HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM HISTORIC HAMILTON.

Hi Folks,

Well, another year has passed and I’m sure that you all will agree that it has been a quick one. As you get older the weeks, months and years seem to fly by and 2017 has been a good year for Historic Hamilton.

We have seen over 1,000 new readers like our page and our website is now live. We have reunited many old friends and even put family members back in contact with each other. I am especially proud that we are reaching out to countries all over the world and some of our most viewed stories are read in Canada, Australia, USA and not to mention the many countries across Europe.

We would like to say thanks to everyone who has sent us your pictures and stories over the past 12 months and not to mention our two resident poets Hugh and Kit, they both take us on a nostalgic trip down memory lane with their words. I would also like to say thanks to everyone who has contributed to Historic Hamilton in the past 12 months, there are too many to mention but people like Paul Veverka and Wilma Bolton, you both have given me great advice and as always, it’s really appreciated.

When we post a story, we enjoy reading through all your comments, the old stories of Hamilton are locked in your memory and when a picture triggers that memory you share it with us and we document it.

So, as I write the last post on Historic Hamilton for 2017, I would like to wish all our readers a Happy & prosperous New Year and here is to 2018. Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book, Write a good one!
