Liberal MPP Jim Brownell was present to say a few words of tribute along with Cornwall City Councilor Glen Grant and former teacher and contemporary of Ms MacLeod Roberts; Verna Levere.   It’s a true testament to the area’s commitment to Arts and Culture, and to a teacher still remembered for touching so many lives so many years after she has passed.
