The U.C.W. enjoyed a meal out at Pickles and Olives on Tuesday afternoon.
The Ashton Family attended graduation for Donavon Ashton of Durham College, at the Tribute Centre in Oshawa.
There were so many great memories from last week's reunion at the school. The awarding of a plaque, artistically designed by Sarah Holtby, presented to three former students, now in their nineties. The alumni that were presented a plaque were: Ray Munro and Dorothy Prentice Wilson, both 96, and Ruth Payne Kydd who is 99 years young. Betty Sommerville, our Ward 1 Councillor and former student of Epsom School, kept the afternoon events moving, as the Master of Ceremonies. Pat Asling told us some of Epsom's earlier history. Ken Smart related the special 10 years he enjoyed as teacher, and Darlene Christie recalled her days attending school here. At the same time, everyone was enjoying a vegetable tray, cheese and crackers, and all the home made pies their tummies could hold. Close to 400 different people signed the guest book. The school is planning a parade for the last day of school. If you have anything antique or fun for the parade, be at the school for 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 29th, for this celebration.
A beautiful wedding, at the Lawler home, for daughter Becky, was solemnized on Saturday afternoon. Even the delay of an hour and a half, because of the thunderstorm, didn't dampen any spirits.
It was a banner week for some of the young rep soccer players in our community, who compete for the North Durham United. Liam Wilks had a goal and is one of the top scorers in the league; Martina Magnante had the winning goal for her team; and Jordan Brown played his first league game, in goal, and was terrific, including a stopped penalty shot.
