READ ALL ABOUT IT
Kudos to the local library society for their plans to help everyone enjoy Canada 150, with their goal to do enough fundraising to pay for Public Library memberships for the entire population of our town, for one year.
Noted golfer Linda Traquair, who also doubles as chairman of the Society, told us that they are planning an evening for ticket holders to enjoy some friendship, appetizers, maybe a refreshment or two, plus a chance to bid on many attractive items donated by local merchants, to be sold at both a live and silent auction. It's on Saturday, March 11, at the Library.
Watched a bit of the Oscars Night on Sunday, and even caught the fiasco when actress Faye Dunaway read the name off the wrong envelope, for the Best
Picture award. She and fellow actor Warren Beatty were handed the wrong envelope, but it was upsetting to see La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz literally rip the envelope out of Beatty's hand, admitting a mistake had happened. Other than that unfortunate mishap, we thought the show was well done, and well formatted. We also thought the media overplayed the issue of the wrong envelope.
Condolences to Ken Hudgeon's family on his recent passing. He was a pretty talented man and his projects were well thought out and equally well executed, with all kinds of unique vehicles on the go.
We'll miss him around town. Rest easy old friend.
