Those were just some of the options, as hundreds of people took advantage, getting a closer look at some of the more interesting places in the community.”
Dr. Hugh Langley/ Primary Care Lead, Kingston General Hospital:
“I think it’s a great way to see Kingston, I think there is over 27 places to see. And if I wasn’t here all day, I think I would be at the police station looking around there”
Kingston Police was just one of the participants involved in the event… saying it’s a great opportunity for the public to see what they do.
Cst. Kim Siemonsen/Kingston Police Force:
“We really like to engage with the community at different events and this was the perfect opportunity to let them see what we have to offer, and where our workplace is.”
But they weren’t the only ones providing entertainment…
Roy Young/President, Kingston Theatre Organ Society:
“We opened up the big theatre organ here, which is the largest theatre organ in Canada.
So, we play silent movies during the day, entertain anybody that comes in and out, and make sure they know where the rest of the venues are around town.”
While others are hoping to save more lives by doing this.
Dr. Hugh Langley:
“When epople come and see the hospital and see the Cancer centre, it takes away a bit of the fear and perhaps helps people decide to go get tested.”
The event was deemed a success and comes highly recommended by many.
“It’s a great way to get out to the public and an opportunity for people see things they’ve never seen or will never get to see.”
If you missed this year’s tour, don’t worry, there is always next year, which is sure to be even bigger and better.
