Fun on the Farm at Hickory Lane Alpacas

September 1, 2020
Rob Plumley

Although I was born and raised here in Lennox & Addington, I've never really been exposed to the ins and outs of farming, despite all the great agricultural operations in our area. 

I've done hay once in my life (which was plenty) and other than help my childhood neighbour get his cows back on the right side of the fence every now and then, I haven't had much exposure to that way of life.

On display until December 11, 2020.

This show represents a selection of favourite cartoons as well as the Canadian Community Newspaper Award winners. They have all appeared in the pages of the Napanee Beaver sometime between 2003 and 2020.

While many of these cartoons have been inspired by life in Greater Napanee, they could have been inspired by life in any one of a number of small towns. If you have ever lived in a small town you will undoubtedly recognize situations and characters portrayed here.

Capturing Lennox & Addington County

August 26, 2020
Rob Plumley

Sometimes I forget how lucky I am to call Lennox & Addington my home.

Given the nature of my job with the County, it's in my best interest to shout from the rooftops about how great life is here. Don't get me wrong, I really do think that we live in a special place. But recently I had a chance to take a step back and experience our County from a visitor's perspective.

It re-affirmed my belief about how good we've got it here in L&A.

Smallmouth Bass on Mazinaw Lake

For the next stop on my memorable tour of Lennox & Addington County, I headed off to chase smallmouth bass on Mazinaw Lake with my significant other and our pup. I hadn't been to this area since I was a kid so it was wonderful to revisit this location, which is even more beautiful than I remembered.
