you are utilizing this transportation option.  Using the shuttle is not required, but we wanted to give Hearties without a vehicle this option.

Gifts warmly appreciated by the new mother-to-be include maternity bras, nursing pads, breast pumps, baby gates, and diapers (new items only). Newly-purchased or home-crafted crib blankets, burping pads, bibs, baby clothing and other baby needs are also welcome. 

Gifts can be dropped off in the Waterford Room at any point during the events Friday night and Saturday.  Gift tags will be provided.  Items will be donated following #HFR4 to the Dixon Transition Society, a shelter for women and children fleeing violence in Burnaby, BC. The items noted above as "warmly appreciated" were special requests from the shelter, based on frequent need. There are grocery stores and a major mall within walking distance of the hotel if you'd like to purchase something locally. Inquiries may be directed to Heartiesfamilyreunion@gmail.com.
