There are a lot of maple syrup producers in Lanark County.
There were booths looking for volunteers, as well as a booth where you could sign up for the Perth Kilt Run (2014 photos).
We went first thing, to avoid crowds. They give us the heebee jeebies! Most booths were good to go. There were some cars still evacuating the area...
We saw the Coutts boys in their booth. We asked, "Where's Mom?" Apparently, she was there to set up, then went back to the shop for the day!
This is where I get my pumpkins!

They sit beside the Tay River.
Back to the main street!
Cat's Meow is the 'cat spa' where we take our cats when travelling. I have photos of them here! The 4 cats were there in Aug., 2015.
It's a lovely setting in a 200-year-old town.
This is the group we volunteer with; me hospice, hubby Meals on Wheels. Hubby was on Lake 88 radio, talking about his work as a Meals On Wheels volunteer. You can listen to his interview here:
JB was on with Client Services Supervisor, Suzanne, and they had 6 people sign up since then!
Hubby bought himself some frozen soup.
Algonquin College has a terrific trades program. They were letting people lay brick, providing some tutorials! We so need young people to go into the trades.
Student and teacher!
With the main drag closed, there was some traffic! We scooted on over to Almonte, afterwards.
