John Galt freed for his special day

The tomb that had protected the John Galt statue in front of the old City Hall for the last year or more has been lifted just in time for John Galt Day on August 2nd.

The Guelph Historical Society, Old Stone Churches and the John Galt Committee are hosting  a traditional “kirking” at St. James the Apostle Church for the 2010 John Galt ecumenical service on Sunday August 1st.

John Galt Day festivities will occur on Monday August 2nd in John Galt Park outside the River Run.

Due to the urgent need of Sister Christine’s Drop In Centre and Chalmers’ food shelf, Knox Presbyterian Church has agreed to be a John Galt Food Drive drop off site this week. Anyone can donate non perishable food items at the Chapel Lane (rear) entrance to Knox Presbyterian Church between 9 a.m. and noon this week. The food will be shared by Sister Christine’s centre and Chalmers. Please ring the buzzer for entry at Knox. A food collection barrel is just inside the back door. The John Galt Food Drive will conclude on the upcoming John Galt Weekend. Thanks to all who participate in the food drive this year.
