Prac­tices con­tinue for Liv­ing Christ­mas Tree

The Amherst News - - CUMBERLAND COUNTY - Gail Wagstaff Port Gre­ville Gail Wa­gastaff writes for the Port Gre­ville area for the Amherst News.

The flu clinic put on by the Shore Drive Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion went very well with many peo­ple at­tend­ing.

Al­though there is still some de­bate about get­ting a flu shot, it seems the very young and the el­derly ben­e­fit most from such shots, as well as those with chronic ill­nesses.

Prac­tices are on­go­ing for the Liv­ing Christ­mas Tree per­for­mance

(Mon­day evenings, I be­lieve). If you are in­ter­ested in be­com­ing a “branch” of the tree, I am sure you would be most wel­come to join.

The Re­mem­brance Day church ser­vice will be held at Holy Trin­ity Angli­can Church in Fox River at 2 p.m. on Sun­day, Nov. 11. Wreath lay­ing will fol­low at the war memo­rial site, un­less it is ex­tremely cold or snow­ing, which would re­sult in the gath­er­ing tak­ing place at the church.

Sand­wiches, sweets will be avail­able at the FPW fire hall fol­low­ing the wreath-lay­ing cer­e­mony. If you wish to lay a wreath, please call or mes­sage Gail Wagstaff no later than Thurs­day, Nov. 8.

If you have any items of win­ter cloth­ing in good con­di­tion that you no longer need, please con­sider donat­ing to the Shop My Closet event, which is hosted by the Shore Drive As­so­ci­a­tion.

Items can be dropped off at Barb Aris’s or Sharon Ben­jamin’s up to the af­ter­noon of Nov. 14. Peo­ple are wel­come to at­tend the event on Thurs­day, Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon. Jack­ets, coats, sweaters, boots and more will be avail­able, free of cost.

Our weather has been quite chilly. Soon, the ground will be white and thoughts will turn to­wards ski­ing, snow­shoe­ing, snow­mo­bil­ing, shov­el­ling, win­ter driv­ing, and Christ­mas!
