Many of the Ramsay residents I’ve spoken to over the last week were not able to make it out last Wednesday to the Dominion Bridge event that New Urban put together at the hall.

Marilyn Williams along with the Ramsay Heritage Committee and Ramsay residents worked together in 2012 to created a Ramsay Historical Context Paper.
