Did you miss our Open Doors?

We had a lovely time welcoming people from Toronto, Bahamas, Iceland and Lansing, Michigan to name a few places.

Ian Grundy and Sherman Hesselgrave played the organ, Michael Shapcott played his concertina and the Pethalia Singers performed a mini concert of East Coast Kitchen Music. You can catch their whole performance this Sunday. Visit their website for details.

Thanks to Ken West, Bob Smyth, Jim Houston, Malcolm & Stella Savage, Lucas Oxby and Jonathan Robart there were friendly faces to welcome our guests, answer questions and generally be hospitable. It was good to be open in the Heart of the City!

Here’s a few photos from Jim Houston

New door hooks

Ever wondered what keeps our doors open?

We recently received new hooks forged by a son of the parish, Constable Joel Houston.  Did we mention that Constable Houston is part of the mounted unit for the Toronto Police Service? Deluxe delivery service as well as manufacturing the hooks.

Have a look at the process from horseshoe to door below:
