What a beautiful day Sunday was, with sunshine and blue sky, birds singing and flowers blooming everywhere. A cause for celebration at Sandford and Zephyr churches on Holy Humour Sunday! The event was led by Joannie Sine in Zephyr and Carol Johnson in Sandford. People had fun admiring everyone's hats, laughing at jokes and singing a joyful song with Melinda leading. Several participated in a fun skit.
Next week is another special with the York Regional Police Chorus performing for us at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15.00 for some wonderful music. Board members (including myself) have tickets. You may also get tickets at the door.
The following week, May 7th has been set aside as Remembrance Day. 'This is six months too early,' you might say, but we are remembering those who have passed on, and whose families have made presentations to the church in their honour. We look forward to a great attendance for this occasion as well.
It’s a musical weekend with the Rising Stars concert on Friday Night, the fund raiser for the Uxbridge Scholarship Fund, at St. Andrew’s. Then on Saturday afternoon, One Voice choir presents their “O Canada” performance at St. Paul’s.
Last Thursday evening, the Uxbridge Genealogy group heard a great presentation about all the wonderful old maps available on line which can help you trace your ancestors. It was informative and enlightening!
Many people from here enjoy going to Epsom’s beef supper, which will be held May 5th, at the Uxbridge Seniors Centre. Speaking of Epsom, any readers of this area who were teachers, students, or parents of students etc. of Epsom Public school, please send photos, or your intent to bring memorabilia to the closing event “Celebrating Epsom School” to be held June 11th at the school, to Faye Ashton, Rob Ashton or myself. Look for the Facebook page for details.
The “Friday at the Foster” concerts begin on May 5th, 7:00 p.m. with Katherine Dynes and Alan Gribble as headliners for the evening. There is a fantastic line-up of musical talent for future shows, with many former performers and several new ones; also several special nights dedicated to Canadian content. Don’t miss either the concerts or this wonderful building we are so fortunate to possess.
Sunday evening I was privileged to attend the “Heart to Heart” presentation at Uxbridge Baptist Church. This is a program headed by Jennifer Wilson (Phil) to assist Pikangicum and Weagamow.
