Lanark County Calendar


In her fourth book, author, Arlene Stafford-Wilson invites us to spend the year with her as she transports us back to the family farm in Eastern Ontario in the 1960s and 1970s.  Join her in the magical weeks leading up to Christmas, in rural Bathurst Township.  Spend the early days of spring with her as she gathers sap for maple syrup season.  Escape into the long, hot summer days of childhood, stroll down country lanes, and join in the harvest.  Share the excitement of the annual Perth Fair, and come along as the Lanark County maple trees show off their spectacular autumn colours.  Experience the changing seasons on the Third Line: winter, spring, summer and fall, in this Lanark County Calendar.
