A New Community Photo for Port Hope
Sponsored by the Canadian Firefighter’s Museum.
The Canadian Firefighter’s Museum is organizing a new Port Hope Community photo, inviting past, present and future residents to come out and get in on the project.
Inclusion in the picture is by donation and copies of the 12″ X 40 ” finished product will be available for sale for 30 dollars each, including shipping. The photo is being taken by world record holder Chris Creighton, a Port Hope native, who is coming to Port Hope from Cambridge to take the photo using his antique, large format camera. Proceeds from the event go to the Canadian Firefighters Museum, based in Port Hope.
The photo op takes place on Saturday August 4th at 3:00 pm at the town park during Port Hope’s Homecoming weekend. The photo will be taken in the South Fields inside the corral area. Skeena sea cadets have volunteered their time to help with parking and logistics. We will have a table, set up and manned by students, to take orders for pictures and will have volunteers standing at the paddock area in the south field accepting donations on behalf of the museum.
Everyone is encouraged to come and be a part of this great community event. It won’t be the same if you’re not there so please plan to attend….. Saturday, August 4th, 3.00 p.m. Port Hope Agricultural Park, south field.
