    Sunday August 23, 2015 - 13:00 pm — Wellington County Museum and Archives - Elora
    As Dufferin County woodturner Jim Lorriman has discovered, even the most derelict and abandoned remnants of objects and buildings has a story to tell. Jim digs a little deeper for the history by identifying the woods and how they were first used, counting rings to determine age and tracing their 'roots', and researching the stories.  Through his skills as a woodturner, Jim brings out the original beauty of these woods in exquisite platters, chargers and bowls, each with its story written on the back. Please come out to meet Jim on Sunday, August 23 at the Antique and Classic Car Show at WCMA from 1:00 to 5:00 pm Admission is $5.00 per person or $12.50 per family. The exhibit is on display until December 6. The Wellington County Museum and Archives is located on Wellington Road 18 between Fergus and Elora.  The Galleries are open weekdays from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, and on weekends from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. Admission is by donation (except on special events).
