Anticipation of the income tax season. Now that's something to warm the February heart!

If the prospect of supporting our governments and their various enterprises doesn't do it, just think of the services we receive. I've heard it said that Quebec's social safety net is one of the two best in Canada, and Canada's is the best in North America.

Now that our hearts are warm, here's another heartwarming prospect. It's the income tax clinics organized by the Centre d'action bénévole du Haut-Saint-François during the month of March.

Clinics are in seven different locations. The two in Bury and Sawyerville offer services in English. They prepare both Quebec and Canada income tax returns, at no cost, for people who are eligible.

To be eligible, a single person's annual income must be $20,000 or less. Income of a couple or a single parent must be $26,000 or less, plus $2,000 for each dependent child. Revenue must include no more than $1,000 in interest, and no income from rental or from self-employment.

The clinic at the Sawyerville Community Centre, 6 Church Street, is open Wednesdays in March, starting March 6, from 1 to 4 p.m. On March 13 and 20, it is also open from 6 to 8 p.m.

The clinic in Bury is also open Wednesdays, from 1 to 3 p.m., on March 13, 20 and 27. It's at the Eaton Valley Community Learning Centre, located at the Pope Memorial School, 523 Stokes Street.

Trained volunteers prepare the income tax returns. What do they need from you to do this? You need to take your T4 and Relevé 1 slips. If you earned interest on investments, you need to take your T5 or T3 slips. Finally, if you were a student, you need to take a T2202A form for the eligible tuition amount.

Also take any income tax forms that were mailed to you from the Quebec and Federal governments - anything that says on it "for income tax purposes."

Finally, don't forget your receipts. They could be for any medical expenses that were not reimbursed, as well as other eligible expenses such as a bus pass, daycare, charitable donations, arts and sports activities for children.

So just pack up your troubles, oops, your paperwork, go to the income tax clinic, and smile, smile, smile.

Warm up for Saint Patrick's Day with Irish Night. It's an evening of musical performances, singalongs and more. Coffee and snacks will be available. It's at the Bulwer Community Centre on Friday, March 8, at 7 p.m., and is an annual fundraiser for the Eaton Corner Museum. Entrance is $8 for adults, $4 for children. All are welcome. Info: Serena Wintle at 819-875-5210 or the Eaton Corner Museum at 819-875-5256.

As a fundraiser for the Pope Memorial Elementary School, a spaghetti supper is just the thing. Plan ahead for Friday, March 22, at 5-6 p.m. (first sitting) or 6-7 p.m. (second sitting). It's just $8 per person, or $25 per family (immediate family members). And of course it's at the Pope Memorial School, 523 Stokes Street, in Bury.

Midnight March 15 is the deadline for submissions to the Bulwer Purple Prose literary contest. Or rather, the anti-literary contest! Enter your first sentence to the worst novel ever, and laugh all the way to the awards supper on April 6, for the benefit of the Bulwer Community Centre. See the contest rules at or email
