It’s been TEN years!

by admin on April 8, 2017

Thanks to all you wonderful folks and a bit of hard work, we’ve survived in Durham: we are still chugging after ten years! What does it take? A willingness to accept challenges outside your zone, a load of experience, and some elbow grease.

Please join us for our celebration, Monday May 15. We will serve refreshments and be open from 11-4.

Join us on the first Friday of May for our regular painting night, the 5th, from 4:30-7:30.

Here are some family photos, from 2007 and 2016. Enjoy!

RailQuest on display

Ever since I was a kid, I drew comics. But this is the first time I’m going to finish one.

Pages 1 through 16 are now on display at the Walkerton Branch Library, and the rest of the story will be published in the new year.

The story is allegorical, about a guy following an old rail trail and being swept into a high-speed quest to fix a shaky train. It covers a lot of philosophical ground, as it is autobiographical, and I like philosophy. Strange characters enter the mix, from Starhawk to Pope Benedict XVI.

Enjoy! Hours for the library:

Tues and Thurs 12-8

Wed, Fri and Sat 10-5
