Spring Returns to Lanark

Sap buckets hung on maple trees

No, we didn’t get the My Main Street grant we applied for. But it won’t be the last one we apply for, and we’ll get the more important ones: the ones to fund the restoration of the Kitten Mill.

Meanwhile, the idea of making Lanark into a Heritage Destination site – and thus creating a new form of tourism; more customers for local businesses; and some of the local economic development that has been so sadly lacking – is still on the drawing board. Without the My Main Street grant, we’ll have to scale down our ambitions a bit, but with community support and volunteers, we can still run a Lanark Village Heritage Day. Stay tuned for the details!

And in the meantime, look at the wonderful video just posted: Memories of Kitten Mill workers.
