Another two weeks has been swept away, mostly by rain, but we are hopeful that the weather of the last few days will continue and that Spring will arrive. Many folks they are still coping with soggy lawns that really need cutting, laneways deep in mud, and fields that are too wet to move machinery on. We live in hope.
It has been a busy time with lots of good things happening. Bill Richardson and Trevor Cox celebrated their birthdays’ over a week ago; and Susan Rise-brough, Jenny VanMaurik, Stan Smalley and Chandler Ball celebrated just recently. The best little dog catcher we ever had, Ann Barrett, also celebrated with a higher number than the rest. However, the lady with the most years is Eulah Shier, celebrating her 100th. Happy birthday, belated or otherwise, to this group.
Jenny and Cor Van Maurik celebrated their anniversary, but both are a bit under the weather. I hope it was still a great celebration. Bruce and Tanis Smith celebrated their 1st anniversary on Sunday. Happy anniversary to these folks, as well as Gary and Yvonne Harrison who are celebrating their 56th wedding anniversary.
On a sad note for those Uxbridge old timers, Sharon O’Beirn passed away. The O’Beirn family was large and well-known in the area but are now, like a lot of families, spread out from the Township. Our sympathies go out to her siblings and other family members.
Mack Moore spent a satisfying and challenging weekend in Clinton showing her power horse, and barrel racing. It was a great performance.
Scott Central School held a Track and Field event for grades 3 to 8 last week. I hope they did not get wet.
The Clarke sisters, Faye Wildfong, Elaine Cordingly and Joan Asling, spent a few days in Ottawa. I hope they saw more tulips than floods, as reports of the flooding is what previous visitors have noted.
Lorraine Ottolini and Norma Scott both participated in team Curves 'Big Bike Ride', for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. The group raised more than $7,000 for the cause.
Mother’s Day at the Sandford church was especially exciting. Ken Welsh read a piece he composed about his own mother. But you know, being Ken, it was read in a very theatrical and moving way and got rave reviews. Eleven-year old Alayna Mathewson accompanied her grandmother, the pianist, on her violin throughout the service, and she did a terrific job. She is a very accomplished young lady.
Several families, including the Scotts and the Harwoods, had a special day together as a treat for their mothers, as I am sure did many others.
The Sandford Council met last Tuesday night for their monthly meeting. Since we do not have a Minister now, there were certain things we could not vote on, but we still had a great deal of discussion. Mark your calendars for upcoming special events including Sandford’s Gala on October 18th, their anniversary on October 20th, and the Zephyr anniversary on October 27th.
On May 21st, Steve Coles attended the Official Board meeting, in Sandford, to enlighten us about some of the ways we can proceed forward with our congregations. After his presentation, and question period the Official Board held their meeting. The Council in Zephyr will meet on May 23rd.
Last Thursday night, at the library, Jane McNamara spoke to the Uxbridge Genealogy group. Her topic was a great interest to most of us as she spoke about how to research our farm family records. She shared information with us about the many places that information can be found, whether genealogical in nature, or simply to know about the challenges our ancestors lived with as they farmed.
Mark Thackway performed at the third 'Friday at the Foster' of this season. Mark, along with a guitar-playing friend, performed many numbers in the country and western genre. It was an amazing perfor-mance. Next week a favourite musician returns again. Jane Loewen is a fantastic singer, and an all-round musician who keeps the audience deeply entertained. Join us at 7:30 p.m at the Foster Memorial for her performance. The Foster Memorial is a fantastic building, in its own right, but it is surprisingly unknown amongst even our own Ux-bridge citizens. The following week, on May 31st, singer and guitarist, Derek Christie, will be the entertainer.
At church in Sandford last Sunday, Reverend Lionel Ketola joined us as the guest Minister. Lionel is a full-time chaplain in the intensive care unit of St. Michael’s hospital. His message was about love, and about what drew the early believers to Christianity in spite of the horrible persecution they faced. Nancy Wolfe was our organist.
Next week, on May 26th, Carol Johnson will be leading the service, and will continue her message about Judaism, and its influence on Christian-ity. Nancy Wolfe will again be our organist. The service will be at 10 a.m. in Sandford. On the same day, at 3 p.m., the Annual Spring Service will take place at the Historic Pine Grove Church. There will be special music, and all are invited to attend.
On May 29th, the Uxbridge Scott Historical Society will hold their annual meeting at the Museum School House. After the business portion of the meeting, guest speaker, George Duncan, will present “Ontario’s Vanishing Barn Heritage”. This is a timely topic when you look around and see what is happening to our countryside. Just this week alone a barn, located just down the road, vanished. All are invited to attend this AGM and make your ideas known before even more of our rural and small town culture and history disappear.
On June 15th, the commun-ity of Zephyr will hold their Annual Yard Sale. The church will be hosting a fundraising bake sale and barbeque as well. Please come out and lend a hand. In June, all the church services will be held back in the Zephyr sanctuary.
We are finally getting some sunshine and warmer weather. The farmers are able to get out on the land, and people are buying and planting flowers to make their homes beautiful. This is the time for planting your garden.
The Park Committee would like to thank the Greenbank Lions for their continued support. Once again they have donated the proceeds from their spring fertilizer sales, in the Seagrave area, to our Park. Please continue to support them, and all the wonderful projects they do for our community. Thank-you Greenbank Lions.
We are busy planning our 'Art Day' on July 6th, and we need artists and crafts people who would like to display and sell their work. The cost is $20, and the funds will go towards our park improvement. Please email email@example.com for more information or to register ,You may also email us at anytime with suggestions and comments, or to register as a volunteer for events and/or upcoming projects. We value community input and can accomplish so much more with some help.
Happy Birthday wishes go out to Ashleigh Finn whose birthday was on May 19th.
The greeters in church last Sunday were Howard and Teri Murphy-Payne. The Christ candle was lit by our guest speaker, Doug Ferris, of Greenbank. Doug’s message was about love. Jesus said we are to love one another, but He understands that we do not have to agree with one another. Doug explained that God is like a mother: surrounding and nourishing us with love. Later, Doug played the guitar and sang “Your Love Makes Me Sing”. The congregation prayed for Juli Conard Myers, asking God to guide her and walk with her through the storm in her life right now. We prayed for her good health to return, and for God to bring her a spirit of calmness and central peace.

Guest speaker, Doug Ferris, presented during the children's time, and talked about the Golden Rule which is to do unto others as you would have them do unto you, and the importance of loving one another. The sermon message entitled “Even to the Gentiles”, reminds one that all are God's children. Doug also blessed us with a music ministry by singing “Your Love is Amazing”, while playing his guitar.

They recently came back, on May 16th, from a Father-Son trip they had together in Ireland.

As we age, it feels like time goes by more quickly each day, but somehow it seems that I have missed spring, and that it is fall. The temperatures are below normal, there is rain and more rain, and I’m thinking that one day soon there will be snow. I usually complain about the heat and humidity, but right now I could use some of it.

The greeters at church on 'Mother’s Day Sunday' were Tara and Terry Taylor. Dale Goddard, whose birthday is on May 15th, visited the birthday box. The Taylor family lit the Christ Candle. Minister Stephanie’s story for the 'Young at Heart ' was about a mother raising her son, and as he grew up, she would rock him and sing to him when he was troubled. When he grew up, his mom was much older, so he took care of her by holding her, and singing the same song back to her. The choir’s anthem was “Bless this House”. Tara Taylor gave the report for M & S. Tara and John Olivero were asked to teach the Brownies and Sparks, from Prince Albert, how to make the milk bag mats and this enabled the Sparks and Brownies to earn another badge. At the close of the service Tara and Terry handed out a carnation to every mom and grandmother.

Blackstock & District Lions Club: We have had a very busy week. First, we hosted the Lions from Region 33, for club officer training, on Monday. With our new Lions year starting on July 1st, it's imperative that the new presidents, vice presidents, treasurers, secretaries and membership chairpersons be updated with the current responsibilities in their role. Second, clubs in the area came to discuss 'Club Forward', a programme designed to help us with recruitment and retention of members. And finally, some of us are involved in a membership webinar today that has participants from all over North America taking part. It is a very busy time, but a rewarding one. The members of our club congratulate the Port Perry Lions in their efforts to rejuvenate their membership, and wish them well for their celebration on May 22nd.
Mother Nature did shine on Saturday for outdoor events that were taking place. The Greenbank Pavilion and yard, at the Hall, were busy with the ongoing barbeque and bake sale happening alongside with the Lions collection of scrap metal, electronics, batteries, and bottles for their fundraiser. The fundraiser was most successful, and at church on Sunday, Canyon Myers, on behalf of his mother Juli, father Tim, and sister Faith, thanked all for the support and caring demonstrated by these events. May better health come Juli's way, and to others who are ill.
The greeters at church last Sunday were Tim, Canyon, and Faith Myers. The Christ Candle was lit by Briar Smith, who turned three years old on May 11th, assisted by his mother Holly. Minister Stephanie welcomed guest organist Tom Baker of Uxbridge, and the choral anthem piano accompaniment. Tom Baker provided beautiful music and the choir's anthem, a more modern rendition of “For the Beauty of the Earth,”was lovely. Their participation made the Mother's Day service very special.
The children's story time described a mother's love, based on this lesson in the book, “Love You Forever” by Robert Munsch. The children listened to the story and sang along with the rhymes. Minister Stephanie's message was inclusive and descriptive to all mothers, from all walks of life, and from the past to the present. Margaret Ann Lamb read the scripture quoting from Acts chapter 9, and John chapters 10 and 19. Later, the children distributed carnations, and then attended Sunday School.
