Changes, Changes, Changes in Grand Bend


Sanders bites the dust as crews begin tearing down this famous Grand Bend Landmark on the Beach.
Monetta Menards before that Sanders comes down to make way for 6 new condos to be built this Fall.
Other changes in Town have the former Finnegans being replaced by Archies Sugar Shack. The former Grapevine/Coconut Bay is now Grandpa Jimmy's Scottish Bakery.
The Greek is now Paddington's Pub and we're anxiously awaiting the opening of The Pirates Eatery on River Road down by the Harbour where Capt Nemos was. Purdy's Landing beside that has three new artist studios who have just opened including a revamped River Road Gallery.

How sad. I remember going there back in the 50's. Time marches on.

Does Monettas ghost haunt the old Sanders restaurant??? I've heard rumours.
