Beautifully etched with historical reference, the plaque which rests beside the base of the statue of Shelburne's Founding Father, William Jelly poignantly reflects Shelburne's Town Hall as the sun sets.

When Ontario's Lieutenant Governor, the Honorable David Onley addressed Shelburne residents during the unveiling of the William Jelly statue, the crowd went silent with his words of historical value and nostalgic reminding of just how great Shelburne is and how much it has grown since William Jelly imagined what Shelburne might become. Standing dutifully on guard behind Onley, retired Fire Marshall now Aide-de-Camp to the Lieutenant Governor, B.A. Gougeon.
