Happy Summer!

 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Summer Solstice and the first day of summer, coming up June 21, right alongside Father’s Day. Then those two holidays that signal summer vacation and all the frenzy of activities afforded by our precious warm month. Notice that’s singular – one month. Because that’s about what we can expect of real heat. Enjoy it!


Canada lives in Bury, or at least Canada Day does. Already the celebrations are seriously in the works. The 88th annual parade and party are planned for Friday, June 26, and Saturday, June 27. The program begins Saturday evening with prizes for house decorations, children’s baseball, and music. And Saturday offers all the attractions one has come to expect and love, plus a circus workshop. The activities all sandwich the great big Canada Day Parade at noon, and culminate with fireworks at 10 p.m. Info: Jody Davis (amateur hour), 819-452-1197, or Linda Harper McMahon (parade), 819-872-1123.


The Sawyerville Community Garden is hosting a two workshops on the "creation de fermes forestières." They’re tree farms, my dictionary says. Yvan Perrault, owner of the Au jardin des noix farm is to lead the sessions that focus on the permaculture of edible wild northern plants. The workshops offer information, excursions, collection of plants, tasting, discussion and more.

They take place in two separate locations. On Wednesday, July 1, the workship is at 655 Dubé Road, Cookshire-Eaton. On Thursday, July 2, the rendezvous is at the Sawyerville Community Garden, 70 Randboro Road. Both workshops are at 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine, and are by reservation only. Maximum 20 persons. Fee: $30 for one day; $40 for two days.

Bring both walking shoes and rubber boots, notebook and pen, and basket, brown bags and knife. It’s a good chance to learn about forest farming and practice your French, all in one fell swoop. Info:, or 819-620-2898.


If you haven’t registered yet for one of the Stand Up programs that are slated to begin in September in Cookshire and Sawyerville, act now. The registration period is almost ended, and if at least 10 people do not register for each course, it cannot begin.

The program is a 12-week bilingual course designed to improve your balance and prevent falling. It is organized by the Centre d’action bénévole du Haut-Saint-François (Volunteer Action Centre). It is free of charge.

If you are interested in attending, call 819-560-8540 x 9 NOW. Then the kinesiologist will call you over the summer for a short evaluation by telephone.


Once you’re standing, take a step. Newport’s walking club welcomes newcomers. Come to the parking lot of the Municipal Hall in Island Brook at 1452 Route 212, every Tuesday and Thursday at 2 p.m.


It’s here and it’s almost all gone already. The 300 copies of the Health Passport have been flying out of the oven like hotcakes. It is a little pocket booklet you can take with you to the hospital or a medical appointment, with an English-French lexicon of important terms and phrases. To receive yours free of charge, call 819-560-8540 x 9, or email

And now it’s available on line, too, at Here’s how to find it. On the home page, click on “English.” Then click on “Referral.” Now scroll down to the “Needs to Fill” section. You will see a list of needs in alphabetical order. Click on “Language other than French.” (That’s mostly English, but who knows – maybe a few other languages are in the basket, too.) That last click will open a short list of seven resources. The fifth one is the “Health Passport.” Scroll down to it, and you will have three choices. You can “Click here to download a PDF version,” you can “Click here to read online,” or – surprise! – you can call 819-560-8540 x 9 for a print version.

While you’re on the Referrals page of the website, it’s a good opportunity to peruse resources on other topics, too. The list starts with “Addictions” and ends up at “Women: Support,” via a plethora of other needs, each with their own resources. Check it out! It’s in English.
