As the kids are trying to get back into the school groove, the rest of us have been enjoying the late summer weather from the window at work.
Having just enjoyed two exceptional local area fairs, a big thanks goes out to the volunteers and participants who have laboured during the year and at the fairs to bring together all the events. Hats off to all the ones involved from our own community, as well.
A standing welcome awaits you and your children to Sunday service and Sunday School at 11:00 a.m. each Sunday at the Epsom Church. Bethesda-Reach W.I. is back in full fall swing. The September meeting will be Wednesday the 27th at 7:30 pm in the Epsom United Church. The feature speaker will be Margaret Taylor-Sevier, speaking on her trip to Tanzania. Plans will also be finalized for the Victorian Tea on October 14th, from 2 to 4 p.m., at the Uxbridge Senior's Centre. A special guest will be Rosemary Oliver, a fibre artist. Everyone is welcome to all meetings and events.
The 4H Dairy calf clubs of Uxbridge, Port Perry, Sunderland and Beaverton exhibited their calves on Friday evening at the Beaverton Fair. The top five from each of the fairs are allowed entry and each did a superb job. What a great group of young adults.
Congratulations to James and Thelma Houghland as they became grandparents to their first grandson, Tyler Jacob.
The community flocked to Green Tractors, formally Utica Farm Equipment, on Saturday, to enjoy their 50th Anniversary as a company. Arnold and Gail Kerry along with Gail's father Charlie Cottyn, began this dealership and have watched it serve the surrounding community well. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to share this special day with you and we wish you all the best in the future.
Saturday was also the wedding of Nicolus Eckhardt and Janai Cairns, at the bride's home in Zephyr. The reception was held at the Mount Albert Legion. We extend sincere congratulations to Nick and Janai for lifelong happiness.
A fantastic celebration took place at the Sommerville barn on Saturday as friends from far and wide arrived to celebrate Len and Betty's 50th wedding anniversary. Such a special time to visit with friends and extend warm wishes for the years ahead to Betty and Len.
