March break

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.

More in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at www.ger­aldswift.com

Curl­ing bon­spiel

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.

False alarm

were parked out­side the Val­ley Gar­den Re­tire­ment Cen­tre in Green Val­ley.

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.
