CMCA is preparing for their annual historic event on Sat. May 5th (noon- 4 p.m.) at Clar-Mill Hall, Plevna. CMCA aims to make archival materials available to the entire community. Our event encourages community pride and history. If you enjoyed the Store and Lodge events, plan to join us for our “Mystery History Tour” based on our latest book Historic Tours of North Frontenac. This book was made possible with a grant from the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area and a sponsorship by North Frontenac Township.
In response to public feedback there is not a “scheduled” program, so people will have more time to browse the exhibits. Admission is FREE. You will receive a K&P ticket at the door that will serve as your passport as you travel around from “hamlet to hamlet”. The K&P train display is expected to be a hit with young and old. Our thanks to Franco Balestro for the loan and setup of his train and to Sharbot Lake Heritage Train Museum for the artifacts loaned for display. Lunch will be available ($10) at the Trout Lake Hotel train stop. Door prizes will be awarded from: CMCA, Tuscany Concrete, Watersheds Canada, Trout Lake Hotel, Cineplex Theatre, Chapters/Indigo, Stone Ridge Art Studio, and Golden Maples Farm.
This is an interactive event which starts in next week’s paper, on CMCA website and Facebook page. If you are not within The Frontenac News readership area, check with a friend to get a blank K&P Boarding Pass. Only one Boarding Pass per person. There will be Boarding Passes in three editions of The Frontenac News. You will need to solve three Mystery Clues if you want a chance to win the Grand Prize Package worth over $1200!
