It is hard to imagine but the school March break is just around the bend and so is spring hopefully.

The camp will run from March 16-20, daily from 9 to 4. If you are interested you should be contacting the studio ASAP in order to register.

It may be a bit early but by the time this event comes around you might be glad that you were an “early bird.” The Businessmen’s Bonspiel will be held on Saturday, April 4, in Maxville. Organizers are wel- coming all ladies and gentlemen -- seasoned or unseasoned to the sport. Walter McIntosh wants to inform all that the name should not mislead you. If you like to curl or even better can round up a team of four people, please do contact Walter at 613-528 4694.
Lyma and Walter McIntosh had the pleasure of having daughter, Jenna, husband, Adam, and grandson, George, visit recently. While Adam returned home to Cambridge, Jenna and George enjoyed more time with the proud grandparents. Lyma and Walter safely returned Jenna and George back to Adam who was anxiously waiting in Cambridge.
The Knights of Columbus Council 9435 of Green Valley held their breakfast brunch on Sunday with a very good turnout.
At around noon, Father Poirier was asked to draw the winning tickets for the grocery draws. The lucky first prize winner was Yvon Menard, of Green Valley, who won $1,000 of groceries, the second prize winner was Julie Theriault, also of Green Valley, who won the $300 of groceries and the third winner was Michel Constant, also of Green Valley, who won $200 of groceries. Ron Lajoie handed out the prizes to the winners, and will see that the winners not present receive their prizes.
A big thank you to all who came out for the breakfast, to Mrs. Dashney and her staff for the delicious food, to the Knights who organized the event and to all who sold and bought tickets. Maybe an event for next year.

So upon being a little nosy I visited the residence on Sunday to find out what the commotion had been. It seems burned toast was the cause of alarm, but nobody was hurt and that is the major concern. Everything was back to normal on Sunday, with members having lunch when I stopped in.
That is how I feel with this cold snap. When oh when will it leave? I spoke with Yvon Menard on Sunday morning and he was telling me that he had got some news from friends down in Florida and it was cold there too, maybe, but not as much as here. I would still rather be down there than here. What about you? I’m sure that skiers, those who ice fish, those who snowmobile, and the ones who love winter are enjoying themselves. Let’s hope for warmer weather real soon.
That’s all for this week, so God bless and have a safe week.
