Thank you

Grey Dufferin Pastoral Charge would like to thank our church members, our community, our families and friends, for all the help and contributions you have made throughout 2017. The Pancake Breakfast, Crokinole Tournament, Beef Supper, 150th Osprey Old Home Weekend, and Apple Pies were successful and fun events. We thank you all.

Ray’s Place, its volunteers and supporters thank the family, friends and neighbours of the late ALICE NOBLE, who generously donated a bursary in her name, to be known as the ALICE NOBLE BURSARY. The bursary will be used to support local students to pursue post-secondary education at colleges and trade schools.

2017 Poppy Fund Campaign: The Royal Canadian Legion, Creemore Branch 397, would like to thank local businesses of Creemore, Cashtown Corners, Singhampton and Glen Huron for hosting poppy boxes during the recent campaign. The monies raised will be used to provide care and comfort for veterans, for the awarding of student bursaries, for donations to various charities, and for the procurement of future Poppy Fund material. Thanks to all the individuals and businesses that donated to this worthwhile cause, and for making it another successful year.

Another year, another Remembrance Day Service. I should say, another wonderful Service in honour of the men & women who sacrificed themselves in belief of the future of our political and religious ideals. I would like to express my appreciation to the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 397 for mounting such a fine demonstration of respect on behalf of our community.  The event was a tremendous success thanks to President Comrade Jim Richards for his leadership, to Comrade Mike Loranger for his always professional role as Master of Ceremony, and to the Ladies Auxiliary for providing such a delicious celebratory lunch.  Of course, I would be remiss if I did not include the Reverends Lorna May and Jeff Inglis and Captain Megan Jones for their heartfelt input. I would especially like to congratulate Olivia Walker for her excellent special presentation about the school trip to Vimy Ridge.  It was a wonderful way to recognize and acknowledge the effort made by the students, the school faculty, and the several municipal sponsors who made this unique trip possible. (Congratulations Olivia.  You made your fellow participants and our entire community very proud!) It is indeed wonderful to live in (to borrow Diane Hutchings’ phrase) a small community with such a big heart. Thank you all.

David Bruce Johnson, Lieutenant Colonel (retired)
