Southwold Visits the Capital

Elgin County Warden/Southwold Mayor Grant Jones, Communities in Bloom Chair Valerie Cron, their spouses, and area Southwold residents took a trip to Ottawa this past weekend to take part in Canada 150 celebrations as well as witness the grand opening of the brand new Canadian History Hall that opened to the public at the Canadian Museum of History. Southwold was featured in this interactive exhibit to tell the stories of early settlers of the township and to virtually educate viewers about how to set up the land and build shelter as though they are the families in the stories.
