Hats Off



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

It's been a month since the last Rachel Writes, and I can find little to write about. To the east and the west of us, two big events. Hats off in mourning for the terrible oil tragedy in Lac Mégantic, and in respect for the resilience of that tight knit community. Hats in the air in celebration for Sherbrooke's Canada Games.

Here, here, in the Garden of Eden, by comparison, it's just hats on for dodging raindrops and getting the hay in. I hear no great waves of celebration, and no great groundswell of complaints. It's fundraising and sending firefighters to Lac Mégantic. It's volunteering for the Canada Games. It's going to gardening workshops at the Eaton Corner Museum and getting ready for the Cookshire Fair. It's hosting the Quebec-wide 4-H rally. It's doing all the usual summer chores.

In all, it's been quiet here. But it's also been quite a strenuous summer, emotionally. That Lac Mégantic explosion has left a hole in our hearts and a shadow over us. How many new oil disasters have to happen before we collectively, on this small planet, break our fossil fuel addiction?

EATON CORNER MUSEUM

One last pearl goes on this summer's string of gardening workshops offered by the Eaton Corner Museum. It's by Chantal Parent who had a booth at the Old Fashioned Day on August 4. She's a herboriste-thérapeute (H.t.a.).Following up on her August 10th workshop, Introduction to Medicinal Plants, she is offering a workshop on Saturday August 24 on preparing ointments from medicinal plants. It's 9 a.m. to noon at the Eaton Corner Museum.

It will be in French, but Jackie Hyman says translation help will be available. Places are limited. Call the Museum at 819-875-5256 to register in advance. And Jackie says to keep an eye out for more workshops on preserving seeds and global seed security in September.

And also we can look forward to the grand opening of the new museum exhibit in September.

T-DAY
Townshippers' Day will be on our doorstep this year, at the Bishop's College School (BCS). It's the 34th annual T-Day, and it's on Saturday, September 14. It's a cultural festival and information fair combined, which "celebrates the heritage, vitality and creativity of the Eastern Townships English-speaking community," in Townshippers' Association's words.
Exhibitors, volunteers, sponsors and silent auction donors are all welcome. For registration and event information, visit www.tday.ca. or contact Kate Holbrook at Townshippers' Association's Montérégie-East office, 450-242-4421 (toll free 1-877-242-4421) or kw@townshippers.qc.ca.
