Jeff Keays announces mayoral campaign MELISSA DI COSTANZO THIS WEEK

Jeff Keays is looking to return to his hometown to run for mayor. The Smiths Falls native officially launched his mayoral campaign on Monday, June 14, promising a fresh approach to leadership in town. “We need true leadership at the top,” he said. “We need someone who can intro-

duce coherent, purposeful plans that will create sustainable economic growth and provide the kinds of services people want and need in this town.” Keays, a former captain of Canada’s national track and field team, spoke to a gathering of approximately 50 at the Bakery Café. He said the town is at a crossroads, thanks to the closures of both Hershey and the Rideau Regional Centre. “In response, we’ve experienced only secrecy and inaction by an administration

that stumbles to introduce the kind of strategic thinking that can deliver hope to our residents and business community,” he said. Keays said the next four years are make or break years for Smiths Falls, and that the town is sitting on the verge of greatness or ruin: the deciding factors, he continued, are residential, economic and community development, short and long-term finance planning and administrative control.

LAURA MUELLER/THIS WEEK

THIS WEEK STAFF Lace up your runners and tune up your bike, because the tri is on. This year marks the 31st anniversary of Canada’s first triathlon, the Smiths Falls Classic, set to swim, bike and run through town on Sunday, June 20. New to the program this year is a special twist to the Sprint Triathlon: the introduction of “the chase.” The east’s top tri-athletes will go headto-head in a unique chase format, where the women will go first with a seven-minute head start. Then the men start, and the chase is on. Also new to the program are canoe and kayak triathlons. The 26-kilometre one-loop cycle course was a hit last year and is back for another year. The Try-A-Tri and Super Sprint are also back, as is the Sprint-Swim-Cycle. The Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute athletic program is the official club of the 2010 Smiths Falls Classic Triathlon and Duathlon and Figure Eight Run. This year, the RedHawks are participating to support Chimo Elementary School and the Lanark Animal Welfare Society. Whether you’re a participant in the event or a spectator cheering on peers, Canada’s original swim-bike-run triathlon is sure to be filled with fun and personal challenges. The event kicks off at 9:30 a.m. at Lower Reach Park. For more information, click on http://somersault.ca/eventsmithsfallsclassic.htm. 386777

Tom Foulkes receives senior achievement award THIS WEEK

He’s described as a dynamo by Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples and a pillar of the community. His involvement in town (and in the other various communities he has lived in) spans years and many organizations. And last week, Smiths Falls’ 2002 Citizen of the Year was honoured again for his numerous contributions to the Town of Smiths Falls. Tom Foulkes, a resident in town since 1998, was presented with the Senior of the Year Award, an award honouring those who have made outstanding contributions to their communities after the age of 65. Foulkes was honoured, and thanked other active citizens in the town. “We’ve made a lot of progress in this town over the past 15 to 20 years,” says Foulkes. “Sure, I (participated) in a lot of activities. But people like Jim Adam and others … without them, it wouldn’t have happened.” CONTINUOUSLY CONTRIBUTING Foulkes, 74, was “surprised and shocked” to have received the award: he was, after all,

while at his Otty Lake cottage. “We’re honoured and proud and I’m humbled.” Foulkes accepted the award while his wife, Pat, watched and cheered on. “The nicest part is that the municipality nominates you,” says Pat. “It helps us feel at home, part of the community.” It would be nearly impossible to sum up Foulkes’ involvement in the numerous communities he’s lived in. “Don’t try,” he says laughing. “There’s too much.” He’s been involved with the Lions Club (perhaps, most notably, with the notorious district indoor pool fund), the Smiths Falls Curling and Squash Club, t h e R i d e a u E nv i r o n m e n t a l Action League, the Friends of the Smiths Falls Public Library, Trinity United Church, the Otty Lake Association and, of course, the Station Theatre. MELISSA DI COSTANZO/THIS WEEK “The list goes on and on,” Patricia and Tom Foulkes take says Staples. “He’s a senior who is still a moment to reflect on Tom’s contributing in a great way. He’s achievements, at their Otty Lake made great things happen in cottage. Smiths Falls.” Foulkes says his upbringing lured to council chambers under during the Great Depression and First World War contributed to false pretences. “They told me it was some- his mentality to continuously get thing to do with Trinity (United involved. “The idea is that we’ve been Church),” he says, laughing

given a gift and you work like heck,” he explains. “And that’s the way we were raised.” Foulkes has suffered from a number of personal health issues. Nevertheless, he’s kept busy throughout the years. He’s even ready to play golf

again. “We’re determined,” he says simply. “It’s better to give than to receive. It enriches your life and keeps us out of trouble. “It’s fun, and for the most part, it can be satisfying.”

Trip to China postponed until July The date was set, but Smiths Falls Mayor Dennis Staples and Bob Cheetham, the town’s manager of economic development, have postponed their trip to China. Their flights were to initially depart on June 11, but Zhi Liang Tang, chairperson of the Standing Committees of the People’s Congress of Xiangfan City, Hubei Province, China, was in Germany during Staples and Cheetham’s initially-scheduled visit. Now the duo, along with business advisor and translator Linus Wang, will be travelling to the city of 5.8 million people from July 11 to July 22. “Obviously, we want to be there at the same time as (Tang) is,” explains Cheetham. “He asked if we could come in July.” Airfare that was booked for the initial trip has been rebooked within the confines of the trip’s budget, says Cheetham. “There are no issues at all,” he says about the rebookings. Cheetham also says visiting the city in July is something he considers a strength because “a couple more elements” can be tacked on to the trip, such as “different meetings with different departments.” The trip is a reciprocal trip to an October visit to Smiths Falls from a delegation of 11 officials from Xiangfan City. The trio will be staying in Xiangfan City, Smiths Falls’ twinned city, with a number of items to tackle on their busy agenda for a little over a week. In addition to core meetings with companies, the group will also participate in social dignitary meetings, which will be organized by officials from Xiangfan City.

The talented artists and artisans will open their studios to welcome you. Studios will be open from 10am to 5pm , Saturday and Sunday.

SFDCI RedHawks celebrate the year’s successes THIS WEEK

A dynamic year for the Smiths Falls District Collegiate Institute RedHawks was celebrated on June 10 at the school’s annual athletic banquet. It was a time to recognize those students who contributed to their team’s success as well as improving their games. The evening kicked off with a special tribute to the junior and senior football teams’ double Lanark-Renfrew championship title win. In addition to each team handing out awards for most improved, most valuable player and leadership, several annual prestigious awards were also doled out. Athlete of the year honours went to Kayla Bristow for junior female; Sam Campbell for junior male; Megan Smith for senior female, and Vince Dufort for senior male. In addition to athlete of the year, Smith picked up a number of other accolades, including a leadership award for track and field, wrestling athlete of the year, and track and field athlete of the year. Dufort was also a big winner, picking up basketball athlete of the year and most valuable player for the senior boys basketball team. The RedHawks Coaches Award is traditionally given to students who have demonstrated athletic excellence and leadership in the school and in the community. This year, Carlie Fouthin and Dylan Howes were the recipients. “Carlie helps us out, making the school a better place,” said Dan Dufort, coach at SFDCI. “Dylan contributes to making this

school a better place.” Though several of the award winners are graduating this year and moving on to postsecondary pursuits, many rookies from this year are staying within the program’s ranks in preparation for upcoming years.

(Clockwise from top) Vince Dufort accepts the senior male athlete of the year award from his father, Dan. Megan Smith also received her senior female athlete of the year award from her dad, Dave, who wrestled in his daughter’s weight category and took the OFSAA title in 1978. Carlie Fouthin and Dylan Howes share a smile with their RedHawks Coaches Award plaques.

Smiths Falls This Week - JUNE 17, 2010

Giving with open hearts Cathy Onion, Sarah Patterson, David Barkley and Tom Foulkes. Four individuals from Smiths Falls who all share on common thread: a desire to make a difference in other’s lives. Over the past two weeks, the staff at This Week has had the opportunity to meet some of the kindest and biggest hearts in the Town of Smiths Falls. Cathy and Sarah travelled across the world to give their time and love to orphaned children. David, a four-year-old cancer survivor, collected roughly $200 over the course of the year in preparation for the 2010 Relay for Life in Lombardy. And Tom has spent an endless number of years serving on a variety of boards, committees and service clubs with a “determined” goal of assisting the community. Volunteering can be a difficult task for some of us: for those of us who have jobs, or go to school, time is of the essence. But for David, collecting spare change has been his side project, an idea and dream his three-year-old self thought up of last year. Cathy and Sarah, with a great amount of help from the community, were able to turn their dream into a reality, and spent close to a month witnessing very different lives. Nevertheless, the duo brought their hard work and smiles with them, although Sarah said it was often tough to fight back tears. Tom has spent years immersed in community organizations, despite his fairly recent illnesses, an act he says enriched not only his life, but the lives of others. Each individual rarely mentioned “I” when discussing their experiences and their goals. David did it for survivors, and for those who are still fighting with the disease. Cathy and Sarah did it for love-starved children. Tom did it for the good of the community. Meeting each of these people has been an honour and a privilege for This Week. We’d like to thank you for your hard work and dedication. We look forward to hearing more about your good deeds and giving nature in the future.

Onion met a little boy, who she nicknamed “Imbonakalo,” which means ‘attitude’ in Zulu. “He touched my heart,” says Onion. Meanwhile, Patterson reflects about Prudence, a 12-year-old girl she met and befriended. “I cried all night and all the way home,” she says about leaving Prudence. “I want to go back to see her.” Despite the hardships each witnessed, Patterson says remaining clearheaded was key to facing challenges. “You get in over your head if you think about needs and priorities,” she says. “I want to focus on one project if I go back again.” Both think they want to re-visit South Africa sometime in the near future. “Every day, I’m thinking about it,” says Onion. “It’s just amazing what it does to you.”

Sarah celebrated a birthday during the duration of the mission. As a thank you to the community, Patterson plans on making a documentary of the trip, using clips and pictures she took herself. “We can’t thank the community enough,” she says. “Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to help. Because of the community’s support, we were able to get there.”

Cathy Onion and Sarah Patterson sit on Onion’s couch at her Brockville Street home. Resting on the coffee table are two thick photo albums. Patterson reaches for one and thumbs through the pages slowly, recalling experiences from their recent trip to South Africa. “It was awesome, and such a great experience,” says Onion. “We were happy to go, and sad to leave.” From May 11 to June 4, the registered practical nurses, who both work at the Great War Memorial site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital, embarked on a three-week mission to the village of Kwa Zenzele, where they took part in two different projects: the St. Martin de Porres Development Project, and Ebenezer. Patterson’s sister, Meaghan, 19, also made the journey. The St. Martin project is a community-based organization working in Kwa Thema Township since 2002 and Kwa Zenzele informal settlement since 2006. The main focus of the project is on orphaned and vulnerable children, most who have lost their parents to AIDSrelated illnesses, aged four to 17 and their caregivers. At the St. Martin project, the duo bought materials and built a play structure for the children which, as Patterson says, brought smiles to many children’s faces. Ebenezer is operated by Pastor Elias Nyembezi and his wife Pricilla and aims to feed 62 children aged two to five. Both projects are part of the AfriCan AIDS Foundation, a non-profit organization which was started in 2006. Afri-Can is based out of Brockville, and has assisted people in Sudan, Tanzania, Zambia and South Africa by sending funds to provide bikes and backpacks to local community health workers, assisting with basics such as food and housing, and with school fees. At present, the foundation’s focus is on St. Martin’s, located near Johannesburg, and Ebenezer, which is near Durban. Onion and Patterson also expected to work at a local hospital, but were denied entrance at the last minute due to unhealthy conditions. Instead, they spent time at the St. Francis Hospice, where they looked after, and played with, children. The duo, along with eight others, worked on both projects for a little over three weeks and is back with appreciation and stories to share. “I came home and saw a stack of mail: my hydro bill and my gas bill and I said ‘at least I have these,’” says Onion. Patterson agrees. “It makes you appreciate what you have,” she says. “It makes you

CLASSIC THEATRE We’ve celebrated our new theatre, now let’s celebrate the inaugural season of the Classic Theatre Festival in Perth, which will reflect a golden age of theatre that expressed a sense of optimism and hope.

The festival, which is the first such professional theatre offering in the area, will open with its first-ever performance July 10. The season kicks off with the Noel Coward favourite, Blithe Spirit, directed by Classic Theatre Festival artistic producer, Laurel Smith. The second production of the season, the Second-World-War romance The Voice of the Turtle by John van Druten, opens Aug. 7. The Classic Theatre Festival’s mandate is to present highquality, professional theatre reflecting the era from the 1920s to the ’50s. Both shows take place at the Studio Theatre at the Tay Basin off Gore Street in Perth. Performances take place Wednesday to Saturday at 8 p.m., with 2 p.m. matinees on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are on sale now, $30 for adults or $21 for anyone under age 30 (with

identification). Sets for both plays will be designed by Ivo Valentik, who was awarded the Emerging Artist Prize at the 2009 Les Prix Rideau Awards. Costume designer Sarah Waghorn began her career at the Royal New Zealand Ballet and the New Zealand Opera and worked for five years at the Great Canadian Theatre Company in Ottawa. Perth resident Tina Gately, who is well-known to Studio Theatre patrons as the regular lighting technician, will serve as lighting designer for the festival.

THIS WEEK STAFF On Feb. 7, the Express Variety on Lombard Street was robbed by a lone male brandishing a pellet pistol. David Francis Geurtin, a 25-year-old Smiths Falls man, was arrested for the offences and has been in custody since that time. He has recently pleaded guilty to the offences and has received a four-year penitentiary term. With time already served prior to sentencing, the man has a 42-month sentence left to serve. * Police responded to a local store on June 1 after being advised that management had two shoplifters in custody. A woman and a female youth had been stopped by staff after exiting the store with unpaid merchandise. The woman began acting up, and when the store manager told her she was under arrest, the woman screamed at him, kicked him and bit him on the arm. The woman was changed with theft and resisting arrest with assault. The female youth was charged with theft; both females were released from custody and will appear in court at a later date. * On June 7, a Prescott youth was arrested after an investigation into allegations of sexual assaults at a local school. The youth allegedly grabbed the breasts of two female students and in one incident, unclasped the bra of another female student. The youth was released from custody, and will appear in youth court at a later date.

* On June 4, a youth walking down Ogden Avenue picked up a hat, set it on fire and threw the hat into the back of a parked pick-up truck. Citizens acted quickly and extinguished the fire and called the police. Patrol officers responded to the area within a few minutes and the youth was apprehended. The youth was charged with arson, breach of probation and breach of undertaking for failing to keep the peace. The youth was released to his mother on an undertaking with numerous conditions, and will appear in youth court at a later date. * On June 6, a patrol officer clocked a motor vehicle on radar at 104 kilometres per hour in a posted 60 kilometre per hour zone. Police stopped the car and the driver was identified as a 28-year-old man. The officer made observations to confirm that the man was operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. He was arrested and given a demand to provide breath samples. Both samples were over the legal limit. He was charged with impaired driving. He was served an ADLS suspension and released on a promise to appear. He will appear in Perth court on June 21. * On June 6, a 67-year-old male pulled a knife and threatened patrons in a business on Beckwith St. N. Upon the arrival of police, the man attempted to pull his knife out again. After a minor physical struggle,

police took control of the male and placed him under arrest. The male exhibited bizarre behavior and was transported to the Smiths Falls site of the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital for assessment under the Mental Health Act. The male was held for a 72-hour assessment, and faces charges of dangerous weapons and resisting arrest. * On June 10, police responded to the area of Elmsley St. N. and Maple Ave. N. in response to a cyclist crash. The cyclist was found so intoxicated that his speech was hard to understand. A witness reported the cyclist may have struck his head and police

requested an ambulance. The cyclist was transported to the hospital for observation regarding the head injury. The cyclist was charged under the liquor licence act for public intoxication. * On June 11, while on patrol, an officer observed a male known to him as a 22-year-old male of no fixed address. The officer knew he was on conditions not to associate with persons having a criminal record. The officer knew the group he was with and, after a record check, confirmed his suspicion. He was arrested and was charged with breaching his probation order, and held pending a bail hearing.

‘Field of dreams’ celebrated in Township of Beckwith KATIE MULLIGAN THIS WEEK

An artificial turf field has been made possible thanks to a genuine love of recreation in the township. An official ceremony was held on June 12 at halftime during a Beckwith Irish Minor Football game against Brockville, to celebrate the official opening of the new outdoor artificial turf field at Beckwith Park. A special plaque was unveiled, giving recognition to those responsible for making the new field a reality. The plaque will be mounted on one of the rocks at the main entrance to the field. The $1.3 million field was paid for by a number of groups. The federal and provincial governments each contributed one third of the funding while the rest was split between Beckwith, Carleton Place, the Brunton family and user groups. Beckwith Township contributed $60,000, Carleton Place gave $40,000 and the family of the late Stanley Brunton, former Beckwith Township reeve, gave $320,000 for the project. Cavanagh Construction paid for part of the scoreboard, as well as installation, and the Carleton Place Soccer Club and Beckwith Minor Football paid for some of the field accessories. “It is the only field like this between here and Kingston,” said Beckwith Township Reeve Kidd. Stanley’s wife, Margaret, his sister Irene, brother

Keith and nephew David attended the ceremony, along with Beckwith council and staff, members of Carleton Place council, municipal representatives from surrounding municipalities, residents and athletes. David said his uncle believed in the saying, if you build it, it will come. “Stan believed that if you built a recreation facility, it would draw families to live here,” said David. Kidd took a moment to reflect on the life of Stanley. “Stanley Brunton, farmer, businessman and politician, was a dedicated resident of Beckwith Township all his life,” said Kidd. Stanley was first elected to Beckwith council in 1951. He became reeve in 1955 and held that position for 39 years. He was on Lanark County council and served as warden in 1963, then again in 1979. He was the president of the Rural Municipalities of Ontario and served as director of the Ontario Good Roads Association. Stanley was on Beckwith council as reeve until 2000. “The Brunton family’s financial contribution to recreation, along with other funding partners, made this field of dreams

a reality,” said Kidd. Kidd said recreation was extremely important to Stanley, who he feels would be pleased with what has been accomplished.

ACTION PLANS Keays promises during the first 30 days of his administration to create a “legitimate and workable action plans.” These plans would be guided by a triple bottom line approach: economic, environmental and community sustainability. “This will cover everything from business development to economic renewal and community development,” he said. “We’ll be talking about cultural renewal and how we can ensure that every voice is heard when the planning process begins.” Within 60 days, Keays said he and his council partners will release what he deems a strategic blueprint for success: a document which will outline key priorities and new directions. Within 100 days, Keays said changes will be introduced, as he works with business owners, the community, and arts and cultural leaders. He also promises an aggressive budget process and plans to introduce a number of town hall meetings in the coming weeks. “On Oct. 25, please remember this is our town, our time, our future,” he said. “Together, we can achieve more.” According to the unofficial listing of nominees for the 2010 municipal election, Mayor Dennis Staples has chosen to run again for his position. In the coming weeks, a website will be up and running, as will Keays’ campaign office.

Keays, who has worked as executive assistant to Diane Holmes, Ottawa city councillor, for the past five years, said leadership is not about celebrating past accomplishments in infrastructure renewal. “True leadership is about corralling, and supporting the ideas and dedication of hard-working council colleagues,” he said.

Shannon Moore, a newcomer to Smiths Falls, said she felt welcomed into the area at the annual Friends of the Smiths Falls Public Library book fair, which took place on Sunday.

Marsha Jackson-Legault, property manager of County Fair Mall, is inviting members of the community to come out to share memories and salute and support the troops from CFB Petawawa. The mall is playing host to a second Salute our Troops event on Friday, June 25 and Jackson-Legault is extending an invitation to local residents. “It happened last year, and the mall tenants were enthusiastic about the turnout,” explains Jackson-Legault.

“They asked about having a second event. Based on the enthusiasm from the previous year, that’s why we’re doing it again. I invite everyone to participate as a thank you for visiting us and to honour them.” The event is taking place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., beginning at the side parking lot in the Zellers garden area, with a parade around the front of the mall. The parade will then proceed into the common area, where an introduction of six to eight troops and the singing of O Canada will take place. The first 100 people to show up at the event will receive a free Canadian flag; free cake will also be dished out

THIS WEEK

The following are briefs from the Town of Smiths Falls June 14 committee-of-the-whole meeting at 5 p.m. PICKLE FEST 2010 Wilf Toop, also known as Mr. Pickle, came to committee on Monday night, extending an invitation to councillors to come out and act as pickle judges for the event. “It’s fun, hilarious, sour and crunchy,” he said. If they choose to accept, councillors will be judging four categories of pickles: dills, sours, sweets and jams. “(The festival) is growing, and without your help, it won’t grow any bigger,” said Toop. “I urge you to be judges. It’s fun.” Coun. Dawn Quinn said she would judge the event, as did Coun. Robin Hawe. The festival, which is in its fifth year, will be taking place on Sept. 11 this year. For more information, click on http://www.sfpicklefest.ca/. TAX DUE DATE Here’s your tax reminder, Smiths Falls. The first installment of taxes is due on June 30, said director of administrative and planning services, Elaine Mallory. AIRPORT FACTS PRESENTED Claude Brett, president of the Smiths Falls Flying Club, present-

ed statistics and facts pertaining to the Russ Beach Smiths Falls/ Montague Airport as a follow-up to the April 12 town committee-ofthe-whole meeting. The club has 194 members; Brett was unsure how many of these members are from Smiths Falls. In addition to a commercial business on site (Kolorfast), the airport also boasts a 4,000 square foot welcome centre, 51 hangars (and one under construction), and four taxiways. Users include the Ontario Provincial Police, the Department of National Defense, Air Cadets and air ambulances. The airport is owned by both the Township of Montague and the Town of Smiths Falls. It is operated by the Smiths Falls Flying Club. The town contributes $30,000 a year and the township, $10,000. Coun. Ken Graham thanked Brett for the presentation, saying the flying club is of “excellent value” to both the town and county. Mayor Dennis Staples referenced the 2008 economic impact study, which found that in 2007, the Russ Beach Smiths Falls/ Montague Airport supported a considerable level of economic activity which occurs primarily within the Town of Smiths Falls. The report also states when direct, indirect and induced forms of economic activity are included, the airport generates: 13 jobs, over $355,000 in annual labour income, nearly $1 million of total gross domestic product activity and $196,000 in taxes.

Smiths Falls This Week - JUNE 17, 2010

: SFDCI~ a bird’s eye view

Congratulations goes out to SF’s Environmental Club on becoming gold certified by EcoSchools. Last year the club earned the school a silver certification, but this year they decided to make it their goal to earn gold. They have been working very hard at this goal all year, completing different environmentally friendly tasks to earn points towards their certification. Some of the activities the environmental club organized and participated in were; installing more recycling bins and teaching students in the school how to properly dispose of their waste, worm composting, turning all lights in the school off to save energy during period 5 once a week, and organizing a waste reduction week. All of these activities helped students become more informed about what is and what isn’t enviAbove: The environmental club smiles for the camera after being awarded their ronmentally friendly. Students in the environ- gold certification.

A Gold Certified

mental club found out about their gold certification on Friday, June 4th and were estatic about the news. “It’s just so wonderful, everyone’s hard work has finally paid off. We really worked hard to get gold and it makes us all so proud. We get our picture on the Wall of Champions!,” said Melissa Thompson, a grade 12 student and member of the Environmental Club. SFDCI is now one of only 3 gold certified schools in the Upper Canada District School Board, once again setting an example for those around. A gold sticker will be placed on the plaque in the forum of the school to symbolize it’s new gold status. “I think we can continue our gold status next year, and hopefully start to impact not only the school but the community as well.” said Katie Spence.

CARDS OF THANKS

CARD OF THANKS

In memory of Jim (Doc) Halladay! We would like to give everyone a BIG THANK YOU for helping out so much. Our families for moving home to help care for Jim in his last weeks when they sensed I could not do it alone (my lifeline). His sentry guards, one on each side of Jim, all day, every day. All of the Adrain and Halladay families, friends and neighbours for coming to help in any way, keeping us fed at all times and for just being here. All who helped and prepared the luncheons between services at Mike’s and at the Crosby Lake Hunt Camp. The monetary envelopes that showed up everywhere mysteriously, the contributions to the Cancer Society, the Outdoor Club, churches, flowers and cards. To those who dropped everything to fix leaking taps, a runaway septic and poopy scooping. All caregivers from Community Service, Red Cross and Bayshore; Dr. Trickey for coming to the house when Jim could not go out; Scottyto-Hotty for keeping the grounds beautiful; Scotland’s Funeral Home for letting us all do things we wanted, all who came to his services, friends, co-workers, teammates from hockey and baseball. We walked you as far as we could, now you are home with the Lord. You are truly and deeply loved, respected and sadly missed. Our Circle of “Love” never ends. The Halladays, Adrains, children and grandchildren
