I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and that 2018 is a healthy, happy year for all of you.

The FPW Fire Department hosted a New Year's Day Levee, which was enjoyed by all. Rick's seafood chowder was delicious. It was nice to see residents out and enjoying each other’s company.

Across Nova Scotia some brave souls participate in a Polar Bear dip to usher in the New Year. We had our very own Polar Bear in Port Greville this year. Sylvia McCully called me to say that she had fulfilled a lifelong dream by immersing herself in the frigid water off Port Greville beach. Well done, Sylvia!

The Chignecto Glooscap Snowmobile Association will be holding its annual soup and chowder supper on Saturday, Jan. 20 at the FPW Fire Hall from 4:30-6 p.m. Take -outs are available from 4-4:30 p.m. Featured on the menu are: beef and garden vegetable soup, chicken vegetable soup, corn chowder, rolls, sweets, tea, coffee, etc. The cost will be $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12 years of age. Proceeds go to the ongoing maintenance and development of trails in the Chignecto Isthmus area.

The weather has been abnormally cold for this time of year with very little snow to date. By the time of this column being published, it is expected that the weather will feature more typical temperatures.

I enjoyed watching the world junior hockey games and was excited to see Canada win the gold medal.

The Foxy Lady is out of news for now. Have a great week, everyone.
