There is a Small Town in Each and Everyone of Us
Even if we have never lived in a small town, or travelled through one, we have been touched by the memories, experience and humour of a friend or a relative who has grown up in such a community. Many of our own ancestors came to our country from small towns across the globe.
Share your thoughts and impressions and memories under the hashtag #TheSmallTownInMe
- Post old family photos or create new digital images that tell the world about your small town.
- Show us your old Town Hall or your new arena. Share pictures of labour day picnics from your childhood or the latest trophy shot of your triumphant lacrosse team.
- Upload an MP3 of your town band or images of the work of local artists.
- Send some newspaper clipping of a 4H trip abroad or write a short story about returning home to your small town after a long absence. Was it bitter or sweet? Or a bit of both?
