A recent visit to the Dundurn Castle Gift Shop gave me a chance to record this scene.
Our "This is a Beautiful City" book of Hamilton post cards is front and centre at the checkout point.
Laura Lee Montecalvo, a gift shop clerk, adds
another level of Hamilton beauty to the scene.
Be sure to mark your calendars.
Wednesday, January 27th is the date of our next meeting.
Visit the Meetings & Location page for details.

A Success Story!
Back in November 2014 we received the following request.
"I work at a long term care home in Dundas with a large percentage of our residents who suffer from dementia. We have purchased your book and would love to enlarge a number of the images to hang in the halls of our 'home' to assist in 'engaging' and reminiscing with our residents with cognitive impairment."
Working with Karen McClemont, Resident Program Manager, Blackadar
Continuing Care Centre in Dundas we agreed on a selection of images
that were felt to be the best for the situation. Staples Office
Supplies in the Ancaster Meadowlands then produced from files
supplied by GHPCC two copies of each of the six images. One set was
placed in existing frames at the home while the other set, to go on
another floor in the home, was mounted at "Sealed-Art" at the
corner of Main Street East and Gage Avenue in Hamilton.
