If you have not made it to any con­certs you must try to make it out on Wed­nes­day evenings. It is a beau­ti­ful set­ting and there is lots of shade!

For more info call Pa­trick at 613-525-3520 or 613-551-8546. Hello, folks, I wish to thank my read­ers who heeded my ad­vice with re­gards to the fact that I needed some in­put from you all out there in or­der to pro­vide you with some news, ac­tiv­i­ties, etc. for my weekly col­umn.

The heav­ens fi­nally opened and gave us a good down­pour of that much needed rain. My flowerbeds perked up and the lawn seems to have come back to life! Need­less to men­tion that the farm­ers must also be very thank­ful. And this morn­ing, as I write, the sun is bright, the tem­per­a­ture is more mod­er­ate and it seems like we are go­ing to have some lovely sum­mer weather yet.

How­ever, I no­ticed over the week­end that the days have al­ready started to shorten. It was dark out­side at 8:30 last night!

Fr. Eric Ro­bichaud will cel­e­brate Mass at the St. Alexan­der's Ceme­tery in Lochiel at 2 p.m. Sun­day, Aug. 28. A lovely oc­ca­sion to get to­gether in prayer with friends and fam­ily. Please bring your lawn chairs, how­ever, should it rain, Mass will be cel­e­brated in­side the church.

Let us wel­come into this world, Scar­lett El­iz­a­beth Snow born in Cam­bridge, Aug. 13, weigh­ing 7 lb. 4 oz. Scar­lett is the baby daugh­ter of Julie and Jon Snow and happy lit­tle sis­ter for Stella.

The proud grand­par­ents are Regina and Gary Snow, from Cam­bridge, Linda Lav­i­gne and Yvan, from Glen Robert­son, and Jean-Pierre Lav­i­gne and Suzanne from Fas­sifern. Con­grat­u­la­tions to a happy fam­ily for their new ad­di­tion.

J.P. and I would like to wish a be­lated happy birth­day to our good friend Jac­ques Jeau­rond who cel­e­brated Aug. 12. Happy Birth­day, Jac­ques, and may you have health and hap­pi­ness in many more years to come.

May you all have a won­der­ful week and make the most of each day. God Bless!

Bet­ter news

Af­ter a visit with my chi­ro­prac­tor, I am feel­ing a bit bet­ter. He suc­ceeded in plac­ing the bulged disc in its place but I am still walk­ing with a limp be­cause it still af­fects my leg and up­per thigh. I am tak­ing life easy and only do­ing what I can. I am told that this is the se­cret to get­ting bet­ter. Thank you to all who gave me en­cour­ag­ing words.


Birth­day wishes go­ing out to Mar­guerite La­joie, a res­i­dent of Val­ley Gar­dens in Green Val­ley who cel­e­brated her 95th birth­day with her fam­ily July 29. She was born in 1921 on the fam­ily farm on the 7th con­ces­sion of Lan­caster Town­ship. Her par­ents were Séraphin Brunet and Délia Léger and she was one of 12 chil­dren.

She mar­ried the late Ge­orge La­joie in 1939 at the age of 18 and had four chil­dren: Ron­ald, Cher­ry­lene, Nicole, Mau­rice. She also has seven grand­chil­dren and 10 great­grand­chil­dren. She is a grand and beau­ti­ful lady who al­ways has a smile on her face.

Get well

Get well wishes go out to Hélène Pa­que­tte, wife of Roland Pa­que­tte, who is a pa­tient in the Corn­wall Hospice. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and the fam­ily.


This past Sun­day the Fourth De­gree Knights of Colum­bus gath­ered at the Alexan­dria Pizze­ria with their spouses to en­joy a sup­per and to frat­er­nize. A great time was had with Dea­con Claude Brunet and the Faith­ful Nav­i­ga­tor Gre­gory Ryan telling jokes. They had ev­ery­one laugh­ing and then Claude sang a few songs. A de­li­cious meal was en­joyed by all.


Deep­est sym­pa­thies go­ing out to the fam­ily of Pa­trick Gilles Aimé Le­gault, of Corn­wall, who passed away ac­ci­den­tally last week at the age of 25.

The only child of Gilles and Rox­anne (St-Jean) Le­gault, he also leaves his grand­mother, Agathe St- Jean, his pa­ter­nal grand­par­ents Aimé and Jean­nine Le­gault.

He will be missed by his aunts and un­cles, Suzanne St- Jean (Stephen Barn­hart), Jean Pierre, Robert (Suzanne) and many cousins and friends. His fu­neral was held Aug. 15 in the chapel of La­haie and Sullivan in Corn­wall. Rox­anne is my hus­band’s cousin and Agathe is his aunt. Quite a tragedy.

Now that we have had a bit of rain and the weather has cooled down, I hope ev­ery­one en­joys this week and may God bless. Have a great week.

Hello, Glen­garry. Wasn't it nice to hear the pit­ter pat­ter of rain on the roof this past week!? Re­lief. I know the vil­lage hasn't quite been it­self this past month. It's been too hot!

Hope­fully there is some cooler weather in our fu­ture that will en­cour­age peo­ple to get out so we can re­turn to our usual Sum­mer sea­son. Bet­ter late than never. I just hope it's not one of th­ese never sit­u­a­tions. Hope to see you in the vil­lage. There's a lot of good things hap­pen­ing here in Lan­caster. Whether it's that per­fect gift, gro­ceries, or a lunch or din­ner out with friends, think of us if you can. You'll be sur­prised what this lit­tle town has to of­fer.
