To be honest, before I started my internship here at the Museum and Archives, I hadn’t spent much time exploring Lennox and Addington County. Despite having boarded the ferry across to Adolphustown countless times and taken that scenic drive along Bath Road, I had never really paused to take in the beauty and history that Lennox and Addington has to offer.
If your chef skills are as subpar as mine are, nothing beats a delicious meal made by someone else. There's no prep work involved, no clean up is required, and let's face it -- it's actually edible.
While dining out at a local restaurant may feel a bit different these days, there are many great locations here in Lennox & Addington that are ready to host your bubble for a fantastic holiday meal. Many offer takeout, curbside pickup, delivery and online ordering options. Gift cards and certificates to local restaurants also make great stocking stuffers.
Join the L&A County Museum & Archives for a series of workshops with local artisan, Linda Fraser, as she teaches us how to create traditional holiday items with a twist! She will be sharing her passion for pottery, felting and creating wood decorations.
Video tutorials led by Linda will be posted on www.CountyMuseum.ca and available on-demand throughout the holiday season.
Here are the workshops... Enjoy!

Marg recently enjoyed The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett by Annie Lyon, a "charming, heart wrenching story" that she considers one her favourite books of the year. Here is her review:
Once in a while a special book comes along that tugs at ones heartstrings, The Brilliant Life of Eudora Honeysett by Annie Lyons was that book for me. This charming, heart wrenching story is one that I came across at just the right time for me and is one I will not soon forget.
