Tom Thomson Event

March 06 2017    Staff

The ice bridge was taken down yesterday so that is a sure sign spring is on the way. The ice bridge had a short season this year and did not go up until mid February. The birds are starting to arrive so that must mean an early spring.The Bruce Mines Chamber of Commerce & Algoma Kinniwabi are hosting a Tom Thomson event on Sunday March 30 as he painted the town of Bruce Mines in 1912. Michael Burtch Art Historian will be presenting the life of Tom Thomson and validating that indeed it is a painting of Bruce Mines. The McKay Island Lighthouse has availability in April so plan a spring getaway to watch the birds migrating back to our area.
