Our walk along Melville (formerly Elgin) Avenue – the street is comprised of distinctive outdoor stairs that lead to 1890s stone triplexes.
Do you remember these?
In the past, the city designed and distributed badges during their annual Family Day and Winter Carnival festivities.
I recall Beverly Adams, a former member of the Sports and Recreation Department, was responsible for involving local children in their design.
This is a sample of our collection:
A (very) chilly walk through the park this evening. The city had their 34th annual Winter Carnival today – sleigh rides, free hot dogs and maple taffy in the snow. In the past, the city would design lovely badges (with pins) for those attending this event. (I have a box full of these dating back to the 1980s when our daughter was small). I am sure for safety (and legal) reasons that tradtion has been discontinued. How did we ever manage to grow up safely in the 1950 and 1960s!
