An interesting mosaic on the former Christ Church in Hillier, Prince Edward County, Ontario, has received recognition by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA). Al Anthony Roofing of Consecon, ON, was granted an honorable mention in ARMA’s annual Quality Asphalt Roofing Case-study (QARC) Awards for its installation. The mosaic was designed by Helga Boelen and inspired by the Hospice de Beaune in Burgundy. The church, built circa 1840, was reconstructed in 1947 following a lightning strike and served the community until 1969. It was moved in 2006 from 2 kilometers away to the vineyards of the Closson Chase Winery, where it now serves as housing for winery workers.
