Classic scene

Lisa Peppan washed dishes at Derby Reach Park on Saturday.  Peppan was re-enacting Mary Huston, a composite character of the Metis women of the fur-trade era of the late 1850s and early 1860s.  Co-sponsored by the GVRD, Parks Canada, and Langley Township, "Passport to the Past" was an afternoon event that celebrated Fort Langley's History as the birthplace of B.C.  It featured displays, games, crafts, and a walk along the Fort-to-Fort Trail.
