It’s hard to believe August is here. I warned everyone it would be her sooner than expected.
I have no news, well maybe a little bit. Big doings around here on July 28 as Oxford frozen foods threw a major bash.
It started with cooking at the gazebo with the Kilted Chef and cold blueberry soup and everything went up from there.
Mayor Trish Stewart made her proclamation that the 28th was Oxford Frozen Foods day. The redhead from the blueberry ad was the chef's helper, but she got a break occasionally as Mayor Stewart lent a hand as did Bill Casey and Tory Rushton.
I made the rounds on the Exhibition grounds and there were a lot of displays and entertainment and games of chance. The Natalie MacMaster concert in Springhill was a smashing success and the fireworks from our ballfield we're as good as if not better than Disney world; or so I was told. There was a big fundraiser for Flute Wood at the Legion as well and it was hugely successful. Sunday was clean up and rest up day.
Real estate is still on the move around here as three houses across town sold. Good to see. One of the places that sold was the old bottling plant. Another place with awesome stories if it could talk.
The tickets for Dougie Patriquin's concert are going very good. Remember I have limited seating at the Capitol Theatre.
