With all that gorgeous weather mid-March there is something normalizing by having a snowstorm last night. Nothing serious and barely a skiff on the ground but a reminder that we normally still have ice in the lake.
Research has slowed at this point as we work to get the doll cottage completed for the Easter weekend and the launch of the raffle. The doll cottage will be on display at the Park during the Easter Eggstravaganza on April 7th (start time 1:00pm with the Easter Egg hunt beginning at 1:30pm).

Tickets for the Raffle will be $5 each or 5 for $20. The draw will take place Saturday, August 11th at the Sturgeon Point Union Church. The money raised will go to support the History Project's work.
On a slightly different topic, with Easter coming many of you will be coming north. The History Project is collecting images of "Sturgeon Point on the Water" for the Canada Day display and of 2nd Street for the Civic Holiday display. We hope that you have spent the winter looking through your albums and have some great images for us. Please drop us a line or give us a call if you have any pictures.
And if you kindly left albums in my care last Fall, I need to be getting them back to you. So if you are up, please swing by or give me a call.
