Black Gold Tapestry Tour at the Glenbow Museum
Lunch at Milestones first

Calgary artist Sandra Sawatzky has agreed to provide a private tour for the PHS of her Black Gold Tapestry, a 67-metre-long, hand-embroidered artwork that tells the story of oil and gas. Lunch will be served in Milestones - in the same building as the Glenbow - at 11.30 and a fixed price menu will allow us to stay within the regular ticket price for PHS luncheons ($35 members, $40 non members).

Lunch with speaker David Finch and ?
at the Calgary Petroleum Club

The challenges of the Orphan Wells in Alberta are much in the news today, as they were in the 1980s when the need became apparent for a system to handle these problem wells. Historian David Finch will provide a background to the topic. We hope to be able to get someone from Alberta Energy Resources to update the issue to 2018 and provide perspective on the current and future opportunities. 

In addition, PHS scholarship recipient Jessica Weber will give us a brief update on her thesis about federalism and oil politics in Alberta.
