EPSOM & UTICA by Faye Ashton

Thursday, July 21st, tells us we’re one month into summer already.

We’re dry again, but crops and gardens are still doing their best to keep us from complaining. Looking for the rain that’s predicted for overnight.

The EastGen Challenge at Markham, from July 12th to 13th, saw over 100 4H participants from Durham East and West, Simcoe North and South, Wellington, Grey, York, Dufferin, Peterborough and Kawartha Lakes, showing their calves in the conformation class and themselves for showmanship. Each participant did their very best and definitely lived up to the motto of the challenge, “The Future Looks Bright.”

A lovely afternoon was enjoyed at the Sommerville farm to celebrate Betty’s mother Dorothy’s birthday. Treasured friends Doris Armstrong and Marie Wilson, who both are 90-plus years young, made the day extra special.

This Sunday, July 24th, will be the last service at Epsom United Church until August 28th, when we will be back at 10 a.m. with Rev. Edith Ann presiding.
