Dr. Robertson in the news

This weekend is the big Doors Open annual event, where places not usually open to the public in Fergus and Elora will open their doors Saturday, June 18th, from 10am - 4pm.  This year has a medical theme and while we are not opening our B&B this time (we still have so much to learn!), we were blessed to have Janice and Katie Anderson interviewed here by Francis Baker for the Fergus Elora News Express, June 8, 2016, issue.

It was fascinating to hear about polio in the 1930s and the care and treatment Dr. Robertson gave to Janice's mother, Dorothy Hosking.  Katie, who works at the Archives, was able to supply excellent details which really gave the personal experience a fuller context.  
  Thank you so much to Elizabeth Bender, Cultural Coordinator for Tourist Information Services, for arranging our virtual meeting and getting this all underway!  And thank you to Janice, Katie and Francis for allowing us to supply the physical space for this interview.
