Category: Community Events

L & A SOS Home and Garden Tour bigger and better this year This year’s tour features 10 properties throughout L & A County A riverside townhouse. Victorian style homes. A log home. Homes new and old, large and small, and beautiful gardens. Visitors on this year’s Home & Garden Tour hosted by the L & A Seniors Outreach Services (SOS) being held on Saturday, June 6 will be in awe. “We have expanded our tour to include seven homes and gardens and three additional gardens,” says Ruth Graham, who is co-ordinating the project for the fundraising committee of the SOS. “This is one of the highlights of the year for us, and one of our best fundraisers.” The self-guided tour includes properties in Napanee, Croydon, Wilton, Newburgh, and Odessa. Tour participants are welcome to start and stop wherever they wish. To allow lots of time to visit the properties, lunch will be the responsibility of the visitors. The SOS facility will be closed. A map is included in the $25 passport, which highlights the area of each property that will also be marked with signs and balloons. The fee for children between 6 and 12 years old is just $12, and free for children under 5. The passport must be shown at each property for admittance. Volunteers will be able to answer questions about the property and will guide visitors through the home and/or garden. Properties will be open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. “We are reminding people to be courteous at each home, removing your shoes before entering the house, and only going in the garden if that is all that is accessible,” says Graham. “To be respectful to the owners, no pets are allowed on the tour, we ask that children be well supervised at all times, and no smoking is allowed.” “We owe a special thank you to the generous home and garden owners who make this successful fundraiser possible by opening their beautiful homes and gardens for our viewing pleasure,” says SOS executive director Wendy McDonald on behalf of the Board of Directors. “Thank you as well to our sponsors and hardworking committees.” Passports for the event are already available at the SOS office at 310 Bridge Street West and at Gray’s IDA Drug Store on Dundas Street in Napanee. All proceeds from this event will be going to support the expenses for the SOS office relocation to the new LACGH Westdale Complex in July 2015.

Tuesday Night At The Museum

Date: June 16, 2015

Location: 97 Thomas Street East, Napanee

Category: Community Events

Exhibit opening! Join artist and photographer Tod Ainslie for an evening of talk. Tod will walk with us on the “Road to Freedom” through the lens of his pinhole camera. From a contemporary perspective, his photographs will guide you through the places and events prior to the Civil War and during a slave’s journey to get to the Promised Land known as Canada. Tod chooses historic sites that were seen through the eyes of the people who lived in that time, who traveled those roads and who lived their lives (or lost them) in these places. Tod captures a sense of historical truth in the images of these sites. However, 150 years of time and “progress” have either eroded or taken some of them out of this context, either through attempts to interpret them or the built environment has grown up around them. By using the specialized pinhole cameras for each site’s unique setting, a genuineness has been achieved. His beautiful photography captures a strong sense of the period’s aura, a sense of the places themselves and an empathy for the people whose lives were lived in them. About the Artist: Tod Ainslie is a practicing documentary pinhole photographer of historical sites and architecture, using his own self-designed and self-built cameras. His photographs straddle the fine line between purely documentary and fine art, as they capture not only the literal sites themselves, but also fragments of their aura and a sense of the people whose energies occupied them. He is particularly interested in the War of 1812 and the Underground Railroad. His work has been featured at the Royal Ontario Museum, Cambridge Centre for the Arts, The Carnegie Gallery, Grimsby Public Art Gallery, Toronto Image Works. and Old Fort York. Tickets are $3 each and are available at the door. Find out more by calling the museum at 613-354-3027.
