The Small Town in Me


Share Your Thoughts | Impressions | Memories

There is a small town in each and everyone of us. Even if we have never lived in a small town, or traveled 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

  • 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?
