Hanna Roundhouse Society president Sandra Beaudoin and Intern Architect Chris Moorhouse will speak to the Chinook Country Historical Society in Calgary this Tuesday, April 25.
 
"Chris will be doing a presentation based on the architecture history of the building," outlined Beaudoin. "I will be sharing my experience as far as trying to restore a heritage building in a rural area."
 
"I've made mistakes and I think if a person can learn from their mistakes and maybe share some of that with people, maybe they can avoid some of that" she continued. "I'm finding that every historical restoration is different and if this can give them any insight this would be amazing."
 
Tuesday's presentation is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in the John Dutton Theatre at the Central Library Building in downtown Calgary and should last about an hour. Beaudoin is hoping to have it recorded for future use in promoting the Roundhouse restoration and Hanna as a whole.
 
"We've had a lot of negative in the media, just in the sense of being a coal community," she noted. "The more positive that we can share out there, I think it kind of helps some of the residents refocus to more of a positive attitude with what might happen in the future."
