    Lafontaine’s living museum

    Lafontaine’s Living Museum will be held from 6 to 12 November in the parish hall of Lafontaine at 327 Lafontaine Road West in Tiny Township. This year’s theme will be hobbies and games.

    There will be an exhibition of games and hobbies from a bygone era. While children played games, adults often made crafts: rugs, quilts and more. Or they would go fishing – without radar or gadgets. Collecting was a popular pass-time. So were sports!

    The museum will once again receive school groups from across the region. In addition to a guided tour of the exhibit, the students will play old games − from croquignole and marbles to skip rope and kick the can.
