A Little Bit of Limerick
 
 
Limerick Township, itself a small bit of Hastings County, is about to publish a new book called History Bits, Limerick Township is one of Hastings County's smaller municipalities, with only 300 residents and maybe 1000 cottagers on a holiday weekend in the summer. Limerick Township is south of Bancroft and near Coe Hill. The 500-page book will be published this summer by a seniors' group. Price to be determined. Edited by Catharines Valliθres, History Bits contains a collection of material received from more than 50 contributors. Here's Catharine Valliθres with a cover shot of the book. Among the main features in Limerick worth visiting outside the snow season are the Old Schoolhouse Tea Room and the Country Store in Ormsby. The township is named after a town in Ireland and probably someone has already composed a limerick about the place. We'd welcome new ones. Clean and publishable only, please.

Distilling the Past 
 
The Distillery District in Toronto is a dynamic example of heritage preservation. Sylvia French of Wallbridge House Publishing told the story of this heritage distillation process to the Friends of Glanmore National Historic Site. She traced the District's history from a distilling complex, once the largest in the world, to a pedestrians-only locale dedicated to arts, culture and entertainment. There were also references to local distilleries, Corby's north of Belleville and the new Gilead 66 Distillery in Prince Edward County. This presentation is available from Wallbridge House Publishing for clubs and other interested groups. Contact us here.

We found Uncle Oscar's grave

In October, 2013, a small expedition of the Elmer French family went to Europe in search of the grave of their uncle, Pte. Oscar French, who was killed in 1917 at Vimy Ridge. They found it in Nine Elms Military Cemetery.

Oscar was an teenage farm boy when he enlisted in the Canadian army in 1915. During training, he became a machine gunner. As the famous attack on Vimy Ridge began on Easter Monday, April 9, 1917, he and another soldier were hit by shellfire. It is the intent of writer Orland French to incorporate his uncle's letters into a book on the First World War.
