Cor­re­spon­dents

The Glengarry News - - Our County Correspond­ents -

Hello, Dalkeith, What a great week­end with all that rain to save us from to­tal crop fail­ure. But don’t let this soak­ing lull you into think­ing we are out of the drought con­di­tions in North Glen­garry. It would take a week of rain to make a dent in the dry­ness that still ex­ists in the un­der­ly­ing soil. So please con­tinue to con­serve wa­ter for the gar­dens. Fill the bird baths and put wa­ter out for the varmints that roam freely at night. No open fires, un­til we are cleared to burn by the town­ship.

Con­do­lences

Dalkeith lost two of its long­time res­i­dences Au­gust 12. Con­do­lences go out to Lloyd Ham­bel­ton and his fam­ily on the pass­ing of his beloved wife, Jean, and to Clara Tay­lor who lost her hus­band and best friend, Jim, on the same day. Please know that our col­lec­tive hearts are heavy and our prayers go out to you at this time.

Travel news

Denise and her fa­ther, Bill Green, have just re­turned from a most en­joy­able trip to Switzer­land where they vis­ited her brother, his son, Paul, for 12 days. While in the coun­try, they trav­elled by train to many towns and tourist sights, and took gon­dola rides up the moun­tain and boat tours on the rivers. Of course, they sam­pled the great food and drink, in­clud­ing lots of cheese and beer!

Cel­e­bra­tion of life

There will be a party Aug. 27 at the li­brary in the com­mu­nity room, dur­ing reg­u­lar hours, 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Peo­ple can bring ap­pe­tiz­ers or desserts and help cel­e­brate the won­der­ful time we have spent with He­len, our faith­ful li­brar­ian for so many years. Please feel free to at­tend, even if you are not a reg­u­lar li­brary user. It’s a party; the more the mer­rier!

Mass

Sun­day, Au­gust 28 at 2 p.m., Fr. Eric Ro­bichaud will cel­e­brate Mass at St. Alexan­der's Ceme­tery in Lochiel. In case of rain, Mass will be cel­e­brated in­side the church. Bring your own lawn chair.

Mag­gie’s mus­ings

Very busy week ahead, and I am very edgy about the tim­ing of each day. I feel like ev­ery day is melt­ing into the next and that the deadlines are rac­ing up from the ground to meet me. Just think­ing about it makes my heart beat faster. Deep breath­ing comes to mind. To­day was two eat­ing events, to­mor­row, a les­son with Cin­derella, and clean­ing the Robert­son Clark walls, Tues­day, clean­ing the walls and a wake, Wed­nes­day, horse and wilder­ness camp, and I will stop at that. So, ev­ery­one have a nice week and be very good to each other. From Breadal­bane with love, Mag­gie.
