An update on the List of Gananoque Mayors

This project is progressing slowly as finding the information has been more challenging than one might expect. I should be moving most of it to a page here on the site soon however.

Why a page that lists the Mayors of Gananoque?
Simple answer. I looked for the information online and found nowhere with even most of the information. I asked at the library and at Town Hall, no one was aware of a list of Mayors. The town does have labelled pictures of many of the Mayors, as you can see in the photos below.
