The MessengerNEWS Goldie keeps Carleton blue with convincing win in first election By Jeff Morris Goldie Ghamari smiled when the reality of representing Carleton in the Queen’s Park Legislature hit her. “I am going to hit the ground running,” she said with eyes filled with anticipation. Ghamari was the big winner among all of Ottawa’s election winners Thursday night. The Progressive Conservative MPP-elect earned 25,798 votes. NDP candidate Courtney Potter, a 22-yearold student, was impressive in the all-candidates meetings and managed to come in second place with 11,308 votes. Liberal Teresa Qadri was third with 9,768 votes. Green Party candidate Gordon Kubanek had 1,985 votes, while Evan Nightingale of the None of the Above Party had 413 votes. Jay Tysick, interim leader of the Ontario Party, had 399 votes. Jean-Serge Brisson of the Libertarian Party had 386, Kevin Harris of the Cultural Action Party had 110

votes, and independent candidate Mark Dickson had 89 votes. Everyone in this room has played an important role and I am forever grateful,” Ghamari said to a roomful of supporters at the Manotick Legion on election night. “I feel that, as a politician, I’m the least important person in this room. I’m here to be your voice; I’m here to listen to you; I’m here to take your concerns to Queen’s Park as your representative.” Ghamari, a trade lawyer, replaces Lisa MacLeod as the local MPP. MacLeod was elected in the newlyformed riding of Nepean. Ghamari ran a campaign much different than the fire-and-brimstone style of MacLeod campaign’s that local voters were used to seeing. MacLeod was the quintessential opposition MPP during her campaigns, while Ghamari’s campaign stayed away from aggressive politics. “We ran a campaign on what we could do for the people,” Ghamari said.

“What I am very proud of is that we ran a campaign on positivity. We ran a campaign on what we can bring to the table. As (campaign volunteer) Glen Brooks said, we always take the high road. It’s a strategy that’s tried and true and it’s one I am going to take to Queen’s Park.”

goldie continues from page 2 Ghamari’s 25,798 votes topped all candidates within the City of Ottawa, as did her total of getting 51.3 per cent of votes in her riding, and her margin of victory of 14,490 votes. “I’m shocked and I’m humbled by everyone’s support,” Ghamari said. “I have been working hard for two years and I kept my message positive – who I am, why I am running and what I am going to do for them. I think the numbers show that people respond to positivity and integrity.” Ghamari’s campaign got a last-minute boost when Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford made a surprise stop at Dickinson Days in Manotick last Saturday, just days before the election. “The nice thing about having Doug in Manotick is that we didn’t actually advertise it,” Ghamari said. “The people that were there were just going to Dickinson Days. They had no idea that Doug Ford was going to be there.” Ghamari said that

Ford’s visit to Carleton was more effective because it was stealth. “I wanted Doug to get a really good sense of what it’s like on the ground,” she said. “The support that he had was overwhelming. People were excited to see him and take a picture with him. He was supposed to be there for half an hour and he stayed for almost two hours.” Ghamari said she plans on hitting the ground running, adding that she will be a strong voice for Carleton. Over the past 18 months, she has been hosting public forums in communities throughout the riding on various issues. “Obviously hydro is a big deal, especially for local businesses and farms,” she said. “The other big issue locally is the economy. We have small businesses shutting down because they can’t afford to operate. There are big problems here, and I want to be there for small businesses because they create jobs and they are crucial to our local economy.”

Nepean’s MacLeod and Steve Clark of Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes. “We have been united, and we are one team,” Ghamari said. “We are going to continue to work together.” MacLeod said that she is sad to leave Carleton with her former NepeanCarleton riding being split into two. She offered praise for Ghamari on her win. “She ran a very effective campaign and she worked hard,” MacLeod said.

Dancers from Danielle’s Highland Dance Academy were among the entertainers in the tent who performed at Dickinson Days Saturday.

We’re still not sure who came up with the idea to let Gary Coulombe of the Manotick Messenger have the microphone and be the emcee for the parade. Gary hosted the parade from the Mill Tavern balcony.


Ken Craig and Mike Maguire pose for a photo during the Dickinson Days pancake breakfast. For 20 years, Craig has brought a bag of chocolate chips to the breakfast, and for 20 years, Maguire has put them in the Craig family’s pancakes at the event.

Members of the Royal Canadian Legion South Carleton Branch 314 in Manotick wave to the crowd during the Dickinson Days Parade.

Dickinson House Museum celebrated Manotick’s heritage during the parade. The museum was the home of Manotick founder Moss Kent Dickinson, who would later become Mayor of Ottawa. The home also served as campaign headquarters for Prime Minster Sir John A. Macdonald.

Graham Forrester of the Manotick Fire Department made sure everyone was cooled off at the parade as he handled the antique pump hose.

Dancers from the Denise Smith School of Dance were among those who performed during the parade on June 1.

Dale Davidson of the Manotick Kiwanis was this year’s Dickinson Days Parade Marshal. Davidson is an original member of the Manotick Kiwanis Club, which was founded in 1960.

What would a party in Manotick be without local celebrity and hockey author/historian Liam Maguire?

The South Carleton High School band entertained the large crowd along Manotick Main Street during the parade.

Village of Richmond gets ready to party like it’s 1818! From RichmondHub.ca Richmond has been waiting a long time for this date to arrive, 200 years give or take a few days! If Richmond ever had a reason to celebrate this is it. So put on your party face and get ready to celebrate. A great weekend of activities has been laid on with something for absolutely everyone. With the generous financial support of individual, business and government sponsors over $200K has been raised in support of this important event celebrating our history. Thanks to this generosity and thousands of hours of time and talent contributed by local volunteers and organizations throughout the community Richmond is set to enjoy a first class event befitting a bicentennial celebration! It doesn’t matter if you live in Richmond, greater Ottawa or even the distant corners of the country, the welcome mat is out to everyone to join in! What can you expect? According to Cydney Green who led the team of volunteers organizing the celebration: “Our goal is to achieve a blend of the rich military history of Richmond, it’s pioneering roots, village residents and guests with some good food and plain old fashioned fun! Just come out and help us celebrate, you won’t be disappointed.” Green said that it is hard to believe that the weekend to celebrate Richmond’s 200th anniversary is finally here. “We have been working for about three years on this weekend, and the time has flown by,” she said. “The support of the community has been

overwhelming, and residents, volunteers and businesses have stepped up to be a part of the celebration.” Most of the events will be centered on or near the Richmond Fairgrounds with lots of free parking and free admission. Food, beverages and the Saturday night event at the Arena have an admission fee. On Friday evening, June 15, the gates will open at 4:30 pm. Food, free entertainment and a pub are all available including the famous “bacon on a bun”. Governor General Foot Guards Ceremonial Band You will not want to miss the opening ceremonies from 7 pm to 9:30 pm. Mayor Jim Watson and Councillor Scott Moffatt will attend as dignitaries along with the Duke of Richmond and Cydney Green. Speeches will be short! Military pageantry will come to life with music of the Governor General Foot Guards Ceremonial Band, a guard of honour comprised of members of the Royal Canadian Army Cadets and period military reenactments. Performers such as the Canadian Military Wives Choir as well as Richmond’s own Doug and Pam Champagne are sure to help launch a memorable weekend. Of course no opening ceremony would be complete without fireworks! Saturday’s events will kick off with a military themed parade at 11:00 am. Pipe bands and lots of drums will hearken back to the early days of the military settlement. Your blood will stir as the 100th Regiment of Foot, the 78th Fraser Highlanders, the 84th Regiment, the Fencibles/Fife and Drum,

the Brockville Infantry, the Parachute Battalion and the Central Band march past. Floats, vintage vehicles and machinery will add to the historical feel of the event … 43 entries to date! After the parade, visit the quilt shows, art show or the photo booth to have your picture taken with the Duke, the “Fox” or both! It is a must to mark the occasion and the photos will be sent to you free of charge. Take the kids to the fairgrounds to participate in all sorts of children’s activities both active and passive … 3 legged races, arm wrestling, a climbing wall, Zorb balls and miniature horses, sheep shearing and llamas to bubbles and balloons! If food is on your mind there is everything from a luncheon at the United Church to old time campfire cooking at the fairgrounds, the Volunteer Fireman’s chicken BBQ as well as a host of food vendors to choose from. With all the displays, ranging from antique cars, a working blacksmith, vintage carriages, military encampments and re-enactments… over 70 free activities in all … you will need to budget your time to take it all in. There is even a hands-on opportunity to fire a musket and kids can drill in uniform as they did during the War of 1812. Don’t miss the one man Circus show presented by Carnival Diablo in the Vaudeville tent. Step inside and be prepared to be amazed by the ultimate sideshow. Take a Horse Drawn Trolley Historical Tour of Richmond starting at the fair grounds at 1, 2 and 3 pm on Saturday or Sunday.

It’s a month for everyone in Canada to celebrate!

Every year on July 1st, we celebrate Canada Day. On that date in 1867, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the Province of Canada were united into a single country. This union was a result of the Constitution Act which granted Canada a great deal of independence from England. Canada did not become fully independent until 1982, the same year that Canada Day became an official holiday. Canada Day took decades to catch on due to the fact that many early Canadians identified themselves as British. It was not

until Canada’s “golden” anniversary in 1917 (50 years) that an official celebration was recorded. The next set of Canada Day festivities did not occur until ten years later, in 1927. The government’s first recognition of the holiday occurred in 1958 with a trooping of the color on Parliament Hill. The first countrywide celebration was in 1967, Canada’s 100th anniversary. From that point on, Canada Day grew and evolved to become the widespread commercial holiday it is today. Today, Canada Day is celebrated with fire-


THIS MONTH by Larry Ellis works, concerts, cookouts, and sports games. Canada’s capital, Ottawa, Ontario, hosts the most holiday activities. There are countless events, activities, and festivals to be found throughout the city in the city streets, parks, and museums. Fireworks are launched to conclude a day of patriotic festivities. June 21, National Aboriginal Day, Canadians

from all walks of life are invited to participate in the many events taking place across the country. This date is of cultural significance to many Aboriginal peoples as it marks the summer solstice — first day of summer and the longest day of the year. Dedicating this day to the First Peoples is a way to honour their important place in the fabric of Canada.

June 24 is SaintJean-Baptiste Day, the day when French Canadians all across the country express pride in their culture and rich heritage through colourful parades and parties. These festivities combine the ancient rites of the summer solstice – a period of light and hope – with the tradition of honouring their patron saint. June 27 is Canadian Multiculturalism Day, officially proclaimed in 2002. It is an opportunity to recognize our diversity and our commitment to democracy, equality and mutual respect, and to appreciate

everything the many multicultural communities have brought to Canadian society. Happy Birthday Canada!

$2 million worth of road construction projects underway in Rideau-Goulbourn Over the next few weeks and months, several construction projects may affect your daily commute. Road resurfacing projects will be undertaken on Rideau Valley Drive South, Potter Drive, and Barnsdale Road, between Twin Elm Road and Moodie Drive. Microsurfacing projects will also be undertaken along certain parts of Fourth Line Road, Eagleson Road, Dwyer Hill Road and Old Richmond Road.


WARD REPORT by Councillor Scott Moffatt

These were approved in early 2018 with the allocation of an additional $10M for road projects. RideauGoulbourn is the recipient of $2M of those funds. Finally, Gallagher Road, between Mackey and Malakoff, will receive its final

treatment as part of the rural road upgrade that commenced last summer. The replacement of the McBean Street bridge will commence shortly. The project has been awarded to Aecon. This massive project is expected to be carried out over the next 18 months. There will be impacts to traffic, specifically for heavy vehicles and buses. I will be providing a more detailed update on this project in the Richmond Hub shortly. The sewer works along Martin Street are ongoing. As a part of this project, a Road Close Authorization has been granted for Fortune Street from Martin Street to Royal York Street. The road is scheduled to be closed from Friday, June 22nd to Wednesday, August 15th. On behalf of Richmond Village Ltd. (Caivan), Ottawa Greenbelt Construction Co. Ltd. will be undertaking the replacement of a sanitary trunk sewer. Notification signs will be posted. There will be a signed detour. Local and emergency vehicle access will be maintained. Additional construction projects scheduled for this summer include the following replacements/rehabilitations: • Ashton Station Road Bridge • Munster Road Bridge

Need new garbage, recycling bins? It just got easier!

As of June 4th, 2018, residents of Ottawa who require a new blue, black, or green bin will no longer need to request a Canadian Tire coupon to receive new bins. A new delivery service is being implemented

that will simplify the process for residents to obtain recycling containers. Recycling containers will be delivered directly to the resident’s home. Residents can now request a new recycling container by: • Making an online request for new bins. Once a request has been received, the bins will be delivered to the resident’s home within five (5) business days. • Contacting 311 to make a request for new bins. Once a request has been received, the bins will be delivered to the resident’s home within five (5) business days. • Visiting a City Client Service Centre (CSC) and requesting the bins. The

CSC will create a service request to have the bin delivered to the resident’s home within five (5) business days. The new delivery system will address the issue where residents had concerns about transporting the bins due to size. The service will also address and meet the requirements for the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act. Residents who previously received coupons for the replacement of their bins must redeem their coupons on or before June 30th. After June 30th, the coupons will no longer be valid.

Following the approval of the Traffic and Parking By-law Update 2017 report by Council on September 13th, 2017, the Traffic and Parking By-law (No. 2017301), and corresponding set fines approved by the Ontario Court of Justice are now in effect as of June 1st, 2018. As part of the approved report, a significant change in the new by-law relates to the long-standing 3-Hour Parking Rule, as it applies to weekends and statutory holidays. Under the previous by-law, on weekends and statutory holidays, motorists would only allowed to park for three consecutive hours (between 7:00am and 7:00pm), on streets where there are no parking limit signs.

Skateboard park, outdoor rink included in Centennial Park enhancements A Working Team, spearheaded by the Manotick Culture, Parks and Recreation Association, is looking at enhancing Centennial Park, especially the northeast corner, including the skateboard park and outdoor rink areas. The first step will be the creation of a concept plan for the entire Park, which doesn’t currently exist. Centennial Park is about 25 acres and includes the Manotick Arena and Community Centre, soccer fields, an outdoor pavilion, lit ball diamonds and tennis courts, parking, Manotick Cooperative Nursery School, outdoor rink and skateboard park. The development of the plan will include extensive community consultations with park user groups, neighbours, and interested Manotick associations and residents. The goal is to have the concept plan completed by January 2019, in order to meet grant application deadlines. The Working Team includes representatives from the Manotick Village and Community Association, Youth of Manotick Association, Ottawa Skateboard Community

Annual General Meeting

There were some new faces in the crowd at the Annual General Meeting of the Manotick Village and Community Association on May 29. The Association is in good financial standing with approximately $29,000 in the bank and an additional $3000 worth of assets in the form of soap box derby carts, popcorn machine and cotton candy machine. Brian Stemmler was elected Treasurer, replacing Tara Lanouette. Thank you Tara for your work over the past year! We also said farewell to our VP of Communications Andrea Strawbridge who was instrumental in getting our new web site up and running, among many other things. Thank you

Andrea! We are looking for a Director at Large and someone to take on managing memberships. If you are interested, please let me know at president@ manotickvca.org

Very successful Dickinson Days

The perfect weather brought many Manotick residents and visitors from surrounding communities to the Village on June 2 for this annual event ably organized by the Manotick Kiwanis. The MVCA booth was busy selling cotton candy and popcorn throughout the day and we raised over $700 from the sales. We will be turning half of the proceeds over to the Youth of Manotick Association.

Soap Box Derby needs your help

The annual Soap Box Derby, slated for Sunday, August 26, needs some able bodied residents to help with set up and take down of cones, barricades, ramps, etc. If you have an hour to spare on Saturday, August 25 or in the afternoon of August 26, please contact me at president@ manotickvca.org

Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer our short survey at Dickinson Days. We will be combining these results with further surveys planned for Taste of Manotick and the Picnic in the Park.

The MessengerRichmond 200th

Beer and whiskey played an important role in the early days of Richmond This was not necessarily an easy task as shown by this letter he wrote to Philemon Wright on March 30th 1824. “My man whom I sent to Saint Andrews (Quebec) for the purpose of bringing up a Steam Boiler for my brewery was obliged yesterday morning by the breakup of the ice (on the Ottawa River) to leave it 3 or 4 miles below Hull…. I am now under the necessity of soliciting your assistance as it is of material consequence my getting it up before the land road breaks… and will most willingly pay any expence (expense) attending it. It is about 11 or 12 feet long and weighs 9 to 11 Cwts.” (Hundredweights). It is not clear whether this was Burke’s first attempt to establish a brewery. In a memoir written after he left Richmond, (transcribed by George Neville in an unpublished article) Burke described the commissary. “The store built by the Government 40 x 30 of round logs and

one floor laid. I have relaid the ground floor, laid an upper floor, and fitted up works in it as a Brewery, at an expence [sic] of upwards of £250.” He said that this was the way the building looked by the end of 1818, but in the description he outlined modifications that he had made. Why was he making these changes to a new building? Did the 1818 supply depot become the site of his 1824 brewery? It is unknown. Regardless, these are examples of how early in the life of the new village breweries were established. But where did the brewers get the ingredients for their product? It is doubtful that in the first few years of the village there was extra grain to use for brewing. A possibility was that the brewers made beer that did not include grain. Gareth Newfield in his article “Drink Up! Alcohol and the British Soldier in the Canada’s During the War of 1812”, points out that the soldiers were used to drinking spruce beer

when conventional beer was not available. Spruce beer was not popular but it only required three ingredients: spruce, molasses, and yeast. Spruce and yeast could be acquired locally and George Lyon was importing molas-

ses. In 1821 he purchased almost 30 gallons from his Montreal suppliers and that amount doubled the next year. We don’t know if other merchants were also bringing molasses to the village. Grain production in-

Elections in early Richmond From RichmondHub.ca By Marion Scott Elections in the period before 1840 were dominated by the Richmond elite and their friends. Although some of the elections were hard fought and acrimonious the combatants were usually Tories. Both Richmond and Perth were part of the District of Bathurst. From 18241828 Col. George Burke represented the district but he did not contest the election of 1828. Both candidates were Perth Lawyers – James Boulton and Thomas Radenhurst. Radenhust was the brother in law of George Lyon and had the support of all the Richmond leaders.

These elections were very different from ours. There was only one polling station and that location was often in a tavern. The Richmond elite usually succeeded in placing the polling station in their village. The voting took place over a number of days (usually 5); it occurred in public and an elector had to state his choice in front of the other voters. Candidates plied voters with food and alcohol. Fights often broke out among rival factions as men were persuaded to, or deterred from, voting for a specific candidate. Vote buying was common and candidates paid the outstanding debts of voters.

creased and George Lyon opened his gristmill in 1825. There would have been excess grain for the breweries. Then in 1829, Lyon imported 400 pounds of hops from Montreal. More conventional beer was being produced.

(in Barrhaven)


Hamnett Pinhey to Col. James FitzGibbon in 1832 outlined Pinhey’s behaviour in the election of 1830. Captain John Lewis had been behind in a contest against Thomas Radenhurst. Pinhey went to Richmond to help Lewis. “I hired a private room & table at the Inn in the village for my private convenience, which you will readily believe from the prominent part I took was not long private. I advanced money to some of the farmers to clear themselves from his (Lewis’s) opponents ….” as well voters were promised work contracts or location tickets (the right to acquire a specific piece of land).

To honour Richmond’s 200th anniversary, local historian Marion Scott is posting factoids about Richmond’s rich history on her blog, Richmond Heritage. Over the next year you should expect to see 200 pieces of information that you may or may not have already known. To see more of Marion’s facts on Richmond, visit RichmondHub. ca. At a recent meeting of the GTHS, Larry Cotton, author of a series of books, Whiskey and Wickedness, claimed that the soldier/ settlers’ were dependent on beer and whiskey, and that Richmond was a production centre for both. There certainly seems to be a basis for his assertion. Historian Andrew Haydon outlined that in the 1820s Richmond had four breweries. One brewer was Col. George Burke. After his job as Superintendent disappeared, in Dec.1822, Burke was looking for alternate sources of income and one possibility was to start a brewery.

South Carleton students ask why the fox is so important to Richmond did you think would dress up? Response: I will have to count, but I think that we may have got it, if not, we were close! Now that fox day is over, are you surprised by the number of students and staff that dressed up? Response: I was super impressed with the number of staff who really owned the project and got their classes to participate. The teachers who helped with the set up and the hot dog preparation and the awesome costumes that the kids wore were incredible…it was such a fantastic day.

As I sat on the grass watching people gather among the growing crowd and find their friends, I was overwhelmed with what I saw. So many students and staff were dressed up. It was incredible to watch. As an observer it was great to see the variety of the costumes. People were pushing to be at the front of the crowd. The person taking the picture was standing on the roof so that he could get the picture, closely monitored by one of the janitors so that he didn’t fall off. The hot dogs, they were amazing! I’m excited to see what

Why is Fox Day so important? Response: Richmond is turning 200 this year. We decided to dress like foxes to commemorate our town. Why is it so important

that this goes in Guinness? Response: Why not? Doesn’t everyone want to have a record??? Do you think that this is the biggest event that Student Council has ever done? Response: We also run the Oscars which brings 250 students out to celebrate each other. For the fox event, we were very lucky to have our hot dogs donated by Sobey’s in Kanata. This really drew in a good crowd and served as an incentive to get everyone excited to dress up for the event. Do you think that the students know the story behind the logo of the fox? Response: If they didn’t…they will soon. We have written a story about it in the yearbook. How many students


Students and teachers waited. Running. Standing about. Waiting to make history happen. They stood, enjoying hot dogs and other foods. The day was May 16th, and there was a feeling of excitement in the air. It tasted like possibility. With that attitude, it felt like anything could happen. That morning, as the students raced forth to classes during second period break, the song ringing in their ears was that of the popular 2014 song, “What Does The Fox Say” by Ylvis. Now, why a fox, you might ask? Well, for that, we must look at a small part of Richmond’s history. Back in 1819, when the town was founded, the Duke of

Richmond was the Governor General Of Canada. He was bitten by a rabid fox and died in a frame barn on Chapman’s farm, about four miles from the village, on the Goodwood River. This river is now well – known to South students and Richmond residents as the Jock River. After helping with the planning for Fox Day, I decided to write an article about it. I sent six questions to one of the teachers who helps run Student Council. Here is what she said in response to the questions:

Paregoric was the medicine of choice in the early days of Richmond From RichmondHub.ca By Marion Scott In the early 1800s the inhabitants of Richmond suffered what we might consider a normal range of ailments including: respiratory, gastrointestinal and rheumatic. These were augmented by headaches and dental problems and more life threatening diseases such as cholera and malaria. With no hospitals and few doctors, the settlers were left to their own devices. Traditional home remedies were the norm but for those with money there were other options. Chief among those were various spices and in particular Allspice. Other remedies included some still known to us today: castor oil, Epsom salts, honey, liquorice root, smelling salts and chamomile. As the century progressed, patent medicine became more common. One, paregoric, was adver-

tised as a cure for diarrhea in both adults and children, cough medicine, and as a relaxant for fretting or teething children. Although not all manufacturers used the same recipe here is one from the 1870s, which used both opium and alcohol! Paregoric: Best opium 1/2 dr., dissolve it in about 2 tablespoons of boiling water; then add benzoic acid 1/2 dr.; oil of anise 1/2 a fluid dr.; clarified honey 1 oz.; camphor gum 1 scruple; alcohol, 76 percent, 11 fluid ozs.; distilled water 4-1/2 fluid ozs; macerate, (keep warm,) for two weeks. Dose – For children, 5 to 20 drops; Adults, 1 to 2 teaspoons.” A very bad cold might require Syrup of Squills made from a combination of the bulb of the sea onion plant, paregoric (described above) and laudanum (a stronger opiate). Factoid #42: By 1840, the Richmond Road from Bytown to Perth was still by no means a pleasurable

drive. In that year, the Anglican Bishop described it “24 miles in a very strong wagon, rough stony roads”. With the gradual development of the timber stands on the rivers flowing into the Ottawa River and along that river in the area around Arnprior, a whole new route became important. The shanties and timber barons needed supplies and the easiest way to get them was overland from Prescott. This new route, which ran through Kemptville, to Richmond and then north to Arnprior was considered better than many other roads. In 1838 the Rev. Thomas Wilson of Perth travelled from Arnprior to North Gower. In his account he mentioned the “excellent” road from Huntley to Richmond. ( this is unlike the scathing criticism he leveled at the roads in other townships) This road helped stop Richmond’s decline and turned it from being a

here and has been in every house in the District to procure votes, promises every thing that he thinks can have a tendency to interest the Electors, particularly getting deeds gratis…(and) Roads…..” Lyon also tells Radenhurst that he must get deeds to any landowners entitled

to them. “It will be indispensable necessary for you to … get the deeds of those who are entitled sent down to me where I can make use of all the advantages the circumstances (and I) will admit of and must say this is a point of paramount importance.” The electoral system had room to develop!

early continues from page 20 Those in power ensured that as many farmers as possible received the Land Patents for their land before the election period as only male land owners could vote. In 1828, George Lyon wrote Radenhurst, telling him that it was imperative that he visit the Richmond area. “Boulton is down

and the number of tradesmen: wagon makers, blacksmiths and shoemakers multiplied. Richmond en-

Bachelor and bachelorette ideas!

Affordable bachelor and bachelorette party ideas Weddings can be expensive. Various sources estimate the average cost of weddings is anywhere from $26,000 to $31,000. Couples and their parents may bear the brunt of wedding expenses, but those who have accepted a role in the wedding party also can expect their share of expenses. Taking into account gifts, wardrobes, makeup, bridal showers, and travel, including getting to and from the bachelor/bachelorette party, bridal party members are on the hook for a lot of money when their

friends or family members tie the knot. Many men and women like to travel for their bachelor/bachelorette parties, and cost-conscious bridal party members may be concerned about how expensive such parties can be. Pulling out all the stops can be exciting, but there’s no guarantee these types of parties will be more enjoyable than simpler soirées. Taking steps to control costs can help cost-conscious couples and their friends. The following are some affordable ideas that can be fun for all in-

volved. · Local Bar, pub or tavern crawl: Partygoers typically want to enjoy a night out on the town, and traveling from one establishment to another can be a fun way to do just that. Everyone invited can set themselves apart with a signature item (hat, T-shirt, or colored clothing), and make the rounds. · Attend a group event: Group events include sporting events, concerts, theater shows, or a night at a comedy club. Investigate discounted



tickets for large groups. · Belt out the tunes: Open mic nights at restaurants, bars and other establishments around town may make for a fun way for friends to share a few laughs together. Participants need not be professional singers to join in on the festivities. · Dinner party: Hire a caterer to visit your house and prepare a meal for guests. Serve a signature cocktail and let the conversation flow. Bachelor and bachelorette parties can be affordable without sacrificing fun.
