Fire department hosting Field Day on Aug. 5
because you need to be honest with others. You have to be able to tell others that you have stretched yourself too thinly, and you need to begin taking better care of yourself if you are to be any good at all to anyone.
It means communicating to others that you may not always be available, or be able to do, say or be what they want. Those who truly care about you will understand. Those who do not understand, and still expect you to put them first, are not healthy for you. If they step out of your life because you are not constantly at their beck and call, maybe that is not such a bad thing.
The FPW Fire Department will be holding its annual Field Day on Saturday, Aug. 5. Come over and enjoy: the parade beginning in Fox River at noon, children’s games, on-site music, chicken barbecue dinner, ticket raffles, horseshoes, canteen and socializing with old and new friends.
Make sure you buy a ticket on the barbecue and special Canada 150 quilt made by Sharon Benjamin for the Shore Drive Community Development Association.
Another special event will take place on the same day. The Age of Sail Museum will celebrate Canada 150 by holding Scott’s Timber Show on site. There will be two performances at 2 and 4 p.m. Admission is free and there will be a barbecue and cafe during the afternoon.
July has been a nice month with hot, sunny days. Substantial rain is needed to fill the wells and reduce the fire hazard.
Our summer is flying by as it always does. Make certain you enjoy the warmth and the community events in your area.
The Foxy Lady is out of news for now. Have a great week, everyone.
