Jim Mountain is asking for guides to show a group of 48 people through Almonte on Wednesday, August 30th 9 am to 11:30. Says Jim:

They will be part of a group from some 50 countries who are attending a conference on heritage conservation in Ottawa. More information.

The tour starts at the Old Town Hall with welcomes and a presentation, and then the group is divided into 7 teams and will be assigned a walking tour quiz about downtown Almonte, ending up at the Textile Museum at 10:45 to see which team got the most answers right! I need a Mississippi Mills resident to be with each team to make them feel welcome here, and to make sure they get from the Old Town Hall to the Textile Museum on time !! It will be fun, interesting and refreshments are provided.
