Book 2, entitled, "Hey, It's 'Made in Hamilton' ", was introduced on September 25th at our annual show and sale. The first volume, "This is a Beautiful City", has been available since 2014.

A Success Story!
Back in November 2014 we received the following request.
"I work at a long term care home in Dundas with a large percentage of our residents who suffer from dementia. We have purchased your book and would love to enlarge a number of the images to hang in the halls of our 'home' to assist in 'engaging' and reminiscing with our residents with cognitive impairment."
Working with Karen McClemont, Resident Program Manager, Blackadar
Continuing Care Centre in Dundas we agreed on a selection of images
that were felt to be the best for the situation. Staples Office
Supplies in the Ancaster Meadowlands then produced from files supplied
by GHPCC two copies of each of the six images. One set was placed in
existing frames at the home while the other set, to go on another floor
in the home, was mounted at "Sealed-Art" at the corner of Main Street
East and Gage Avenue in Hamilton.
