Square Brew Christmas Night Markets
November 18, Dec. 2 and Dec. 16 from 5-9pm

Looking for that really unique Christmas gift? We will be selling products made from the wood reclaimed from the Siddall Fish Shack at the Square Brew Christmas Night Markets on November 18, Dec. 2 and Dec. 16 from 5-9pm.

We will have our really awesome Bird Houses Photo Frames, Pride Flags and a few other items on sale. We reclaimed the wood from the shack when it was destroyed by a train wreck in spring 2021. We wanted to honour the hospital’s relationship to the lake and the history of our fishermen. The Siddall Fish Shack was the last remaining shack and was a designated historical building. We connected with some local artists and had birdhouses, picture frames and signs made from the wood.

You can own a little piece of the history of Goderich and support your local hospital at the same time. And give a really thoughtful and meaningful gift to someone! Drop in and see us.
