IT’S TIME TO CELEBRATE!

The Huron Manufacturing Association (HMA) is inviting all manufacturers, businesses, and supporters to its 2017 Awards of Excellence Gala at the South Huron Recreational Centre on Thursday, November 16, 2017.  Founded in 1998, the HMA recognized the need for greater awareness, community support and further growth of Huron County’s manufacturing sector.  The Awards of Excellence Gala provides a platform to share new product developments, accomplishments, and milestones with peers in the manufacturing community.

“The Awards of Excellence Gala is the right time and place to honour Huron County Manufacturers for all their accomplishments”, said Joan Wood, Gala Coordinator (and local manufacturer).

“We invite you to enjoy a delicious meal, featuring locally produced wine and learn more about the amazing collection of local manufacturers.”

Preceding the Gala, the HMA hosts a Trade Show for attendees to get ‘hands-on’ with products manufactured in the county.  Tickets for the HMA 2017 Awards of Excellence Gala are $45.00.  For more information about the Gala visit the HMA website or call the office (519) 527-0305 and ask for Administrator Lisa Houthuyzen or HMA Director Jan Hawley at 519.525.7677.

Life’s Precious Moments

7 Halifax Street, Vanastra, Ontario N0M 1L0  ●  Telephone (519) 440-1537

The Village of Vanastra gains momentum as another business opens its doors.

Diane Proper’s photography has come a long way.  From kitten photos she took as a child with a small plastic camera to on-site innovative shoots and the studio she recently opened, this lifelong photographer has pursued her love of the lens and all it can create.

In 2009, her photo venture (and adventure) was established as a mobile business and by 2017, it had grown to needing a dedicated space that would accommodate the varied tastes of her clients.  Whether it be for a newborn baby, a beloved pet, a happy family, or an anniversary couple, Diane develops a setting that fits. 

And this dedicated photog is sure to capture the essence of that extra-special event—your wedding day, with all its happiness, its remarkable moments.  And wedding packages include an engagement shoot.

Getting to know her pictorial subjects beforehand allows Diane to make the most of time with the bride and groom, to recognize what works for them, and to match their personalities to the finished product.  It’s all about advance planning, even for the photographer.


Life’s Precious Moments is also able to provide photo restoration.  Those old pictures which have faded or lost their depth can be expertly restored either in black and white or sepia.  Diane’s deft touch with computer software brings those photos into focus again, gives them new life that evokes memories of the past and renews the warm smiles of loved ones.

In addition, her studio regularly hosts exceptional photo events, such as pet day and kids costume picture parties.  Diane can produce slide shows, collages, and offers business services as well.

In addition to all of the above, it is the mission of Life’s Precious Moments to provide high quality personal service at affordable prices.

A wonderful opportunity to not only record today, but also to leave behind photographic memoirs for the future!
