The effects of Dorian are still being felt. Trucks going with brush on them and little piles of wood in a lot of yards - except of course the vacant house on the corner of Elm and James Street. Trees down on both streets and the neighbours cleaned up what fell in their yards, but I have no idea when that mess will be cleaned up.

The roast beef take-out supper at the Baptist church was good.

Cynthia’s Musical Christmas event is now scheduled, and the dates are Dec 13 and 14. Tickets will be on sale at Oxford Home Hardware. This is always quite an extravaganza, but I have no idea what the ticket price is yet.

I had a call (imagine that) and the Pugwash Curling Club is hosting an open house from Oct. 21 to 24 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., so go check that out and try your hand at throwing a rock

On Thursday morning, Oct. 3, the Oxford Walking Club struck out on the trail and turned onto the Bunny Trail. What a great walk and just when you thought you might like to rest your legs there was a lovely bench (thanks to Al & Maxine) so I promptly availed myself.

I see our Walking Club bench in place as well out on the main trail. And it is called the Bunny Trail because from the air it looks like a bunny sitting down.

The guys that purchased the Winnifred Davis house have done a bang-up job cleaning up the yard and straightening up the front porch.

On Oct. 20, Fraser Newcombe and his crew are back with a whole new show. We are offering this in the afternoon so should be really easy for everyone to attend and lots of parking as church will be over.

The 21st is the big event for October – election day. I don’t care who you vote for but vote, it’s so important.

Funny the things one remembers...Howard Forest lived almost a mile from us when I was a kid and one winter he was without a vehicle, so he got out the horse and sleigh.

I don’t remember them going to Conns Mills, but I remember them heading back to take the future wife back home. She lived in the Jersey Woods and they went by about the same time every Sunday so I always watched for that. Not too many vehicles on our road in the winter so I looked forward to whatever went by.

All for this time. If you have news, call 902-447-3040.
