4-H PEI Still Keeping It Local Annual Fundraiser The Prince Edward Island 4-H Council is pleased to announce the return of its annual fundraising sale, which is now underway. During the month of October, 4-H members across the Island will be taking orders for ADL cheese, Anne of Green Gables fudge, PEI Preserves and Island Gold Honey products, for delivery in early December. “This fundraiser is the key element of our external fundraising efforts each year,” explains Administrative Director Kelly Mullaly. “We are delighted to offer a wonderful selection of products - each made right here on PEI - in support of one of the longest running youth organizations on the Island.” In keeping with its “Learn to Do by Doing” motto, 4-H members and volunteer leaders take an active role in promoting the event as a portion of each sale goes directly back to the member’s home club. “4-H is a proud part of our culture,” explains P.E.I. 4-H Council President, Rayanne Frizzell. “Our programming provides opportunities for

young people to step outside of their comfort zones and to explore new skills and new leadership roles in a safe, supportive, community-based environment. This fundraiser ensures our work will continue as we enter our 98th year of operation on PEI.” If fundraising items are ordered directly from a 4-H member, it will be delivered directly to purchasers in the first week of December. For more information, please contact the 4-H PEI Provincial Office toll free at: 1-866-308-4833 or by email at: A complete listing of products is available on the PEI 4-H website at: and on the 4-H PEI Facebook page. 4-H is a national positive youth-development program which provides opportunities for Islanders between the ages of 9-21 to participate in leadership and hands-on skill development projects. 4-H on Prince Edward Island has been operating since 1918.

Kensington Meals on Wheels Needs Your Help how Meals on Wheels operates: Since 1985 Kensington Meals on Wheels has been an active volunteer program in the Kensington Area. Most customers get meals three days a week, while others may take them only one or two days. This past year the number of clients has increased significantly and we need your help. Last year’s response to the appeal was most helpful and encouraging, but to continue this service we are once again soliciting financial help from the community. Here is an update on

Update The Kensington Meals on Wheels group met recently at the Legion where they enjoyed a delicious dinner prepared by the Ladies Auxiliary who also prepare the meals for Meals on Wheels clients. Two guests were present. Following dinner the minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved and the Treasurer presented his report. The Coordinator noted in her report there was an average of 33 clients for July, August and September. Average meals were about 340 monthly.

The meals are prepared by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Kensington Royal Canadian Legion and assembled by the coordinator, who has them packed and ready for the volunteer drivers by 11am for delivery to clients. The meals consist of soup, roll/biscuit, main course and dessert. Those who have special dietary needs are given consideration when necessary (i.e. diabetic and/ or low sodium diets etc.). Recipients pay the major portion of the meal and the organization is Malpeque Bay Credit Union held a Fundraiser selling tickets on a basket. Winner of the basket was Peter Gant. $1200 was raised. The group extended a big Thank You to Malpeque Bay Credit Union staff and members for their generous fundraising support to Kensington Meals on Wheels and noted their time and effort is greatly appreciated. It was decided to open an internet account for online donations. A reminder that the month of October is fundraising month for Kensington Meals on Wheels in their continuing effort to provide approximately 340 meals per month to seniors in the community. The next meeting of Meals on Wheels will be Monday, November 28, 2016 at 1:00pm at the Masonic Lodge Kensington.

responsible for the balance. The other major expense incurred would be for the soup/meal and dessert containers including lids. Please note that if there is a need beyond the Kensington town limits, meals are available if a family memeber or volunteer from the district, can pick it up. The Kensington Meals on Wheels group thank everyone who has supported this community project in the past and hope you see fit to help this year. Any amount would begreatly appreciated as we rely on community support to continue

this service. It should be noted that a $10.00 donation will help subsidize 6 meals and on average we deliver approximately 340 meals per month to seniors in our commity. Cheques can be made out to Kensington Meals on Wheels and forwarded to PO Box 870, Kensington, PE, C0B 1M0 for which a tax receipt will be issued. Please help us keep our database updated by providing your current mailing address and/or email address if you prefer along with your donation. Sincerely, Paul Cousins, President Kensington Meals on Wheels

Kensington and Area Refugee Sponsorship Initiative (KARSI) Plans Dinner & Silent Auction November 5

The Kensington and Area Refugee Sponsorship Initiative (KARSI) group has another fundraiser planned. Carolyn Francis, Co-chair of the KARSI Steering Committee, has invited Chef Emily Wells from The Mill in New Glasgow to prepare a meal, “A Taste of Syria”, which will be served at The New London Community Complex on Saturday, November 5th. A Silent Auction and 50/50 draw will also take place that evening. Chef Wells was in the first graduating class of the Culinary Institute of Canada in Charlottetown in 1985. Recently, she was named by an online travel and leisure magazine as one of the country’s top chefs. Vegetables play a big role in Syrian

cooking and Wells will be using local P.E.I. produce, along with other ingredients, in preparation of the meal. Area artists, artisans, and merchants have generously contributed items for the event. Co-chair Patricia Bennett says the response from the community has been very positive and heart-warming. “The support locally to bring the family here safely has surpassed all our hopes and expectations”. Tickets are available at Scotiabank in Kensington. For more information please contact Patricia Bennett at 902.886.3201 or Carolyn Francis at 902.836.3296.

Trees Added To Landscape at Park Corner Heritage Cemetery

Old cemeteries are markers of human history. They are links to people we never knew, sources of history and, they tell us a great deal about our communities culturally and socially. The Park Corner Heritage Cemetery Association was successful in restoring such a cemetery and returning this heritage back to the surrounding communities through donations and fund-raisers. The group researched and gathered information on the names of those early settlers, mainly of Irish descent, who lived in the districts surrounding Park Corner between 1780 & 1860. Through their efforts and those of many individuals and businesses the Association was also able to install a large granite stone with an inscription detailing the history of the cemetery. Two commemorative plaques have also been installed at the cemetery.

Over the past year the Association applied for trees to add to the overall improvement of the property. The application was through the Greening Spaces Program. This program is delivered through the J. Frank Gaudet Tree Nursery which is part of the Forests, Fish and Wildlife Division of the Department of Communities, Land and Environment. The group received help and guidance from David Carmichael, Program Coordinator Dept. of Communities, Land and Environment J. Frank Gaudet Tree Nursery and Mary Myers from J. Frank Gaudet Nursery. The cemetery project received 90 - one gallon white spruce trees which were 2 - 3 feet in height and were delivered to the site by the Greening Spaces tree truck and crew, who were making a delivery nearby. The white spruce were cho-

sen because they perform well in the type of exposed site on the north shore of the Island. Volunteer Maureen Pendergast organized an old fashion â&#x20AC;&#x153;Planting Beeâ&#x20AC;? and, thanks to a number of volunteers the trees were planted. During the summer months dedicated volunteers Dan & Debra Norris cut the grass and maintain the flowers on the property along with help from Austin Pendergast and Greg Gillis. photos Dan Norris

Putting a Face and Story to the Names on the Cenotaph

by Daria Valkenburb

“Lest we forget.” That’s what we hear every November 11 as we gather by the various cenotaphs and memorials for the Remembrance Day services. “Lest we forget.” It’s true that we haven’t forgotten to buy a poppy, or give a minute of silence on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. We may attend a service, lay a wreath, or attend a special church service. But this Remembrance Day, take a look at the list of names on the cenotaph or memorial you’re at, and ask yourself if you have any idea about the service and sacrifices made by the people listed on those various memorials. Unless it’s a family member, the answer is probably not. One man is trying to change that story at his Legion’s Cenotaph. Pieter Valkenburg is originally from The Netherlands, and served with NATO in the Dutch Air Force. When he settled in North Tryon, P.E.I. after retirement, he joined the Borden-Carleton Legion as a way to give back to an organization that serves the brave Canadians who helped liberate the country of his birth during WW II. “I was born during the Hunger Year of 1944, when there was little or no food. So many people starved to death,” he explains. “The Canadians not only liberated us from Nazi rule, they saved us from starvation.” He participates with pride in the annual November 11 Remembrance

Day Services, always paying his respects at the Cenotaph outside the Legion. In The Netherlands, all the Canadian War Cemeteries are well tended, but the Canadian War Cemetery in Holten has a special program. Schoolchildren come every December to light candles at the graves, and the cemetery has a program called ‘A Face To Every Name’, with the purpose of creating digital records for each known buried soldier, with photos and additional information supplied by their families. One day Valkenburg asked at his Legion if there were any records of the persons named on its Cenotaph, so that he could learn more about the people who had paid such a sacrifice for the liberation of Europe. When it turned out that there were no records available at the Legion, Valkenburg offered to do the research. The purpose of Valkenburg’s research is to document all the persons mentioned on the Cenotaph for a historical record, and to make a Wall of Remembrance in the Legion with their photos. He began by looking at Veteran Affairs Virtual War Memorial website, looking for information on fallen soldiers. Next he searched through records available at Library and Archives Canada, the Tryon and Area Historical Society, community histories, and the Provincial Archives.

He reached out to other researchers, asking for help in identifying the names, and if there were photos and stories. Once he could match a name to the records, he started looking for families. His Belgian cousin, François Breugelmans, even made a trip across Belgium to help with the project, visiting various WWI cemeteries to provide photos of headstones that were not available on the internet. Among the stops was Menin Gate Memorial in Ypres, where Breugelmans searched out the names from the Cenotaph, among the more than 54,000 World War I war dead whose graves are unknown. WW I soldier Private Vincent Carr, Regimental #444791, and WW II soldier Corporal Everett Samuel Francis, Regimental #F/60575 are two of the people whose information he’s uncovered. Carr’s nephew, Delbert Carr of Tryon, was happy to help Valkenburg out with a photo of Carr in uniform, but noted that he knew little about his uncle. Similarly, Carr’s niece, Arlene Sorensen, also of Tryon, suggested that because Carr died so young, was not married, and was older than her father and her cousin’s father, there was not much information to pass on to the next generation. Vincent Earl Carr was born May 3, 1894 in North Tryon, son of Robert Carr and Catherine McLeod. On June 2, 1914,

he enlisted in the 55th Battalion in Sussex, New Brunswick, recorded his trade as labourer. On October 30, 1915 his unit sailed to England, arriving on November 9, 1915 aboard the S.S. Corsican. On April 6, 1916 he was transferred to the 36th Battalion, and then 2 months later, on June 23, 1916, he was sent for training at the 86th Machine Gun Battalion, later re-designated as the Canadian Machine Gun Depot. On July 28, 1916 he became part of the 1st (also called “A”) Canadian Motor Machine Gun Battery and arrived in France with his unit the next day. In an excerpt from the November 1, 1917 Operation Report for October 28-31, 1917 by Lt C.P. Gilman, Acting Officer in Charge, of the “A” Battery of the First Canadian Motor Machine Gun Brigade wrote: … “On the evening of the 29th ….were in position to fire on targets given for the Zero hour, which was 5:50 am morning of the 30th. As soon as we opened fire, we were subjected to an intense bombardment of our positions, and we were forced to retire 6 hours later, after sustaining 28 casualties…..” Carr was among those killed in action at the Passchendaele Ridge on the morning of October 30, 1917. He is buried in Cement House Cemetery in Langemark, Belgium.

Everett Samuel Francis was born February 2, 1921 in Albany, the son of Lester L. and Annie Mary Francis, and husband of Janie Louise of Grand Falls, Newfoundland. Before the war, he worked for Wilfred Inman of Albany as a farm labourer. On July 15, 1940, he enlisted, serving with the P.E.I. Highlanders. On September 13, 1942, he was sent from Gander, Newfoundland, where his unit was based, to Long Branch, Ontario for a small arms training course. He was on his way back to Gander aboard the railway ferry S.S. Caribou when it was torpedoed by German UBoat 69 off the coast of Newfoundland on October 14, 1942. 101 survivors were rescued and taken to Sydney, but the captain, 30 crew, 57 service personnel, and 48 passengers were lost, including Francis. He’s buried in St. Matthew’s Presbyterian Cemetery in Grand Falls, Newfoundland. Unfortunately, no family or photo of Francis has been found as yet.

Valkenburg still needs help to complete his project of putting a face and story to every name. He has not been able to find one person – F. Arsenault, who served in WWII. All of the names on the Cenotaph found so far were men, with two from the Merchant Navy. As well, research shows that there seems to be some surname spelling differences, and one name seems to be listed under the wrong column. If you recognize any of the names on the Cenotaph and have photos, letters, diaries, or stories you are willing to share, please email him at “I also encourage family members of those on the Cenotaph to come to the Borden-Carleton Legion on Remembrance Day for the service,” Valkenburg says. He also notes that the Cenotaph is showing signs of wear and tear and needs some restoration work.

Councillors Give First Reading to Fire Bylaw by Andy Walker Councillors gave first reading to a bylaw dealing with Fire Protection and Emergency Services for Kensington during their September meeting. That was a follow-up to the September 26 Committee of Council meeting, when the document was tabled for discussion only. The bylaw is to delineate and clarify roles and responsibilities within the governance and operation of the department. The document has already been reviewed by Fire Chief Allan Sudsbury and he did not recommend any changes. Town Chief Administrative Officer Geoff Baker said the department and town staff are continuing to work with W.G. Hogan Fire Safety Specialties to develop a policy and procedures manual. The fire department plans to meet with Hogan throughout

October and November to review the new bylaw and the policies currently in place, with a view to having the final document ready for approval by council next February. The bylaw defines the role of the chief and other department members and allows the department to collect dues for fire protection and rescue services, fire safety services, and fire watch duty. It commits council to defending any member of the department in the event they face legal action while carrying out their duties providing they are acting in good faith and without malice. The proposed bylaw also provides for fines in cases where a person refuses to leave an area when asked by firefighters or obstructs any

Page 7 department members while they are carrying out their duties. Council also agreed to participate in the development of a tourist information map for the area. The two sided map will show the town on one side and the surrounding area on the other. Advertisements will be sold by the marketing company developing the map and the town has agreed to cover the shortfall if not enough ads are sold to cover the cost of producing 5,000 copies. Baker told councillors the map will provide an opportunity to promote the town and its businesses and any costs involved should be minimal. If the town ends up having to cover any portion of the $4,200 production costs, the money will come out of the 2016-2017 operating budget.

Baseball Returns to Bedeque in a BIG Way by Andy Walker

Baseball is back in a big way in the Bedeque area. The community had always been a hotbed for the sport, and the chair of the Bedeque and Area Community Council remembers senior ball being played there in the 1950’s and 1960’s, along with minor ball. However, Ron Rayner said after a resurgence of the sport in the 1990’s, interest began to wane as the new century approached. The field, located beside the Bedeque and Area Recreation Centre (which underwent renovations of its own a few years ago) began to show its age. In fact, it was shut down for a few years, leaving youngsters in the immediate area with little choice but to go outside the area if they wanted to participate. However, all that is now just a distant memory. The community obtained $32,000 under the Gas Tax Fund to renovate the structure. Heath Glover of Atlantic Horticultural

Services was contracted to do the work. “We worked at it on and off for about a year,” said Glover, who lives in the area. In addition to the Gas Tax money, the community was approved for $18,000 under the provincial Island Community Fund. However, the provincial government abruptly cancelled that program, leaving the project in limbo. Rayner said the community is “extremely for-

tunate” Glover decided to complete the work for less than was allocated. For his part, Glover said it was the right thing to do, adding “I want the field to be there for my grandchildren.” Baseball returned this summer with close to 80 players signing up from rally cap (ages 5-7) up to midget. The Bedeque and Area Minor Baseball Association hosted its first provincial tournament in a number of years this fall. Rayner said it is im-

portant to note the facility serves not only the community but the surrounding area, with players in the Bedeque system coming from Borden-Carleton, Kinkora and Crapaud. Glover added the revival means the parking lot of the rink and the ball field should be a busy spot no matter what the season. “It is a real focal point for the community and it draws people here,” Rayner added. “It is just great to see cars in the parking lot all year round.’

ImagineThis Flower in a Bouquet!

Giant pumpkins are one thing but what about giant flowers? Last week I visited the Royal Ontario Museum and they had a model of the largest flower in the world. Believe me, you won’t find one on PEI! I refer to Rafflesia arnoldii, a plant with a flower that’s three feet across. Try to imagine it! What do we see regularly in the line of large flowers? Maybe blossoms on the pumpkin vine? The blossoms on the dinner plate dahlias! Try to imagine 3 feet! The Wikipedia website tells us that this is one of the three national flowers of Indonesia. It sounds as if the blossom can weigh as much as 24 pounds. The buds from which these blossoms arise are typically about 12 inches across. It lives as a parasite on certain vines that grow in undisturbed rainforests. Although considered to be a vascular plant, it has no “observable stems, leaves or roots” and appears only when ready to bloom. The blossoms are reddish - brown in color and smell like rotting meat. The flower buds take about a year to develop from the time they show up outside the root or stem of the host plant. The fragrance is responsible for attracting insects that pollinate

this flower. The flower only lasts a few days and if pollination is successful, many thousands of hard-coated seeds are produced. Tree shrews eat the seeds and spread them around. And then there is elephophily. I questioned this word. It is when elephants contribute to the process of pollination by carrying pollen on their feet. Sounds a bit far fetched but not impossibe. It is mentioned in association with this rafflesia arnoldii. As to the status of this plant, it is unknown how many are in existence and it is possible that they are getting scarce. So far efforts to recreate the environment in which they thrive have been unsuccessful. In cases where people have this plant on their property, thay are encouraged to protect the plant and charge people a small fee to take a look at it. One large bird! At the Royal Ontario Museum, there is an area with a significant collec-

tion of stuffed birds and an outstanding member of the collection is the albatross. I daresay that the chances of seeing an albatross on PEI are absolutely nil but it is interesting to learn something about this bird, nonetheless. Once again, Wikipedia is my information source. It tells us that albatrosses of the genus Diomedea have the largest wing span of extant birds today – up to 12 feet! (Extant is the opposite of extinct. I didn’t know that either). When a pair of these birds forms a bond it will last for the life of the pair. Now think about this! A breeding season, from egg laying to fledging, can last for a whole year! This is interesting. Far away in a place called Midway Island, lives the oldest known wild bird in the world. It is named Wisdom and was banded in 1956. In February of this year she hatched out her 40th chick. Evidently someone has been watching her rather closely. There is concern for albatross populations. They are threatened by a host of things such as rats and feral cats, declining fish stocks, pollution and Wikipedia tells us that longline fishing poses the greatest problem. The albatross goes after the bait and becomes caught in the hooks. Efforts are being made to prevent this from happening.

The albatross has given rise to an important segment of ecotourism. A single colony of these birds in New Zealand attracts some 40,000 visitors per year!! Projects Now what? The frost has blackened the leaves of my tomatoes but it couldn’t have been too severe because the tomatoes themselves seem unscathed. I’ve reached the point now that tomatoes that are even slightly red are picked and brought in. If hard frost threatens I will take the rest in. Time to remove debris from our gardens. Yes, it is nice to add organic matter to the soil but garden debris can increase the insect populations and increase the risk of disease. This year I planted corn in a garden plot where corn had never been grown to my knowledge. I saw nary a corn earworm. This fall I will remove all the corn stalks from the garden and dispose of them. Time to get our fall bulbs planted, folks. Last year I left it until it was too late, although the pests may have chewed them up no matter when I planted them. Gardening comments or questions?

Putting the Garden to Bed by Barbara Green

As the fall gets closer, gardeners assess how the season has been and what they plan to do next year. We used to call this putting the garden to bed. All the trellis, the supports for vines are put away, the tools are cleaned and left in their winter places, the last vegetables are picked and everything is ready for another season. We make plans for more fruit trees or raspberries.. whatever is needed.

post pile and why making them in the past, kept farming societies productive for centuries. By this time of year. your compost pile should be a layered heap - weeds, kitchen scraps, pruning, piles of seaweed and perhaps hay. When we rake leaves in the fall, we use them to pile up over the compost heap, covering

it deeply. As we try to do this in October, the rains in November will make sure it rots down. By spring we shall have a much smaller heap, but ready to be spread on the soil. This is the cycle of traditional gardening we make sure to put back into the soil the valuable elements we use to grow plants each year.

All gardens need feeding... we need to put back what we have taken out in the plants. Nowadays we know more about the science behind a com-

Challenge The Ghosts “Make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness knowledge; and to knowledge self control; and to self control perseverance, and to perseverance godliness; and to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love.” 2Peter1:5b-7 (NIV)

Lauretta Balderston free-lance writer Nowadays we hear a lot about ghosts, apparitions, haunted houses- especially if these are old, abandoned houses. A certain way the light from the surrounding areas or the moon shines through the windows makes the places look eerie and, of course the imagination being what it is, we see ghosts moving freely about inside. A creaking board, slamming door or swaying tree can cast a shadow of doubt sending chills up and down our backs, leaving us wondering, “Do ghosts really exist or is our overactive mind playing tricks?” The “now you see it, now you don’t” fleeting images make us less and less sure of ourselves and our own eyes! My grandfather was an illusionist long before his time because he would take a big handful of candy, stretch his hand out and say,“Now you see it.” In one huge mouthful of a second, he would make the candy disappear and say, “Now you don’t.” The younger kids would be astonished and start looking around for the candy! (They did not notice he had stretched out his left hand for all to see, then his right hand when he wanted to show them the candy had just disappeared!) Chewing his bounty he left the room leaving the kids marveling at Grandfather’s magical abilities. Those who call ourselves Christians have ghost-like qualities too! When things are going great we are quick to thank God and welcome all the blessings we can get. But when times get sketchy, our health takes a turn for the worst, there is more month than money in our account, we get passed over for that promotion we expected, we see the glass as half, or more, empty. We start complaining, first to ourselves, then to whoever will listen. All it takes is for one person to be nega-

tive and the wave has begun. Then no one can say, or find, anything positive to talk about. We dwell on what is wrong with the community, the church, the world, everyone but ourselves, and the blessings of yesterday are forgotten. Even if we are not directly part of the conversation we begin to allow the shadows of doubt and negativity into our minds. Our silence speaks volumes! The light in our lives becomes fractured and we become part of the problem, not the solution! Remember the joy we felt just last week or last month? Remember how blessed we felt only a short time ago? Remember how God showed us a way out of our debt? Once mired in the shadows of doubt and fear that tomorrow will be no better than today, we become ghost like in our faith- now you see it; now you don’t. Life is a journey and, like it or not, we are all taking this journey together. As we keep on going we may find that our ghost like qualities appear out of nowhere, but these do not have to be who we are! We have a gracious and all loving God who desires to walk with us, keep us safe and shed His light along the path for us to follow. Our faith will grow and get stronger than the ghosts of our past or our present, if we allow Him to be the One we look to for a true life of happiness in all circumstances. We can choose to not be ghost like but real Christians- every day! “For if you possess these qualities, (listed above) in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive.” 1Peter1:8a (NIV). We will not be ghost like but we will be real Christians- every day! May God bless and keep each one of us as we live, love and grow in our faith one day at a time!
