Winter is in the air these days at the Pen-y-bryn Golf Club in Bury. But - surprise! Also in the air are the appetizing aromas of Australian vegetable soup, meat loaf, potatoes and vegetables, topped off by chocolate cake.

Yum. That's what you'll be having for lunch on Friday, November 2, if you're in the new Meals on Wheels program in Bury.
Why new? After several years, our good friends at the Bury General Store reluctantly relinquished their responsibility for the Meals on Wheels program in June, and someone new has just shouldered it.

That someone is Jody Davis, of the Pen-y-bryn Golf Club Restaurant at 307 Golf Street in Bury. (Pen-y-bryn means Top of the Hill in Welsh. How apt!)

Jody has been operating the restaurant only since last May, but under her belt she has more than 15 years of experience in the restaurant business. You may have seen her at the Green Lantern, the Craig, or the Rotisserie in East Angus.

How is it working out? "I'm having pretty good luck with it, actually," she said. "It's the only restaurant in Bury, and it's a nice place to have coffee and pie or whatever. Or pizza. Or breakfast. It's open to the public, not just to golfers."
Building on her great start, she's planning to keep the restaurant open this winter. Starting October 25, the Pen-y-bryn Golf Club Restaurant will be open four days a week, Thursday to Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Questions? Call Jody at 819-872-3488, Thursday to Sunday. Or just drop in.

If you have trouble getting out to the restaurant, maybe the Meals on Wheels program is for you. It delivers a hot lunch to your home every Friday for only $7.50. Frozen meals for $5 each are also available upon request.

Who is eligible to receive the service? Anyone aged 65-plus who is living at home. Or anyone under 65 who has difficulties due to such problems as illness, grieving, depression, injury, solitude or convalescence (subject to approval).
How do you register? Just call the CAB at 819-560-8540 (option 9) or email The Meals on Whe

ls coordinator will meet with you. She will explain how the service works and fill out a short registration form. Then she will inform the provider of the meals - the Pen-y-bryn Golf Club Restaurant in Bury or the Café Central in Sawyerville.

That sets the wheels in action, and to your door will come a hot lunch every Friday between 11 a.m. and noon, unless you phone the restaurant two days in advance to cancel the order.

Yum. A welcome break from cooking for yourself!

The Volunteer Action Centre (Centre d'action bénévole du Haut-Saint-François - CAB) organizes the Meals on Wheels program in various municipalities, including Bury and Sawyerville. The CAB also gives the service provider $1.75 per meal, to help cover the cost of transportation.

Reminder - The new Viactive movement group in Cookshire starts Wednesday October 24, at 10 a.m. Anyone aged 50-plus is invited for an hour of easy exercises. Persons with limited mobility can even do them while sitting on a chair. Viactive is free, and it's fun! Come to the Centre de Loisirs Cookshire at 75 Castonguay Street, just off Principale Street East. Serena Wintle will lead the exercises, assisted by Martha Levesque. Bring a long scarf with you, as a stretching aid. Info: 819-560-8540 (option 9) or

Caregivers of persons with Alzheimer's disease may feel guilty. Such feelings come with the territory, especially when facing difficult decisions about care. Understanding and Overcoming Feelings of Guilt is the topic of a workshop by phone, organized by the Care-Ring Voice Network and hosted by the Alzheimer Society of Montreal. It's planned for Friday, October 26, at 10 a.m. Register quickly. Call 1-866-396-2433, email, or visit

Shingles. But not the roofing variety!

This kind of shingles, aka herpes zoster, features a painful, blistering skin rash, thanks to the same virus that causes chickenpox. The first symptom is usually one-sided pain, tingling, or burning. It's often severe and it's always memorable.

This is the topic of an upcoming videoconference. When? On Wednesday, November 7, at 10 a.m. to 12 noon. Where? At the Eaton Valley Community Learning Centre, situated at the far end of the Pope Memorial School in Bury.
Who? It's brought to us by the CHSSN Community Health Education Program (CHEP), and is hosted by Townshippers' Association. Financial support comes from Health Canada through the McGill Training and Retention of Health Professionals Project.
