Dungannon and St. Helen’s news
Menno Mi l l e r has 22 horses, a number of pigs and five turkeys. Lots of chores to be done everyday.
The Maitland and Nine Mile Rivers are now closed to trout and salmon fishing. They will re-open the fourth Saturday in April.
Chri s t m a s and New Year’s are over for another year. Joan took down all our outside lights on Dec. 30. Shortly after I noticed that many of our neighbours were also shutting theirs off. There is still no news of the winner of the Dungannon Christmas lights contest. The Auburn Lions Club give prizes of $ 50 for first place, $ 30 for second and $ 20 for third, so I have been told. Dungannon gives one $50.
I noticed Jake and Brett Alton are out playing street hockey in their laneway. Very cold and windy today.
We haven’t had much snow for the last month so our snow removal man, Ralph Nivens, has had a real holiday.
It would be nice if we had a restaurant and general store in the village. When we had the restaurant, for 2 and 1/2 years Iwent almost every morning for breakfast and to visit with the neighbours. A store would be great so we wouldn’t have to go to town for everything. Sure do miss Dawson’s.
The weather report sys we are in for some rain on the 10th and 11th. Not good for the snowmobile trails.
