tion," said John Cathrae, Sussex's chief financial officer. "Typically the suites are occupied by one person each. Maybe 10 per cent might be occupied by couples ... (But) there's nothing to say that more couples couldn't live in there." The units will be anywhere from 350 square feet for studio suites to more than 1,000 square feet for those with two bedrooms. "We haven't determined a price range yet," Cathrae said, but "it's going to be in the general range of what retirement homes are in other markets. You're going to start at under $3,000 (a month)." Two-bedroom units "could go $5,000 or even more," he added. "And that's with a good

reasonable service package," Simourd said. "It depends on which level of service they're getting, (plus) the basic rent. Independent seniors don't pay as much because they don't necessarily need a lot of services." Cathrae stressed pricing for the suites will be "based on the market and what people can afford to pay in Brighton. "We'll figure what the mix is when we've done our second stage of planning," he said. "You don't even really fix your prices until a few months before opening." Which is still two years away, Simourd said. The Ottawa company is involved in 17 residences in Ontario, B.C., Alberta and the United States, Cathrae said. The company "investigated the market careful-

ly" before choosing to build in Brighton, Simourd said. "We think it's the right place to build. There's a huge pent-up demand ... for seniors who aren't serviced with the kind of facility we plan to build." The proposed residence "really appeals to anybody who wants to stay in their community" and remain active in local organizations and take part in local activities, Cathrae said. "It's a big deal for people to not have to move away." "We're happy to be involved in that type of project where we're able to enable people in Brighton to continue to enjoy that area, and stay close to their family and friends," said Chris Donegan, chief executive officer of 8597685 Canada Inc.

JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com Brighton - One of the options council has been presented to create more space for physicians at the municipality's health services centre is to find another location for one of the tenants, YMCA Northumberland. But "right now there is no alternative space," says its chief executive officer, Eunice Kirkpatrick. "I have looked around the Brighton community and there is really not suitable space that we could find." The YMCA currently occupies close to 5,000 square feet at the centre "and we want to maintain that, and increase our footprint if we could," she said, "because we are seeing a steady growth in Brighton." Council narrowly rejected a motion to have staff negotiate with the YMCA to reduce its foot-

print by 2,000 square feet. "This certainly was a surprise to us that this was rolled into open council," Kirkpatrick said. Mayor Mark Walas, who voted against the motion, said the municipality does need to find space for a physician who is coming to Brighton in April 2019 but it also has to understand the role of the YMCA in the community and its needs, along with those of the family health team. He said the YMCA "should be very concerned" by the discussion that took place at council June 25. The option of reducing the YMCA's presence, rejected for now, "wouldn't be ideal," Kirkpatrick said. "In order for us to be able to serve quality programming and a complement of programming, we would want to maintain the space that we have, plus add on space if need be." The YMCA uses about

YMCA Northumberland chief executive officer Eunice Kirkpatrick says Brighton's facility should expand based on demand, not shrink. 1,000 square feet for group fitness, which includes classes for yoga and meditation, and it's "very, very popular," Kirkpatrick said. Around 3,000 square feet is taken up with conditioning equipment.

There's also a room for resistance training, another one with leg machines, and change rooms. What YMCA offers in Brighton "is very, very rare to find something like that in a small rural community."

Its current five-year lease expires the end of October. The municipality and the YMCA have tried to arrange for a closed meeting to discuss the various options but no date has been set thus far, Kirkpatrick

said. "I would like to sit down with the municipality and work out the best option where it's a win-win for the whole community," taking into consideration both its health-care needs and its health and wellness needs. It has to be "a sustainable model for all of us," Kirkpatrick added. The YMCA has done "a tremendous job" in the 15 years it's been in Brighton and it's "a great attraction" for newcomers, Kirkpatrick said. "I do feel it's an essential service." Coun. Brian Ostrander, who made the motion to reduce the YMCA's presence, said his "foremost" concern is to accommodate doctors at the health services centre. What the municipality should do "from a strategic level" is build a fitness centre with room to add a swimming pool at some point.

Graduates leave school they called home last 4 years JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com

Brighton - More than 200 Blue Dragons have flown their den, most to pursue an education at a higher level, although some will enter the workforce right away or even return for one more year at East Northumberland Secondary School. Seeing them off were their families, teachers, and municipal and school board officials who gathered at the school for the graduation ceremonies held on June 28. "Now they will go off and make their own path, joining the ranks of the ENSS alumni before them who proudly carry on the tradition of excellence that is the heart and soul of this school," Charlotte Filip said in her last remarks as principal before taking on a new role with the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board. "You are about to enter what some may call real life," whether it's college, university or work. "The funny thing about real life is that there are no

longer learning goals and success criteria written on the board to guide you. Learning becomes more difficult to quantify and most real life tests are unannounced, especially those tests involving your character, values, and understanding of those around you." Her advice to the graduates was to keep it simple: "Be humble. Work hard. And, most importantly, be kind. Think about your intentions in all that you do, as they will have an effect on those around you." Filip also encouraged the students "to dream big, as dreams will help you to do great things, large and small. Continue to learn and don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. Take responsibility for your successes and for your failures. Don't give up, practice resiliency." "School here was not just a place of learning and development, it was a place of family, a second home for all of us," valedictorian Benjamin Hughes said. There is "an end to all good things," but the friendships the students

He thanked the school's teachers for having helped the students become adults and leaving "an everlasting impression" on their hearts. "We are ready to start our lives, and become who we really are," Hughes said. Hughes was one of four graduates who earned four or more awards. His were

the Drama Award, Justin House Memorial Award, Northumberland Players Youth Award and the Socratic Prize. Lauren Draaistra also won a Drama Award as well as six others: the Amanda James Memorial Award, Brighton Rotary Club Service Above Self Award, Canadian Federation of University Women (Northumberland branch), ENSS Stage Production Award, Lou Rinaldi MPP Citizenship Award and the

Holly Tetzlaff took home six awards: Student Government Spirit Scholarship, Trinity-St. Andrew's United Church Clothing Depot Bursary, Brian Todd Community Service Award, Community Women's Institute Award, OSSWTF District 14 Excellence in Education Award, and The Principal's Award for Student Leadership. Jonathan Fawcett re-

ceived five awards: Pris De Competence En Immersion Tardive, Baxter Scholarship for Science Award, Brighton Lions Award, Claude Thompson Mathematics Award and the Governor General's Award.

Brighton council candidate says HR experience taught him to listen to people's concerns JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com Brighton - Mark Bateman says his 16 years' experience working in human resources will serve him well as a member of Brighton council. Those years taught him to listen to what people have to say and how to respond to the issues they raise. "They just want an answer," he said. "The only time you let them down is if you don't get back to them." They might not like the answer you give them after you've looked into the matter, but "if it's well-thoughtout, you've done your due diligence, they'll respect that." It's the same lesson he's learned as a member of the Brighton Minor Hockey Association executive, where he's currently serving a twoyear term as president. "Brighton is one of the nicest communities around," he said. "I know it's not perfect, I don't think any town is, but I think we could do better. And I want to be part of what makes it better." Bateman, a production supervisor at Hanon Systems in Belleville, plans to run "a WE campaign - without ego," the same way he intends to conduct himself as a councillor should he get elected. That's how council members should operate. They won't all think alike - "that's the last thing you want," because different ideas make for "a better solution" - but once a matter is decided, it should have the full support of council, he said.

"From what I've read, seen and heard from people, we don't always have that and we need to get back to that," said Bateman, who spoke in favour of a "cohesive council. "I want to be part of that team that's rowing in the same direction." The 54-year-old Bateman, who's married and has five children, expressed concern with the exodus of staff. "There has to be a reason we're losing our top people," he said. He suspects the problem lies with council interference and he has a remedy: "Don't get involved where you're not supposed to get involved as a councillor, and get involved where you're supposed to get involved." There's a cost to recruiting new employees when "you have too much turnover," Bateman said, and it goes beyond the expense of recruitment. "You're losing a knowledge base that you might not be able to replace no matter

who you recruit." Bateman said council also has "to get out of this trap" of making decisions at the 11th hour, as happened recently when it chose a supplementary sewage treatment system and opted to keep the railway crossing on Lawson Settlement Road open. Council members should have been "a year-and-a-half quicker" in deciding what to do, he said.

Brighton will continue to grow but it's not just council but all its residents who will shape its future, Bateman said. They'll tell us what they want to see happen, "our job is to listen."

Play safe this summer

northumberlandnews.com

While the hazy, lazy days of summer are now upon us, it's important to be aware of the potential dangers of warm-weather activities - especially on the water. As temperatures rise, countless Northumberland residents and visitors will flock to our many waterways, attractions and outdoor spaces. And while we certainly should not let the risks prevent us from enjoying what our wonderful region has to offer, it's wise to keep safety in mind to prevent summer fun from turning to tragedy. During National Fishing Week, the Canadian Safe Boating Council (CSBC) is reminding anglers that wearing your life-jacket is even more important than wearing your lucky fishing hat. "But they do share one trait," says the CSBC. "They both have to be worn to be effective!" According to the council and the Lifesaving Society, 80 per cent of recreational boaters who drown each and every year in Canada were not wearing a life-jacket or personal flotation device (PFD). Most of these drownings occur in small, open powerboats, says the CSBC, accounting for 60 per cent of these preventable deaths. A majority of these victims were males between the ages of 19 and 35, out for a day of fishing. Many of those who don't wear their life-jackets or PFDs believe that, since they are good swimmers, having them on board and within easy reach is good enough. But a life-jacket stored under a seat or up in the bow will be of no help when the unexpected happens, like falling overboard while trying to net the catch. Many of today's anglers are delighted with the models that are designed especially to suit their needs, says the CSBC. They're rugged, allow for full freedom of movement to cast and are constructed with lots of pockets for gear. Some even come equipped with an attachment from which to hang a landing net. The council advises that when choosing a life-jacket, anglers should also check the label to make sure it is Transport Canada approved, is the correct size and fits snugly. Today, many anglers choose to wear an inflatable life-jacket because they are cool, fully adjustable and provide full arm motion. These are available in both manual and auto-inflate models, which make them extremely versatile. The law states that these must be worn to be legal, rather than just be kept in the boat. Also, they are only legal where the wearer is 16 years of age or older. For more info on boating safety, visit www.csbc.ca. General summer safety tips can be found at canadasafetycouncil.org.

Factories free of people not problem-free Transition to new economy will cause upheaval, writes Campbell This paragraph stood out in a recent Wall Street Journal article about Elon Musk, the billionaire who hopes to mass produce an electric car. "He began talking about 'the machine that builds the machine' and envisioning a people-free factory that could churn out cars at a rate only slowed by air resistance." Is this not troubling? True, the auto industry has been headed down this path for some time, toward a manufacturing process

JOHN CAMPBELL Column so automated it removes the human element altogether. So, while the idea of people-free workplaces is hardly revelatory, being reminded of that corporate compulsion reawakened concerns about the changes currently happening in a wholesale fashion: The transition to a new economy will cause enormous social upheaval. What is to become of all

the people whose lives are upended by the loss of employment? How many truly believe that in a transformed world new jobs will be created in sufficient numbers to help the millions displaced? It doesn't seem possible; certainly there is no confidence new opportunities for employment will pay as well, generally speaking, as those in the past. Governments concern themselves with reducing the carbon footprint of industries because of the impact their activities have on the environment. They should be equally attentive to the impact businesses who reduce their human footprint are having on society. They are the ones that will have to deal with the

consequences, not businesses. Until, that is, the number of people earning wages shrinks to the point where sales plummet and with them the worth of stocks, igniting shareholder outrage. It is only then corporations will become aware of the bigger picture and acquire a social conscience, and decide to work with governments in managing change that's good for all people. Their salvation, otherwise, is for a new industry to spring forth that manufactures consumers programmed to buy, buy, buy. They wouldn't, would they? – John Campbell is a reporter with the Brighton Independent.

Swing Bridge opening delayed to September, Parks Canada reports Complications with the hydraulics systems and other issues will delay the opening of the Brighton Road Swing Bridge to vehicle traffic for another two months. In a July 4 press release, Parks Canada reports the bridge, located along the Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site, will remain closed until early September. This closure is to facilitate the replacement of the existing swing bridge with a new, two-lane swing bridge and pedestrian sidewalk. According to Parks Canada, the bridge opening has been delayed due to complications with the subcontractors' completion of hydraulics systems and fabrication issues with key mechanical elements. The bridge itself has been fabricated and lifted into place, bridge abutments and centre pier have been completed, the southeast retaining wall constructed, drainage struc-

tures have been installed, all electrical duct banks have been placed, and the bridge operator's kiosk has been built. The release notes within the next two weeks, a concrete pad will be poured adjacent to the parking area, the new operator's kiosk will be installed and new concrete stairs leading to the canal will be poured. The span drive cylinder, the main hydraulic component that helps to move the bridge, will be fabricated and ready for installation, in addition to other functional mechanical components. About the project Parks Canada has announced more than $615 million in investments into the locks, dams, bridges and other infrastructure along the Trent-Severn Waterway. This scale of investment hasn't happened since the waterway was originally constructed, between 98 and 185 years ago. The Brighton Road

The opening of the refurbished Brighton Road Swing Bridge to vehicle traffic has been delayed to early September, Parks Canada reports. Swing Bridge spans the Murray Canal on County Road 64, connecting Prince Edward County and the municipality of Quinte West. The bridge is being replaced with a new two-lane swing bridge that will also have a pedestrian sidewalk, a full highway load rating eliminating the current restrictions for emergency and service vehicles, and upgraded

mechanical and electrical features. The bridge was fabricated offsite and transported to the site in sections for reassembly. The bridge abutments and centre pier are being rehabilitated to accommodate the new bridge.

Brighton YMCA must stay where it is Dear Editor: Closing the Brighton YMCA to make room for physician offices is counterproductive and unnecessary. Attracting physicians to this area is an important goal; however I feel very strongly that the health and wellness of our community depends on our local YMCA. My husband and I are entering our senior years, and as we both live active lifestyles, we were optimistic that we would be able to use the local YMCA as both a source of exercise and social engagement. I know that we are not alone. Many other local residents our age depend on the "Y" for wellness and physical activity but also, and perhaps more importantly, a sense of community and connection. I am concerned that if the YMCA is closed and

not given an alternative location that nothing else will open to fulfil these needs. The YMCA is uniquely suited to provide physical activity and wellness opportunities to seniors. I understand this area is in desperate need of physicians, and I welcome doctors interested in coming to this area; that being said, I remain concerned that if the Y closes to make room for their practices that more harm than good will result. The Y is currently in an ideal location and, although I am not aware of any particular spaces, I don't think it's unreasonable to presume the doctors could establish their practices in alternative locations. Keep the Brighton YMCA where it is. Laura Daniels

Brighton's Own: From north to south, a homesteader at heart

northumberlandnews.com

VIC SCHUKOV From the get-go, Andrew Vokes was destined to be a naturalist and a conservationist. He was born in Timmins and raised in New Liskeard. At 18, he attended Guelph University to get his bachelor of science in natural resources management through the school of agriculture. During school and after graduation, he planted trees in north central Ontario for a company based out of Wawa. "I then did some shepherding for a few summers for the Ministry of Natural Resources. After they planted trees, they would use sheep (through a government initiative) to eliminate the competition." (I told Andrew that he was my very first shepherd, then asked him if he had a staff.) He replied, smiling, "Yes. I did have a crook. In our first year, I tended 173 sheep. By the third summer, we had over 600." At 25, Vokes briefly attended Sir Sandford Fleming College pursuing a diploma in geographic information systems (GIS) to complement his earlier degree work. His plan, all along was to eventually settle in the municipality of Brighton as his family

VIC SCHUKOV Column on his maternal side had a farm in Codrington. In the meantime, he went to work in Toronto in the IT profession for the next 13 years, three in government and 10 in an ad agency. "A recession precipitated my plan and I came to my family's farm in Codrington eight years ago, and I am still here. In my first year, I did a six-month internment outside of Hastings on an organic market garden farm, learning the ropes. Then I joined the Brighton Farmers Market in its second to last year, then Campbellford Market, then Codrington." Vokes grows all of his produce organically. He uses hand tools, and fertilizes strictly with compost. "I grow everything from A to Z, asparagus to zucchini, and tomatoes, peppers, beans, carrots, beets, squashes, cucumbers, potatoes, onions, cabbages, lettuces and radishes.

"I also do fermented food like sauerkraut and kombucha. Organic gardening is just something I really enjoy." Vokes' raison d'être borders very much on the philosophical: "I am basically a homesteader, preferring to be on the land. I am more of a producer than a consumer. I actually got in trouble a few times at the ad agency because I dislike consumerism. (Laughing.)" And as for settling in Brighton: "I was made here. It's in my bones, since my mother came from here. I am also a Mason at the local lodge." (Actually, he was the outgoing master the night before this interview.) I asked him if there were any differences between northern and southern Ontario small-town people. He smiled and said, "People are people. The only difference is one burns hardwood, the other burns softwood." Visit Andrew at Campbellford Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. And at Codrington Market on Sundays. – Brighton resident Vic Schukov is a longtime journalist and writer of biography books for everyday people; victorschukov@gmail.com.

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp

Ingredients

John Campbell/Metroland

Cathy and Howard McCann will receive visitors as part of the 2018 Garden Tour organized by Campbellford District Horticultural Society.

Tour of Trent Hills gardens an opportunity to see others' creativity at work JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com

Also new to the tour this year is Ferris Provincial Park and its stone walls that are more than 100 years old. Visitors will be encouraged to consider the possibilities of creating a stone feature in their gardens. A mainstay of the tour, Schoolhouse Gardens at Warkworth, is "very popular and has been for years, it brings bus tours from Toronto," Bennett said. Island Park Retirement Residence is again on the tour as a spot where people can enjoy light refreshments and take a washroom break. The tour will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine. "It doesn't matter how hot or cold it is," Bennett said. Passports are available at Glover's Market, Earth Angel, Caroline's Organics and Floral Designs, Campbellford Farmers' Market, Frantic Farms and Winker's Nook. The horticultural society has close to 60 members. It meets the first Monday of each month, except in January, July and August, when no meetings are held (although a garden party is held the second Monday in August).

Directions Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the fruit, toss the rhubarb, strawberries, 3/4 cup of the granulated sugar and the orange zest together in a large bowl. In a measuring cup, dissolve the cornstarch in the orange juice and then mix it into the fruit. Pour the mixture into an 8-by-11-inch baking dish and place it on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. For the topping, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the flour, the remaining 1/2 cup granulated sugar, the brown sugar, salt and oatmeal. With the mixer on low speed, add the butter and mix until the dry ingredients are moist and mixture is in crumbles. Sprinkle the topping over the fruit, covering it completely, and bake for 1 hour, until the fruit is bubbling and the topping is golden brown. Serve warm with ice cream.

There are seven sites on the self-guided tour, and the cost of a passport granting admission to each one is $12. The booklet includes a write-up on each location. All proceeds will be used to beautify Trent Hills, which the horticultural society assists with in various ways, such as maintaining flower beds at Entranceway Park, Picnic Island Park and the Clock Tower Cultural Centre. The event usually nets the organization $2,000, with well in excess of 100 passports sold each year, said Glenn Bennett, a director with the society, who organizes the tour. "We have some that have probably been (on the tour) every year," he said. Its attraction includes "getting ideas for your own garden ... To see creativity done with rocks, and wood and plants and so on is really something." One of the sites is Homac Acres, the home of

Cathy and Howard McCann, on McCann Road near Codrington in the Municipality of Brighton. "Occasionally we stretch the borders a little bit," Bennett said. He's "been after us for a couple of years (to be on the tour) ... We had a weak moment," Cathy quipped. The couple, who have been married 58 years, love to garden. "It's just something we enjoy doing ... (in our) free time," Howard said, and their free time increased after they sold their herd of cattle five years ago. They grow cash crops, "but we hire a lot of that done," he said. The gardens around their home weren't designed with a particular purpose in mind, said Howard, who's 79, and who has lived his entire life in the home where he grew up. "We see a plant that we like and we get it, and then we decide, 'Well, where are we going to put it?'" Cathy said. "I've always loved flowers." It's "nice to see the different blossoms," Howard said. "It makes you feel good to see when they come out."

Butter Tart Tour pulls in to Brighton and Colborne ALICIA VANDINE aliciavandine@gmail.com The Kawarthas Northumberland Butter Tart Tour is the largest butter tart tour in Ontario and there were two stops in Brighton and one in Colborne. Celebrating Canada's iconic sweet treat, this selfguided tour meandered around Northumberland County, Peterborough County, the City of Peterborough and Kawartha Lakes region with 55 locations participating and featuring three local stops at Just Like Granny's and Tin Roof Dairy Bar in Brighton and the Big Apple in Colborne. Just Like Granny's, located at 40 Prince Edward St., featured an apple town butter tart. "We added nutmeg and cinnamon to a traditional recipe," said Melissa (Brant) Dean - owner of Just Like Granny's. "Brighton is an apple town and we wanted to honour that with our butter tarts." They are sweet like a butter tart with the added flavours that make you think of an apple pie. The second stop is at the Tin Roof Dairy Bar, right behind End of the Thread Antique Emporium in downtown Brighton. If you love ice cream their twist will appeal to you. A

Just Like Granny's owners (left to right) Melissa (Brant) Dean and Jeremy Dean hold up an irresistible display. scrumptious butter tart parfait pairs vanilla ice cream with pieces of traditional butter tarts in a tall sundae cup with whipped cream and of course a cherry on top. It's definitely a great way to beat the heat while sitting in the dairy bar's courtyard or while relaxing in the shade on their red chairs on the main street in front of the Emporium. The Big Apple in Colborne makes a traditional butter tart with a nice flaky crust in their on-site bakery. "This is our first year on the tour," said Sylvia Nagy - manager of the Big Apple. "They are very popular

with our visitors." They also feature apple custard tarts which are loaded with apples, have a custard crumble top and an edible mini apple candy piece. While their butter tarts are a favourite Canadian treat, the apple tarts at the Big Apple are definitely a taste of the bounty in the Brighton and Cramahe area.

You can download your own map that lists all locations throughout the region, but these three stops are a great way to start your tour right here at home.

Campbellford - Local physicians will once again exchange surgical tools for cooking utensils this Friday night for the fourth annual Incredible Doctors' Cook-Off, a fundraiser hosted by the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation and the hospital's auxiliary. Eight physicians have been paired with culinary partners for the challenge of preparing delicious food for more than 150 guests. Making up the teams are: Dr. Jamie Read and Tina Moorey (On the Side Catering), Dr. Neil Pritchard and Adam Low (Island Park Retirement Residence), Dr. Daniel Sheps and Ron Csenar (I Am Custom Catering), Dr. Gerald

Dykstra and Justine Viske (SOS Lounge), Dr. Jeffy Parsons-Sheldrake and Ben Lehman (Benji's Buns), Dr. Michael Norman and Andrew Papaioannou (Be My Guest Restaurant), Dr. Andrea Bull and Shanna Layton (Shanna's Kitchen) and Liam Portt (a med student) and Ian Thompson (a hobby chef). The event, presented by Maizeing Acres Inc., features appetizers designed by the teams, door prizes, silent and live auctions, live entertainment by The Bay City Trio, and a few added surprises. Also available for purchase will be Rotary Ale, a new beer specially brewed by Church Key Brewery to mark the 90th anniversary of the Rotary Club of Campbellford. "The Doctors' Cook-off is the most anticipated event of the year on our annual fundraising calendar," John Russell, execu-

tive director of the Campbellford Memorial Hospital (CMH) Foundation, said in a news release. "We are confident this is going to be the best year yet for the cook-off," added Robbie Beatty, co-president of the CMH auxiliary. The cook-off gets underway at 5:30 p.m. on the east side of the Trent River in downtown Campbellford, where the fifth annual Incredible Edibles Festival will take place the next day, July 14. Money raised will support the new Bedside Care Campaign that's raising funds for the purchase of high priority medical equipment for the hospital, including a defibrillator, vital signs monitors, IV pumps and patient beds. Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased at the foundation office, the CMH auxiliary gift shop or securely online at www.givetocmh.ca.

Rockin' By the River returns Saturday JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com

Campbellford - An old-fashioned street dance, Rockin' By the River, will be held this Saturday night on Saskatoon Avenue, hosted by the Rotary Club of Campbellford, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year. Freddy Vette and the Flames will perform jukebox hits from the 1950s starting at 8 p.m. There will be prizes for best themed costumes and the winners of dance contests. There will be draws as well, and the service club will serve barbecue fare and run a bar beginning at 6 p.m. Deejay Paul McEvoy will be on hand spinning music until Vette and his band take the stage. Admission is free but donations will be accepted. The "fun night" is "to say thank you to the people of Trent Hills for their support of Rotary, (but) also to raise money for the hospital," said Kathy Herrold, a club director. "It's a win-win situation for the whole town." Herrold said street dances "used to be big in Campbellford" back in the 1960s and '70s, and Saturday's event is an attempt to recapture that magic. "It's going to be a great night" for the entire family, Herrold added, noting there will be hula hoops and chalks for children to use.

Local high jumper tops field at Canadian championships JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com Brighton - O, what a glorious season it's been for Sam Hall. East Northumberland Secondary School's senior male Athlete of the Year, who won every high jump he entered, achieved his greatest triumph on Saturday by winning the men's U20 division at the Canadian Track and Field Championships held at the Terry Fox Athletic Facility in Ottawa. Competing as a member of the University of Toronto Track Club, Hall topped the field of 15 entrants with a jump of 2.06 m. Hall won a gold medal at OFSAA and set a school record at the Eastern Regionals in Ottawa with a jump of 2.13 m.

Sam Hall, shown here on the podium at OFSAA last month, added to his trophy case this past weekend with a win in the men's U20 high jump at the national track and field championships in Ottawa.

first ever ace, on the third hole. The following day Crowder matched that with one of his own on the 17th. The two men were on opposing Ryder Cup teams at the time. Two days later Crowder was playing with Joe Theriault when Theriault du-

plicated Crowder's feat on the 17th - making three aces in four days that Crowder had fired or witnessed. According to a source at the golf course, "Rumour has it that there's now a waiting list of people wanting to play with Gary to have some 'ace luck' rub off on them."

Additions to sports wall of honour include peewee hockey team JOHN CAMPBELL jcampbell@metroland.com Brighton - A peewee team that gave Brighton its firstever provincial hockey title, a world class speedskater, and a member of the Brighton Curling Club team that represented Ontario at a national championship are the newest additions to the Alfred Gregg Sports Wall of Honour. Their names - the 1982 Brighton Bigford Aluminum peewee hockey team, Art Plasschaert and Barb Maxwell - were announced at the Canada Day opening ceremonies held July 1 at King Edward Park. The peewee team went 134-1 in defeating Stirling, Bancroft, Sutton and Durham en route to the all-Ontario Cross Country championship. The squad dropped the first game 5-3 on the road in the best-of-five final against Durham, and then won the next three by scores of 2-1, 5-2 and 4-2, with the last game being played in Campbellford. The victory was celebrated with a parade down Main Street and a civic banquet where the team's members were given jackets. A special guest that day was Rick Vaive, then the captain of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Brett Dunk expressed his team's gratitude for the honour it was being paid, and he read an excerpt from an article in the Brighton Inde-

pendent that appeared after the peewees had become champions. Its writer observed that if Peter Flindall, who scored all four goals in the team's final victory, were older and wanted to run for mayor, he would have been a shoo-in to win office, as would have a number of his teammates for the other seats on council. Plasschaert began speed skating in the early 1960s and continued in the sport after immigrating to Canada from Holland. He won a provincial speedskating title in 1969 and competed in three Canadian championships in the mid 1970s, finishing in the top 20 each time. He won gold, silver and bronze medals at Senior Olympics speedskating events in Lake Placid and placed ninth at a World Master Speed Skating championship. A past president of the Metro Toronto Speed Skating Club and a former coach, Plasschaert regularly takes part in the adult skating program at the local arena, skating laps in his speed skates. Maxwell, a Toronto native and longtime Brighton resident, was a member of the local team that competed at the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships held at St. John's in 1980. She is still an active member of the Brighton Curling Club, both as a volunteer and as a player. She also organizes the

Coaching was a passion for Gregg The Alfred Gregg Sports Wall of Honour recognizes those who, during their time of residency in Brighton, were distinguished as being an exceptional athlete, were a member of an exceptional team, or were a builder of a sport and/or a coach. Individuals must have participated in amateur or professional sport and performed in such a way, either alone or as a member of a team, that it brought special honour to the Municipality of Brighton at a provincial, national or international level. The same criteria are applied to teams who attain a high level of excellence in the year of their particular achievement. Gregg, a founding member of the Kinsmen Club, was a volunteer for decades, known widely for his coaching, refereeing and umpiring. Coaching was a passion for Gregg, who died in 2015. He took Brighton's minor atom hockey team to the OMHA final in 1980, and the girls' squirt baseball team to the ORSA final the same year. He also led the novice Braves to the Ontario East final in 2002. Gregg operated the pro shop at the King Edward Park arena for nearly 20 years. weekly Senior Shuffleboard Club program that runs in the fall and winter at the King Edward Park Community Centre. While living in Scarborough, Maxwell organized a ladies volleyball association, serving as its president for four years.

Roy endured being evacuated to Wales at the outbreak of WWII as a young boy and left school at age 14 to pursue a career in the hotel and hospitality industry. He later apprenticed in Switzerland and worked as a waiter in the world class Grand Hotel in Birmingham. After making the decision to emigrate in pursuit of better opportunities, he met Doreen at a local dance and after a brief courtship they were married. Roy made the journey to Canada alone in 1953, and was joined by Doreen in time for Christmas after a six month separation. Together they built a life in Canada with Roy working various jobs until settling into a career as a bus and street car operator with the TTC. They raised four children and helped raise ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren and were able to enjoy a comfortable retirement in Brighton Ontario while traveling the world often. Roy and Doreen had recently moved to Picton in 2016. After 65 years of happy marriage and a life well lived, Roy will be dearly missed by all. Roy asks that he be remembered by his family for "what they got from one so humble." Roy Perkins of Picton and formerly of Brighton, loving husband of Doreen (Wilkinson).
