A re­minder that our Win­ter Car­ni­val in Glen Robert­son is Satur­day, Feb. 20. The draw for two hockey tick­ets will take place that evening at the recre­ation cen­tre so if you want to win, pick up your tick­ets. They are avail­able at The Glen Road House, Glen­garry Tire and from all com­mit­tee mem­bers. The game is Feb. 27 -- Mon­tréal vs. Toronto (Sec­tion 109).

Our up­com­ing March ac­tiv­i­ties are the fol­low­ing: Spaghetti Jam­boree Satur­day, March 5. The ben­e­fits reaped from the Spaghetti Sup­per will help to buy a nat­u­ral gas fur­nace for our church in The Glen. Also The World Day of Prayer 2016 is slated for early March. More de­tails on the up­com­ing events will fol­low shortly.

De­spite the er­ror on the date and the lack of snow, the An­tique Snow­mo­bile Day this past Satur­day in Ste- Jus­tine turned out to be a suc­cess with close to 200 snow­mo­biles on dis­play. Ap­par­ently, a lot of fun was had and ended with a big bon­fire on Con­ces­sion 10.

I would also like to re­mind you that the month of Fe­bru­ary is a fund- rais­ing month for the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion of On­tario. I have been asked to vol­un­teer in or­der to help raise funds for the foun­da­tion.

If any­one would like to do­nate, please just give me a call and I will be more than happy to go to your door and pick up your do­na­tion. I will pro­vide a re­ceipt for do­na­tions of $15 or more.

This Wed­nes­day is Ash Wed­nes­day and for many sac­ri­fices will be taken un­til Easter.

My words of wis­dom for our times this week: “I ex­pect to pass through life but once. If there­fore, there be any kind­ness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fel­low be­ing, let me do it now, and not de­fer or ne­glect it, as I shall not pass this way again.'' God Bless!
