Changing faces of fundraising

Twenty years ago, almost to the day, I was the chair of a fundraiser for what was known as Collingwood Community Hospice. We were a dynamic little group of volunteers who were able to bring support to individuals and families coping with life threatening illness as well as bereavement follow up.

A vintage handbill advertises recruits wanted for a lancer regiment headed by Arthur Rankin to fight in the U.S. Civil War.

Man of action, questionable results

Upper Canada, Canada West and Ontario — different names for the same place. It was built by a wide range of characters: surveyors, soldiers, politicians, miners, entrepreneurs, scrappers and showmen.

REFLECTIONS: Superheroes rise again

My apologies! We were away on holidays for a couple of weeks and returned to the realization that I immediately had a date with Wonder Woman, Ironman and Spiderman in Buffalo.

Cyclists take note

One of my favourite trails in this wonderful area is the Arboretum, off of First Street in Collingwood.
