Located in Milan, this cottage was the location of much-needed services for many years. What was located here? What is the address? Poem by Edwin Markham

Reader’s Notes~

Ossie Stippa included these lines on his sketch:

There is a destiny that makes us brothers: 
None goes his way alone:
All that we send into the lives of others
Comes back into our own.
I care not what his temples or his creeds,
One thing holds firm and fast
That into his fateful heap of days and deeds
The soul of man is cast.

Markham, Edwin. "A Creed to Mr. David Lubin".

Environmental Sustainability

In this day where our focus is the “pursuit of global environmental sustainability”, it is timely to read Hortense Joyce’s quote and her entire column below.

Let’s all resolve, as the snow starts to melt and the beauty of spring begins to abound, to do our part toward to helping to keep at least one section of this country, the town of Milan, clean and beautiful.

Joyce, Hortense. “The Milan Community News”. Vol.2 Issue 4. February 1970.
