Northumberland Links hosts Friday night social golf


Northumberland Links held the first Friday night social on July 10 with a field of 51 golfers.

The weather was great and a good time was had by all.

Winners were as follows:

First – Alex Sprague, Byron Wilson, Debbie McGee and Donna Pitts.

Second – Terry Stewart, Paul Boudreau, Brent McCully and Mary Eve Lamauren.

Winner of the 50-50 draw was Reg Brown.

Clyde and Elaine Ashley of Dutch Settlement were overnight guests on Saturday and Sunday with Ivan and Wilma Logan. They all enjoyed supper on Sunday at Nellie’s in Port Howe. The special was called Millie’s Mess and from all reports it was very tasty.

Garden Jamieson’s cousin on his mother’s side visited. Freddie Vonnell has lived in the west for 32 years. His sister, Christie, from Truro accompanied him.

Eileen celebrated a birthday and she and Gordon had their 64th wedding anniversary. Marg Parks and Roy Jamieson were callers.

Other visitors included Christopher Rasmussen, Crystal, Emma, Fin and Nora Jane (only four days old), Bruce O’Hearn, Peter Reid, Sandra Rushton and Caleb and Liam Briggs.

Some Pointers to Remember

Once all villagers decided to pray for rain. On the day of prayer all the people gathered, but only one boy came with an umbrella. That’s faith.

When you throw a baby in the air, she laughs because she knows you will catch her. That’s faith.

Every night we go to bed without any assurance of being alive the next morning, but still set the alarm to wake up. That’s hope.

We plan big things for tomorrow in spite of zero knowledge of the future. That’s confidence.

We see the world suffering, but still get married. That’s love.

On an old man’s shirt was written a sentence. “I am 60 years old…I am sweet 16 with 40 years experience. That’s attitude.

Have a happy day.
