House Burns while Fire­men Look On

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEF - Made­line Mul­hol­land Stanstead

On Sun­day, May 15th, many lo­cal res­i­dents could smell smoke hang­ing in the damp air. It was nei­ther a bar­beque nor a wood­stove, but an aban­doned house and barn set ablaze by lo­cal fire­fight­ers. The burn­ing ex­er­cises were car­ried out through­out the day, cul­mi­nat­ing in the de­struc­tion of both struc­tures by late af­ter­noon. Fire­fight­ers uti­lized the aban­doned struc­tures to carry out train­ing ex­er­cises.

The fire­fight­ers were able to try out this lad­der truck which is on loan from Alabama. Golf

The first ETIAC golf tour­na­ment was the Stanstead Col­lege tour­na­ment which took place in Cowansville on May 3rd. The tour­na­ment was stopped af­ter nine holes due to cold and very wet weather. The low gross for that tour­na­ment was Will Cam­ber from Alexan­der Galt. The sec­ond was the Rich­mond Re­gional and was held at the Or­ford golf club on May 11th. Will Cam­ber and Char­lie Ray­mond (Rich­mond Re­gional) both shot 81 for a tie for low gross af­ter reg­u­la­tion, but Will Cam­ber ea­gled the first play-off hole while Char­lie made a par giv­ing Will the low gross tro­phy. Stanstead Col­lege has con­tin­ued their strong play with wins at both tour­na­ments. Tour­na­ment num­ber three, the AGRHS tour­na­ment, was held on Fri­day, May 13th at the Old Len­noxville Golf Course – re­sults should be avail­able next week. Bishop’s Col­lege School will host a tour­na­ment on May 17th at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf Club and the fi­nals will be held on May 31st at Rich­mondMel­bourne. Rugby
