In 2016, the town of Warden, a small village of about 350 people located in Shefford, turned a century old and the town council wanted to do something special to celebrate it’s 100th anniversary. Holding a mechoui was the main idea put forward but one man believed that this was not enough. “You eat, you go to the bathroom, you leave, and it’s forgotten,” explained Paul Sicard, who grew up in the Townships, “I came up with the idea of having a time capsule.” Mr. Sicard is a man of many talents. He is a graphic designer, he runs his own graphic design company in Montreal called Jack of Arts, he’s a cartoonist, a writer, and he even dabbles in photography from time to time. But beyond that, he is a man with a passion for the town with a lot of historical value that holds a very special place in his heart. See full story in the Tuesday, Aug. 27 edition of The Record.
