Lots of news as summer has arrived, so let me get to it. The Ontario District W.I.'s will be hosting a Strawberry Social on Tuesday, July 4th, 2017, at the Scugog Community Centre Arena, in Port Perry. There is only one seating, which is at 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $7.00 for children. This is a ham and salads supper with, of course, locally grown strawberries for dessert. There will also be some entertainment after dinner. All profits support a scholarship for 4-H members in the Durham West area.
On Saturday July 1st, the Epsom/Utica Church invite you to a Salad and Strawberry Supper at Utica Hall from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The price is $15.00 for adults, $8.00 for youth, and children under five are free. Come and celebrate this special day.
The teachers organized and the students executed an amazing and awesome program related to "moving on", at the school on Thursday. When they sang the school song "We're Epsom School and we excel", it was very emotional. Thank you staff for giving the students and families memories to keep for a long time.
A large crowd gathered at Leaskdale church on Saturday to congratulate Fred and Mary Catherwood on the occasion of their 50th wedding anniversary, best wishes for many years more.
This Sunday the church service at Epsom will begin at 11:00 a.m., with Rev. Tim Dayfoot as the minister; a welcome awaits you.
Watch for the mini parade on Thursday as our school children walk through the village one last time. The community congratulates the students who are leaving Epsom School this year. You are leaving this rural school that has sent hundreds of students into the world for over 140 years, to be fine farmers, professionals and good citizens. You will be a part of their ranks in the future. We wish you all bright years ahead.
A safe, fun, happy, and long summer vacation to all the kids and students in our community. Send me your news to firstname.lastname@example.org.
