We invite you to view the opening few minutes of Gary Kaulback's "On the Mountain" video. The inspiration for this project sprang from Gary's memories of the Millionaire Drive Inn which was in full swing when he was young. That nostalgic memory prompted him to undertake a monumental video project that will serve as an inspiration to our whole Mountain community. We invite you to take a few minutes to watch the opening scenes of his project and we think that you will decide that you want to watch all 50 minutes of the complete DVD.
We believe that Gary Kaulback's new video "On the Mountain" does a wonderful job of capturing the essence of the Hamilton Mountain. It has received enthusiastic comments and reviews and was even short listed for a Governor General's Local History Award in 2011. It tells the story of how our community began and identifies the things that make it a great place to live. It presents the history of the Mountain - but in such an engaging way that even those not much interested in history will be captivated. It is a great DVD for families to watch together and it will definitely inspire older residents of the Mountain to trade many "Remember When" stories. "On the Mountain" will also enable newer Mountain residents to connect with the roots of their Mountain community.
The "Mountain News", Hamilton Mountain's own weekly newspaper, recently conducted an interview with Gary and we want to share what the Mountain News had to say about Gary and his video project.
In his conversation and in his videography Gary demonstrates a great love for Hamilton. The "On the Mountain" project was an expression of his own personal conviction that the Mountain deserved to be more widely celebrated and appreciated. That sentiment is further reflected in Gary's choice to donate a portion of the proceeds of the sale of each video to local heritage projects.
