At last week’s council meeting, Lanark County warden Bill Dobson acknowledged artist Franc VanOort and graphic designer Annie Dalton, both of Tay Valley Township, for their contributions to the county’s Legacy Cottage Program.

As part of its Canada 150 celebrations, the county is honouring families who have been cottaging here for 50 years or more by presenting them with a Legacy Cottage plaque.

The plaques were designed by Dalton and includes an etching by VanOort.

As we have reported in the past, the plaques have the number of years the cottage has been in the family and are personalized with the cottage or family name.

VanOort received his own plaque and a certificate to recognize his donation of art for the program, and Dalton will receive a gift to thank her for completing the design at no cost.

More than 200 applications for plaques were received.
