We certainly know that winter is not far away. We woke up Thursday morning to find our vehicle covered with the white stuff, and the lawn white. Get your snowblowers ready to go.
The Ham and Scalloped Potato dinner on Tuesday was well attended. Over 50 people were fed, and thanks to all who donated to the Scugog Food Bank.

Ukulele Class started last Sunday, October 14th at the Seagrave United Church. A couple of the children brought their own ukuleles, so we have room for 2 or 3 more young people. We are taking 6 year old children now, so if your child is interested in learning how to play the ukulele, please contact Betty Lou at (905) 985-3595.
Betty Lou Beacock and Darlene Hallett attended the “Closing Celebration” of the Bay of Quinte Conference held at the Emmanuel Church, on George Street in Peterborough, on Saturday. It was a wonderful service with a lot of looking back over the years, and giving thanks for those years, and for the people who participated in it as well as the many leaders. As we move to this new way of doing things, we are reminded that “God is With Us, We Are Not Alone”! Several people from Seagrave attended the Greenbank United Church on Sunday to help them celebrate their 122nd Anniversary. It was a lovely service led by Reverend Les Hills from the Sunderland United Church. The service was followed by a delicious lunch, complete with lots of chat and fellowship.
The Seagrave Church is looking to hire a “Program Organizer” for our children for Sunday mornings. A program would be provided. If you are interested, or know of any one that may be interested, please contact Barb at 905-985-8383 or email@example.com

Blackstock - Cartwright Lions Club. Just home from a terrific weekend with the Governors from 2014-2015 at Lions Camp Dorset. This camp has an amazing history. In 1972 the Hamilton East Lions rented cottages in Parry Sound for two families living with the need for dialysis. A third cottage was rented to house the dialysis machines. In 1973 six families were brought to cottages in Dorset for a relaxing get-away. By 1974 they brought twelve families to Dorset, but with funds exhausted another 30 families were left on a waiting list. The idea of a Lions Camp Dorset came about at the 1974 International Lions Convention. Lion Sandy Ailles of Dorset and Lion Herb Walpole of Hamilton East had a chance meeting. The Dorset Lions had obtained 380 acres of crown land in the early 70’s as part of plan to build baseballs diamonds. However, after hearing of Hamilton East’s dialysis retreats, the idea of building a full-scale camp emerged.With some assistance from corporate sponsors and various government grants, the Lions of Ontario have developed the Camp into a unique facility that is now valued at $3,500,000. This non-profit organization, is recognized by the government as an Independent Health Facility. The Lions Camp Dorset was founded and continues to be supported by the Lions & Lioness Clubs of Ontario. Today, as in the past, groups of volunteers from clubs around the province give their time and experience to build new projects and upgrade the old. Starting from three cottages, with dialysis being performed in the back of a converted school bus, Camp Dorset has grown to enhance the dialysis patient’s vacation experience. Despite its size, Camp Dorset manages to maintain its grass roots style. While services expand, the client’s cost is kept to a minimum. The result is a state-of-the-art dialysis treatment facility which provides a place for a family getaway into the heart of Ontario’s vacation land. For more details, see www.lionscampdorset.ca

Blackstock Cartwright Lions Club
It's countdown time to our Hallowe'en Dance at the Blackstock Recreation Centre. Saturday, October 27th, is the date and 8:00 p.m. is the starting time. If you are looking for tickets, ask for Connie at Penny's Mini - Mart in beautiful downtown Blackstock. The proceeds from this event will go directly to the new hospice in Scugog. More details will be available once we have confirmed the date of our guest speaker, who will update us.
With 2 days of record heat behind us and a week of unseasonably cold ahead, you better get ready for a cold winter ahead. What a terrible thought! However, the autumn colours are better than usual this year, but if you haven’t seen them this week, they will be past their peak by the coming weekend. Many trees are already bare and losing their summer cloaks quickly. Scout’s motto, “Be Prepared!”
A couple of goofs last week! First, the Jazz and Blues Concert was not on October 7th, but on October 14th, and it was a wonderful concert, with a goodly attendance of about 80 people. The music was terrific even though one group, Django Djunkies, had to cancel due to illness.
Bill Morrison headlined the performance with a number of Blues songs, accompanied by a couple of very different guitars. Next, two members of the group Northern Latitude, Scot Benson and Susan Sheard, played with a different style. They serenaded; he on guitar, and she on the vocals with a haunting flute.
Garth Dynes was the last act; I have always admired those who can play guitar while either singing or playing the harmonica at the same time. That takes concentration! Bill Morrison accompanied him on several songs, and they made a very complementary team.
The last event at the Foster Memorial for the year will be on November 18th, at 1:30 p.m., when “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens will be performed. Please mark your calendars and join us for an early start to the season.
The second mistake was that Gwen Layton will indeed be speaking about Lucy Maud Montgomery at the Uxbridge Scott Historical Society on October 17th, but it will be about Lucy Maud Montgomery's involvement in activities surrounding World War 1 (WW1). Maud was deeply involved in things such as the Red Cross. The meeting will be held at the school house, Uxbridge Scott Museum, at 7:00 p.m. Admission by donation.
Several congratulations to be given this week! Gordon and Susan Weatherup celebrated their 25th anniversary. Mr. And Mrs. Grant Smith celebrated their 66th anniversary. Happy birthday goes out to Lynn Rhodes Campbell, and Nan Hill. I learned that Grant Hill is now a resident of the nursing home in Beaverton, a neighbour to George Kydd. Best wishes to all of them.
Next Saturday another very active lady, Muriel Tassie, will celebrate her 90th birthday at the Greenbank Church, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Rather than gifts, please contribute to the fund for a lift at the church. Muriel is also an active member of the Uxbridge Horticultural Society, and she is found each month greeting members and handing out tickets.
Best wishes go out to Alicia Moore and her new husband Jeffrey Nesker who were married in Toronto last Sunday. Present were her grandparents Bruce and Barb Harwood, as well as her brother George and his wife Jenelle from Okotokes, Alberta. Alicia's Uncle Steve and Aunt Sandra, from Georgia, also attended. Many other friends and family were also present. Married on October 13th were Cindy Risebrough and Amanda Van der Gulick.
Congratulations also to the junior boys of Scott Central Public School, who came home with a GOLD in soccer on Saturday afternoon. Way to play boys!
The Sandford Hall was the site for the Central Ontario Women’s Institute meeting last Thursday, October 11th . Women came from Dufferin - Peel, York Region , Durham Region and Kawartha Lakes. Sadly, there are few such groups in our area now. The Sandford WI folded a few years ago, and Zephyr before them. Unfortunately, the speaker who was to speak on Lymes disease was ill, but information was shared about this increasing risk. Joyce Kelly is currently the President. Her grandson, Graham, is a member of the National Rowing Team and spoke of his experiences on the way to Canadian Nationals at Burnaby in November and to the Olympics in Japan.
Barb Weese informed me that the WI had contributed funds to the WI in Dunrobin, scene of the recent Tornado, to be used for assistance to families. In the terrible fires of Fort McMurray, money was also contributed through WI to assist in the many problems just now emerging in mental health, physical health and other longer term results of the catastrophic event in the lives of children and adults.
Please remember the all-day Lucy Maud Montgomery Day to be held October 27th at the Leaskdale Historic Church, including lunch if you wish. See the website or facebook page for details, and how to sign up, if you did not get a letter of notification.
On Sunday October 14th, there was a wonderful service at the Sandford church as we celebrated 167 years of involvement in the community, first known as Salem. Although the present church was opened in 1899 the planning started in 1898, 120 years ago.
Reverend Eiko conducted the worship while local boy Reverend Jim Hackner delivered a rousing message about breathing life into bare bones, which is what we often feel like. The welcome was given by Earle Lockerby, who recently arrived, with his wife, from their summer trip in PEI. (Unfortunately, his wife Heidi had a fall while they were away, and they discovered there was a fracture). Nancy Wolfe accompanied Melinda Delorme on the organ. Melinda and her husband Darrel Sultana had composed a special, and very beautiful, “Celebrate Anniversary Praise” song, which they delivered; Darrel on the guitar and voice, and Melinda with the ukulele and her own beautiful voice.
Next week in Zephyr, the congregation will celebrate their church anniversary at 11:00 a.m. Our former Minister Reverend Diane Bennett-Jones will conduct the worship. All are invited.
As the charge is only paying our minister ¾ time, Reverend Eiko will be on leave from October 15th, to November. She will be returning to Japan, and living and working in her home town. In the meantime the churches will gather together jointly and alternatively.
Don’t forget our Gala on Thursday, October 18th, at 7:30 p.m. Linda Dempster is a folk singer who will sing and play guitar, although she plays other instruments. Her career has been varied and illustrious. Finally, Carol Kingsley and Fred Tierney came to us from Port Perry playing banjo and ukulele, and singing, and making jokes. Last year they kept the audience in stitches. We welcome them back, and you. Tickets are $20.
Tony and Margaret Duivesteyn, former Devitts Road residents for almost 60 years, are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary today. The family is hosting an Open House for them on Saturday, October 20th from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Durham Christian Homes, located at 200 Glenn Hill Drive in Whitby. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Cartwright Central Public School (CCPS) is hosting a free community night on Wednesday October 24th from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. A slight change has been made to the schedule as outlined in this column last week. From 5:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sara Schleien, DDSB Senior Psychologist will be speaking on the timely topic of “Growing Resilience.” Resilience can be cultivated and grown like a garden with the right strategies.
