JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Rachel’s Challenge is coming to Stittsville. The program has been delivered in over 3,3000 schools and other venues in 50 states and six countries since its inception following the Columbine High School tragedy in the United States on April 20, 1999. Rachel Scott was the first person killed in the massacre but her acts of kindness and compassion along with the contents of her six diaries became the foundation for Rachel’s Challenge, one of the most life changing school programs in North America. She left behind a simple challenge to anyone who will accept it, namely treat others with kindness and compassion and you just may change the world you live in. Rachel’s Challenge will be at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville on Thursday, Oct. 7. There will be presentations to the students during the day, along with a training session for a selected group of students. Parents and members of the public will be able to experience Rachel’s Challenge at a special presentation at 7 p.m.

Twelve year old Megan Wall loves to write and will become a published author this week. The grade seven Goulbourn Middle School student will see her short story “Mica the Lonely Duck” published in “pot-pourri,” a bilingual compilation of winning poetry and short stories written by Ottawa’s young writers from the 2010 Awesome Authors Youth Writing Contest, a joint venture of the Ottawa Public Library and the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library Association. This is the fourth annual edition of pot-pourri and is featuring the entries, 52 in total, from 36 winners. The publication is being officially launched this week at a gathering at the Main Branch of the Ottawa Public Library in downtown Ottawa. Megan Wall received honourable mention in the short story category for those aged 9 to 11 years old. The idea for her story, “Mica the Lonely Duck,” arose when her uncle in Vancouver took her to a bird sanctuary when she was eight years old. She saw a lot of ducks at the sanctuary but one of them stood out due to a different appearance.

Megan Wall is not the only Goulbourn/Stittsville youth to have work included in the upcoming edition of “potpourri.” Charlotte Orzel, 17, a student at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville, has several entries in the book. She received first prize in the short story age 15-17 category for her story entitled “And the Seasons Go (A Change of Heart in Ten Parts),” second prize for her poetry “Heritage Season,” and an honourable mention for another of her poems, “Haunted Houses.” Another local youth, Christine Dingley of Stitts-
ville, won first prize in the poetry category for those aged 15 to 17 with her poem “Constellations.” It is being published in “pot-pourri.” Every edition of “potpourri” to date has received rave reviews and this year’s edition should be no exception, at least in the view of Jane Venus, manager of the Ottawa Public Library’s Children and Youth Services. “Each year this contest brings to us stories and poems that dazzle us with insight, word play, humour and amazing talent,” she says. “This latest edition of ‘pot-pourri’ once again is a great read for everyone.”

RACHEL’S CHALLENGE, FROM 1
Here comes 9 RUN RUN JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF When “free” and “run” come together, what do you have? None other than the first annual Ottawa Emergency Services’ Run happening right here in Stittsville on Saturday, Oct. 23. This 9 RUN RUN event is featuring both a half marathon on a scenic country route or a 3K family fun walk/run. Members of the city of Ottawa’s fire, police and paramedic services will be taking part in these events, so participants will have a chance to run alongside these individuals. That’s why the event is urging participation based on the slogan “Support The Services That Support Us.” Free comes into the picture because those who register for this 9 RUN RUN will receive a free iRun Magazine, a free post race lunch, a free tech t-shirt for the half marathoners, a free cotton t-shirt for those in the 3K family run walk/run, free parking and free medals. There will also be some great door prizes and kids will be happy, with the presence of some hands-on displays.
Registration for the race can be done on line at www.9runrun. ca or at www.events.runningroom.com/site/?raceId=5872. Registration must be done by Tuesday, Oct. 19 at midnight. This inaugural Ottawa Emergency Services’ Run will be raising funds to support Project s.t.e.p., a community initiative
to address the need for residential substance abuse treatment, education and prevention for youth. The s.t.e.p. portion of the project name refers to support, treatment, education and prevention. Brenda Tirrell of Stittsville is the race director for this 9 RUN RUN event.

The 9 RUN RUN is a fundraising event for project s.t.e.p. which is to help youth drug treatment and abuse programs.
Everyone is welcome to attend. At the presentation, they will see a powerful video/audio presentation of Rachel’s life and the Columbine tragedy. This presentation usually holds those watching spell bound throughout its one hour duration. It also motivates those watching to effect positive change in the way that they treat others. The session will end with a specific challenge to parents and community members about how they can reinforce the decisions that their youth will be making as a result of the program. This will include positive words, attitudes and actions which will make the school a safe learning environment for all students, reducing violence and bullying. Sacred Heart principal Cindy Owens would like to see as many parents as possible out for the Thursday evening presentation as parents will have an important role in reinforcing what the students learn in the program during the day. “The idea is to impact our school climate,” she says, ensuring that it is place of positive actions where students and staff treat others with kindness and compassion. The students who will be involved in the training session will be specifically selected from their existing roles as peer helpers or leaders with The Well program at the school or other roles at the school to become leaders of the Rachel’s Challenge program at Sacred Heart. This will build the program’s ongoing sustainability at
the school. Sacred Heart is one of four Ottawa Catholic School Board high schools which are hosting the Rachel’s Challenge team next week. Rachel’s Challenge began following Rachel Joy Scott’s death in the Columbine High School tragedy in the United States in 1999. Immediately after the tragedy, her father Darrell began to speak around the United States, using writings and drawings from Rachel’s many diaries to illustrate the need for a kinder, more compassionate nation. Mr. Scott is still involved today, along with 30 other speakers, who are carrying Rachel’s simple but profound message around North America, especially to schools. Rachel’s Challenge wants to inspire, equip and empower every person to create a permanent positive culture change in their school or community by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion. For schools, Rachel’s Challenge wants to create a safe learning environment for all students by re-establishing civility and delivering proactive anecdotes to school violence and bullying. Rachel’s Challenge also wants to improve academic achievement by engaging students’ hearts, heads and hands in the learning process and to provide students with a social and emotional education that is both colour blind and culturally relevant. Parents and adults are important in this whole process as they must be aware of the program and be ready to inspire, equip and empower students to effect permanent positive change.

Nominations wanted for provincial youth awards While the current municipal election campaign will result in winning candidates responsible for making the community a better place, they are not the only ones who do this. Indeed, there are numerous young people in our community who do much community building without any real recognition. Indeed, many young people today understand what the word “community” is really all about and they give their time and effort to various endeavours and causes. They are, really, community leaders in their own right. These youth are all over the community, volunteering with local groups and sports teams and just helping out various
causes in many ways. One way of recognizing these deserving youth who help others and help make better communities is through the Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards. This awards program is coordinated by the Ontario Community Newspapers Association (OCNA) to which the Stittsville News belongs. Any Ontario resident aged 6 to 17 is eligible to receive an Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Award. Nominations are possible in one of four areas: a person involved in a worthwhile community service; a special young person contributing to the community while living with a physical or psy-
chological limitation; someone who has performed an act of heroism; and a young person who has shown a commitment to making life better for others by doing more than what would be normally expected. Up to 12 nominees will be chosen to receive these provincial awards. Each nominee, though, will receive a certificate. The nomination deadline for the 2010 Ontario Junior Citizen of the Year Awards is Nov. 30. Nomination forms are available at www.ocna.org or by calling the OCNA at 905639-8720, ext. 239.
SPORTS MINDED YOUTH
Wristbands on sale to help Rory Bradley Bursary Fund
SPECIAL TO THE NEWS
JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF It’s a way of remembering the late Rory Bradley. It’s a way of showing support for RAMS hockey. And it’s a way of raising funds for the Rory Bradley Memorial Bursary Fund and in so doing, helping sports-minded youth as they pursue post secondary education. Quite a list of benefits, all tied up with the purchase of a five dollar wristband or bracelet. What a great deal! Everyone in the Stittsville hockey community was heartbroken when longtime Stittsville Minor Hockey Association coach and convenor Rory Bradley passed away suddenly last spring. He was loved and respected by everyone in the hockey community and his presence behind the bench, in the dressing room and anywhere in the arenas will be missed by all those who knew him or played for or with him. He was always willing to support youth in hockey and his friendly and ready smile will long be remember. After his death, the Rory Bradley Memorial Bursary Fund was established in his memory to ensure that his passion for hockey and his sense of community continue on in the community. This new bursary fund will provide support for the post-secondary education of sports minded youth in the Stittsville/Kanata area. To help raise funds for the Rory Bradley Memorial Bursary Fund, the team coached by Dave Janssen is now selling wristbands for five dollars each, with all of the proceeds going to the bursary fund. “Rams Hockey RB”, showing support for Rams minor hockey while also remembering Rory Bradley, is printed in white on the red and black wristbands. Anyone who wishes to purchase one of these wristbands or if any minor hockey teams want to purchase them or if any teams want to help sell the wristbands, please contact Dave Janssen at 613-831-0449 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The wristbands can also be purchased at the canteen at the Stittsville District Community Centre.

Raising $5,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO). Awesome. Setting a goal to double this fundraising total this year. Challenging. Reaching and surpassing this goal. Priceless. But this is what has happened at Therien Martial Arts & Fitness in Stittsville and so you can imagine the happiness and pride which filled the Cedarow Court premises of Therien Martial Arts & Fitness last Saturday when a giant cheque for $12,635 was formally presented to CHEO’s vice-president of development and corporate relations, Kevin Keohane. “You guys should all be really proud of yourselves,” Mr. Keohane said in accepting the giant cheque presented to him by three and half year old Trinity Cooligan, daughter of Therien Martial Arts & Fitness Stittsville owner Randy Cooligan. He said that for a club the size of this Stittsville group to raise a donation of this size is remarkable. He praised Randy Cooligan and his wife Julie for their ongoing commitment to CHEO. He noted that while their story was
told on the 2007 CHEO telethon, they have remained involved with CHEO ever since. Mr. Keohane noted that the things learned by students at Therien Martial Arts & Fitness are just as much about values as about the martial arts. In his remarks at the presentation ceremony, Randy Cooligan of Therien Martial Arts & Fitness told how the facility decided to raise funds for CHEO every year. He said that a $5,000 goal was set last year which was met but this year an even higher goal of $10,000 or double the amount was set. He admitted to being worried whether such an ambitious total could be achieved but in the end a total of $12,635 was raised. Indeed, the giant cheque which was presented only showed $10,000 having been raised since it had to be made up in advance but when the final fundraising was done, the goal was far exceeded. Helping CHEO is important to Mr. Cooligan and his family because his daughter Trinity was a patient at CHEO for seven months when she was born. Mr. Cooligan credits CHEO with helping his family through a very tough time while saving the life of his daughter.

Recipes from the fridge of Stittsville’s baker Best Ever Rolled Oat Cookies. Prize Butter Tarts. Soft Molasses Drop Cookies. Scotch Shortbread. Butter Fudge Squares. Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sound good? You bet. And there more where these came from as these are only some of the 20 recipes found in the newly published cookbook “The Recipes off my fridge.” This new cookbook features some of the recipes used by Jessie Delahunt, Stittsville’s one time baker who operated the Old Log House Bake Shop on Carp Road from 1962 to 1972. She used these recipes so often, both for customers and her family, that she always had them readily at hand, stuck to her fridge with magnets. Hence the cookbook’s name: “The Recipes off my fridge.” And, to add to their authenticity, the recipes are published on replicas of the four inch by six inch lined cards which Mrs. Delahunt used. And not only that but the recipes are reproduced in her own printing, just like the original recipe cards that were on her fridge. And, further adding to their realistic reproduction, some of the cookbook recipe cards are discoloured and even have a splatter here and there, just like the original cards on the fridge had. The cookbook features spiral binding and a design that allows it to stand up, with the recipe cards being able to be flipped over to
bring to sight the next one in the book. This cookbook came about as a family initiative. When Mrs. Delahunt moved from the Carp Road log house that had been her home for over 50 years to take up residence at the Stittsville Villa Retirement Community, her family took the recipe cards down off her fridge and put them away. It was thought that they would be reproduced for members of the family but the idea grew and evolved into the cookbook that is now available for sale at St. Elmo’s Fire, the craft and arts store that is now located in the Carp Road log house. While the cookbook does not feature all of the recipes used by Mrs. Delahunt during her years running her bakery, the ones included are the most common ones that she used and certainly favourite ones for her family. The cookbook features a wintertime view of the log house, including the prominent stop sign out front that was frequently struck by wayward motorists, as was Mrs. Delahunt’s roadside mailbox. Mrs. Delahunt was back at the log house last Saturday afternoon as Christina Lovisa of St. Elmo’s Fire hosted a “meet the baker” open house where she greeting many longtime friends as well as others who purchased the cookbook. She readily autographed all cookbooks which were purchased.

They eventually had six children and Mrs. Delahunt is

now matriarch of a family that numbers well over 50 counting all of the grandchildren and descendants. Mrs. Delahunt was self-taught, baking as a wife and mother before venturing into the business. She first took her baking to MacDougall’s Sales and Service, a longtime appliance and furniture business on Stittsville Main Street where the baking was displayed on stove tops and other appliances as something of an advertising gimmick. But the success of the baking soon led to Mrs. Delahunt setting up a bake shop in the family’s log house on Carp Road. She recalls many a time of getting up at two o’clock in the morning to begin her baking and still being at it at 10 at night. One of her most memorable baking projects was filling an order for 1,000 dozen cookies and squares for a customer. It was the biggest order that she ever received and it took her a month of getting up at 2 a.m. daily to complete the baking. Mrs. Delahunt ran her Old Log House Bake Shop on Carp Road for ten years before the long hours, the heavy workload and, quite simply, her legs from constant standing caught up with her and she closed the bake shop in 1972. But now, thanks to the publishing efforts of her family, her most common recipes are available for one and all, authentically reproduced in her own printing, just like she had them stuck on her fridge for quick and easy reference. It’s going to lead to many being able even now, 38 years after she closed

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF You can now enjoy owning art while at the same time helping out the Stittsville Food Bank. It is all thanks to the artists involved with the “Group of Three” gallery at the Wild Wood Steak & Chophouse at the Amberwood Golf and Country Club. The three Stittsville artists – Ross Connor, Bernice Wills and Vera van Baaren – have decided that 20 percent from the sale of any of their paintings on display at the gallery will be donated to the Stittsville Food Bank. This means that a person can not only purchase a unique painting by one of these artists but also in so doing can assist the Stittsville Food Bank. Donations of food
items are important for the Food Bank but monetary donations are also vital in order to provide those in need in the Stittsville area with all the necessary items, some of which have to be purchased rather than received as donations. Ross Connor is the coordinator for the “Group of Three” gallery at the Wild Wood Steak & Chophouse at Amberwood. The gallery was established earlier this year after Mr. Connor painted a nine foot by eight and a half foot mural featuring the geometric style of art in the staircase at the clubhouse. After it was completed, Wild Wood owner Richard Yee suggested hanging paintings in the restaurant and so the new gallery was developed. The gallery is focused in the front entrance, outside the members’ lounge and along the hallway that stretches to the wash-
room area. Ross engaged two other artists to join him in exhibiting in this “Group of Three” gallery, namely watercolour artist Bernice Wills and artist Vera van Baaren who does both watercolours and acrylics. The gallery also features biographical sketches of the three artists. The art on exhibit sells for prices ranging from $300 to $500 each. Ross Connor is a self-taught artist with a unique style which features the depiction of
brightly coloured birds and fantasy forms. The style is lively, imaginative and colourful, geometric art at its most colourful. Bernie Wills’ involvement with art goes back to the 1960’s but she really became more intense with her watercolours from 1985 on. She has received several awards from art shows for her work. Vera van Baaren attended an academy of art in her youth but began painting seriously again in the late 1990’s. She also has received several awards for her painting.

NOTICE To All Stittsville Commuters
Male voices start singing JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF A room filled with the impressive, rich sound that can only come from a collection of male voices. This is what happened at the inaugural rehearsal of the new Goulbourn Male Chorus held in the basement hall at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Stittsville. Miraculous, you say. Hardly. Rather, it was the natural result of the coming together of men who are eager and want to sing. Going into the first rehearsal, the new Goulbourn Male Chorus had 13 singers registered to participate. Music director Robert Dueck, who has been the driving force behind the creation of this new male chorus for singers from the Stittsville/Goulbourn area, had been eagerly awaiting the start of rehearsals for the group. It turned out to be an enjoyable evening for him on Monday, Sept. 20 when the fledgling chorus assembled for the first time. “These men can sing,” was his reaction. And they proved it. Music was distributed and after a few vocal exercises sung to warm
up the voices, the new group eagerly dove into the music, filling the room with a rich male chorus sound. Mr. Dueck knows now that it is going to be a real pleasure directing the group. Right now, besides getting to know each other, the group is starting to prepare a Christmas repertoire as it looks forward to possible Christmas music making opportunities. This will be in keeping with a goal of this new male chorus which is to give back to the community through the gift of song. This new Goulbourn Male Chorus will continue to rehearse on Mondays from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Stittsville. There is a $40 per session (two per year) membership fee to help cover the cost of music packages and to build a music library. Additional chorus members are most welcome to join. For more information about the new Goulbourn Male Chorus, phone the St. Andrew’s church office at 613-831-1256 or email Male Chorus music director Robert Dueck at firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘Cultural Stittsville’ program JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF It’s called the Goulbourn Recreation Complex. But last Sunday it could just as easily been called the Goulbourn Cultural Complex thanks to the “Cultural Stittsville” program hosted by the Ottawa West Arts Association. Art from numerous artists filled the lobby area at the GRC, thanks to the presence of portable wire backdrops on which the artwork was hung. This was Stittsville’s contribution to a new crossCanada initiative emphasizing culture. Not only was art on display, featuring the work of such artists as Vera van Baaren, Louise Barker, Jeanette Loh, Sue PerleyRobertson, Sylvie Sabourin, Libby St. Louis, Aud Karin Sund and Sheila TurnerWhalen, but also there were several demonstrations as well, such as textile fibre art, water painting and drawing. In addition, the GRC lobby was filled with the culture of music when the Goulbourn Jubilee Singers performed there in the afternoon, adding to the cultural diversity on display.
At the opening ceremony for the “Cultural Stittsville” event, city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri noted that although it was a dull day outside, the interior of the GRC was definitely a much brighter place inside thanks to the colours displayed via the artwork. He praised the GRC as a venue not only for recreation but also as a facility where the arts side of the community can be displayed. Stittsville Village Association president Metin Akgun congratulated the Ottawa West Arts Association for planning this Stittsville participation in a nation-wide celebration of culture. He outlined the SVA’s commitment to the arts with the holding of its “Arts and Authors in the Park” event at Village Square in downtown Stittsville every spring. He said that culture in Stittsville has benefitted from the permanent art gallery which the Ottawa West Arts Association maintains in the GRC lobby. He noted that this inaugural “Cultural Stittsville” event did not touch all of Stittsville’s culture. Besides the Goulbourn Jubilee Sing-
ers and their music, Stittsville enjoys the cultural talents of numerous authors of fiction, children’s books and other literature. He noted as well the contribution of the Goulbourn Township Historical Society to the culture of the area. Mr. Akgun said that the new Stittsville concert band and now the Stittsville dance band have added to the musical scene of the community as have the presence of several highly talented youth bands. He also mentioned the art and talent which the Youth Connexion program in Stittsville had displayed at this year’s Art and Authors In the Park event. This also included entries in a poetry contest. “All I can say is the culture is rich and alive in Stittsville and encompasses all ages,” Mr. Akgun said. Terry Sametz, an Ottawa artist who helped set up the Ottawa West Arts Association, praised the GRC as one of the city’s nicest facilities and praised “Cultural Stittsville” for its impact. “It’s really a dynamite display,” he said about “Cultural Stittsville.”

Variety of views with candidates JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF Views on the possible introduction of a borough model of municipal governance range from gung ho to thumbs down among the five candidates in the RideauGoulbourn ward for the upcoming election. Incumbent councillor Glenn Brooks, who is seeking re-election, told the 125 at a candidates’ meeting sponsored by the Richmond Village Association at the Richmond Memorial Community Centre hall on Wednesday evening, Sept. 22 that a borough system will give local communities an opportunity to make decisions locally on such issues as a new stop sign on a residential street. As one who has already set up a ward council as a precursor of such a borough system, councillor Brooks said that a borough form of governance would empower people to make decisions in their communities and would get them involved. But candidates Bruce Webster, Scott Moffatt and Iain McCallum all indicated absolutely no support for a borough system. Bruce Webster, a past president of the Richmond Village Association (RVA), said that there is no need for another layer of government in the form of a borough system. He said that the RVA has been a vocal voice for the community of Richmond and has made connections with the Ottawa Police Service and city hall. “We don’t have to have a borough system,” he said. “We can take care
of things ourselves.” And for things that cannot be handled through a community association, the councillor should be contacted and engaged, Mr. Webster asserted. Scott Moffatt said that a borough model involved unelected and unaccountable people would be ineffective, adding that it is the councillor’s job to seek out people’s opinions and concerns. His idea is to give more authority to city council’s Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee, taking some powers away from the full city council. Larger issues would still be handled by the full city council. He believes that this would be the most efficient and effective way to bring more decision making closer to the people. Iain McCallum admitted to not being a fan of the borough system, questioning just who would sit on such a borough governing body. He feels that associations like the RVA serve as the eyes and ears of a community and that these existing relationships can be encouraged. He does not see the need for another level of government, namely the borough system. Candidate Bruce Chrustie said that his vision of the borough system is much like that being espoused by mayoralty candidate Jim Watson, involving four to six councillors who will make decisions about community-specific issues. He feels that such a system is doable and implementable and of such a nature that people would not be afraid of the change involving such a system.

Lions collecting on White Cane Day this Saturday est award and one commemorating the inspirational and blind Helen Keller, but also the Harry A. Newman Diabetes Award, a Lions award given to those who have worked to battle diabetes which is a disease known to adversely affect peopleâ€™s vision. This Saturday, Oct. 2, as Lions Club members are out in the community, accepting donations on White Cane Day, they will also be providing education materials about blindness and vision impairment problems and what the Lions Clubs around the world do to support the blind and vision impaired. Lions Club members both in Stittsville and elsewhere use White Cane Day to promote awareness of the aspirations, hopes and abilities of people who are blind or who are visually impaired. Funds collected on White Cane Day and throughout the monthlong White Cane Campaign go to help provide services and programs for those who are blind or visually impaired. The Stittsville District Lions Club has been recognized within the Lions community for its White Cane Day efforts in support of â€œHelping the Sightless.â€? The generosity of Stittsville and area residents in the past has led to this recognition. Lions Clubs, including the Stittsville District Lions Club, have demonstrated over the years a commitment to sight conservation through such initiatives as eyeglass recycling, guide dogs, sight partnerships and

SPECIAL TO THE NEWS This Saturday, Oct. 2, you will be seeing members of the Stittsville District Lions Club out and about at various locations in Stittsville, accepting donations for the Lions White Cane Campaign in support of programs and services for the blind. When you do see these Lions on duty, working to help those who cannot see, take a moment and make a donation. The month of October is when the Stittsville District Lions Club takes part in the Lionsâ€™ annual White Cane Campaign. This program is meant to educate people about blindness and to raise funds to support programs and services for the blind. Besides this Saturdayâ€™s community White Cane Day blitz which will see Lions members accepting donations at various locations in Stittsville including Brownâ€™s Your Independent Grocer, Giant Tiger, Shoppers Drug Mart and the LCBO, the Stittsville Lions are also holding a fundraising euchre tournament on Saturday, Oct. 23 at the Lions Hall in Stittsville. In recent years, the Stittsville Lions have been at Villagefest in Stittsville, promoting the White Cane Campaign. However, this year Villagefest was moved up on the calendar, taking it away from the month of October which is the traditional month for Lions Clubs to promote vision health through their White Cane Campaign. Thatâ€™s why this year White Cane Day in Stittsville is standing on its own this Saturday, Oct. 2 and Lions Club members are hoping that the generosity of Stittsville and area residents will result in a successful day of fundraising to help in the provision of services for the blind, something that Lions Clubs have made their focus for years. Indeed, no one has worked harder and longer at promoting awareness of blindness and vision impairment in society than current Stittsville District Lions Club president Ken Jones. He has not only taken part in White Cane Day, soliciting donations while stationed at a community retail outlet, but he has been involved in the annual Blind Anglers Fishing Tournament which Lions Clubs sponsor each spring. His dedication to promoting help for the blind has earned president Jones not only the Helen Keller Award, one of Lionismâ€™s high-

There are some â€œthank youâ€™sâ€? to give after another Richmond Fair. Thanks go to the Richmond Agricultural Society and particularly Dale and Marlene Greene for once again giving the Richmond Legion the privilege of leading the annual Fair parade. Keith Thurrott was the Legionâ€™s parade marshal as usual. There was a full colour party as well as five vintage army vehicles. Each vehicle had at least one Legion member in it as a rider. Jeff Mosher of the Ontario Military Vehicle Association had his M37 while Giles and Caroll Chartrand from Cantley, Quebec had their M35 in the parade. This was the huge troop vehicle with seating in the back for more than a dozen people. Major Mike Calnan from the Swords & Ploughshares Museum in Kars provided a 1970 United Nations jeep, a Canadian Military Pattern which is a truck, and a 1953 three-quarter ton truck towing a World War Two anti-tank gun. Major Calnan is currently serving in the armed forces and so he arranged for Jason Cox and his son William as well as Ansis Strenge, Willow Duncan and Quinn Duncan to serve as drivers and assistants. Major Calnan also heads the 1st Anti Tank Regiment Royal Canadian Artillery Cadet Corps in which Quinn is a bombardier. Contact Major Calnan at email@example.com for more information. A big thank you goes to all of the Legion members who turned out to ride in the vehicles. Your presence made all the difference. The plan is
to do it again next year. The annual Ladiesâ€™ Auxiliary tea and sale will be held on Sunday, Oct. 24 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Richmond Legion Hall. The bake and book tables will be back. High school students who are looking for community service hours should think about helping at the Legion. You can volunteer to help in the kitchen at any of our functions. Another way is to take part in the annual poppy campaign. Help is needed for sure on Saturday, Oct. 30 when the branch does its annual door-to-door poppy canvas to collection donations and give out poppies. Anyone wanting to help out, high school student or adult, should appear at the Legion Hall between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. that day. Pick up a route map, a supply of poppies and a donation box and you will be on your way. Each route takes about an hour, depending on walking speed. There will be coffee and donuts in the morning and there will be lunch, probably soup and sandwiches, at the Legion Hall at noon. This is a great way to do good in the community and, for high school students, to earn some service hours. Everyone, by the way, is welcome to join the Legion. There is no military affiliation required any longer. Exercise class is held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Legion Hall. Coffee is served every morning at 10 a.m. Everyone in the community can join in these activities. Congratulations to John and Kay Harrison on their 60th wedding anniversary.

Huskies start off with win The Sacred Heart Huskies howled on offense in their first game of the high school senior football league season on Thursday, Sept. 23. Playing the Merivale High School Marauders at the Nepean school, the visiting Huskies scored 19 points on their way to a 19-0 shutout victory over the home team. Running backs Cole Hodge, with two, and Alex Demidenko scored touchdowns for the Huskies in this game, while Cody Scott was good on one of the converts. Cody also tried two field goals during the game, both of which were unsuccessful. One was from the 35 yard line and was just wide of the uprights. “It’s always nice to start with a win,” Huskies head coach Curtis MacNeil said. While admitting that the Huskies defense played a strong game, coach MacNeil was particularly happy with the performance of the offense led by returning quarterback
Ryan Paquette. He liked the way that the offense marched the ball down the field on occasion. This season the Huskies offense is benefitting from the luxury of having a trio of dangerous running backs, Alex Demidenko, Cole Hodge and Ryan Elchakieh. In addition, the Huskies have an offensive weapon in slot back Emmanuel Kwofle who can run with the ball when given the opportunity. This was evident in the Merivale game when he scampered for about 60 yards, evading tacklers all the way. He was downed on the six yard line but the Huskies ended up scoring on a run up the middle, the first JOHN CURRY PHOTO touchdown of the game.

SOUTH CARLETON STORM
Downhill after first quarter It was a good first quarter for the South Carleton High School Storm last Friday, playing the powerful St. Mark High School Lions in senior high school football on the Lions’ home field in Manotick. The teams emerged from this first quarter locked in a 0-0 battle. But this soon ended as St. Mark’s scored on a 60 yard touchdown run on the first play of the second quarter and after the successful convert made it 7-0, the Lions never looked back. The Storm ended up deep in their own zone after the ensuing kickoff, aided by the brisk breeze which swept over the field from west to east throughout the game. A South Carleton fumble on the Storm 17 yard line resulted in another St. Mark touchdown, this time an eight yard run. With the convert, it
was now 14-0 for the Lions. A single on the ensuing kickoff, thanks again to the wind, made it 15-0 and before the second quarter was finished, St. Mark added another touchdown on a 20 yard run. No convert this time but it was still 21-0 for St. Mark at half time. In the third quarter, St. Mark took the opening kickoff and marched up field against the wind, eventually scoring another converted touchdown to make it 28-0. In the fourth quarter, St. Mark scored a single on a wind-assisted punt for a 29-0 lead. The Lions then picked off a pass by Storm quarterback John Shaw, running back the interception 25 yards for another touchdown. The convert made it 36-0 which is how the game ended. This was the opening game of the high school football season for both teams. Sunny, warm (28 degrees at the start of the game) prevailed.

Royals’ raﬄe SPECIAL TO THE NEWS The Stittsville Royals are helping out minor hockey players who cannot afford equipment. This is being done through a fundraising raffle, with the draw taking place on Monday, Oct. 4. The raffle is for tickets to the Ottawa Senators season opener on Friday, Oct. 8 and not just any tickets but ones in the second level. It’s bound to be a great game experience for the raffle winner. Those interested in helping out with this fundraising initiative to give a hand so that more youngsters can enjoy playing hockey while also having a chance at great seats at the Sens home opener will be able to purchase tickets in the raffle at the Stittsville Royals home game at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex on Shea Road in Stittsville this Friday, Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m. against the visiting Metcalfe Jets. As for the Royals, the team travelled to Shawville last Friday, Sept. 24 and came home with a 5- 3 victory over the hometown Pontiacs. The Royals power play was clicking in this game, with four of the team’s five goals coming with the man advantage. Mike Byrne scored two goals for the Royals in this game while singles went to Matt Kadolph, Scott Barnes and Steve Genier. New defenceman Joel Bush picked up two assists while Pat Morin and Dave Borden both had a single assist. Last Sunday afternoon at the GRC, the Stittsville Royals dropped a 5-2 verdict to the visiting Arnprior Packers. The game was tied 1-1 after the first period but the Packers erupted for two unanswered goals in the second period to take a 3-1 lead. Another two Packer goals in the third period sealed the Royals fate as the Royals only scored once in the third period.
Stittsville pair SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Two from Stittsville are being counted on this season by the Robert Morris University women’s hockey team near Pittsburgh. Brianna Delaney is entering her third season with the Robert Morris University Colonials and will be counted on to continue with her offensive play. She recorded the two highest single season point totals in school history in each of her first two seasons. Last season she scored 14 goals and added 17 assists while having a team-leading 108 shots on goal. Her sister Cobina Delaney is returning for her second season with the Colonials. She is one of four sophomores with the team who are being counted on to improve upon their freshman campaigns. The four, including Cobina, all had at least a dozen points in their rookie seasons last year. Both Brianna and Cobina are graduates of Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville. The Robert Morris University Colonials have been selected to finish fourth in College Hockey America as determined by a coaches’ poll.

JOHN CURRY NEWS STAFF This year’s Richmond Fair was a record setter. Richmond Agricultural Society general manager Dale Greene has confirmed that record crowds attended the 2010 Fair which was blessed with three days of sunshine from Friday, Sept. 17 through Sunday, Sept. 19. The Fair determines crowd numbers based on admission revenues and even though the admission charge for this year’s Fair had been raised by one dollar, the calculations still indicate that record numbers attended. Mr. Greene acknowledges that the Thursday night attendance was a “blowout” because of the rainy, windy and cold weather.
Thursday night allows free admission to the grounds with the main attraction being twoonie night on the midway. Because of the low turnout on the Thursday night, the midway revenues were down somewhat this year. It is also possible that general economic conditions as well as the lack of a ferris wheel on this year’s midway may have been factors as well in the reduced midway revenues at this year’s Fair. One victim of the poor weather on the Thursday night was the planned lawn tractor pull that evening. This event, which was a washout due to the weather, was making a return to the Richmond Fair calendar of events after an absence of a number of years. There were at least 40 entries signed up. But the Fair had a lot more successes than
sponsored by Aaron and Dawn Pope for be- 19 ing the best entry in the parade. The Harmony Gardens float also won in the business class. The Richmond Munster Minor Hockey float topped the organizations’ class in the parade, followed by the Richmond Co-operative Nursery School and St. John’s Anglican Church. Margaret Smith of Stittsville won in the antiques class while Kevin McAllister of Ottawa topped the novelty class. The Richmond Fair raffle’s grand prize draw, held at the Saturday night dance, saw Michel Latensee win the $1,000 first prize. Elaine Johns of Richmond and David Bobier of Munster both won $500 prizes while the $250 fourth prize went to June Dolan of Lanark. Winners of $100 prizes were Shawn Cowan of Manotick, Eileen Vaughn of Richmond, Bob Wilson of Lanark, Garnet Vaughn of Richmond and David Fairbrother of Stittsville. Stittsville News - SEPTEMBER 30, 2010
Record year for Richmond Fair
these Thursday night weather-related disappointments. The demolition derby on the Friday night drew more entries than ever, with 68 vehicles entered. The crowds were equally record breaking in size. Entertainers David Wilcox and Daisy Train in the arena sold out on the Friday night. The light and heavy horse shows again this year saw an increase in entries while the Fair’s sheep show, which Mr. Greene calls probably the best one in Canada, continues to grow under the leadership of Bob Bell. Parking at Lions Park adjacent to the fairgrounds worked out well again this year, for the second year in a row, with the parking lot filled with vehicles on both Saturday and Sunday. The annual parade on Saturday once again saw spectators line the parade route in the sunshine. Harmony Gardens of Richmond won the Aggie O’Brien Memorial Trophy
Great Fair for Museum SPECIAL TO THE NEWS The Goulbourn Museum had a great Richmond Fair this year. The Museum had its exhibit in the Agricultural Awareness building this year and that turned out to be a great location. Museum personnel and volunteers gave brief presentations to over 400 students and teachers on the Friday of the Fair. Over the three days of the Fair, there were 1,269 visitors to the Museum exhibit. This is a record number for the Museum booth, up by 365 people from last year’s visitor number.
Good guesser Six year old Zoe Gagnon, holds the jar of candies which she won at the Goulbourn Museum’s exhibit at the 2010 Richmond Fair for submitting the closest guess to the actual number of candies in the jar. Zoe guessed 111 candies in the jar. The actual number was 113 candies. PHOTO COURTESY OF GOULBOURN MUSEUM

Wins, medals, fun - what a recipe! SPECIAL TO THE NEWS Only one loss all season long. Great! Regular season and tournament gold medal wins. Super! Twenty-five girls having fun playing soccer together. Priceless! This was the 2010 season for the U15 Munster-Richmond Lions FC soccer team, a season that ended with a gold medal victory in the windup tournament at Beckwith Park near Carleton Place on the Aug. 28/29 weekend. This came on the heels of winning gold medals for the regular season championship.
All in all, the team had only one loss throughout the season. In the year-end tournament at Beckwith Park, the Lions FC overcame the extreme heat that weekend and won the championship by beating the Stittsville Brazil Ice Divas 2-0 in the final game. Special mention must be made of coaches Mike Rivoire, Frank Westerlaken and Blaine Johnson who kept the 25 girls in line all season long while ensuring that they had lots of fun. Joanne Corrigan is the teamâ€™s manager.
