Last week, Danielle MacNeil wrote a poem in response to a negative post about our city she had seen on Facebook. The poem, based on the famous scribbling “It was the night before Christmas”, written in 1823 by Clement Clarke Moore, shines a positive light on some of the many fabulous downtown shopping options available to the population.
A Local Print Broker, VersaCore Tech Designs, prompted by Louise Gendron, Owner of Downtown’s Studio 101, teamed up with Danielle and produced shirts available for purchase just in time for the season. Shirts are a great way to show your local pride, and $5 from each shirt will be donated to Maison Baldwin.
“Of course, we are aware that not all the wonderful downtown businesses are mentioned in the poem”, said Julia Lucio, owner at VersaCore, “but the point was to simply show people how lucky we are to HAVE so much, and more, to choose from in Cornwall. It’s a beautiful thing! There are way too many options to fit on one shirt! VersaCore will be happy to customize shirts to reflect ANY of the local businesses, downtown or not, at any company’s request.”
