Stanstead Journal - - HAPPENINGS - Ayer's Cliff

It is that time of year again, sum­mer is al­most over, the kids are back in school and The Ayer's Cliff Fifty Plus met for their fall meet­ing in Beu­lah United Church hall on Septem­ber 6th af­ter en­joy­ing many beau­ti­ful days filled with sun­shine. Our pres­i­dent Linda Grenon cheer­fully wel­comed ev­ery­one back. We had four guests join­ing us, Jim Mackay, Tina Linde, Deb­bie Mosher and Mau­rice Roy. Sym­pa­thy cards were signed and Linda ex­pressed her heart­felt con­do­lences to Jean Cass in the loss of her hus­band Jamie Noyes, to Mary Levasseur in the loss of her com­pan­ion J.R. Coulombe and to Sandra Dezan in the loss of her daugh­ter in law Jo­hanne Deboer, and to the fam- ily of Mar­garet Luce. Life is short my friends, Make the best of ev­ery­day. Our Cindy was back in the kitchen serv­ing up a de­li­cious meal of meat­loaf, mashed pota­toes, car­rots/turnip, beets and salad. Jean Cass had made and dec­o­rated a pretty cake with fall colours of leaves and flow­ers. Rev. Lee Ann Hogle gave the Bless­ing. Then the ta­ble num­bers were drawn. Forty six mem­bers and four guests sat down to en­joy this scrump­tious meal. The Happy Birth­day song was played and sung to May Cun­ning­ton, Mar­garet Gil­lam Shirley Des­ruis­seaux and Jackie Til­ton. The birth­day cake was cut and served with ice cream by May Cun­ning­ton and Mel Dustin. Linda as usual got in a few good jokes, mak­ing us laugh. It was our medicine for the day. The Half and Half was won by Casey Vriesendorp, Lloyd Smith and Jean Cass. Door Prizes went to the man with a horse­shoe in his pocket, Lloyd Smith. Also Joan Buc­canan, El­iz­a­beth Red­path, Norman Win­tle, Mar­garet Gil­lam, Linda Grenon, Mary Levasseur and Wel­don Dustin. Con­grat­u­la­tions to ev­ery­one. Linda con­tin­ued with a col­lec­tion of jokes, which in­volved a Blonde telling a Smart Blonde joke. You just never know where these jokes are com­ing from. Our Spe­cial Guests for the af­ter­noon were Deb­bie Mosher and Mau­rice Roy. Deb­bie brought along her paints and sup­plies and with the help of her hus­band Mau­rice, gave about twenty of us an art les­son. We painted pretty sun­flow­ers on a white mug or plate. There were many lovely artis­tic de­signs. We brought these trea­sur­ers home to set for a while be­fore bak­ing them to set the glaze. Then they will be ready to use for a de­li­cious snack or cof­fee. Thank you Deb­bie and Mau­rice. We all en­joyed our art les­son. Thank You to our clean-up crew, the dish wash­ers and those who brought in door prizes. Phyl­lis Dustin Sec­re­tary ETHEL (DAVIS) BLISS
