Another Father’s Day arrived on Sunday. I hope it was a very happy one for all fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and father-figures. Most of us take our fathers for granted, until they are not there any longer. Some of us are very fortunate to have our fathers around for many years; others not so very long, and yet others who may not have had one at all and hopefully someone else filled that role. Whatever your situation, fathers are important. That was the theme of Rick McKinley’s message at church last Sunday as he handed out small gifts for various dad categories such as most children, most hair, and other unique categories. It was quite hilarious at times.
Most of my news this week is good, aside from the death of my friend Ken Catherwood, who succumbed to his injuries after breaking his neck falling from his mower. The Catherwood family comes from Uxbridge, and Ken will be laid to rest in the cemetery here on Thursday. Our deepest condolences to wife Beth(Ashton), sons Barry and Brian and family, and brother Neil and family.
I would also like to note the passing of Bob Bradbury. The Bradbury family owned the bakery in town for many years, and actually delivered their goodies to an extended community. Ron Monkman was one of the drivers and ended up marrying the boss’s daughters, Kay. Only brother Bill married into the Pollock family, owners of the drugstore. I knew Bob mostly from working at St. John’s, but also before that when we were teenagers.
This past week the Memorial service for Don Pegg was held. Our sympathies go out again to Susan Risebrough and her mom Pat.
Len and Lyn Bayard, of Nova Scotia, visited her mother, Wilma Doucette, last week and assisted in preparing her garden, which made her very happy.
Last Monday June Evans organized a party in honour of the visit of Lois Ferguson Woody, who is former sorority sister. The Woodys lived in Leaskdale for a number of years before moving to Virginia. Present sisters were in attendance along with Wilma Bakelaar. Wilma Bakelaar, formerly Homan, and her husband John, recently celebrated their 57th anniversary. Barb Peck was also there and she and her husband Tony just celebrated their 50th anniversary. Other former sisters in attendance were Ann Phillips, Gloria Ewen, and June. It was a wonderful, but brief, reunion.
Joan and Dwight Wideman held a double celebration for their 38th anniversary. They shared the day celebrating with their son Jonathon, and his wife Jeanette - who hails from Regina, Saskatchewan. Jonathon and Jeanette presented Joan and Dwight with their 12th grandchild; a boy named Levi, who born on the same day of their anniversary.
Louise (Weir) and Steve Lougheed have also enjoyed 22 years of married bliss.
Katie (Wilson) and Phil Bottomley recently had a son. It is their second child, and is another grandchild for Jennifer and Phil Wilson of Sandford.
Reverend Eiko Hosaka has just conveyed to us, the good news, that she has been hired as a three-quarter time Minister at the Bradford United Church. We wish her the very best in her new capacity, and wish her many blessings in her ministry.
Happy birthday to Dan Cearns, whose birthday was on June 15th, and who is a writer for The Standard Newspaper.
Many families enjoyed gatherings last Sunday in honour of their fathers and grandfathers. Barb and Bruce Harwood were entertained by Brenda and Brian Moore on Saturday evening, and at Karen and Jerry Popadynic’s on Sunday. Jerry has recently spent time in the hospital.
Last Thursday, a number of ladies from Sandford and Zephyr, including myself, were guests of the Trinity U.C.W. We were served a delicious lunch partly prepared by the Hospitality class of the Uxbridge Secondary School, and then had the experience of listening to our own Adele Boy as she spoke at length about her 3 months as a representative of the United Church for the UN. What an eye-opening talk she gave sharing stories about many rather scary occurrences that we don’t hear about on the news.
On Thursday this week there will be another Uxbridge Genealogy Meeting. The topic this month is UEL. Come and have your questions answered. It will be at 7 p.m. in the library.
On Friday, at the Foster Memorial, Erwin Schack will perform. He is a finger style guitar player. The show begin at 7:30 p.m. and admission is by donation.
Next week the church service will still be in Zephyr. We will be observing Indigenous Day. I will be talking about some of the ways our Indigenous/First Nations, and the settlers,(all of the rest of us) have interacted over the centuries. It will be explored how far have we come in settling differences. My opinion is that it has not nearly been far enough. Please join with us at this service at 10 a.m. Plan to be a bit earlier, as I will be showing some photos beforehand.
June continues to be cool and windy with just glimpses of sunshine, and heavy clouds full of rain. It was good to have the sunshine for Father's Day, and for the many outdoor activities that went on. I hope all dads had a good day along with their loved ones.

The choir sang “Touch of Love” with Wyn Hughes and David Hooker singing solos. Gifts were passed out to all the men in celebration of Father’s Day.

What a beautiful three days of sunshine we've had. With all the early wet weather, the growth of foliage and things planted is so evident, but on Monday, the rain was back again.
Last Sunday, the worship greeters were several of the children from the Sunday School. They celebrated another year of learning bible stories, music, crafts, snacks, and participating in the weekly worship with Minister Stephanie's 'Children's Time'. Lighting the Christ Candle was Madeline M. The readers were Bailee R., Rachell M., and Eli H. For the 'Ministry of Music', the children from the Secondary School sang, “Jesus Loves the Little Children”. There was also an action presentation to the video “We gotta get up, turn around, jump around - singing in the name of Jesus”. The children played six ukuleles to accompany their singing the song, “He's Got the Whole World in His Hands”. Great job kids! Leaders Leslie Martens and Holly Smith presented participation certificates to this great group of children. Session chair, Anne St. John, presented Leslie and Holly with tokens of appreciation for three years of great leadership and service in the church school. They will help occasionally this Fall, when the new year of Sunday School resumes, but we are still looking for more new leadership. There will be an activity centre in the Sanctuary for the children throughout June and July. In August, the Children's VIBE Camp will be held the week of August 19th. More details will be announced later.
The Greenbank United Church congregation will worship at the Seagrave United Church for August services. Appreciation to three people, who have been providing music leadership, were recognized by Anne and the congregation. They were: Valerie Hunter, Wilma Smith, and Doug Watson.

I attended the 100th birthday celebration for Eulah (Parish) Shier on Saturday, June 8th. It was a wonderful gathering of family and friends, at the Trinity Church, in Uxbridge. Eulah still enjoys life, and she gave recognition to her special care giver, Evelyn (Spence) Murphy, and to all the staff at Amica, which is where Eulah lives now.
Sincere sympathies go to Betty Ann Harder and her family, with the death of her mother, Oma Fife, on June 6th, in Lindsay.

Wow, we've had sunshine for three days in a row! Things are looking up, including all those folks who were gazing into the sky and wondering what that yellow thing was up there. Hard to believe, but they just started working the field across from me, and clouds of dust are rising. Some fields are still sporting ponds of water in their midst, and housing families of baby geese.
Happy birthday wishes go out go out to Ross Risebrough and Audrey Adams. On Saturday a big party was held at Trinity United to celebrate the 100th birthday of Eulah Shier. Eulah has many friends and relatives within this community, and we wish her many more years of happy, healthy living. Two more big parties were held on Sunday afternoon. Jean Harrison was celebrating her 95th birthday at the Presbyterian Church in Leaskdale, where I am sure there was a large number of friends and relatives in atendance. The party room at Shobrook was full as friends, neighbours, and relatives of all degree, gathered to wish Aileen Warren a wonderful 95th birthday. Aileen has lived in Shobrook much longer than I realized, and she loves all the activities it has to offer. She particularly loves painting. Her painting mentor spoke about her tenacity, and her determination to finish a project as being a possible reason for her longevity - since it doesn’t seem to run in the family. We wish both these ladies continued good health, both physically and mentally and wish them many more happy years. Both have serviced their communities in many ways over the years.
On a sad note this week, Morley Ross passed away. Both Morley and his wife Laura, nee Weir, were born in the Uxbridge area and lived their married life in Leaskdale, farming, running the garage, and raising their 4 sons. Lately they lived in Douglas Crossing, only recently moving to a new location. Our sympathies go out to Laura, the boys and their families, sisters Evelyn Cox-Meek and family, and Noreen and family.
Sorry to learn too that Norm Meek suffered a fall a couple of weeks ago, leaving him with a pinched nerve which gives him great pain that the doctors can do little for. Some of you may know my friend/cousin by marriage, Ken Catherwood, who fell last week from his riding mower and broke his neck, and is now partially paralyzed and unable to breathe on his own. My sister-in-law Joan Clarke Asling also suffered an injury and broke all 3 bones in her ankle on Thursday, and is now encased in a cast from knee to toe tip. Prayers and thoughts are with them all.
Some community members attended the Open House at the Pet Hospital, recently purchased by Dr. Rachel Stadnyk (married to Jamie Risebrough). Best wishes to Rachel with her new endeavour.
Congratulations to Jacquelyn Smalley who just graduated from the University of Toronto's Law School. Her proud parents, Amy and Stan, attended the convocation.
A new feature is now in Sandford. A communications tower has been installed in the back yard of the store. Many residents are hoping for faster internet speed, but the tower's system will have a limited distance.
On Sunday afternoon there was a wonderful concert at the St. Andrew’s Presbyterian church presented by Bella Nove and their guests the New Song Chancel Choir. The vocals were wonderful, and were accompanied at times by the piano, oboe, drums, guitar and organ. The finale showed off the talents of every singer resulting in a standing ovation of the very full house.
The Church in Zephyr, last Sunday morning, was led by Elwood Kirton. The message was given by Keith, and special music was provided by Mark Profit. A special information meeting followed the service. Next week Rick McKinley will once more take the pulpit.
The Sandford decoration is on June 23rd, at 2 p.m., and in Zephyr it will be on July 7th, at 2:30 p.m.
It was wonderful to see 8 schools from the DDSB qualify and compete at the 2019 Ontario Skills Competition. From our area competitors were: Prince Albert School - Technology Design and Building, grades 4 - 6, member Levi Scott, and S.A.Cawker School - Construction Challenge, grades 7- 8. Congratulations to all.
This is the time of year for graduations. Congratulations to Ericka Wilson who received from her Bachelor of Arts - Honours, in Communication from U.O.I.T, and to Jeff Wilson who received his diploma in Agriculture and Horticulture from the University of Guelph, Ridgetown. Congratulations are also extended out to to Leanne Collins who received a Nursing Degree from Nipissing University, and Laura Collin who graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology from the University of Guelph. We are so proud of each of you.
Our prayers go out to Ken Catherwood who is a patient in the Kingston I.C.U., after suffering a fall which broke his neck. We pray for healing for him, and also pray for Joan Asling who fell and broke three bones in her ankle this past Wednesday. After surgery on Thursday, she is feeling much better, but she knows she will spend much of the summer nursing that ankle. Our continued prayers go out for improved health for Harry Bolton, who is in the Oshawa Hospital, and who suffered several strokes.
These past summer-like days have kept the farmers hustling to get the hay crop tended. We are so thankful for the extra help from neighbours. Several from this community attended the Fish Fry at Vroomanton United Church on Saturday evening. It was tasty.
Our sincere sympathies go out to Laura Ross, and her family, on the passing of husband and father Morley Ross.
