Hello everyone. Well if April showers bring Mayflowers I wonder what April snow will do to them.
As I write my column while listening to the weatherman, he is saying snow tomorrow. I thought it was spring let’s move on forget about the snow.
The annual Pointe Au Baril Duckie race was again another year of success. At the end of the tunnel it was Darlene Evoy who took home the grand prize. Matt French owned a close second place duck and third duck owner was Chuck Green.
The first 10 children’s ducks that swam pass the line was as follows: Brandon Reicheld, Autum Rose Ley, Hayden Payne, Meegwun Scale, Orion Rolph, Hayden Payne, Danielle Mullen, Keira Lizmore, Nathan Scale and Lucas Scale. The Northeast Georgian Snowmobile Club would like to thank all the sponsors, volunteers and attendees for making it again a success.
The annual Daffodil Tea last week saw a smaller crowd than usual.
Even though attendance was down fun and laughs were among them all. The door prize winners were as follows: Joan Penfold, Andrea Jamieson, Michelle Hodgson, Darren Stewart, Keith Gardner, Karen Gardner Penfold, Riley Harris, Joan Hunt, Edith Hodgson and Mary Kewaquado.
The major prize winners were as follows: Teacups with carrier and tea -Irene Pawis; handmade Victorian House -Edith Hodgson; Tray set and buffet server -Emmaline Madigan; Lighthouse Picture - Joan Hunt; garden container- Edith Hodgson; Placemats, wineglasses and candles-Gwen Higman; basket of wine glasses and candles- Andrea Jamieson; and barbecue kit - Joe Williams. The Pointe Au Baril Ladies Church group members would like to thank everyone who donated, volunteered and came out to support them on their daffodil tea. The next event for the group is the annual fall rummage sale September 29 - mark your calendars.
Happy Birthday wishes for the month of April go out to the following, Emmaline Madigan, Helen Tedford, Phyllis Rhodenizer, Susan Lutcher, Ron & Mark Madigan and Brenda Thorkildsen. Some birthdays are late, some early, but none are forgotten.

The Pointe Au Baril Emergency Response Team is gearing up for another season. The team is looking for anyone who would be willing to join. It’s a great way to learn first aid, CPR, firefighting and is a way to give back to the community. If you are interested in becoming part of the team please call Mike Payne at 705-366-2624.
Every year a bunch of friends get together once a week to throw a few games of darts. I have been privileged to be part of this group enjoying laughs and fun.
This year after 25 weeks of great playing it was Rob Morel who took home first place; second, Dave York; third, Mike Higman; fourth, Darlene Evoy; fifth, Janine Morel; sixth. Eric Gardner; seventh, Wendy York; eighth, Hilary Billard; ninth, Donna Longlade; tenth, that would be me (not bad though for playing every other week); eleventh, Sue Crawford; and twelfth, Kelly Higman.
The men’s high score with 140 went to Eric Gardner and ladies high score with 144 went to me. The men’s high outs went to Mike Higman with 92 and ladies to Wendy York with 74.
Mike also won the award for most doubling out for the season with a score of 83. Janine Morel was awarded the most improved player. I think this is the first year since I started playing darts in the village that nobody shot a score of 180.
Have a great week everyone. Stay happy and healthy.
