Beckwith Heritage Days

I started off the morning in Ashton, Ontario but was a bit too late to photograph the cyclists heading toward Kingston so, instead, I headed over to the Beckwith Community Complex where they were celebrating the Beckwith Heritage Day. I found a great spot to park, exchanged a few licks with Buttons and then wandered around the grounds with camera in hand.

Faye Campbell, Councillor, Beckwith Township was Buttons’ owner and was happy to share information with me about the changes in the Township – new ice rink, multiple soccer pitches including a lit artificial turf field and trails to Carleton Place.

An information/demonstration/educational session about reptiles was fun to attend and the children certainly enjoyed seeing the creatures from Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo.

While this snapper was just lying around on its back, outside the local firefighters were providing tours of their shiny red fire trucks.
