This year the Sturgeon Point History Project will be holding a raffle. Our big prize will a dollhouse built to replicate the Campbell Cottage on 1st Street. Other prizes will be announced at a later date.
The dollhouse is being built by Jay Vehrs and will be decorated by Liane Kennedy to reflect the known history of this cottage and the combined decorative style of most of our cottages - comfortable, unchanging over decades, accommodating of wet swimsuits and wet dogs, comfortable for a beer or martini on the porch, strewn with life jackets, golf clubs, bicycles, National Geographics, last weekend's paper, towels on the line and a couch long enough for a Saturday afternoon snooze. Artistic enough for an adult to enjoy and large enough for small fingers to play with.
The house will be on display at community events beginning with Easter in the Park in April. Tickets will be sold through until August 11th when the draw will take place at the end of the talk by John Summers of the Canadian Canoe Museum at the Church.
Here is a sneak peak at one of the furniture pieces - a bench to go at the back door... a spot for a Popsicle or to shell peas...

We look forward to sharing the development of the dollhouse with you and we hope that you will continue to support the Sturgeon Point History Project.
