EPSOM & UTICA by Faye Ashton

By the time our news is in print, we will only be one month to Christmas. While we race about preparing for this special day, let’s not forget the real meaning of Christmas, the love that came down in the form of a baby.

To Arnold K., Ericka W., Grant E. and Eleanor P., who have already enjoyed their birthday and to all who are celebrating this month, we hope you experience a very special day that lasts through the year. Happy Birthday and Anniversary to all.

The Canadian Foodgrains Project grew 70 acres of soybeans during a tremendous growing 2021 season. The crop was sown in mid-May and harvested in October by a dedicated group of area farmers willing to give their time to feed the hunger. This year’s crop brought in a total of $50,000.00 worth of soybeans, and we also had $3000 in donations from members of the community. Our group forwarded $45,000 to the Canadian Foodgrains Project in Manitoba, which will be matched by the federal government and help with the fight against hunger around the world. Many thanks to the community members who donated to this project, the crew of Evans’, Parishs’, Kerrys’ and Ashtons’.

Also, Thank you to the suppliers who donate products to make this project a huge success. They are Pioneer Hybrids, Maizex Seeds, Dekelb Seeds, Bayer Crop Science, Reesors Grain and Cavan Agri Service.

We’re sending our prayers and get-well wishes to James Houghland as he recovers from heart surgery this past Thursday at St. Michaels hospital in Toronto.

With the covid numbers climbing, let’s all still follow the rules and stay safe and keep all around us safe too.
