Live Video Check-Ins

Monday, March 16th to Monday, April 6th

Update: A change to our schedule is coming for the remainder of this section of our Live Video Check-Ins. We are happy to be bringing you content from a local author. Details coming soon!

Social distancing doesn’t have to mean social disconnection! Though we may temporarily be closed, our Public Programming Coordinator Alison will be checking in with everyone on our Facebook page using Facebook Live at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. each day– featuring online storytime, anecdotes about some of our buildings, activities, and crafts. Other simple suggestions of things to do will also pop-up along the way.

The Village will be partnering with our friends from the Museum of Ontario Archaeology for more social media check-in so be sure to keep your eye on their Facebook page too!

Wednesday, March 25th will be Wilf Wednesday! Content from the Museum of Ontario Archaeology and the Village will focus on our the man who helped create both of these local gems!
