New King headquarters well underway

 Photo by Barry Wallace
To open in late 2018
My inquiry to the township about the opening date of King's new headquarters resulted in a hopeful time of around Christmas, this year, but it could also be early 2019.

Old museum space gutted...

Photos by Barry Wallace

The inside of the old portion of the King Museum is seen here, after being gutted in preparation for a complete makeover of the space for future artifact display and event staging.
The original building was the historic Kinghorn schoolhouse.  Completion is expected to take place at the end June. 

This blog entry is my first in about four months after having undergone cataract surgery, which really limited my photographic pursuits.   It's nice to be back and I hope to share many more views of our beautiful and green King Township.

Over the world, and behold,
Everything is softer
and more beautiful.

Trumpeter Swans near Glenville Pond

 Photos by Barry Wallace
Five adults and five first-year young swans
These wonderful birds are all tagged and are part of a private breeding program close to Newmarket, but in King Township.   10 of the huge swans are the most I have ever seen at this location.   It is an inspiring sight.   Native to North America, Cygnus buccinator is the largest swan in the world with a wingspan that may exceed three metres (10 ft.).
