Blanchet House Neighbors are shining up Old Town history

img_61847On November 5, a group of folks from Blanchet House and the Old Town Chinatown Arts, Culture and History Committee got together  for the inaugural Bronze Plaque Shine-Up.  The group  traveled down 3rd and 4th Ave, cleaning all 20 bronze plaques of the historic walking tour. These plaques tell the history of Old Town Chinatown with botanical motif, the languages spoken here and the words of contemporaries who remember their early years living and working here.  

Neighbors who live and work at the Blanchett House will clean the plaques regularly and encourage people they meet to take the Bronze Plaque Walking Tour.
