Hello Pointe Au Baril. Wow that was a hot, sticky week. When it’s so muggy and humid out, it takes a toll on everyone, especially our seniors and people who work outside. Remember, you cannot drink enough water during heat like that. This week brings cooler, more comfortable temperatures for everyone.
I have a correction from last week’s column. It was not Lillian White’s birthday on July 7, it was Jim White’s birthday and it will be Lillian’s on the July 14. Sorry for the error.
I unfortunately do not have the results of the ball hockey tournament from Canada Day or any of the winners of the silent auction. Hopefully, I will have them for next week.
The Florence Universal Church services are Sundays from 11 a.m. to 12 noon. Everyone is welcome. Staying with the same subject, The Florence Universal Church is having a dedication ceremony for the restored 1898 stain glass windows, on Sunday, July 22 at 12 noon with a light lunch to follow. They want to thank everyone who donated and show their appreciation.
A very happy birthday wish to Ruby Reid. Ruby celebrates her day on July 17.
Lobsterfest is coming together nicely thanks to all the hard work that Fred and Nancy Lefevre have done. These guys have this stuff down to a science.
Tickets are selling quickly so don’t be left out in the cold, get yours soon. Pointe Au Baril Emergency Response Team (PABERT) is looking for some strong men or women to lend a hand on the night of Friday, July 20 to assist in putting up the tent. If you can lend a hand, please call me at 705-774-1726.
It would be greatly appreciated. If any high school students need some hours, it’s a great opportunity to earn some.
I was chatting with a friend the other day about our community and the lack of things for the kids to do.
We discussed how we used to have a baseball diamond, a place to swim and just stuff to keep the young kids occupied.
There are many things to get your kids into if you don’t mind travelling to Parry Sound.
Unfortunately, not every family has the means or the opportunity to enrol their kids in things like hockey, soccer or baseball.
I personally think that this should change. There is nothing here for Pointe Au Baril kids except an ice rink that they have to snow blow or shovel before they can use it if there is even any ice prepared.
It is a crime that we live in such a beautiful place but our own kids can’t even go swimming unless they own a boat and travel out on The Bay.
If you have any ideas on what we can do to change this sad state of affairs, let me know.
It was a great week for me; Nicole was home to visit for a week before she starts her new job as a personal support worker. Good luck Nicole, I am sure you will do a wonderful job. Thank you for the information sent to me. It makes my job a whole lot easier. Have a great week Pointe Au Baril.
