Bur­sary to be given in mem­ory of Coates

The Citizen-Record (Cumberland) - - COMMUNITY - Gail Wagstaff

The weather has been un­usu­ally cold for this time of the year. I am hope­ful that the last few weeks of June will be much warmer and more sea­son­able.

I am en­joy­ing the Stan­ley Cup Play­offs and Ma­jor League Base­ball, as al­ways.

If you are in­ter­ested in Chair Tai Chi (low im­pact/gen­tle ex­er­cise) it is be­ing held on Fri­day, June 9, at the FPW Fire Hall. I be­lieve this will ex­tend for 18 weeks. Please call Sharon at 902-348-2105 or Barb at 902348-2939 for more in­for­ma­tion.

The Shore Drive Com­mu­nity De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion presents a $200 bur­sary to any grad­u­ates from Whar­ton to Brookville who go on to fur­ther their ed­u­ca­tion at univer­sity or com­mu­nity col­lege. From this point for­ward, the as­so­ci­a­tion will be pre­sent­ing this bur­sary in mem­ory and in hon­our of Gordie Coates, who for many years con­tributed so much to im­prov­ing and en­hanc­ing the qual­ity of life for all res­i­dents in this area.

Call Barb at 902-348-2939 for more in­for­ma­tion on a cake dec­o­rat­ing work­shop sched­uled for Thurs­day, July 13, at the FPW Fire Hall.

Soon the Shore Drive as­so­ci­a­tion will be an­nounc­ing the date for a beach walk in the West Bay area, led by Dick MacAl­lis­ter, a sum­mer res­i­dent. Stay tuned for more de­tails.

Sharon Ben­jamin has cre­ated a beau­ti­ful quilt to hon­our and rep­re­sent the Canada 150 cel­e­bra­tion. Soon, tick­ets will be avail­able for a raf­fle of this unique and beau­ti­ful keep­sake.

The Foxy Lady is out of news for now. Have a great week, ev­ery­one.
