Game Night - Stone Age - Nov 12th

We will be playing stone age on the 12th.  There is limited space to get in on this game, but don't worry we usually have some else on the go as well!

The Dawn of Mankind. Our ancestors were hard workers, resting only very little. Luckily for us, their ingenuity allowed them to make their work easier, day after day. In Stone Age, players are sent back to that arduous period of history. With tools, quite archaic at first, you will be able to collect wood, stone and gold. These resources will allow you to attain higher levels of knowledge and build sturdier roofs over your head. Though luck plays an im­portant part in the game, only those who master their fate will be able to grasp victory. Finally, one mustn’t forget to feed their tribe, as that would represent a major setback for them. Relive history!

Mud, Muskeg & Mosquitoes author Event & Signing

Author Diane Armstrong will be in the store on Oct 16th from 6pm to 8pm to sign copies and talk about her book Mud, Muskeg & Mosquitoes!!

This historically factual creative non-fiction book concerns a remarkable woman who married and moved to ‘New Ontario’ in 1907 to become an outstanding community member, one of the first women elected to a School Board in Ontario, and mother to eight children. She was also the author's grandmother. More than mere history, this story recounts the difficulties with the mud, muskeg, mosquitoes Diane Armstrong and many other situations she dealt with to become a part of our history here in north-eastern Ontario. Diane Armstrong has taken her years of writing, researching and interviewing skills to write this compelling and factual account of her grandmother's life as it coincides with the development of the T&NO Railway in Northern Ontario and we share her life in great detail from 1900 to 1942.
