During a recent walk, I noticed that a portion of the fencing around Colonial Lake during renovation had been removed. I sat on one of the new benches to check out the quality of the work that had been done. I smiled when I looked up and saw the profile of the Sergeant Jasper building. I have been looking at that building for over 50 years, and with downtown residents’ attitudes, the building will be there for the next 50 years. What a relief that some things never change.
