Municipal Heritage Award for Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw

I’m pleased to announce that thanks to my book Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw (Red Deer Press), I’ve been awarded a Municipal Heritage Award by the City of Regina. (I posted about it being nominated back in November.)

The award was presented tonight at the beginning of the City Council meeting by Mayor Pat Fiacco and Councillor Fred Clipsham; in the photo, Clipsham is on the left and the Mayor on the right. That’d be me in the middle, and I’ve also posted a close-up of the award down below.

The award reads, “City of Regina 2009 Municipal Heritage Award, Education Category, presented to Edward Willett, author, in recognition of a notable contribution to the celebration of and exposure to the built and cultural heritage of both

 Regina and Moose jaw, through the publication of his book entitled Historic Walks of Regina and Moose Jaw: Ten Walks to Points of Historical Architectural Interest.” It’s signed by Mayor Pat Fiacco.

It was a nice bit of recognition for a book that was a lot more work than I expected when I took it on, but that I ended up being very happy with.

UPDATE: And here’s a link to the LeaderPost story.
