Bishop’s Mills honours past

Village celebrates 170-year heritage joe.morin@metroland.com

CELEBRATING 75 YEARS The Kenmore Women’s Institute is going strong after 75 years - and three generations of women. 9

73s RING IN THE SEASON The Kemptville 73s are back in action and played their first games of the season. 15

The small but healthy village of Bishop’s Mills enjoyed a great afternoon on Saturday, August 28, as residents of the village celebrated two special moments in time. The first was the 125th anniversary of the registration of the village’s plan and the second was the 170th anniversary of the founding of the mills which started it all. More than 200 people from the village and the surrounding area came out to enjoy the dual anniversaries, with music, children’s games, great food and displays of crafts made in Bishop’s Mills. Victor Desroches welcomed everyone to the plaque unveiling ceremony at the bridge and then introduced Tom Graham who spoke a few words about the meaning behind the celebrations. Graham described how Chauncey and Ira Bishop decided to build their mills and how, from that decision, grew the Bishop’s Mills commu-

nity. “So as we celebrate their accomplishment of 170 years ago, we are really celebrating community. Bishop’s Mills is still a vibrant, resilient community where the residents still have strong ties to each other and to their village,” he said. This was a special occasion that featured a visit from one of the ancestors of the founders of the village, Chauncey and Ira Bishop. “I am humbled and grateful to have been allowed to participate,” said David Bishop, who came all of the way from Toronto to take part in the special plaque unveiling ceremony. He mentioned that the special day could not have happened without a great deal of effort from all of the volunteers who planned for the anniversary. The celebrations were put together by the Bishop’s Mills Community Association. They had help from North Grenville and the Ontario Heritage Trust. See Bishop’s page 5

Intelligence is in the mind and not in the age. Those are the words that motivated 22 year-old Eric Duncan to run for mayor of North Dundas in this year’s municipal elections. “It comes down to the person’s leadership abilities and not age,” said Duncan, who’s already been a councillor for four years. “Those who know me know I’m capable of doing the job.” Duncan is a recent graduate from Carleton University and has been involved in all three levels of government for the last seven years. In addition, he has taken an interest in his community and has been involved in the annual South Mountain Fair and Winchester Hospital Foundation since he was in his early teens. “I love our community and I have a passion for it,” he said. Duncan said public response has been very positive since he has developed a solid five-point plan with new ideas on how to create a better North Dundas. One of the major concerns he has – and plans to fix – are on the roads, budgeting and finance process. “We have a number of gravel roads, and we spend $375,000 a year on gravel. Then a week later, it ends up in the ditch,” he said. “We put tens of thousands of dollars into calcium and that doesn’t last very long. We’re wasting money, frankly, and we need to come up with a plan.” As part of his five-point plan, Duncan said the best solution to this would be to “tar and chip” all of the gravel roads within the next 10 years without raising taxes too much. Courtesy photo He said most of the roads can be done this way by Eric Duncan is one of the mayoral candidates for North Dundas in this borrowing from their reserves and repaying them year’s municipal elections. later through the savings and later budgets. Duncan also mentions in his plan how North Dundas can adapt to neighbouring communities that are growing and changing – particularly Kemptville. “Walmart and urbanization are a threat to places like North Dundas,” he said. “We need to come up Used Car & with a plan to work better to promote ourselves, Truck Sales shop local and stay local.

Gary Schuck has called North Grenville home for the past 25 years. He has been married to Elsie for 28 years and together they have raised three children in the North Grenville community. Schuck is running for one of the North Grenville councillor seats in the October 25, 2010 municipal election. He says that he has no ties to any special interest groups, has no private agenda, and will work full-time in the best interests of families in the community as a whole. “I believe in open government where all members of the community have an opportunity and are actively encouraged to provide input and make their views known and have them taken into account before decisions affecting them are made,� he said. Schuck acknowledged that growth and change are inevitable, but believes it must be managed in a controlled and fiscally responsible manner. “We cannot lose sight of the fact that people have chosen to live in the community to avoid the clamour of the city and suburbs, instead embracing the more leisurely pace of our rural environment,� he said. Schuck believes that the community - when confronted with so much potential change - has to be made aware of what choices they have. “I want to find a way to ensure that all groups have a say and that the municipality is open to input from the community,� he added. Schuck worked as an engineer for 27 years, ending his engineering career as a project manager who managed the delivery of multi-million dollar projects on-time and on-budget bringing together multiple groups with divergent interests and priorities. He retired two years ago from his second career as a realtor, after spending six

LETTER

EDITORIAL

We’re not invincible As Canadians, we like to pat ourselves on the back for being the best country in the world. We have great health care, good beer and we’re polite. We’re even told that all we have to do is sew our country’s flag on our backpack while travelling and people love us. But on the day of Sept. 11, 2001, this smugness seemed to retreat a little bit in Canada. The terrorist attacks of 9-11 were a wake up call to all of North America that while we live in a free and democratic society, we were still in danger from terrorists who believe otherwise. Over time, America went a little too far in attempting to protect their country (like issuing “Red Alerts” on any major holiday – not to mention the introduction of the Patriot Act), while Canada reverted back to its original self-love and holier-than-thou mentality. Then, about five years later in 2006, the “Toronto 18” was discovered. These terrorists were found planning attacks on Canadian soil in the heart of Toronto. Eleven people were eventually convicted for plotting to bomb major government and public sites in areas around Toronto But, again, Canada seemed to forget and went on its merry way – still believing it’s invincible without even a suspicion that there might be another terrorist plot brewing in a Canadian city a few hours east of Toronto. Just recently, the RCMP has arrested more people suspected of terrorist plots in the nation’s capital. This terrorist bust in our own backyard shows us that Canada isn’t invincible after all - but we’re actually really quite vulnerable. This isn’t to say we should go as far as our friends to the south in national security measures. Actually just having our trusted RCMP doing their job - and doing it well - was enough in protecting Canadians from those terrorist plots coming to life. Our RCMP prevented another 9-11 from potentially happening in Ottawa. This isn’t to say people should stop wearing a Canadian flag on their backpack, or singing the anthem proudly at a hockey game. It’s important to have pride in Canada and this recent terrorist plot was, thankfully, stopped. It must serve as a wake-up call that our great white north will always be vulnerable.

LETTER

Pathway needs protection I have read Kevin Bridge’s letter in The Advance’s edition of August 27, about the Osgoode to Leitrim Pathway. I believe he is right that the trail can be a good addition to the area. I think that it is wrong to try to pin the objection on a single person. One hundred and eighteen people, about 85 per cent of the residents that neighbour the rail bed, have signed a petition requesting that motorized traffic - including snowmobiles - be prohibited from the trail. They did that after two years of actual experience of the snowmobile club’s patrolling to minimize adverse effects. Patrols have helped some but have not worked sufficiently well to avoid noise nuisances and speeding during the day and at all hours of the night. The increased popularity among snowmobilers is not disputed. Actually, that compounds the problem. Expert court witnesses have shown that the sound of a snowmobile (up to 85 decibels at 15 metres when brand new) is compounded when they travel in groups. Neighbouring residential properties are within 15 metres of the trail. Their houses are not much fur-

ther. From his house he can hear and I assume is annoyed by the noise of the ATV traffic on the trail. The noise and nuisance level is similar but aggravated in winter when leaves are off the deciduous trees and shrubs and by the intensity of traffic. I share the concern about safety. In winter, it is dark early. Children congregate around the Osgoode Youth Club immediately next to a major unloading and crossing area. The detour around Osgoode is still on the club’s 2009 map and, as the historical traditional route, is well known to club members. They have an alternative. The residents do not. Snowmobiling is a valid recreational activity. Unfortunately it has very negative repercussions when it is practiced within a built up residential area. The new trail will be a positive addition only when those who use it do not do so at the expense of the quality of life of their neighbours who live next to the pathway. Pierre Lalonde Osgoode

There are a good number of candidates for the 2010 Municipal election. Understanding what the top issues are is crucial for voters. The North Grenville Chamber of Commerce is hosting an All Candidates Night on Wednesday, Oct. 13 at the North Grenville Municipal Centre. To ensure that the evening will feature discussions on the most important issues, the North Grenville Chamber of Commerce is calling upon the voters of North Grenville to provide it with their top five issues that can be presented at the All Candidates Night. The doors will be open at 6 p.m. with the all candidates portion running from 7 p.m. until 9 p.m. No individuals will be named or identified. The Chamber will hold the voters name in the strictest of confidence. The sole purpose of this request is to provide a list of what the top issues are and ones that voters would like addressed by the candidates. So please contact the Chamber, by phone at 613-258-4838, by email info@northgrenvillechamber.com, and through the website at www.northgrenvillechamber.com or by fax at 613-258-3801. Verbal questions from the floor, as well as written ones, will still be an available choice for voters. During the last municipal election in 2006, only 41 per cent of the eligible voters made the effort to vote. The better informed the voters and candidates are about the issues in North Grenville, the more effective votes will be.

The Accidental Farmwife: And so we fall...into autumn BY DIANA FISHER “No spring nor summer beauty hath such grace as I have seen in one autumnal face” - John Donne They say a falling leaf is nothing more than the summer’s wave goodbye. Autumn is my favourite time of year. “Indian Summer” can bring 30-degree temperatures but the refracted light of the fall in Eastern Ontario is soft and gentle: not harsh and glaring as it was in summer. The evenings are cool and fresh, “good for sleeping”, as we Canadians are apt to say. We caught Rambi doing the dance with one of the ewes a few weeks ago, so he and his friend Rambo are now trapped in a lambing pen, until December.

He may have already taken care of a couple of ewes, so we will likely have a few Christmas lambs again this year. But the bulk of them will be born in the spring, as they were this year. It’s much easier. They’re in the barn for a shorter amount of time before the new grass is up. That means less hauling hay and water to the lambing pens for me. The Farmer mentioned a few times that he might sell off most of the sheep this year, and slowly move our operations over to beef cattle. I will miss my lambs if that happens but I won’t miss the worry. I get really attached to them and when something goes wrong (like a coyote kill), it keeps me up at night. The Farmer says beef

am trying not to buy one in every colour. It’s very tempting. I love love love flowers. The nasturtiums and marigolds I planted in rows in and around the tomato and potato plants seem to have done their job. The Farmer pronounced it my “best garden ever”. I beam with pride. Even if I can’t get time in the kitchen, at least I can grow something for Sunday dinner. (I’m just kidding – I don’t really like cooking and am quite obviously well-fed by the Farmer). It’s time to hem the school uniforms, buy the school supplies, and stock up on lunch foods. The Ex is over, the annual Fisher Farm party is over, and it’s all down hill from here – or up hill, de-

pending on how you look at it. I love the changing seasons. It’s how we mark the passage of time. Our horse is supposed to be pregnant, but we don’t know for sure. She hasn’t been hiding behind the bushes with morning sickness, I haven’t seen her knitting booties the size of dinner plates, and she isn’t requesting pickles and ice cream. She isn’t doing anything different, actually. Misty spends her days in the back meadow with her bff Donkey. She comes up for water, attention and shelter at night. We will watch her closely to see if she starts to look like her ankles are swelling. A new foal would be a lovely way to welcome

spring. This summer lived up to its almanac prediction of being a 30-degree scorcher. Let’s see how winter turns out. The Farmer’s Almanac (not my Farmer) says Winter 2010 in Ontario will be “bitterly cold and dry”. Thanks for the warning. I prefer a snowy winter, because the snow is beautiful, it insulates everything (including the water pipes to the barn) and it gives you something to ski, snowmobile and play in. For now, I will enjoy the fall. It must be right around the corner, because the tree that is always the first in town to turn (the maple outside Vincent’s salon on County Road 18) is already losing its flaming leaves.

crease. Thompson said last month one of the reasons the trail would not be paved was because paving it would put the project way over budget. However he believes limestone is the ideal surface no matter what the cost. “If you have pavement, sometimes it bubbles up and cracks so [workers] have to go back and patch it,” he said. “With the limestone, it’s much easier to surface. If there’s a rut in it, they can just go level it off and pack it down again. The long-term maintenance is much better.”

crepancy between the amounts of money the city has spent on urban versus rural pathways – $34 million to $8 million – he doesn’t feel too badly for spending a little more than anticipated on this trail. “The rurals have not had a lot of financing for these types of project,” he said. “If I want to play the rural card, it’s money well spent.” Because of the stimulus funding involved, the project needs to be completed by next March. As a result, the city was not able to wait to see if the cost of materials would de-

The 21-kilometre multi-use pathway from Osgoode to Riverside South has gone over budget by almost $800,000. But luckily, it will have no immediate barring on the city’s taxpayers. While the original price tag of the trail was $1.4 million – split between all three levels of government – the cost has now jumped to nearly $2.2 million. Most of the excess cost will be covered

by federal stimulus projects that went under budget, with the remaining monies – just over $150,000 – being taken from charges levied to housing developers. Pathway steering committee chair and Osgoode Coun. Doug Thompson said the price of the project has gone up because the cost of limestone has increased to nearly $26 per ton from $12 when planning began in June 2009. Additionally, erecting the 21 gates will be more expensive than anticipated. Since Thompson felt there is a huge dis-

Flyerland gives local readers access to best deals STAFF The web will be bringing readers the best deals locally now that Flyerland has moved ads from the region’s Metroland papers online. Debbie Frye, general manager at Flyerland.ca, said that since Flyerland rolled out their system to put ads from weeklies in Ottawa last month, residents have gone to more than 550,000 pages. “We are keeping an eye out for August

but we are expecting those numbers to grow exponentially,” she said. “What it means for the reader is that they will have electronic access to all the ads they are seeing in their local Metroland newspaper. And can now compare prices at more than one retailer locally.” Readers can search for ads by geographic location and get the same deals with coupons that they print out at their home desktop — rather than clipping out the coupons from the paper. Frye said 15 minutes of surfing can save readers $50, by allowing them to do a little comparison shopping. “You can end up spending more money even going to the discount stores if you don’t come prepared and end up overwhelmed,” Frye said. “Everyone should go shopping with a list.”

“We are extremely proud to be providing this value added service to all of our advertisers and readers. Flyerland has seen rapid growth since its launch primarily because users truly enjoy the convenience and terrific savings. Publishing all of the ads from our newspapers will only enrich the local shopping experience for our audience,” said Chris McWebb, publisher of Metroland Media – Ottawa Region. “Flyerland is not only a tremendous shopping tool – but also a friend to the environment, which is a very positive combination,” he said. Flyerland was rolled out about two-anda-half years ago and is one of the most popular Canadian websites, with more than a million unique users monthly. If a reader logs on in Nepean, Ont. they have access to 61 flyers and countless cou-

pons to take to their local merchants. There are about 400,000 products available on the site from 100 Canadian retailers. “We have about 80 per cent of national advertisers on the site,” Frye said. “So you can print out a coupon from Payless today and put it with your list and go to the store.” Frye said research from the National Retail Federation shows the average Canadian spends $620 on back-to-school supplies, that’s why they timed Ottawa newspaper ads for the fall. “It was really about simplifying the process of getting the local ads online,” she said. “And now that people have access to those ads and can comparison shop, we are hoping to help them save of those expenses.”

Kenmore Womens’ Institute celebrates 75 years JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

The Kenmore Womens’ Institute celebrated their 75th anniversary on August 16. The institute, founded in 1935, has played a crucial role in the lives of three generations of women from the Kenmore area. Marjorie Robinson is a long-time member of the Kenmore group. She has been with the Kenmore Women’s Institute for 25 years and at the age of 86 had the job of registering visitors to the anniversary celebration. She can remember when back in 1991 the Women’s Institute Hall, in Kenmore, as it was called then, hosted a fundraising dinner for the Osgoode Care Centre. “We had no running water in the hall,” she said adding that the fundraiser was a success despite the lack of water.

The Kenmore Womens’ Institute has enjoyed enthusiastic and committed membership for the past three quarters of a century. In this photo Lyla Clarmo who is 93 years old and has been a Kenmore Womens’ Institute member since 1939 poses with her granddaughter Angela Thomas at the celebration.

The Kenmore Womens’ Institute like all other Womens’ Institutes across Ontario has been helping their community for the past 75 years. “You look after your family first,” said Marjorie,” and then your neighbours. That was what the Women’s Institute did.” The Womens’ Institute was first founded in 1897 at Stoney Creek Ontario. Ten years later the Institute had grown to include groups in North Gower, followed by Stittsville and Manotick. Their motto is “For Home and Country”. The Kenmore Womens’ Institute has contributed much to its community over the past three quarters of a century. When Eda vanderLinden, the author of the book They Ventured Forth – Stories of Dutch immigration in the Osgoode ward, needed a bit more funding to get her book finished the Kenmore Womens’ Institute was there to help out.

Kemptville hockey player has a shot at NHL KRISTY WALLACE kristy.wallace@metroland.com

Alex O’Neil’s 18 year-old friends have been spending the summer like typical teenagers – partying, getting ready for school and working construction in Kemptville. O’Neil, however, has been busy spending his days at the gym and hitting the ice wherever he can at night. That’s because he is spending his time training for the main tryouts for NHL team, the New York Islanders. “I was shocked and surprised. I was not expecting to get that phone call at all,” said O’Neil, referring to when he learned he’d be heading to New York to compete. “It’s been the dream, I guess.” O’Neil will be going to New York in September to take part in rookie games against the Boston Bruins. He’s made the shortlist of 12 forwards who have been invited to try out. He got his start in hockey play-

ing some minor hockey with the Kemptville District Minor Hockey and Rideau St. Lawrence Kings. At only 14 years-old, O’Neil moved to Toronto to play with the Toronto Red Wings. He was drafted to the Ontario Hockey League at 15 to the Brampton Battalion. He went back to his Kemptville roots in 2008/09 when he played with the Kemptville 73s Junior A club. Between 2009/10, he played with the OHL’s Brampton Battalion. He said playing for teams like the 73s gave him skills he hopes to take to the NHL if he gets chosen. “Kemptville minor hockey was a stepping stone and I had to move up to higher levels,” he said. “But on the 73s, it opened my eyes and made me realize what I had to do to become better with every game.” Growing up, he said he’s always wanted to be in the NHL and looked up to a friend’s father, Charlie Moore, who was also in the NHL. “He told me all these stories of playing hockey in OHL and NHL and hanging out with all the guys on the team,” O’Neil said. “It made

me really want to do that too.” He added that advice he’s received over the years has helped him get to the point where he is now. Those more experienced in the league have told him to try his hardest and if it doesn’t work out, to keep on trying. O’Neil said he experienced rejection first hand when he was cut from the Brampton team, but he stayed positive and was called back a week later. On the Brampton team, O’Neil was known for his physical style of hockey and led the team in penalty minutes – while also contributing points for his team. He added that he has advice for many NHL hopefuls who are working hard to make it. “Don’t give up. If you get cut from a team, just keep trying,” O’Neil said. “Eventually you’ll make it. If they’re interested in you, that means you’re good at hockey.” His three younger siblings are also involved in competitive hockey, but O’Neil is modest about considering himself a role model. “They’re definitely proud for me, and they can’t believe it either,” he said. “But we’re just a humble hockey family that loves and enjoys the game.”

The BR+E Volunteer Task Force got together on Thursday, Aug. 26 to review the data that came from the 80 business visits completed in July. The Task Force discussed actions that could address the issues, opportunities, barriers and recommendations that were made by the business community and that were identified through data analysis of that feedback.

The next step is to develop a preliminary action plan from the valuable input received by the Volunteer Task Force and this report will be presented at a public meeting in the fall for final input by the community before taking to council for consideration. The Municipality of North Grenville, along with the North Grenville Chamber of Commerce thanks the business

community, all of the volunteers and the community as a whole for the continued commitment and dedication to the Business Retention + Expansion Program. Stay tuned for further updates.

Be Smart: Stay School-Bus Safe

North Grenville District High School 304 Prescott St., Kemptville, ON 613-258-3481 • www.ucdsb.on.ca

School bus safety is not only the responsibility of the school, bus company or driver. It is also largely the responsibility of the riders and the parents of these students. Reiterating proper bus riding protocol is essential to keeping riders safe. so there is no need to rush and be distracted. • Wait for the school bus to come to a complete stop and for other traffic to halt before approaching the bus. • Promptly take a seat, and remain seated throughout the entire ride. If there are safety belts present, use them. • Do not distract the bus driver with loud yelling, music, etc. • Don’t throw anything around the bus. • Keep the aisle clear to avoid tripping hazards. • Follow the driver’s instruc-

tions in the event of an emergency. • Remain seated until the bus has stopped at a particular dropoff location. • When exiting the bus, take three steps away from the bus so that visibility of the driver is improved. • Watch for traffic when crossing the street. Always cross in front of the bus. • If something is forgotten on the bus, don’t try to run back and retrieve it. The driver may not expect a student to be returning to the bus.

School buses are essential modes of transportation, taking thousands of students to and from school every day. While school bus accidents are rare, riders should still practice safety aboard and around the bus. In the early days of education, students were educated in local schools within walking distance. If they needed to travel, it was by horse-drawn wagon. As the nation’s roadways began to evolve, so did the methods of getting children to school. Eventually school buses became the norm. In addition to safety procedures regarding ridership, school buses are built with certain standards in mind. Mirrors, lights, braking systems and the like are regulated to provide the utmost safety to passengers. While catastrophic accidents involving school buses are very rare, buses are built to handle much more than the occasional run-ins with passenger cars and light trucks. Maintaining school bus safety is a team effort. Students need to do their part while riding the bus. Here are the safety precautions that should be followed. • Walk to the bus stop, don’t run. • Always use caution when crossing roadways. • Walk on the sidewalk whenever possible. If no sidewalk is present, walk in the opposite direction of traffic to be aware of on-coming traffic. • Don’t fool around at the bus stop. Accidents can happen when individuals are unaware of their surroundings or distracted. • Stand at the bus stop in a safe location. Do not enter the street. • Arrive at the bus stop early

Thompson emphasized the importance of having an education plan in place so that the players will end up where they want to be. The camp consists of 37 players and 5 goaltenders. Several of the players will be out of town during the process as they have been invited to attend OHL camps. On Monday, August 23, the 73’s had their first action of the year. The team traveled to Pembroke to face the Lumber Kings in the annual rookie game. As the name indicates the teams were comprised almost entirely of rook-

On Friday, September 3, also at 7:30 the Gloucester Rangers will be the opposition and on Sunday, September 5, at 2:00 the Smiths Falls Bears come to town. Remember the CHL season opening showcase will be held at the Kanata Recreation Centre the weekend of September 10, 11, and 12. All twelve teams in the league will play two games. Kemptville’s games are Friday night at 7:30 against the Kanata Stallions and Saturday night at 5:00 against the Pembroke Lumber Kings. Come out and see some exciting hockey!

The 2010/11 hockey season has officially started. The Kemptville 73’s training camp got under way Friday, August 20th. The invitees were at the North Grenville Municipal Centre for skating drills and fitness testing. The practices continued on Saturday and Sunday and the players were put through intense workouts. Sunday afternoon, the 73’s hosted a dinner for all the players, coaches and volunteers as well as the player’s families. After the dinner, team owner and General Manager, Paul Brenton addressed the gathering. He welcomed everyone to the family, and stated that the opportunity that these players will have has not been seen in the CJHL before. The league has changed it’s name and is now known as the CHL, the Central Hockey League and it has a new logo and now has a higher designation, Tier1. Brenton said “Being a Tier 1 league comes with lots of perks.” Some of these perks include practice to game ratio, contracts with high quality equipment suppliers and structured academic support just to name a few. Speaking next was Head Coach, Pat Malloy. He went on to re-enforce his position of team play both on and off the ice. Malloy said, “Every player on the team

ies. In a close fought game, Pembroke came out the winner with a 5-4 decision. Brandon Lesway led the way for Kemptville with a goal and two assists. After a full week of practice, the players participated in the annual 73’s Golf Tournament on Friday August 27. Then it was back to the ice. The 73’s traveled to Orleans to tackle the Gloucester Rangers on Saturday August 28. They quickly jumped out to a 20 lead before the game was two minutes old, but the Rangers fought back to tie it at three at the end of the first period. Kemptville got themselves into some penalty trouble in the rest of the game and came out on the losing end of an 85 score. Scoring for the 73’s were Alex Brenton with two and singles from Dan Lacroix, Nick Duhn and Josh Pitt. In an unusual game the 73’s took on the Smiths Falls Bears on Sunday, August 29 at 10:30 . Due to the unfinished construction of the new arena in Smiths Falls, the game was held at the Beckwith Recreation Complex. The team played very well and defeated the Bears 5-3. Setting the pace was Kurt Gowdy who scored once and added two assists. This week’s schedule has the 73’s hosting three home games. On Wednesday,

16 teams participate in annual community ball tournament JOSEPH MORIN joe.morin@metroland.com

The Ron VandenTillaart Brenda Finnerty-O’Neil Memorial Family Classic celebrated its 19th year in 2010. There were 16 teams of ball players playing daylong games at the two ball diamonds at the South Gower Recreational Park on June 19. Rhonda Kozey, one of the organizing committee members said that this year’s tournament was another success. “All of the proceeds raised are donated back to the community,” she said. The total raised this year from the tournament and their popular silent auction was $8,700. Kozey stated that all of the tournaments sponsors and volunteers as

well as team members made the event a success. Ten families from the north Grenville area will receive some help from the proceeds of the tournament. “I have to thank our community for all of its great support,” said Kozey. She added that at least fifty local businesses donated to the tournament. Kozey said that the community can thanks business by shopping locally.

Box Office Office Entertainment Welcomes

Box Office Entertainment has been a fixture in Kemptville since opening twelve years ago and this month celebrates another milestone as they welcome Sears to their location.
