WW2 soldier Jack Collis remembered... page 3 Wednesday, $1.43+HST $150 July 17, 2019 Hands of time being replaced The clock tower at Main and Market Streets dominates the streetscape of downtown Port Dover in every direction. The clock was installed in July of 1906 -- 113 years ago this month. The clock wasn’t ready for the July 1st celebration of 1906 and so the company reduced its price to $715 from the contract price of $740. The century old mechanism is now maintained by volunteer Richard Dupp of Port Dover, at left. A few years ago, Richard noticed the clock’s wooden hands were deteriorating and got Tim Warris of Port Dover, at right, and his specialized equipment at Fast Tracks Hobbyworks involved in the project to make new aluminum hands that should last forever. See full story about the clock inside on pages 12 and 13.

Members of the group hail from both Norfolk and Brant counties, with a few from the Oxford and Hamilton area. Their line-up boasts fiddles, guitars, ukuleles, reeds, banjo, accordions, and bass. The orchestra will be joined by local folk duo Mike & Pat -- featuring Mike Hogg on the guitar vo- cals and harmonica, and Patrick Campbell with gui- tar and vocals.
