Congratulations to D.J. Grove and Randi Kellachan of Barrie, who were recently engaged. This happy couple plan to be married in the fall, in a ceremony on his parents’ front lawn. Best wishes to you all.
Some families seem to be struck with much difficulty at once. Sympathy is extended to Martin and Sharon Buschbeck, on the death of Martin’s mother of Markdale. While they were there looking after matters, Sharon's father Gerry Eckel of Scugog Island, fell and broke his hip and is in Oshawa Hospital. Our thoughts are with you both at this time.
The Blackstock Agricultural Society will hold its annual meeting in the form of a pot luck dinner, on Thursday evening, January 18th, with gathering at 6:40 p.m. Come and bring your favourite dish and enjoy the fellowship.
Some of our people are away enjoying the warm and sunny weather. Let me know when you return, as I don’t like to announce empty houses.
