County gets creative with celebration of all things local

by Janet Richards, The Community Press, October 29, 2009 Madoc Township – Local fare was on the menu at the first Creative Hastings dinner in Eldorado. The Oct. 20 event organized by Harvest Hastings attracted about 120 people who shared in a meal featuring local food, entertainment by the Lazy John Band and an update on the local creative economy.

Louise Livingstone of Harvest Hastings called the event a “celebration“. The main purpose is to get everybody together to celebrate what we’re going in Hastings County,” Livingstone said. “It’s a time of year to celebrate what’s happening in the area.”
