County Fair Mall past and present staff photo this weekend

1:00pm
A past employee at the County Fair Mall in Smiths Falls is organizing a photo in front of the mall, that is slated for demolition.
Tracey Merkley would like all mall employees, past and present, to come out for one final photo before the mall closes in the New Year.
She said the idea was just a random idea that has gotten bigger and bigger, and now the picture is set to be taken Sunday, Nov. 27 at 1 p.m.
Any of the mall’s staff members, former or current, are welcome to participate in what they hope will be a photo of the mall’s multi-generational workforce.
Merkley says she worked at many different stores in the mall over nearly two decades, just like her mother who worked at the old Zellers store for more than 25 years. She told the Record News, “We’re trying to encourage people to come out and reminisce and get one last photo before they tear the mall down.”

The Last of the Good Years, Lyle Dillabough’s examination of “life, barrooms and small towns in Canada during the 1960s and ’70s,” will be presented at The Station Theatre in Smiths Falls on Sunday, November 27 at 2pm. Based on recollections that Lyle (also known as the Valley Troubadour) wrote down while in hospital after a near-death experience, it will feature live music by area musicians who performed back in the ’60s and ’70s at The Mariner’s Inn, as well as at hotels such as The Arlington, The Rideau and The Russell. All proceeds after expenses will be donated to the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank, and tickets are only $10 at the door (cash only). Doors open at 1:30.

Talk: Franklin’s Lost Ships Found

2:00pm
Talk by Jonathan Moore, a member of the Parks Canada Underwater Archaeology Team that discovered the first of Franklin’s lost ships, the HMS Erebus.
In support of the Heritage House Museum.
In 1845, explorer Sir John Franklin set sail from England with two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, in search of a Northwest Passage across what is now Canada’s Arctic. For over 150 years, groups have been sent to the Canadian Arctic in an attempt to learn the fate of the Franklin expedition. In 2014, there was a breakthrough when an expedition led by Parks Canada found the long-lost wreck of HMS Erebus. On September 12 (2016) the wreck of the HMS Terror was discovered 50km away from the wreck of the HMS Erebus. The extraordinary efforts leading to this discovery have brought together government and public, private and non-profit organizations from 2008 to present. The use of both state-of-the-art technology and 19th-century Inuit oral testimony made this historic find possible.
Tickets are going quickly at only $20 per person and are available at Heritage House Museum (11 Old Sly’s Road in Smiths Falls, 283–6311). The museum is open weekdays 10:30am to 4:30pm, weekends noon to 4:30pm.

County Fair Mall past and present staff photo this weekend

1:00pm
A past employee at the County Fair Mall in Smiths Falls is organizing a photo in front of the mall, that is slated for demolition.
Tracey Merkley would like all mall employees, past and present, to come out for one final photo before the mall closes in the New Year.
She said the idea was just a random idea that has gotten bigger and bigger, and now the picture is set to be taken Sunday, Nov. 27 at 1 p.m.
Any of the mall’s staff members, former or current, are welcome to participate in what they hope will be a photo of the mall’s multi-generational workforce.
Merkley says she worked at many different stores in the mall over nearly two decades, just like her mother who worked at the old Zellers store for more than 25 years. She told the Record News, “We’re trying to encourage people to come out and reminisce and get one last photo before they tear the mall down.”

Lyle Dillabough’s The Last of the Good Years

Based on recollections that Lyle (also known as the Valley Troubadour) wrote down while in hospital after a near-death experience, it will feature live music by area musicians who performed back in the ’60s and ’70s at The Mariner’s Inn, as well as at hotels such as The Arlington, The Rideau and The Russell. All proceeds after expenses will be donated to the Smiths Falls Community Food Bank, and tickets are only $10 at the door (cash only). Doors open at 1:30.

Talk: Franklin’s Lost Ships Found

2:00pm
Talk by Jonathan Moore, a member of the Parks Canada Underwater Archaeology Team that discovered the first of Franklin’s lost ships, the HMS Erebus.
In support of the Heritage House Museum.
In 1845, explorer Sir John Franklin set sail from England with two ships, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror, in search of a Northwest Passage across what is now Canada’s Arctic. For over 150 years, groups have been sent to the Canadian Arctic in an attempt to learn the fate of the Franklin expedition. In 2014, there was a breakthrough when an expedition led by Parks Canada found the long-lost wreck of HMS Erebus. On September 12 (2016) the wreck of the HMS Terror was discovered 50km away from the wreck of the HMS Erebus. The extraordinary efforts leading to this discovery have brought together government and public, private and non-profit organizations from 2008 to present. The use of both state-of-the-art technology and 19th-century Inuit oral testimony made this historic find possible.
Tickets are going quickly at only $20 per person and are available at Heritage House Museum (11 Old Sly’s Road in Smiths Falls, 283–6311). The museum is open weekdays 10:30am to 4:30pm, weekends noon to 4:30pm.
