The former Greathead House

A major addition has taken place on the southwest corner of Huron and High Street in Southampton.  The old house (right) has been transformed into a much larger structure.  The Weichel Brothers (Devitt Uttley Inc.) have done a good job in blending the traditional old yellow brick into the new structure.  Good and tasteful changes like this are possible.

The Shoreline Artists really did a good job with their tour this year.  The guide was easy to follow and out on time.  There were  maps and many artists profiled.  It was their 12th annual tour and the printing of the guide by Austin Graphics of Port Elgin and Owen Sound helped to make the tour a pleasure.  (see the Saugeen Times coverage of some of the artists on the main page or in A&E)
