The APEGBC East Kootenay Branch would like to invite you to tour the McVittie House and Survey Office.

It’s time to revitalize the East Kootenay Branch!  Please join our team  and put your name forward for available volunteer branch executive positions by October 9th.  We will hold a brief AGM, after touring the renewed McVittie House and Survey Office.

The McVittie House and Survey Office recently opened to the public with volunteer work renewing the buildings over the last 20 years. This will be your last (and best) chance to see the entire buildings, not just from behind gates or through windows. See news article >

Thomas McVittie was a Civil Engineer and Land Surveyor in Ft. Steele 1885 to 1910 and very much involved in the Wildhorse gold rush, early settlement and resource development of the East Kootenay region. Following the tour, we will have elections, buy-your-own lunch, and networking. We hope to see you there!

John Armstrong, P.Eng., BCLS, CLS.
