Taylor Family Business- where the Blossom Shop now stands- Photo —Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum ( look at the side steps to the town hall that are not there anymore)
Jayne Munro Ouimet, president of the Lanark County Genealogical Society told me about the Hare Krishna coming to Carleton Place.
“One of the locals who lives in our complex recalls the Hare Krishna events. They stood and chanted in front of where the Blossom Flower shop was on Bridge Street in Carleton Place. She thinks it would have been 1973 or 1974 so, as it was just before I moved to Toronto”.
So I have written about The Children of God and all the hippies in Carleton Place. Who can tell me any stories about the Hare Krishna coming to Carleton Place. PM me here or leave notes in the comment section or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
