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.
