This Saturday, April 13, is the Sawyerville 4-H Alumni Day, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Sawyerville Community Centre. Past and present members are invited to bring photos, memorabilia and memories. This year marks the 100th anniversary of 4-H in Canada, and the Sawyerville Club members are trying to assemble as much information as possible about the Club.

This news comes from the Neil and Maureen Burns family. They are well connected. Their sons Matthew, 18, and Cameron, 16, are both on the Sawyerville 4-H executive. Matthew, in fact, is president.

When I spoke with Maureen by phone, she had in her hand three five-inch mauve award ribbons from the "Sawyerville Farmers' Club Calf Competition and Picnic Day." The oldest one is dated August 16, 1926, and the two others are from 1927 and 1929. They were found in what used to be Duncan Eastman's house, she said.

Looking at the ribbons, and listening to anecdotes from some seniors in the area, the Burns say it appears that the Sawyerville club has been in existence since the mid 1920s. "But in those days, it wouldn't have been called a 4-H Club yet. It would have been called a ‘calf club'," said Maureen.

So the invitation is to help the Calf Club - and 4-H Club - members research their club's history. Either objects or stories are welcome. Info: 819-875-3656.

This Sunday, April 14, is the Eaton Corner Museum's annual spring brunch. The place to be is the Bulwer Community Centre, and the time to be there is between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. On the plates will be pancakes with maple syrup, scrambled eggs, baked beans, scalloped potatoes, fruit, desserts, juice, tea and coffee. "All homemade. All delicious," said Secretary Jackie Hyman.

The brunch ticket is just $10/person, or $6/child. It is a benefit for the Eaton Corner Museum, and an excellent opportunity for visiting with friends and neighbours.

This spring, the Eaton Corner Museum is planning to put in Heritage Gardens around the museum buildings and behind the Foss House, reports Jackie. She and Chantal Bolduc are researching old varieties of vegetables, herbs, flowers, and fruits that would have been grown by homesteaders in the 1800s.

That's what the Museum's second monthly "Chronicles" says. They invite people in the community to get involved in this project. And one already has stepped into the garden, so to speak. On Saturday morning, May 4, Brian Creelman of Seeds for Food will be offering a workshop about starting and transplanting seedlings. This is the first of a series of Saturday workshops about gardening for the general public. A free-will donation will be asked. Space is limited so register in advance by calling the Eaton Corner Museum at 819-875-5256.

The Bulwer Community Centre on Jordan Hill Road once again offers 500 Card Parties. The dates are Thursday April 18 and May 2, and the time is 2 p.m. Card playing is followed by a light lunch and distribution of prizes. Admission: $5. All are welcome. For Bulwer Community Centre info, please leave a message and return phone number at 819-875-3452.

A person in psychiatric crisis poses a danger to himself or others: The court can order him to go through a psychiatric evaluation even if he refuses. In certain cases the court can also order a patient to remain in the hospital for an extended period for observation. It is often the police who take the person to the hospital, and the Care-Ring Voice Network has organized a telephone learning session about the role of the police when court orders become necessary. Police officer Michael Arruda will speak about Understanding Court Orders and How the Police Can Help.

AMI Quebec (Action on Mental Illness) hosts this presentation by phone on Wednesday, April 17, at 7 p.m. The session is confidential, but participants must register as members of the Care-Ring Voice Network at
