From A to Z



 Imprimer   Envoyer 

Mme Writes has finally learned the alphabet, so here's the news, from A to Z!

CHURCHES
Anglican: On Monday, June 6, at 3 p.m. is a holy communion at the St. Paul's Rest Home in Bury. On Sunday, June 12, at 10:30 a.m. is a service in Bury. That's besides the Messy Church and Ecumenical Service described below. Info: 819-239-6902.

Also, that's not mentioning The Rev. Canon W. Lynn Dillabough's farewell party. That's right, she will be leaving the area for a new job as pastor of the St. Paul's Brockville Church in Brockville, Ontario. "I'll miss the people, the people, the people," she said. "I'm sad to go, but this is a very good move for me." But her car will probably not miss doing the 500-plus kilometres per week she's been traveling around the various points of her parish here, known as The Deanery of Saint Francis, which extends from Danville to Bury and beyond.

Her last day on the job will be at the June 26th Sunday service in Danville, where there is planned a farewell party for her at 2:30 p.m.

Dillabough has been in the Townships for six years, but part of her will stay on, in a sense. She plans to continue writing the "Opening to the Spirit" column in the Record, along with her three co-authors. But first, before her move, she expects to "sleep deeply for several nights." That's known as a vacation.

Baptist: In Sawyerville, the worship service is at 9 a.m. in French, and 11 a.m. in English. Sunday school is at 10 a.m. in English and French. Info: 819-239-8818.

Messy Church. The last Messy Church for the summer is on Tuesday, June 7, at 5:15 p.m., at the St. Paul's Anglican Church in Bury. It's a joint United-Anglican initiative for families with children under 12. Story-teller Lynn Dillabough, worship leader Tami Spires, and chef Violet Lister will offer stories, crafts, food and fun. This week is featured the story of the woman at the well, and running water. Dinner is provided free of charge, but please call 819-239-6902 in advance to help the chef know how much food to prepare.

After this one, the next Messy Church will be on Tuesday, September 6.

United: Services are at 9:30 a.m. in Cookshire and 11 a.m. in Sawyerville. Info: 819-889-2838 (listen to message). Planning ahead, a special anniversary service is planned for the East Clifton United Church on Sunday, June 19, at 10:30 a.m. It's to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the little church on Route 253. After the service, a luncheon is to be in the Loisir St-Isidore d'Auckland hall, 36 rue Principal in St-Isidore-de-Clifton. All are welcome.

CONCERT CLASSIQUE
Classical music comes once again to Cookshire, at the Trinity United Church, 190 Main Street. The concert features Marie-Michelle Raby on piano, Anne-Marie Leblanc on cello, and Myriam Genest-Denis on flute. The date: Saturday, June 11, at 7:30 p.m. It's a benefit concert for the Foundation of the CSSS du Haut-Saint-François. Tickets are $20 each, and $10 for ages 12 or under. Reserve your tickets now at 819-875-5697.

FOSS HOUSE OPENS
The Eaton Corner Museum news is that the Foss House will be open this summer. "Hats off to the dedicated volunteer crew that have made it a lovely space for temporary exhibits, meetings, and workshops," said the museum's secretary Jackie Hyman. The main displays and archives re-open on Saturday, June 11. The hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. In June, the museum is open weekends only. In July and August, it will be open Wednesday through Sunday. In September, it's back to weekends only. In October to May, visits are by appointment.

FOUNDERS' DAY
The Bury Historical Society is hosting their annual Bury Founders' Day on Sunday, June 5, at the 175th Anniversary Gazebo in Memorial Park.

An Ecumenical Service begins the day at 11:30 a.m. with Father Daniel Gilbert of the Catholic Community of Saint-François-de-Laval and Rev. Lynn Dillabough of the Anglican Deanery of St. Francis.

It will be followed by a picnic at 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. A canteen will offer free ice cream for the kids. Bring your own picnic lunch, or buy it at the canteen.

At 1:30 p.m., an historian will speak, and at 2 p.m. will be a rhythm and blues jazz concert with the Sylvain Daigneault Quartet.

All the activities are free of charge, courtesy of the Bury Historical and Heritage Society. All are welcome. In case of rain, the event will be indoors, at the Armoury Community Centre. All are welcome.

ISLAND BROOK SALE
A garage and plant sale is planned for Saturday, June 4, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Island Brook along Route 212, at the Newport Municipal Hall or the Multifunctional Pavilion. Info: Francine Rouleau at 819-875-3895.

SAWYERVILLE HOTEL
Changes are afoot at the Sawyerville Hotel. It's closed for renovations, but the new owner, Jean-Sébastien Bachand, promises it will re-open on June 21st. Will it be an ashram? No, he says. It's a hotel. It will be a hotel. And for more details, we must wait until June 21st.

VILLAGE MARKET
Last call: Reserve your kiosk at the 2016 Sawyerville Village Market situated at the Sawyerville Community Garden, 90 Randboro Road. It's planned for Saturday mornings, July to September.
Info: chantalbolduc99@bell.net or 819-889-3196.
