CELEBRATE HOPE 225 in 2022: the 225th anniversary of the founding of the Vankleek Hill community.

The theme is HOPE/ESPOIR for the 2022 celebration of the 225th anniversary of the founding of the Vankleek Hill community.

Denis Seguin, a Vankleek Hill Historical Society director, explained the theme of Hope / Espoir, “We are exiting the pandemic in a disciplined manner, with hope for how we rebuild and move forward. Here we are, 225 years later, and hope is what unites us in building bridges to new understandings of what represents our community.”

Local organizations & businesses are adding their public events to a 2022 community calendar. For example, in 2022 the Musée Vankleek Hill Museum will open its permanent exhibit to honour the presence of the Indigenous peoples, and to recognize our imposed presence on unceded Anishinabe territory.

225 LOGO COMPETITION: WON BY REAGAN HALL!

The logo included the word “hope” / “l’espoir,” the number 225, and is identifiable as Vankleek Hill.
