Almonte unveils a statue of James Naismith, inventor of basketball (video & photos)

Thanks to Ryan Guthrie who shot these photos and video at yesterday's unveiling of the James Naismith statue in Almonte.  Naismith was born in Almonte in 1861 and invented basketball in 1891. (Great video and great job by Almonte with the unveiling -- I love the James Naismith puppet.)
