Tuesday, October 1, 2013 at the library - Joan Hug-Valeriote's documentary about selective logging on a small woodlot in Puslinch. Because of the steepness of the terrain in this woodlot, Greg Parker and his team of Belgians were used to harvest the logs, (and thus minimized damage to the land.) This documentary evokes earlier times in Puslinch.
Spirit Walk in Crown cemetery was held Tuesday, June 11, 2013.
What follows is narratives from the 4 life stories for the evening.
