The flu clinic put on by the Shore Drive Community Development Association went very well with many people attending.

Although there is still some debate about getting a flu shot, it seems the very young and the elderly benefit most from such shots, as well as those with chronic illnesses.

Practices are ongoing for the Living Christmas Tree performance (Monday evenings, I believe). If you are interested in becoming a "branch" of the tree, I am sure you would be most welcome to join.

***

The Remembrance Day church service will be held at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Fox River at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11. Wreath laying will follow at the war memorial site, unless it is extremely cold or snowing, which would result in the gathering taking place at the church.

Sandwiches, sweets will be available at the FPW fire hall following the wreath-laying ceremony. If you wish to lay a wreath, please call or message Gail Wagstaff no later than Thursday, Nov. 8.

If you have any items of winter clothing in good condition that you no longer need, please consider donating to the Shop My Closet event, which is hosted by the Shore Drive Association.

Items can be dropped off at Barb Aris's or Sharon Benjamin's up to the afternoon of Nov. 14. People are welcome to attend the event on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 9 a.m. to noon. Jackets, coats, sweaters, boots and more will be available, free of cost.

Our weather has been quite chilly. Soon, the ground will be white and thoughts will turn towards skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, shovelling, winter driving, and Christmas!
