Rave Reviews: November

This month we had another wonderful Rave Reviews program. I was joined by my colleague Jasna Cakmak who brought in some wonderful selections and we enjoyed tea, treats, and great conversation about the books we’re reading and how we pick them. Rave Reviews is one of my favourite programs because it’s such a great way to get talking about books and to share book recommendations. I have a love/hate relationship with book recommendations. For me, a major factor to consider is who’s doing the recommending. I read Continue Reading...

Throwback Thursday

The Throwback Thursday pic this week is of the Plante Brothers’ Red and White Grocery store located on the west side of Drouillard Road at 245 in Ford City. The photograph was taken around 1930.  I’m wondering what the two boys sitting on the steps had just bought at the store. The store was an on going business for about half a century opening in the early 1900s and closing in 1951 when Milan’s Lunch occupied this location. If you are interested in this or other historic images Continue Reading...
