Walking tour of our village's old homes

This is yours truly flanked by my lady friends Cathy Wellesley (left) and Carol Field (right) during this summer's Historical Houses Walking Tour of King City.   We had so much fun doing this that we decided to mount another similar effort and have twice the fun.   Mark Sunday, October 2nd on your calendar if you're from around these parts, and meet us at All Saints Anglican Church, on Keele Street, in the middle of the village.   There will be eight costumed lovers of local history leading easy walks around the centre of the old village of Springhill (King City), starting with a short presentation in the chapel of All Saints.   We will finish with a special tour and refreshments at the King City Cemetery.   The Dead House at the cemetery will be transformed into a special mini-museum for the occasion (not as grim as it might sound).   The free tour lasts from 2 p.m. - 4.45 p.m. 

     
Pictured above is the 'Wedding Cake House', just one of many houses on the tour.   Please comment if you wish, or better still, come on the tour and I'll personally tell you some of the interesting stories about these old homes.

wonderful shot of you Barry and the two ladies.as if i see a fine picture from a film.you Canadians have yet the good aspect of life.you don't imagine what happens here in Europe.life has become very unstable with the economic crisis.but we see all those good photos from Canada and elsewhere so we forget a little the reality.winter approaches,i hope it will not be so cold.sometimes winter is good.with sunny days.me,i don't go out often now.i search the PC for ours and so i learned something about regulations.i have a hacker organization inside the PC.PHP NUKE was into the internet explorer 9 and it is most ennoying.we must take care to download only Microsoft products.so it is so tiring...i try to delete its files but it returns again.my regards to all your family.
