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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
