What a storm last night. Blustery winds with 78 KPH gusts. It was relentless. The house was shimming & shaking. This morning we saw the results of the onshore winds. The ice built up about 3 meters in front of our house. Quite a sight.
The Belle Vue Conservancy has finalized its relationship with the Town of Amherstburg. The Town officially took ownership of Belle Vue November 14, 2016. The hope is to restore the building to its former glory and to use it as a community focal point according to the article in the River Town Times. The Belle Vue Conservancy has launched its own website to help with the fundraising and has made a video of the intended remodel of this historic building.
You have to feel sorry for our poor sign. Through no fault of its own, it has been involved in several hit and runs over the years. I cannot believe that people do not see it. The most recent accident shook the sign to its foundation. Many hours of work went into rebuilding it. Thanks go out to Jonathan & Brian for readjusting it and to Keith for the excellent job re-pointing it. The sign has never looked so good!
