Mart­in­town Mill

Well, it is here!! This week­end (Sept 24-25) is Ap­ples and Art and the last week­end for the Mill to be open for the Summer. It cer­tainly has been an event­ful summer, and if peo­ple are read­ing this and have not been to the mill this year, it is time for a visit. Let's see... new roof, new win­dows, im­prove­ments to elec­tri­cal wiring, wrought iron fenc­ing, new door, stage, sound sys­tem... AND Home­com­ing, Tril­lium Grant, South Glen­garry 50/ 50 Match­ing grant... it is tir­ing just men­tion­ing it all.

What will we do for our last hur­rah? We will have Brenda Mader, Pot­ter Ex­traor­di­naire who has just opened her own stu­dio in Alexan­dria, Su­san Irv­ing, she of the mixed me­dia paint­ing, re­mind­ing the viewer of mo­saics, Bar­bara Bracken whose jewellery uses semi-pre­cious stones and a va­ri­ety of other prod­ucts, and Dr. Bob Tay­lor whose paint­ings are truly lovely and di­verse in con- tent and medium. These artists are part of the A &A tour and will be in the mill on Satur­day and Sun­day. Out­side, we will still have a num­ber of our ven­dors who have been with us all summer: Pat­tie and Don­ald do­ing what they do with wood, Jo Sweet, who will have ap­ple treats as well as her reg­u­lar bak­ing the three Lin­das with jams and jel­lies, batik and tie dye, and ster­ling sil­ver jewellery and Thai by Toy food to fill the tummy and please the heart! And it will the last chance to buy our tick­ets for the Mill raf­fle art­work do­nated by our tal­ented artists to cel­e­brate our 170th an­niver­sary. These artists have cre­ated works rep­re­sent­ing their views of the Mart­in­town Mill, as well as other fas­ci­nat­ing work which will be on dis­play in­side the mill on the Satur­day and Sun­day!!!

We will also have some spe­cial treats in­side for those who are on the tour to sam­ple. It should be a good two days.

This is my last chance to thank all those vol­un­teers with­out whom the Mill could not go on: Those who show up faith­fully every Sun­day be­fore 8 o'clock in rain or hot sun to set up the tents and ta­bles for the ven­dors, and then stick around to help them un­load and put their dis­plays out, and then re­turn around 3: 30 to take ev­ery­thing down; the other vol­un­teers who spend the day with us, pick­ing up the slack, man­ning booths and sell­ing for peo­ple who need to be cov­ered, who jump into the fray when­ever and wher­ever they are needed - I can't be­gin to tell how much we de­pend on all of them. Vol­un­teers are the heart and soul of an or­ga­ni­za­tion like the Mart­in­town Mill Preser­va­tion Group, and they do ev­ery­thing with­out thanks or com­pen­sa­tion. Thank you, big time Vol­un­teers!! See you next summer!
