EPSOM & UTICA by Faye Ashton
I don’t think we were quite prepared for a November snowfall of 6+ inches on Thursday in Epsom. It seems other locations didn’t get as much, but I’m sure the child at heart totally enjoyed it. A week ago Friday, the Epsom Girls enjoyed a lunch and a catch-up visit at Wooden Sticks in Uxbridge. The years pass so fast now, and the time we spend together becomes more precious. Sad to hear Doris Armstrong is not in the best of health this past week, but we do wish her a speedy recovery. Our sympathy to former residents Nancy and Gerald Hill in the passing of Nancy’s Mother Betty Thompson this past Saturday. The Purse Mission concludes this week, so if you have something to contribute please leave at Epsom Church or at Donna Eckhardt’s. Thank you to everyone who has generously contributed to this mission project. Reminder: the churches are still open on Wednesday evening from 5 – 9 p.m. I was made aware how beautiful it was to even drive by and see the cross lit up through the windows. Sunday, December 8th, is the evening for the Christmas Community Pot Luck supper at Utica Hall, at 6:30 p.m. Bring neighbours with you and enjoy a meal together. Church is cancelled at Epsom this Sunday November 17th and we will join in worship at Greenbank for their Anniversary with the cluster churches. Our Minister Alex Jebson will be included in the service. This was a busy but frustrating week for area farmers trying to get crops still standing in the field off, and finding a day to enjoy the Royal Agricultural Fair.
