SAW­ING AWAY: Lan­caster res­i­dent Lau­ri­ane Mar­leau, 9, ap­pears to have the ad­van­tage in this log-saw­ing demon­stra­tion at the St. Mary’s Church hall in Wil­liamstown Sun­day. At the other end of the saw is Fa­ther Louis Groete­laars, Tav­ish McDon­ald, 12, of Wil­liamstown, and his fa­ther, Tom. Tav­ish’s mother, Tawnya, is sit­ting on the log. The log-saw­ing was one of sev­eral events that took place at the church’s Maple Syrup Fes­ti­val, which dou­bled as a fundraiser for the church hall. Other events in­cluded a ham sup­per, a bon­fire with hot ap­ple cider, and horse-drawn wagon rides to Tony Vo­gel’s Sugar Camp. Event co-or­ga­nizer Thelma Cho­lette says that the funds will help re­pair the roof and re­place car­pet in the hall’s re­cep­tion area. Sun­day’s event was the sec­ond fundraiser of the year; the first was a Fam­ily Day So­cial Feb. 18. The next event will be a post-ca­noe race spaghetti sup­per at the Char-Lan Rec Cen­tre on April 15.
