Definitely not Gas 

I speculated that the digging outside the courthouse might be something to do with town gas. Wrong! definitely not gas. Seating and raised flower beds, I’m told.


Farewell Little Lilac Studio

Listowel has lost one of its little gems. The Lilac Studio was a really lovely visitor experience . My grandchildren loved it and we spent many happy times there. We have some lovely souvenirs to show for it.

Here are some photos from our last visit.

Kathy was always infinitely patient and kind to her customers. She is a natural teacher, supportive and encouraging. We always left her little studio, feeling better for the experience. Our town is poorer for the loss of this little artistic, child friendly place.
