History of Maryhill


Maryhill is a small Canadian hamlet in Ontario near Guelph. Its main feature is the gothic St. Boniface Roman Catholic Church built in the late 1870s, which is visible from miles around. At its side is a cemetery with dozens of old stones, an iron gate, and a stone wall. Across the street is St. Boniface Catholic School and an original homestead, both from the same era. A newspaper writer from Kitchener once wrote that if residents in Ontario can't afford to go to Europe, they should go to Maryhill.[citation needed]

The name "Maryhill" is derived from a statue of "Mary" Magdalene at the base of St. Boniface Church, which is on a small "hill" — Maryhill. Maryhill was renamed after World War II because its former name, New Germany, was no longer politically acceptable. At the base of the same hill are two former hotels built in the mid 1800s. One is white, was a former stage coach stop, and is now a bed and breakfast. The other is red and is named the Commercial Tavern. The Commercial was once the site of many up and coming rock acts but was in the late 1990s converted into a country music bar. It has an ornate copper ceiling and a storied past.

Hall of Fame
Gordie Tapp

Gordie Tapp

  • Inducted into the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame in 1990
  • Birth: London, ON, June 4, 1922
  • Background:

    If laughter is the best medicine, Gordie Tapp has cured more country music enthusiasts than anyone else in the history of Canada. Tapp has always been an impersonator and a comedian. Starting off with a stint in army uniform from 1942 - 1946 on the 'Army Show', Tapp moved into radio before breaking into the television medium.

    A founding member of Main Street Jamboree radio/TV show out of Hamilton, ON, where he created the character "Gaylord". His 1980 album, Both Sides, featured both his comedic and singing talents.

    By the time Tapp joined 'Country Hoedown', the predecessor to 'The Tommy Hunter Show', his well known character 'Cousin Clem' had long been a part of his repertoire, although no one would have believed the popularity and fame the character would gain when Tapp took it onto 'Hee Haw', leading Tapp into international stardom.

    While Gordie Tapp's gift of laughter is uniquely country, his gentle sense of humour is known as being uniquely Canadian. He is the recipient of the Order of Canada and Order of Ontario. In 2007, Gordie released his autobiography, "What's On Tap".

    A Little History On Paul Weber

    Paul Weber has been singing country music since childhood, cutting his teeth in a family band headed up by his late father, Howard 'Smoky' Weber, a popular singer on the S/W Ontario circuit at the time.

    In his teen years Paul formed his own band to play local venues, and would later join up to become a member of Joe Firth's tour band The Promised Land, which also featured Paul's brother Mike Weber, a gifted steel guitarist. After an 8-year stint with Joe Firth, who Paul considers to be a mentor, he again formed his own Top Hand Band, and toured across Canada throughout the 1980's.

    In addition to the Two Bits Worth Of Hurtin' (1981) and the Whiskey Tears (1983) albums, Paul Weber also released the 1991 CD Older & Wiser (Cardinal Records); and was part of the 1985 family album, The Webers – Together.

    Paul left the hard life on the road in 1997 and purchased the Commercial Tavern in Maryhill, Ontario, determined to build a first-class establishment providing entertainment true to the authentic style of country music which he has performed throughout his life.

    Halloween Safety Tips

    Ghost, ghouls and monsters aren't the only things to be afraid of on Halloween. Accidents and mishaps increase dramatically when children trick-or-treat.

    To avoid the many dangers children face while trick or treating, use common sense. Be aware of potential Halloween hazards and take precautions to eliminate them. Consider heading for an indoor Halloween party and bypass any chaos or danger.

    Halloween Costume Safety

    • Wear flame retardant costumes.
    • Make sure your Halloween costume is colorfast so the color doesn't run onto your other clothes if it rains.
    • Try on costumes before Halloween to allow time for altering.
    • Hem your costumes so you don't trip and fall.
    • Apply reflective tape to your Halloween costumes.
    • Avoid cumbersome masks. Use make-up instead.
    • Use only hypoallergenic and non-toxic makeup.
    • Wear comfortable, practical shoes.
    • Double tie your shoelaces so you don't trip.
    • Keep your costume and wig away from candles.
    • Don't carry fake swords, guns, knives or similar accessories that look authentic. Make sure they're flexible and cannot harm anyone
