Move over, Daniel Day-Lewis, here’s Sacred Heart’s Nick Maillet John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

What an eye ball! Clara Schyf balances a ball with her head during gym activity time at the After School Program at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex in Stittsville. See page 18, 19, 20 and 21.

EMC news - The Cappies is the local high school equivalent of the Academy Awards. And so in this vein, Sacred Heart Catholic High School’s Nick Maillet compares with 2013 Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis who won the Academy Award as the best actor in a leading role for his portrayal of Abraham Lincoln in the Civil War-era film “Lincoln.” That’s because Nick captured the Cappies Award for best lead actor in a play at last Sunday’s Cappies Gala at the National Arts Centre (NAC) in Ottawa. Nick played the role of Robin Hood in the play “The Trials of Robin Hood” which was presented at Sacred Heart High School last April, one of 17 high school plays entered in this year’s Canada’s Capital Cappies program. Nick was not the only Sacred Heart winner at last Sunday’s Cappies Gala. The costume crew of students Michelle Dingley, Sasha Newar, Ruby Odendaal and Casandra Woodward

from “The Trials of Robin Hood” captured the Cappies Award for best costumes. These were Sacred Heart’s two Cappies Award winners at the Gala, with “The Trials of Robin Hood” receiving a total of eight nominations in this year’s Cappies judging. Sacred Heart was also among those nominated for Best Featured Actor in a Play with Paul Smith as the King’s deer; Best Featured Actress in a Play with Sasha Newar as Silla Scarlett; Best Props with the team of Kellsie Alexander, Julia Anderson, Alison McLeod and Holly Whitney; Best Sound with the duo of Sam Gauthier and Ryan MacNeil; Best Supporting Actor in a Play with Kyle Curry who was Prince John in “The Trials of Robin Hood”; and Best Play for “The Trials of Robin Hood,” a comedy that had a cast of about 50 students with more working behind the scenes. The Cappies program is driven by the efforts of student critics who travel across the city to review shows. See CAPPIES, page 2

Shakespeare in the park John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Can’t get away to the Shakespearean Festival in Stratford this summer? Well, you can still get to enjoy a little bit of Shakespeare right here in Stittsville as Ottawa’s own professional Shakespeare company “A Company of Fools” will be at Alexander Grove Park to present “The Merry Wives of Windsor.” This Alexander Grove performance is the Stittsville stop in the “A

Company of Fools” annual Torchlight Shakespeare series this year, a series which begins on July 3 and runs through to Aug. 17 at various parks around the city of Ottawa. Presenting the show in different parks around the city gives residents throughout the city including here in Stittsville an opportunity to experience an outdoor Shakespeare production done by a troupe of six professional actors. See SHAKESPEARE, page 10

Cappies Gala at National Arts Centre Continued from page 1

These high school shows, both plays and musicals, are registered with the Cappies program. It is these critics who vote on the winners of the Cappies Awards in the various categories. Critics from Sacred Heart High School who reviewed a minimum of four productions and thus were able to take part in the voting included Taylor Hutchings as lead critic, Amy VanWell, Casandra Dana, Joel Curry, Kristyn Cooke, Kyle Curry, Lauren Hutchings and Morgan O’Grady. Sacred Heart High School teacher Marina Westbrook, who directed “The Trials of Robin Hood,” was also involved with last Sunday’s Canada’s Capital Cappies Gala, serving as one of three assistant directors for the event. The Gala includes not only the presentation of the Cappies Awards in the various categories but also features the presentation of scenes from each of the plays and musicals that are nominated in the best play and best musical categories. Among those serving as escorts for those receiving awards on stage at the NAC

at this year’s Gala was Joel Curry of Sacred Heart. This was the eighth annual Canada’s Capital Cappies Gala as the program began eight years ago thanks to the sponsorship of the Ottawa Citizen. This Cappies program in Ottawa is one of 15 chapters across North America. Cappies was the brainchild of a theatre arts resource teacher in Washington, D.C. where, with the assistance of teachers in the area and the Washington Post, the program began to promote high school drama and writing. It was eight years ago that Ottawa joined cities like Cincinnati, Dallas, Philadelphia

and Kansas City to become the first Canadian city to participate in the Cappies. Since then, chapters have started in the Niagara region and in Edmonton. Cappies has high standards of excellence as student critics must attend a training day to learn about the program. This past school year, as many as 40 critics attended each production from November through April.

tion of student achievements in theatre arts; and to enhance, celebrate and add excitement to high school theatre across North America. In its review of Sacred Heart’s “The Trials of Robin Hood” that was published in the Ottawa Citizen, the headline read “A Twist on a classic tale.” Student reviewer Raychel Schenk of Redeemer Christian High School wrote: “This hilarious show was exuberantly performed by Sacred Heart, and truly gave the audience an hysterically funny night to remember.” Another reviewer, Kathryn Hallet of Almonte and District High School, wrote: “Their (Sacred Heart’s) production included a great deal of audience involvement, which they executed smoothly from beginning to end.” Reviewer Rosalynn Berti of Redeemer Christian High School wrote: “Presenting the story of Robin Hood in a nearbefore-seen manner, Sacred Heart’s The Trials of Robin Hood was an enjoyable, highspirited production.” “The Trials of Robin Hood,” a play written by Will Averill, has King Richard, who has returned from the Crusades, forced to try to figure out what happened in his kingdom during his absence. He has to try

to determine if Robin Hood is a hero, a lovelorn sap or just a plain mean person. So, the story unfolds as told from the perspectives of Robin himself, Maid Marian and prince John. In an hilarious way, these three different stories are combined into one, albeit with three different endings, with the audience left to decide which one is true. “The Trials of Robin Hood” was first performed in 2009 in Kansas and since then has been performed in various locations across the United States. The play was presented in Prague in the Czech Republic in April 2012. The performance at Sacred Heart was the first time that the play had been presented in Canada.

Sasha Newar was one of the team which won the award for best costumes.

Provincial winner Special to the News

EMC news - She’s a provincial gold medalist. Now this week she is in Vancouver competing in a national competition. South Carleton High School grade ten student Bethany Mowat has achieved this by participating in the Skills Canada competition, competing in the workplace safety division. “I think the competition not only gives you work experience but it also helps kids learn about all of the different trades in Ontario and it makes them want to try different things,â€? says Bethany. Besides winning the gold medal in her division in the provincial competition, she also got to meet Ontario premier Kathleen Wynne who met with all of the students competing. This year the competition was held at RIM Park in Waterloo, Ontario over the course of four days – May 26 to May 29. Bethany competed on the last day, giving a ten minute presentation on how to use a table saw correctly and also completing a hazard assessment test. She competed against 14 others and admits that she was nervous right up until the day when she competed. “It wasn’t the actual competition that made me nervous,â€? she says. “It was the size of it, everything was so much bigger than what I was used to.â€? South Carleton High School teacher David Code served as Bethany’s mentor before and during the competition. Indeed, he was the ďŹ rst one to suggest to Bethany the idea of competing in this Skills Canada competition. Because of her provincial gold medal win in her division, Bethany is joining 150 other students representing Team Ontario to take part in the Skills Canada national competition in Vancouver this week, competing in the workplace safety division. In Vancouver, Bethany will be competing against high school and post-secondary students from across Canada. This Skills Canada national com-

petition started in 1994 and has remained as one of the only events of its kind. Each year the competition in Ontario brings together over 500 young people from all regions of the province to compete in over 40 trade and technology areas, ranging from animation to welding. This Skills Canada competition provides an opportunity for high school and post-secondary students who are studying in a skilled trade or technology ďŹ eld to be tested against exacting standards and against others of the same age from all across Ontario. For more information about the Skills Canada competition, check out the website at http://www.skillsontario.com/ .

EMC news - Three Richmond Scouts have received the Chief Scout Award. The Chief Scout Award is the highest level of award that can be earned by a Scout. The Chief Scout Awards were presented at a special awards ceremony held by the 1st Richmond Scout Troop on Thursday, May 16, at which Richmond Scouts Alex Marriner, Cameron Toswell and Davis Gallagher received their awards.

The ceremony was attended by 1st Richmond Scout Troop members, invited guests, parents of the award recipients and the 1st Richmond Scout Troop leadership team. City of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt was on hand to offer some comments and to present the recipients with special congratulatory certiďŹ cates to the three Chief Scout Award recipients on behalf of the city of Ottawa. The three recipients each gave a short speech reecting upon their experiences with

the 1st Richmond Scout Troop over the past four years. One of the highlights noted was their participation in the Great Lakes Jamboree held near London, Ontario in July 2012. A short reception followed the awards ceremony. As a permanent record of their achievements, these most recent recipients of the Chief Scout Award have had their names engraved on the Richmond Scouts’ Chief Scout Trophy. To earn the Chief Scout Award, a Scout must be certiďŹ ed in Standard First Aid, must have performed at least eight community service projects

and must have earned the World Conservation Award, among other requirements. Earning the Chief Scout Award is a multiyear effort requiring a Scout to set challenging goals and to work consistently toward them with some leader assistance. The Chief Scout Award is not easily achieved. Within the Scouts Canada Voyageur Council, to which the 1st Richmond Scout Troop belongs, only 57 out of the 1,150 Scout Troop members will be receiving the Chief Scout Award this year. A Voyageur Council awards ceremony to honour these Chief Scout Award recipients is being planned for Ottawa this month.

going to the grocery store and filling up a cart with groceries but in reality some in the community cannot do this because they have fallen on hard times. This is where the Food Bank is able to help out. At the annual general meeting, longtime Board secretary Helen Gunther was presented with a gift of appreciation for her work on behalf of the Food Bank. Helen has stepped down as the Board secretary. She has been replaced by Cindy Beauchamp who joins the Board. Sandra Sparkes, who has been director for food drives, has also stepped down from the Board of Directors.

Just say no to grow-op registry

B

uyer beware. And buyers of really big items â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like a house â&#x20AC;&#x201C; should be very wary indeed. Members of the Ontario Real Estate Association are calling on the province to create a provincial database of all homes that have been used as marijuana grow-ops or drug labs. There is a risk that a former grow-op could contain moulds and that a chemical lab location could have dangerous residues. A local realtor suggests a provincial list of these homes could be consulted by would-be home buyers before signing for a new home. It sounds like a reasonable plan until the effectiveness and cost of a drug house registry is considered. Who will pay to create the database, and more importantly, who will pay to keep it updated? No one wants to download busy-work onto police officers in multiple jurisdictions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; municipal, OPP and RCMP â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when they could be solving crimes or preventing them. The real estate agentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wish list would also be sadly incomplete. Police only know about homes where they find grow-ops or drug labs, leaving all the other illicit locations off any provincial registry. And it turns out there are pay-per-use websites that home seekers can check to learn the history of a

home. Given the size of a home purchase, the cost of adding in a history check doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem onerous. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the issue of spending public funds to create a database that will benefit only one part of the population. If you can afford a house, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re fortunate. Buying a house is a private transaction, so the responsibility should fall on the parties involved to do their due diligence. If we as a society mandate that the province must keep tabs on homes others may not want to buy, how long will it be until we need a registry of homes where murders have occurred? How about a list of houses with Bad Mojo or a report of ghosts? Buyer beware is a fact of life. Plus we have laws to dissuade anyone from selling a damaged home without telling the buyer. If someone knowingly sells a house and does not inform the buyer of hidden damage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from any source â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they could face charges of fraud. No one should have to live in a mouldy or damaged home, so people shopping for a house should do everything they can to make sure their purchase is healthy. If they hire a real estate agent, they should be confident that the agent has their best interests at heart and has done all possible research on their dream home.

Canada Post takes a flyer with junk mail plea

C

hances are you received a peculiar letter from Canada Post recently. It told you that you are part of a Canada Post database of people who had requested that no flyers be delivered. You might have forgotten that you ever did that. The letter then asked you to reconsider, by mailing in a postage-free card to Canada Postâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consumersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Choice Programâ&#x20AC;? saying that you would like to receive unaddressed mail at your address. Notice how big organizations, when they are urging you to accept something unpleasant, always give it a name like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Consumerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choiceâ&#x20AC;?? And speaking of unaddressed, this letter from Canada Post was addressed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dear Occupant.â&#x20AC;? Noting that the mailing was printed on sustainable paper that can be recycled, Canada Post told you that by refusing to accept unaddressed mail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which some cranky people insist on calling junk mail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we were missing out on coupons, catalogues, fundraising appeals from charities, municipal and community notices and product samples. Unaddressed mail, Canada Post says â&#x20AC;&#x153;can save you money and keep you connected with your local community.â&#x20AC;? What is this all about, really? Well, news

Funny Town reports say Canada Post lost money last year. As to the unaddressed mail, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a quote from a Canada Post spokesperson, seen in the National Post: â&#x20AC;&#x153;We deliver all types of mail and all are important to the senders. And we owe it to those who pay for the service to receive the most effective service for their dollars.â&#x20AC;? In other words: companies pay us money to put those flyers in mailboxes and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re leaning on us to get more mailboxes. Things have come to a pretty pass for a once-proud organization â&#x20AC;&#x201C; having to plead with customers to accept junk mail, masking its plea as an offer to help us keep connected with our local community. Of course, we all know why. Many Canadians, perhaps most, now receive their personal mail â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what we used to call â&#x20AC;&#x153;letPublished weekly by:

You may have the odd Luddite friend or eccentric uncle who still handwrites a letter, puts it in an envelope and puts a stamp on it, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about it. The great majority of communications you receive are on your computer. That even goes for junk mail, which is not in short supply in the digital world either. So we can understand that Canada Post is hurting and why, but there must be a more creative and positive way to be part of the solution than simply agreeing to receive more mail that we will never read (and causes more trees to be cut down). Apparently the most obvious solution â&#x20AC;&#x201C; asking companies, political parties and other organizations to put their stuff in envelopes and buy stamps like the rest of us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fly with Canada Postâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s partners in unaddressed mail. But maybe something else would work. For example, we would be far more receptive to a Canada Post campaign urging us to sit down and handwrite an angry letter to a politician, or a postcard to a grandchild, or a letter to the editor about something silly going on in the world, such as Canada Post trying to get us to accept junk mail. Canada Post could even make a side dollar or two by offering courses in handwriting,

which some of us have forgotten how to do. Perhaps we could even learn to write on sustainable paper that can be recycled. If we were to write such letters, we would have to buy stamps, which would be good for Canada Post. People on the receiving end â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except maybe for the politicians â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would be happy to get something in their mailboxes that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contain coupons or photographs of John Baird. True, all of this would mean that we would be using more paper and contributing to the destruction of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forests. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more important, a bunch of trees or the future of Canada Post?

$12,000 raised at annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ EMC news - Funds were raised and fun was had. And NASCAR driver Dave Connellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and his Fuel For Kids BBQ was a big part of both at the 21st annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville on Friday, May 24 and Saturday, May 25. Dave Connellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fuel For Kids BBQ alone raised $2,100 of the total of $12,000 which was raised at the event this year. All funds raised will be used to support various programs and to purchase classroom technology to benefit students at the school. But it was the appearance of Dave Connelly himself and his Dodge No. 82 race car that provoked lots of excitement and fun among those in attendance, both young and old as they excitedly got autographs and photos of Dave and his NASCAR car and team. Dave Connelly is a Canadian Tire

Series race car driver who has been competing on the circuit since 2007. During the school day, Dave gave presentations to all of the students at the school. Imagine the excitement when he spun a donut in the schoolyard. But there was much more happening at this annual Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ event. City of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri was on hand serving up sno-cones and cotton candy at the treat station which sold out. Councillor Qadri is a long time supporter of the Book Fair, Raffle and BBQ at A. Lorne Cassidy and extends his congratulations to everyone involved for such a great job organizing this wonderful event. There were over 22,000 gentlyused books for sale at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event so that there was a good chance that a book by a favourite author or on a desired subject could be found.

The annual Canada Day Seniors Breakfast hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri will take place on Monday, July 1 from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at the Sterling Howie Fire Hall on Stittsville

Those who purchased a raffle ticket had the opportunity to win one of 37 great prize packages. The success of this raffle is made possible by donations from the community and this year local businesses and individuals donated over $5,000 worth of prizes. Prizes this year included a priceless hockey stick signed by Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators, an electric scooter, Beats headphones, a three month membership to Cooliganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and a $400 gift card for eyewear.

Helping Wild Bird Care Centre Drum workshop at library Special to the News

Special to the News

EMC news - Injured wild birds in the area have been given a helping hand by three students at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville. These three students – Covey MacNamara, Kenna MacNamara and Morleigh McKenna – raised money and collected Canadian Tire money to donated to the Wild Bird Care Centre in Nepean. The three girls presented a bag containing these funds and the Canadian Tire money to Patty Summers, the ed-

ucation coordinator for the Wild Bird Care Centre, at a recent assembly at Guardian Angels Catholic School in Stittsville. The Wild Bird Care Centre is a registered charitable organization that operates its program under the authorization of Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment Canada’s Canadian Wildlife Service. The primary mission of the Wild Bird Care Centre is to assess, treat and rehabilitate sick, orphaned or injured wild birds before releasing them back to the wild.

These Torchlight Shakespeare shows are open to everyone and are based on “passthe-hat” donations rather than any admission charge. This makes the show available to everyone. The Stittsville presentation of “The Merry Wives of Windsor” will take place on Saturday, July 13 at 7 p.m. at Alexander Grove Park which is where the “A Company of Fools” has performed in previously as well. Those attending are reminded to take along a lawn chair or blanket to sit on as well as bug spray. This year’s show, “The Merry Wives of Windsor,” promises to be a rollocking good time. It revolves around Falstaff, a rogue with a penchant for drink, women and mischief, arriving in the small town of Windsor. Underestimating the intellect of the middle class,

he attempts to woo two married ladies at the same time, not realizing for a second that they are onto him and his antics. The wives of Windsor use and abuse Falstaff for their own amusement, giving him lessons in matters of the heart. This comedy was first published in 1602 but was probably written several years before. “A Company of Fools,” a professional Shakespeare company, was established in 1990 by a group of students in the University of Ottawa’s theatre department, with the troupe modeling itself after the rogue Elizabethan players who once entertained audiences out of doors as well as at London’s Globe Theatre. The annual Torchlight Shakespeare series, which has become the signature happening for “A Company of Fools,” began in 2003. The aim of “A Company of Fools” is to make Shakespeare theatre accessible and fun for audiences of all ages.

OSAID at Sacred Heart John Curry

john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Students at Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Stittsville are more aware of the dangers of impaired and distracted driving thanks to the energetic efforts of the school’s OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) group during this school year. The group, which probably numbers about 20 students, has been meeting every second Wednesday to plan events to help make fellow students more aware of the risks involved with

impaired or distracted driving. One of the OSAID group’s most effective awareness events has been providing “drunk goggles” to students and then having them try to ride a bike through a series of pylons. The goggles were provided by MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) and they worked – not one student managed to get through the course without hitting a pylon. Sacred Heart’s OSAID’s group also has held a bake sale to raise funds for MADD and its work in creating awareness about impaired driving.

Three Sacred Heart Catholic High School students who are members of the school’s OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) group this year are, from left, grade 12 student Melinda Mousseau; grade 12 student Alyssa Leeks; and grade 9 student Sarah Bruce.

The OSAID group has also presented a video showing the risks related to impaired driving to all of the students in the school. Even Sarah Bruce, a 14 year old grade nine student who joined the OSAID group this year, says that the OSAID message is a great one for students like herself to support, because even youngster students who do not yet drive frequently have older siblings who do drive. Members of the OSAID group made their

own t-shirts promoting OSAID. And presentations about the dangers of impaired driving do work. Alyssa Leeks, a 17 year old grade 12 student who joined the OSAID group this year, said that she decided to become involved with OSAID because of the presentation that she saw last year. OSAID is not Alyssa’s only extra-curricular activity at the school. She is also a peer mentor, helping a grade eight student this year.

The facility was opened to the public as part of Doors Open Ottawa. Brought to the community by the City of Ottawa, it is the city’s largest heritage and architectural event, giving visitors a rare opportunity to visit inside some of Ottawa’s most prestigious buildings and facilities. “Chaudière Falls is in the heart of Canada’s National Capital and has great historical significance,” said Bryce Conrad, President and CEO of Hydro Ottawa. “It fueled the industrial explosion of the mid 1800s by providing the water power for the vast complex of lumber mills that generated electricity that drove railroads and factories in the area after 1885.”

Inc.

Hydro Ottawa owns and operates three generating stations at Chaudière Falls. Generating Station No. 2 was originally built in 1891 by industrialist E.H. Bronson. The Bronson family was a leader in lumber-related industry in the Ottawa Valley. In 2001, the station was completely rebuilt. All of the generators were rewound, the turbines were replaced, the channels and dam structures rehabilitated and the station completely automated. However, all of the heritage elements of the station were preserved and the equipment looks as it did 100 years ago.

Before and After School Program at GRC John Curry john.curry@metroland.com EMC news - A robust Before and After School Program launched as a pilot at the Goulbourn Recreation Complex (GRC) in Stittsville last fall is now leading not only to an expanded program this fall but also to establishment of a satellite program at the Fringewood Community Centre. Currently there are 38 youngsters involved with the After School Program. The number of spaces available in the fall will be growing to 54 spots, with already 46 registered to participate. Kelly Bean, who is recreation program coordinator at the GRC, said that such Before and After School Programs have been offered elsewhere in the city in recent years but that the programs had not been implemented in Stittsville until last fall when parental input and requests urged such programs. This Before and After School Program is not a child care situation but rather is a daily recreation program that focuses on encouraging active activities, skill building and social engagement. Program participants utilize the GRC to the fullest. In addition to daily use of the gym and its equipment, participants swim on a weekly basis, use the new outdoor play structure daily and go skating a couple of times during the year. On a monthly basis, participants do mini-chef activities, are reading

buddies, experience “Toastmasters” style training and experience training in various sports such as badminton, basketball and soccer. The program’s weekly crafting workshops are not the typical “paper and paint” ones but see participants make everything from bandanas to sponge buddies to sand dough and more. There are also specialty clubs offered which are one-day workshops at which a specialized visiting instructor teaches subjects such as drumming, hip hop dancing, cooking and more. And parents have embraced the program because they and their children are familiar with the GRC because that’s where they go to swim, play basketball and skate. The program was started last fall as a pilot and on a relatively small scale to ensure that the program could be delivered successfully at the GRC. The program works with the Ottawa Student Transportation Authority to provide bussing to and from the GRC for the students involved in the program. Students from six different schools are currently involved in the program, coming from Ecole JeanPaul II, Guardian Angels, Stittsville Public School, A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School, John Young Elementary School and Hilson Public School. The second location at the Fringe-

wood Community Centre will allow even more schools to be served by the program, including St. Stephen Catholic School. For the nearby Stittsville Public School, counsellors will meet the children at the school and walk with them to the Fringewood Community Centre. While the Fringewood location will not have the swimming and skating facilities which were available to the program at the GRC, it still is an appealing location with adjacent soccer fields, a play structure and, most significantly, the ability to provide the program with its own space, unlike the GRC where the program shares space with other public uses. The new Fringewood location, just like at the GRC, will provide a program filled with physical activity, homework time, craft time and other activities. It will be an active busy program, Before and After School Program director Muhammad Zaman says, saying that it will be a “small, homey environment.” One of the attractions of these Before and After School Programs is that the counsellors are well trained and they see the children every day, forming a close relationship with them. The counsellors are trained in First Aid and CPR, have passed a Police Record Check and have taken training in behaviour management, creative discipline and other topics.

The ratio of counsellors to children is one to eight for the junior group (ages four and five) and one to 12 for the older group (ages 6 to 12), although efforts are made to keep the radio at one to 10 for this group if

possible. The Before School Program at the GRC has not proven as popular as the After School Program, with six children involved in the program which runs from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. The program revolves around activities in the GRC gym, with students being picked up by their school buses anywhere from 7:30 a.m. through to 8:45 a.m. This Before School Program is going to continue in the fall, despite the small numbers. Already five children have been registered for the program. The pricing for these Before and After Programs being offered by the city in Stittsville is competitive, with parents paying as low as $10 a day for the After School Program and $6.50 a day for the Before School Program. The After School Program normally goes something like this: open gym from arrival until 4 p.m., with a snack available; a craft or other structured activity at 4 p.m.; outdoor or gym activity at 4:30 p.m. until 5 p.m.; and then a quiet time until pickup by parents, although pickup can occur at any time through the program depending on possible other commitments like ballet, swimming and soccer activities. Older students also have the opportunity to do homework in a quiet room while at the program. This Before and After School program also has programs at the GRC which cover all of the PA days of the various school boards and also offers camps for times like March Break.

Norma Roy honoured as charter member Special to the News

EMC news - She’s the only remaining charter member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Eastview Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. It has now been 60 years since this Ladies Auxiliary was formed and at a 60th anniversary celebration on Saturday, May 25, Norma Roy of Stittsville, this remaining charter member, was a guest of honour. She was presented a 60 year service bar and pins by Joan French, the Ladies Auxiliary Past Provincial President. Norma Roy, who currently lives at The Revera Stittsville Retirement Community on Stittsville Main Street in Stittsville, joined the Royal Canadian Legion with her late husband Dan at the end of World War Two. She then

joined the Eastview Legion’s Ladies Auxiliary when it was formed in Feb. 1953. She is now the only surviving member of the 25 ladies who were charter members of this Ladies Auxiliary at the Eastview Legion branch. Norma held the positions of Past Officer, Sergeant-at-Arms, second vice-president and first vice-president with the Ladies Auxiliary at the Eastview Legion. She did not serve as president since she moved with her family to another area before she could assume the position. Norma Roy, who will be 92 years old this coming July, was born on July 14, 1921, one of 13 siblings (she is the eldest of three surviving members), and married her husband Daniel Roy in Oct. 1942. Mr. Roy passed away in

March 2001. She has lived most of her life in Ottawa and the area, growing up in Eastview (now Vanier) and living in the east end of Ottawa until the mid 1970’s. After living in Richmond from 1975 to 1980, she then lived in Sheridan Rapids outside of McDonalds Corners from 1980 to 1989. She and her husband moved to Stittsville around 1990. They were among the first residents of the Stittsville Manor when they moved into the newly built building in the winter of 1997. She lived there until last November when she decided to move “to the other side,” namely the Stittsville Villa which is now known as The Revera Stittsville Retirement Community.

Norma is remaining active at the Villa, including exercise classes three times a week, cards, bingo and organized outings with the Villa. She is a member of the Anglican Church Women (ACW) at St. Thomas Anglican Church in Stittsville. She also attends the Stittsville Diners Club hosted by the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. Norma has two daughters, Bonnie Newson of Kanata and Linda Mosley of Stittsville. Bonnie and her husband Ray Newson have two sons, Jeff (Alison) of Dunrobin and Neil (Magali) of Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Norma has two great grandchildren, five year old Jaydan and two and a half year old Annabelle.

Special to the News

22 Stittsville News EMC - Thursday, June 6, 2013

EMC news - The Goulbourn Township Historical Society has cancelled its upcoming program on Saturday, June 15 about the history of firefighting. The Historical Society took this decision because the program would conflict with the annual Park Party and BBQ hosted by city of Ottawa Stittsville ward councillor Shad Qadri at Village Square Park in Stittsville. A number of Stittsville’s firefighters and their firefighting equipment will be at this Park Party and not be able available for the Historical Society’s program. In addition, the Historical Society had been hoping to attract youngsters to this history of firefighting program. But the Park Party with its children’s games and activities also has this target audience. So, in view of this, the Historical Society has cancelled its June 15th program with the idea that it will be re-scheduled at a later date. This was the last scheduled Historical Society monthly program before a summer break. Following the summer break, the Historical Society’s monthly programs will feature the history of the Goodwood Masonic Lodge in Richmond, a presentation by Dave Brown on “Military Men” and a December meeting with a Christmas theme. Goulbourn Township Historical Society memberships are available for $15 a year for one person and $20 a year for a family membership. Memberships can be obtained by contacting the Historical Society at goulbournhistoricalsociety@gmail.com .

This year’s tournament is being held on Friday, Sept. 13 with a shotgun start at 12 noon, best ball format. In the past two years, this tournament has raised over $102,000 for the Friends of Hospice Ottawa Capital Campaign to establish hospice beds in Ottawa’s west end. Lennox, a longtime Richmond resident, had received end-of-life care at the Hospice at May Court and it was his experience with hospice care that has encouraged his family and friends to direct the funds

from this tournament held in his memory to establishing a residential hospice in the local area. A 3.6 acre site in Kanata, currently the home of Trinity Presbyterian Church, is being acquired for this future west end hospice facility. For more information about the tournament, please contact Kathleen Sterling at 613292-7684 or Ian McLaren at 613-614-7442… The Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association has a new website which can be found at www.rmmh.pointstreaksites.com … The flower baskets that the Richmond Village Association arranges to be hung every year on the poles along McBean Street are now up for this year, adding a touch of beauty to the street…Saundra Vandenberg and her son Matt of Rideau Pines Farm near Richmond had a display at the Rural Expo event at Ottawa city hall last Friday…The Goulbourn Museum is seeking clothes or costumes from the 1812 era that might be donated to the Museum.

This little beetle is a highly destructive insect native to the Asian Continent. It was discovered in the Windsor/ Detroit corridor in 2002. It has since destroyed millions of trees. It was discovered in the City of Ottawa in 2008. Since that time the City of Ottawa, Leeds and Grenville have been quarantined and the movement of ash wood and wood products is prohibited. The City of Ottawa removed 800 affected trees in the winter of 2011. The handling of ash trees that have been affected by emerald ash borer can take special techniques. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. strives to use the safest methods possible to remove dead and dangerous trees of all species. Our methods use equipment such as a crane, bucket or excavator as the job requires. Gardiner Tree Trimming & Removal Ltd. offers TreeAzin® Systemic Insecticide. It is an injectable insecticide formulated with azadirachtin, an extract of neem tree seeds (not neem oil). TreeAzin is registered by Health Canada’s Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA) (PCP 30559). Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment (MOE) scheduled TreeAzin® as a class 4 pesticide or “least hazardous that is

commercial”, with a class 11 active ingredient. TreeAzin is exempt from Ontario’s Cosmetic Pesticide Ban Act.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR: EAB is a slender, elongate insect about 1/3 - 1/2 inch long. It is widest just behind the head, gradually tapering back to the abdomen. It is a bright iridescent green to copper-green color, often with a copper colored area behind the head. Its body underneath the wings is a purplish-magenta color. Trees typically are killed in two to four years. When trees are first attacked by EABs, the symptoms are inconspicuous and hard to notice. By the end of the second year, thinning foliage and dieback in the crown begins to be

apparent. By the third year, there is severe dieback and little foliage. Ash can tolerate small numbers of EAB larvae but trees are girdled and killed when populations become more numerous. When the adults emerge, they create small, 1/8 inch D-shaped exit holes that are characteristic of this insect, although they can be hard to see. If you were to remove the bark on the trunk of a tree showing these symptoms, you should also find the larval galleries. Woodpecker attacks on ash could also indicate the presence of emerald ash borers.

Lawn bowling open house Perth coach now Special to the News

EMC sports - Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your chance to try out the sport of lawn bowling. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free and everything will be supplied â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the bowls, the instruction and even some treats. Now you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be that. This will all be happening at an open house which the Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club is hosting on Saturday, June 15 from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawn bowling green on Huntley Road at Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners just south of Stittsville. The lawn bowling green is located beside the Goulbourn Town Hall, which is the former Goulbourn municipal office. For more information about this upcoming lawn bowling open house, please contact Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club president George BurnsNichol at 613-831-0939 or via email at gjbn@rogers.com The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club has started another season at its grass lawn bowling facility at the Goulbourn Town Hall (former Goulbourn municipal building) at Stanleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corners. Again this year, there will be lawn bowling on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. And, as is the Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tradition, there always will be treats and refreshments with conversation afterwards. This happens in the tent shelter that was new last year that sits beside the lawn bowling

green, providing a relaxing spot where lawn bowlers can stay out of the sun or inclement weather while enjoying themselves right beside the lawn bowling green. This tent shelter was made possible with the cooperation of the city of Ottawa, with the city supplying matching funds of about $7,000 to facilitate the project. The Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club is always open to new members. In addition, the Club supplies the lawn bowls. All a new bowler needs is a pair of flat soled shoes, shorts and a light top. You will receive lots of instruction and advice on how to play the game. For those who cannot bowl during the day, the Club has begun offering lawn bowling on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. There is also bowling on Saturday mornings. And lawn bowling is reasonably priced, especially for those just taking up the sport. Indeed, the cost to be a Goulbourn Lawn Bowling Club member has been the same for the past five years: $60 for a first year member and then only $135 a season after that. Lawn bowling is a game that goes back to the possibly the 12th century and most definitely to the 13th century. It is also a sport that suits people from teens through to seniors because of its leisurely pace, its reliance on skill and its non-contact nature. And, first and foremost, it is a game that is mostly played outdoors, with lots of opportu-

nity for conversation and enjoying the fresh air. The objective in lawn bowling is to roll biased (that means that they are weighted, i.e. not perfectly round so that they will curve and bend as they move along the green) bowls so that they stop as close as possible to a smaller ball called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;jackâ&#x20AC;? which has been placed at the other end of the green. Lawn bowling is popular in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, parts of the United States, Japan and, of course, Canada. It is felt that lawn bowling may have begun back in the 12th century but definitely the game was being played in 13th century in England. This has been verified by a manuscript from the 13th century that contains a drawing representing two players aiming at a small cone. The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest bowling green can be found in Southampton, dating back to 1299. Today the sport is played in over 40 countries and is a sport at the Commonwealth Games. Lawn bowling is played on a rectangular, precisely leveled area with manicured grass, divided into parallel playing strips called rinks. In singles and pairs play, a player delivers four bowls in each end. In triples, three bowls are delivered by each player in an end while in fours, each bowler delivers two bowls in an end.

Perthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss is Stittsvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gain. Hamish Fraser, who was Coach of the Year in the MetroValley Conference of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League (EOJHL) this past season while guiding the Perth Blue Wings, has signed on as coach of the Stittsville Royals after being let go by the Perth team following its purchase by a Perth businessman. Mr. Fraser, who lives in Carleton Place and has a business in Stittsville, is looking forward to coaching the Royals, even suggesting that he hopes many of the Perth Blue Wings players follow him to his new team. Mr. Fraser was coach and general manager for the Perth Blue Wings for two seasons, recording a second place finish in the 20112012 season and then achieving a second place finish in the Valley Division championship this past season. Before joining the Perth Blue Wings, he coached minor hockey

in Carleton Place after playing for the Kemptville 73â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s junior team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want me to do in Stittsville what I did in Perth,â&#x20AC;? Mr. Fraser says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just take care of the hockey stuff â&#x20AC;&#x201C; community involvement, marketing. There is no doubt the success will be there off the ice as well as on the ice.â&#x20AC;? Besides hiring Mr. Fraser, the Stittsville Royals have also signed former Perth assistant coaches Brodie Hurris, Gio Falsetti and Chuck Mills who handled the goalies. Mr. Fraser was let go by the Perth Blue Wings after Michael McLean, a Perth businessman and former owner of the Smiths Falls Jr. A Bears, purchased the team and announced himself as the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new coach and general manager. When Mr. Fraser was let go, the Stittsville Royals immediately offered him the opportunity to coach the Royals. He wanted to continue coaching, so he accepted the Royals offer. The Stittsville Royals and the Perth Blue Wings both play in the Valley Division of the Metro-Valley Conference of the EOJHL.

Goulbourn’s Chain of Office Special to the News

EMC news - The ceremonial mayoral Chain of Office from the former township of Goulbourn was one of five such mayoral Chains of Office on display at the office of city of Ottawa mayor Jim Watson during last weekend’s Doors Open Ottawa event. It was part of a new city of Ottawa Archives exhibit featuring these mayoral Chains of Office from the former municipalities that now make up the city of Ottawa. The Chains of Office, which form part of this display, are from the former municipalities of not only Goulbourn but also Nepean,

Osgoode, Rideau and Vanier. There is also a Chain of Office from the former City of Gloucester but it is not part of this display because it is currently on loan from the city of Ottawa Archives to the Gloucester Historical Society. Not all of the former municipalities that are now part of the city of Ottawa had a mayoral chain of Office. Chains of Office are a ceremonial symbol of the Office of Mayor. Although not part of this display, mayor Watson does have and wear on select occasions the city of Ottawa’s Chain of Office which was first worn by mayor Eugene Martineau in 1872. Mayor Watson also uses on

occasion the Mayor’s Robe of Office which was first worn by mayor Charlotte Whitton in the 1950’s. This display of mayoral Chains of Office was on display throughout last weekend’s Doors Open Ottawa event in the city hall corridor outside the mayor’s office. Later this month, the display will move to the atrium outside Andrew Haydon Hall at city hall. Doors Open Ottawa is a special annual weekend event in which buildings not normally accessible to the public are open for free public tours. This year Doors Open Ottawa included 124 different buildings in the city of Ottawa including the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville.

Dart awards at Stittsville Royal Canadian Legion

Recently, I had the pleasure of accompanying several Council colleagues along with Mayor Jim Watson and Vice-président du comité exécutif de la Ville de Gatineau Luc Montreuil to jointly unveil Ottawa 2017 logo at the Ottawa International Airport. The logo represents an initiative to drive economic activity to the capital region in the years leading up to Canada’s 150th birthday. The City of Ottawa’s task force for Ottawa 2017 is co-chaired by City Councillors Katherine Hobbs and Rainer Bloess, and members include the City of Ottawa’s Economic Development and Innovation Department and Events Central, Ottawa Festivals, Ottawa Tourism, Acart Communications, Ottawa Convention Centre, Regroupement des gens d’affaires de la Capitale nationale (RGA), Ottawa-Gatineau Hotel Association, Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group, Algonquin College, National Capital Commission, and the Canadian Restaurant and Food Services Association. The 2017 logo was developed through partners’ collaboration and consultation and is made up of 13 different triangles of varying colours representing the 13 provinces and territories that make up Canada. Ottawa and Gatineau each have their own city’s version of the logo, but a general version will be made available to businesses and supporters of the initiative. Ottawa has seen an increased interest as a destination for hosting major events through the “bid more, win more, host more” strategy. In the past year, the city has welcomed the 2012 National Hockey League All-Star game, the 2012 JUNO Awards, the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Women’s Championships, and will be hosting more major events in the coming years, like the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

IN MEMORY OF JAMES CATHCART A stained glass window located at the St.Thomas Anglican Church at 1619 Stittsville Main Street, was dedicated to James Cathcart. James’ father Carleton Cathcart was born in County Donegal Ireland and emigrated with his parents in 1822. Carleton Cathcart contributed greatly to the development of the Goulbourn Township. He occupied the office of Township Clerk in Goulbourn for many years starting in 1850 when the first town hall was built on his property on Concession 7, Lot 17.

His son James, born in 1830, built a log house on the Cathcart properties, which has been on showcase since the 1970’s as a prime example of pioneer construction at the Museum of Civilization, as the entrance to the “Every Man’s Heritage” exhibit! James and his wife Anne had two daughters and one son, Wilford Egerton, who operated the family farm until 1947 after James died in 1907. Wilford’s son Percy then ran the farm until 1973. *Excerpts of this story taken from “Goulbourn Stained Glass”, by the Goulbourn Township Historical Society As your Councillor, I always welcome your keen input and ideas on how we can sustain and improve Stittsville.

EMC news - Cancer doesn’t sleep and neither do we. This is the answer Rosemary Leu gives when asked why the annual Relay for Life event is held overnight. “My favourite explanation when people ask ‘Why is Relay overnight?’ the response is that cancer doesn’t sleep and neither do we,” said Leu, the volunteer event chair for the Relay for Life Ottawa West event for the Canadian Cancer Society. The relay will take place this Friday, June 7 at Walter Baker Park in Kanata from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. “We might get tired doing our relay, we fight fatigue, but when you look at what those people are fighting every day, what we’re doing over 12 hours is not so bad.” Teams walk a track, lined with luminaries – candles placed in special bags that bear the names of cancer survivors and loved ones who lost their battle with cancer. A luminary ceremony is held at 10 p.m. “The inspiration and the emotion that you feel from that ceremony is something that stays with you,” said Leu. “It touched me in a very deep way. I think it’s definitely something people can come out and enjoy.” The Relay for Life committee is looking for more teams to join the event. Last year, the west Ottawa event had 44 teams registered and

Leu said she “absolutely” wants to beat that number this year. As of mid-May, 37 teams were registered. Last year, $145,000 was raised from the Ottawa west relay, while $1.2 million was raised in total from the Ottawa west, east, south and centre Relays for Life. The event is the largest charitable fundraiser for cancer research in Canada, said Leu. Last year, $46 million was raised across the country. Of that, almost $15 million was given to research in Ottawa. During the 12-hour event there are fun activities throughout the night, such as team spirit and themed laps. A survivors’ victory lap kicks off the beginning of the relay at 6:40 p.m., followed by a parade of the teams. “The survivors’ victory lap is another one where we celebrate the fight that they’ve gone through, are going through, and winning that battle,” said Leu. “It’s a fantastic celebration of life. “We remember loved ones lost … but we celebrate those that are fighting and surviving every day.” She added a number of community businesses have donated time and volunteered resources to the event.

EMC news - Lemonade Standemonium is happening in Stittsville. Thanks to 11 year old Hayden Walker and his nine year old sister Indigo, there’s going to be at least one lemonade stand in Stittsville generating funds for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation’s Great Canadian Lemonade Standemonium fundraising campaign. This is a campaign focused on Saturday, June 22, when family lemonade stands across the area will be raising funds to support cancer research and programs for children fighting cancer in the area. Hayden and Indigo Walker got a jump on things by setting up their lemonade stand “Sweet B’s” at the outdoor frame sale which was held by their parents, Amy and Jim Walker, at their Walkerworks Picture Framing shop at the corner of Beverly Street and Stittsville Main Street last Saturday. The lemonade stand will be set up on Saturday, June 22 for sure but it will also be set up on nice weather days between now and then. “We chose to name it Sweet B’s after the street were are on: Beverly,” says Hayden, a grade five student at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School in Stittsville, in explaining why the lemonade booth is called “Sweet B’s.” Amy Walker, mother of Hayden and Indigo, who is in grade four at A. Lorne Cassidy Elementary School, suggested that the children sell lemonade at the Beverly Street/Stittsville Main Street corner and Hayden and Indigo enthusiastically embraced the idea. “Then I read in the paper that the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation has just started a campaign to have lemonade stands running across the city, with proceeds going to children’s cancer programs and research.”

She asked her children if they wanted to sign up for this Great Canadian Lemonade Standemonium and the answer was a resounding yes. While Saturday, June 22 is the big day for the Great Canadian Lemonade Standemonium, the two Walker youngsters will have their lemonade stand set up on nice weather days leading up to June 22. Donations can also be made to their efforts by visiting their virtual lemonade stand. More information about the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation’s Great Canadian Lemonade Standemonium can be found on the Foundation’s website at ottawacancer.ca . Walkerworks Picture Framing were offering a wide variety of frames at its Outdoor Frame Sale last Saturday. There were frames of all sizes, shapes and colours including some pre-loved frames, some slightly scratched ones and some dented frames. Walkerworks Picture Framing is run by the husband and wife team of Jim and Amy Walker. Previously located on Stittsville Main Street beside the Stittsville Legion Hall, Walkersworks has been located at the corner of Beverly Street and Stittsville Main Street since July 2009 when the Walkers purchased the property which includes a commercial building as well as a home. “We love living and working in Stittsville,” says Amy. Our kids walk to school and the entire family frequently bikes or walks to the various other shops in the area for our purchases.” “We are so lucky to be part of a vibrant community where so much is highly accessible to walkers and bikers alike,” Amy says. Those wishing to participate in the Great Canadian Lemonade Standemonium on Saturday, June 22 and thus help support the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation can register online at www.ottawacancer.ca .

Richmond Legion turns 40 Special to the News

EMC news - The Richmond Legion is now 40. It was back in 1973 that the Richmond Branch 625 of the Royal Canadian Legion was founded. The branch’s 40th anniversary was celebrated at its annual charter night dinner at the Legion Hall on Ottawa Street last Saturday evening. Special guests at this 40th anniversary and charter night dinner included Ken Sorrenti, vice-president of Ontario Command of the Royal Canadian Legion; Shirley Munro, Deputy Zone Commander of Zone G-5 who presented a certificate of merit to the Richmond Legion to mark the occasion of the branch’s 40th anniversary; and city of Ottawa Rideau-Goulbourn ward councillor Scott Moffatt who brought municipal greetings and congratulations to the event. The Richmond Legion also received a certificate and accompanying letter of congratulations from Carleton-Mississippi Mills MP Gordon O’Connor who is a retired brigadier general and a former Minister of National Defence. Shirley Beardsell presented the Richmond Legion Branch with a cheque for $1,000 from the Ladies Auxiliary while Joan Frost, on behalf of Club 55, presented the Branch with a donation of $1,500. Those at the event heard letters of congratulations which were sent to the Branch for the occasion by several who played a role in the growth of the Richmond Legion. Charter member Frank Jefferies, who could not attend due to personal health reasons, sent an email offering his best wishes on the branch’s 40th anniversary. “I often think of the good times I had there, especially being involved

in the creation of the Branch,” he wrote. Another letter came from longtime member and former Richmond Legion president Dennis Paproski who was a member of the Richmond Legion for 25 years before moving to Kingston. “Branch No. 625 and the Legion more generally have contributed to the well-being of not only area veterans but also of the community at large,” Mr. Paproski wrote in his letter of congratulations to the Branch. Richmond Legion past president Brian Beyer send a letter of congratulations to all past and president members of the Branch on the occasion of the Branch’s 40th anniversary. He praised the effort, dedication and team spirit of the Richmonde Legion and the way that all members “pull together” for the good of the Legion. Another Richmond Legion past president, Bob Johnson, on behalf of himself and his wife Becky, send along good wishes to the Branch on this 40th anniversary occasion. “I can tell you that your Legion Branch is a rare and valued addition to the Zone and especially the village of Richmond,” he wrote while wishing the Branch many more years of comradeship and success. Members of the head table for this 40th anniversary and charter night dinner included Ladies Auxiliary president Shirley Beardsell and Tom Beardsell; Ken Sorrenti, vice-president of Ontario Command; Branch president Brian Goss and Brenda Goss. Those at the head table were piped to their places by the Richmond Legion bagpiper Eric Booth. Pat Sullivan served as the MC for the event.

L.A. life membership presented Special to the News

EMC news - Hilda Moore, a charter member of the Ladies Auxiliary (L.A.) of the Richmond Legion, is now an L.A. life member. She was presented with a life membership at the Richmond Legion’s 40th anniversary and charter night dinner last Saturday. She was the first secretary of the branch’s L.A. and also holds a life membership in the branch, having served two terms as

Richmond Legion branch president. Hilda takes part in L.A. sports at both the local and Zone levels and over the years has helped the L.A. with its catering and its annual tea. The L.A. also presented certificates of appreciation to Eunice Lemyre and Jack Lemyre at the charter night dinner. Twenty year service pins were presented to Gwladys Reynolds and Elsie Estabrooks while Joyce Forbes received a ten year pin.

Richmond Legion member Keith Thurrott, a flag bearer for the cairn dedication ceremony at the Richmond Legion Hall in Richmond last Saturday, stands solemnly with his flag, framing the plaque dedicated to the memory of those from Richmond and district who served in World War One or World War Two which adorns one side of the cairn.

Cairn at Richmond Legion dedicated Special to the News

EMC news - A new cairn commemorating the military connections in Richmond’s history has been dedicated at the Richmond Branch 625 of the Royal Canadian Legion. The cairn was officially dedicated in a ceremony just before last Saturday’s 40th anniversary and charter night dinner at the Richmond Legion Hall. The new cairn stands in the grassed area at the front of the Richmond Legion Hall, in open view to those passing by on Ottawa Street. The Richmond Legion had been looking for a way to mark and celebrate the War of 1812. A number of possibilities including a howitzer, an armed personnel carrier or even a tank were considered but erecting a cairn seemed to be the most suitable, especially after a trip to the Connaught Ranges hosted by Major Justin Schmidt-Cleaver to view the monuments there. Each side of the new stone cairn features a plaque which tells some-

thing of the military background of the Richmond community. One side with its plaque is dedicated to the soldiers and their families who established the military settlement of Richmond in 1818. These soldiers had served in a number of regiments during the War of 1812 but it was primarily those of the 99th Regiment of Foot (re-numbered from the 100th Regiment) who comprised the bulk of the first settlers in the Richmond area. Another side of the cairn features a plaque dedicated to the men and women of Richmond and district who served in the First and Second World Wars. Another side of the cairn bears a plaque dedicated to the men and women of Richmond and area who served in United Nations (UN)or North American Treaty Organization (NATO) deployments around the world to further the cause of peace. This plaque also is a memorial to all those who have served in the Canadian Armed Forces over the years

past. Yet another side of the cairn features a plaque dedicated to all members of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 625 of Richmond – past, present and future members. The cairn was formally unveiled by Richmond Legion president Brian Goss, after which Gerry Gauthier of the Legion recited a prayer of dedication. Kshamina Ghelani played The Last Post and, following two minutes silence and The Lament played by bagpiper Eric Booth, also played Reveille. George Murphy of the Legion recited “The Act of Remembrance.” Ken Sorrenti, vice-president of Ontario Command of the Royal Canadian Legion, and Richmond Legion president Brian Goss both laid wreaths at the cairn as part of the dedication ceremony. Flag bearers for the ceremony were Legion members Peter MacArthur and Keith Thurrott. Oscar Clench escorted the flag bearers.

Two life memberships presented at Legion

Special to the News

Special to the News

EMC news - Two life memberships in the Royal Canadian Legion were presented at the Richmond Legion’s 40th anniversary and charter night dinner last Saturday, June 1. Both James Becking and Keith Thurrott were presented with this prestigious honour. James Becking, a member of the Richmond Legion for ten years, served as the chair of the branch’s poppy committee from June 2004 to May 2012. He has also served on the branch’s honours and awards committee for the past two years. Keith Thurrott has received a life membership for serving in several capacities over his 24 years of membership in the Royal Canadian legion. His most valuable contribution to the Richmond Legion branch has been his ability to organize the branch’s annual Remembrance Day parades, parades for the branch’s special commemorative services and the Legion’s involvement in parades in community events like the Richmond Fair parade. Mr. Thurrott has also held training sessions at the Zone level on Colour Party and Sergeant-of-Arms protocols. He received a Certificate of Merit from the branch in 1997 and has served in executive positions including that of vice-president. Other awards presented at this anniversary/charter night included certificates of merit for Tom Louks, Rev. Carla Van Delen and Hector and Mary Lamrock (who handle some catering functions at the Richmond Legion including this dinner). Long service pins were presented to Richard Bennett for 30 years as a Legion member; to Ivan Barron for 25 years as a member; to Brian Adams for 15 years as a member; and Jim Becking for ten years as a member. Heather Murphy was presented with a Branch Service Medal. This award recognizes significant volunteer and service work accomplished for a Legion branch outside of or prior to acceptance of a leadership position. Shirley Morris received a Seniors Bar while Jane Louks was awarded a Poppy Bar.

EMC news - The formation of the Richmond Branch 625 of the Royal Canadian Legion resulted from the efforts of Richmond and area veterans and Legion members at other branches who decided that a Legion branch should be established in Richmond. An advertisement was placed in the newspaper seeking out those interested in forming a Legion branch, with a number responding, although only two were members of existing Legions. Meetings were held in basements and in homes as a learning process took place about the aims and goals of the Royal Canadian Legion. Both the neighbouring Stittsville and Manotick branches assisted and the Richmond branch was formed in 1973 with 28 members. These charter members were Stan Banner, Robert Barkley, Roger Bourgeois, Honore Caron, Mary Christy, Stewart Christy, Roger Camphorn, Rita Crowe, Robert Crowe, Arthur Dickinson, John Dixie, Gordon Hotchkiss, who was the first president, Rick Jamieson, Frank Jefferies, Lillian Jefferies, John Lewis, William Moore, John Pickett, Albert Pulfer, Brent Robillard, Levi Robinson, John Rothwell, Roy Schmelzer, Richard Scoales, Shelly Spearman, Harry Thomas, Wayne Thomas and Shaw Wilson. The Richmond Legion, like all Legion branches, must not be just another community service club, but rather is an organization whose primary focus and responsibility is the care of veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces and their dependents. However, the Legion also is involved in community affairs and very much carries out a role of community advocacy and support. The Richmond Legion began weekly bingos and these remained an important and significant fundraising vehicle for the branch over the years. The early years saw the branch also raise funds through a Chooseathon, a fundraising event that saw participants walk or bike or otherwise travel between Richmond and Manotick. Early on in its life, the Richmond Legion became involved in an annual Christmas dinner for seniors, an event which remains a Yuletide highlight in the village to this day. The Richmond Legion also initiated a Meals on Wheels program in Richmond and area, delivering hot meals to shut-ins to ensure that they were getting proper and sufficient nourishment. The Legion provided this service for the community over the years until giving it up to the Western Ottawa Community Resource Centre. The Richmond Legion held fundraising garage sales in its early years as it began fundraising for the construction of a Legion Hall. In 1976, the Richmond Legion became the first Legion branch in Ontario to sell Nevada tickets, a fundraising endeavour that can now be found widely in Legion branches. In 1981, the Richmond Legion opened its new Legion Hall on Ottawa Street at the western end of Richmond. The land had been purchased at a very reasonable price, and thanks to fundraising efforts and to a lot of the work being done by Legion members them-

selves, the Hall became a reality in 1981 and has since been the home of the Richmond Legion Branch 625. North Gower artist Becky Marr-Johnson painted a giant, multiple scene mural on the west wall of the Legion Hall in the 1990s. The Legion Hall has become the home not only of the Richmond Legion but also of Club 55, the seniors arm of the Legion, and the Ladies’ Auxiliary. The Richmond Legion has never forgotten its true purpose, namely to serve veterans and their dependents. Legion Members annually take part in a poppy blitz in both Richmond and Munster. The branch held significant ceremonies to mark the 50th anniversary of D-Day and the 50th anniversary of the ending of the Second World War. It has also honoured war brides. The Richmond Legion was instrumental in the creation of Memorial Park at the corner of McBean Street and Perth Street in Richmond, and in the erection at the park of a cenotaph in honour of the war dead. The park is also the site of annual Remembrance Day services. It is also the site of special services to mark special events such as a ceremony to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the armistice for the cessation of the Korean conflict. The Richmond Legion also hosted in 1995 a major celebration in Richmond marking the 50th anniversary of V.E. Day, the end of World War Two in Europe. The Richmond Legion has also held a special event honouring War Brides. Richmond Legion member Tom Cowick provided the inspiration for the Richmond Legion’s project which involved erecting memorial plaques at the various local cemeteries, identifying the gravesites of war veterans. This was a major initiative by the Richmond Legion and each local cemetery in the Richmond and Munster areas now boasts a blue memorial plaque which identifies the war veterans buried there and their war involvement. The Richmond Legion annually provides a colour party, which heads up the Richmond Fair Parade. As well, it provides bursaries to help with post-secondary school expenses for deserving Richmond and area students. The Richmond Legion is the site of a busy agenda of regular events, such as euchre parties, a morning coffee club, fitness sessions and a dart league. There are regular barbecues held in the summertime, while annual events such as St. Patrick’s Day are often traditionally celebrated. Those who have served as president of the Richmond Branch 625 of the Royal Canadian Legion have included Norm Adams, John Andrew, Brian Beyer, Helen Cowick, Gordon Hotchkiss, John Harrison, Frank Jefferies, Lillian Jefferies, Jane Louks, Bob Loverock, Hilda Moore, George Murphy, Dennis Paproski, John Pickett, Bob Johnson, Maurice Lavoie and current president Brian Goss. Past presidents of the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Richmond Legion include Joan Adams, Shirley Beardsell, Barb Bennett, Mavis Lewis, Pat Loverock, Heather Murphy, Edna Monahan and Cheryl Neuman.

EMC news - “The shortest pencil is better than the longest memory.” This is a Chinese proverb that facilitator Ian Henderson noted on a couple of occasions to emphasize his contention that writing things down is one effective way to help a person remember things. And this was not the only saying that he used to emphasize a point in the “Improve Your Memory Fitness” workshop that he led at St. John’s Anglican Church hall in Richmond on Wednesday evening, May 29. “When I go slow, I go faster” is another phrase that he quoted in urging people to slow down in their pace of life, paying more attention to what’s going on. And he pulled this phrase not from someone famous or from a book of Chinese proverbs but from himself. It is what he calls an “Ianism” – his own wise words coming from 35 years of making presentations about memory. Mr. Henderson acknowledged that everyone is leading busy lives these days but he said that by rushing and not taking time to remember, a person is just setting himself or herself up for failure. He used the example of putting the garage door down when leaving home. Or unplugging a curling iron before leaving the house. In both cases, he urges slowing down for 30 seconds to make sure that the garage door has closed or that the curling iron is unplugged. This allows the memory to record what you are doing and eliminates those return

trips to the house to check on that garage door or that curling iron. Mr. Henderson, quoting Samuel Johnson, the 18th century English writer who is sometimes described as “the most distinguished man of letters in English history,” emphasized that memory really is the art of attention. “Memory is ‘The True Art of Attention’” is how Samuel Johnson stated it. Quite simply, in Mr. Henderson’s view, paying attention is one of the most important things that a person can do to improve memory. Another tip from Mr. Henderson is to be organized – that is, have a place for everything such as scissors and always put those things back in their place so you know where they are the next time that you go looking for them. He also told those in attendance at the workshop that attitude towards memory is key. “I know very few people who have a lousy memory,” Mr. Henderson said. “They have a lousy attitude.” He says that if people expect memory to be perfect throughout a day, they have unrealistic expectations because there is no such thing as a perfect memory. Everyone has memory lapses, he said. “One of the first steps necessary for memory improvement is to view your memory in a realistic way,” he wrote in his “Improving Your memory Fitness” document that he handed out to those at the workshop. “It’s unrealistic to expect to remember everything,” he emphasizes in the hand-out document.

JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

“Improve Your memory Fitness” workshop leader Ian Henderson, centre, is with two of those who attended the workshop in Richmond on Wednesday evening, May 29, Pierre Landry, left, of Stittsville and Marsha Deyell, right, of Richmond. So, when you forget a name or have one of those so-called “seniors moments,” you should realize that it’s normal to have an occasional memory lapse. Mr. Henderson explained that people more easily recall a face than remember the name of the person simply because of the fact that 85 percent of memory is recognitionbased, not recall-based. A face is recognition-based; a name is a recall task. That’s why names come slower than faces. He also explained that as a person ages, there is more information stored in the brain and so it takes longer to sift through it and find the relevant information needed for a memory moment. Mr. Henderson also dealt with

a number of “memory myths” and “memory truths.” Myths include such beliefs that there is a secret to a good memory, that some people are stuck with a bad memory, that a trained memory never forgets, that remembering too much can clutter up a mind, that people only use a percentage of their memory, and that memory gets worse with age. He does not believe any of these myths. But he does believe in certain “memory truths” such as no one will ever have a perfect memory and that memory is a skill that can be learned. He suggested that people should take a minute say, three times a day, to exercise the memory, providing it with stimulation. The purpose of this exercise is to train your memory to

give you things on demand within a limited time frame. So, you might try to write down things that are yellow or the names of Canadian Prime Ministers or list different varieties of cheese or make some such list. The idea is not to see how many things on the list that you can come up with in a minute but simply to force your memory to work. You may come up with two responses or twenty but the number is not important – what is important is that your memory is being stimulated. You are improving your memory fitness. Mr. Henderson says that the TV game show “Wheel of Fortune” is a great game for stimulating memory. He is not so keen on “Jeopardy,” claiming that it is too advanced in its questions for a regular person. Mr. Henderson’s handout also included a number of “memory tips” such as paying more attention to what you are doing; avoid multi-tasking whenever possible; be organized; put frequently used items in the same place each time that they are used as this will help in remembering where they are; make “to do” lists and keep them posted in a good spot; establish a “take away” spot near the door where you can put things that you have to take with you when you go out; make visual clues and leave them as a reminder in a popular spot like on the bathroom mirror or in your purse; and make up rhymes to help you remember things, in much the same way that most people remember forever rhymes like “Fourteen hundred and ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”

‘Critters and Cream’ event at Richmond Cooperative Nursery School this coming Sunday, June 9

Richmond Munster Minor Hockey Association is holding a registration night for the 2013-2014 season on Monday, June 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Dining Hall at the Richmond fairgrounds beside the Richmond Memorial Community Centre in Richmond.

The Richmond Cooperative Nursery School always holds an annual event to thank the Richmond community for its support of the Nursery School. Funds raised at the recent Mom2Mom Sale held by the Nursery School are used to pay for this community event. This year’s event takes on a particular significance because right now, the Richmond Cooperative Nursery School is facing low registration numbers for the fall. This means that the Richmond Cooperative Nursery School may lose one of its two longserving teachers. So there is a need to boost enrolment for the fall. This community event lends itself as a perfect opportunity for families who may be thinking of a Nursery School experience for their child to drop by, have an ice cream, view a reptile or two (at least the kids will love this), tour the school’s facilities and chat with some existing Nursery School families about their view of the Nursery School and its benefits.

EMC news - Reptiles and ice cream – an unusual combination, to be sure, but when it’s all free and open to everyone, it’s worth consideration. It’s all happening at the upcoming annual community event being hosted by the Richmond Cooperative Nursery School, tentatively entitled “Critters and Cream.” This coming Sunday, June 9 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. on the grounds of the Richmond Cooperative Nursery School at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on McBean Street in the village of Richmnd, Ray’s Reptiles will have an animal display where there will be hands-on viewing of various reptiles. That’s the “Critters” part of the title of the event. In addition, there will be free ice cream available to one and all, served up by the families of the Richmond Cooperative Nursery School. That’s the “’Cream” part of the event’s name. If it does rain, the event will simply move inside the church hall.

Jabulani Vineyard & Winery opening John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - It’s wine time at Jabulani Vineyard and Winery near Richmond. The vineyard and winery opens for the season this Saturday, June 8 at 11 a.m., complete with its tasting patio and on-site retail store. Tours are now being booked, starting as of Friday, June 14. Tours will happen on Fridays at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. and on Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Janet and Tom Moul of Jabulani Vineyard and Winery have not been idle during the off-season. Not only have they been bottling wine for the upcoming season but they hosted a recent pairing night at the Casa di Zia Mia Restaurant on McBean Street in Richmond at which appropriate wines were matched up with the dishes served. Last Friday Jabulani Vineyard and Winery was at Ottawa city hall participating in the first-ever Mayor’s Rural

Expo at which various rural businesses, including Jabulani, were able to showcase and publicize their products. Last Saturday Janet and Tom Moul hosted a contingent of friends for the annual preseason work party in the vineyard, complete with a scrumptious lunch break. This season Jabulani Vineyard and Winery will have a large sign showing the way to the Winery that will be located at the corner of Franktown Road and Munster Road. During its first two season, Jabulani has placed a small roadside sandwich board at this location but it was susceptible to being blown down by the wind. The new sign has a wide support base that will keep it upright in windy conditions. Jabulani Vineyard and Winery is also now selling three litre “double magnum” bottles of wine. These are proving popular for some special occasions. The weather in mid-May did not do any favours for

Ottawa Needs You!

Jabulani Vineyard and Winery. Low overnight temperatures, predicted to be 2 degrees celsius, ended up being lower, in the freezing range. Janet and Tom woke up to a vineyard covered in white frost. This frost killed off the initial grape-bearing buds. Now, though, there are some new buds emerging that should produce grapes this season. The vines do have other buds on them as well but these are on old wood that will just be foliage and will not result in grapes. Jabulani Vineyard and Winery is located on the north side of the Jock Trail between Munster Road and Dwyer Hill Road. It can be reached by taking Franktown Road west from Richmond and then turning south (left) on Munster Road. Jock Trail is the first cross-road where you turn right (west) and Jabulani Vineyard and Winery will be on the right, a short distance past the Jock River bridge on this road.

JOHN CURRY/METROLAND

Tom Moul, left, and Janet Moul, right, display some double magnum bottles of wine on a barrel as they stand with the new sign for their Jabulani Vineyard & Winery which will be situated at the corner of Franktown Road and Munster Road this year, directing visitors to their location on Jock Trail.

Student art show at Banting John Curry john.curry@metroland.com

EMC news - Crayons and Plasticine are usually associated with children’s play. But both can also be used in art as shown at the student art show at the Frederick Banting Alternate Program School in Stittsville on Thursday, May 30. Crayons were the source of a whole lineup of art pieces that were on display at the show. Crayons were glued along the top of the “canvas” and then the crayons were melted with a hair dryer, with their wax colours moving down over the canvas, forming unique patterns. As for the Plasticine, there were in the art show examples of student sculpture using what is usually considered a children’s play modeling clay even though it was initially created in 1897 as a non-drying clay for use by sculpture students. Well, at Frederick Banting, Plasticine is being used for its original purpose as students have used it to create sculptured miniature figures like a Penguin man and a devil figure. There was even a scene created using Plasticine, complete with a pedestrian bridge and the presence of a number of creature figures. But crayon and Plastcine art were not the only eye-catching items on display at the art show. There were 25 completed skateboards on display. What are skateboards doing in an art show? Well they were all made from scratch by students and all of them feature customized artwork done by the individual student maker. This was all done in a special project at the school which attracted the involvement of about 50 students.

The artwork on each skateboard was unique, ranging from palm trees to a Star Wars theme to one filled with signatures and titled “Frederick Banting Alternate Program.” And one of four display pillars set up in the school gym for this art show was covered with photographs showing students creating these skateboards – glueing the wood together, sanding the edges of the board and then painting and creating their artwork on the board. Three other display pillars showed off examples of student art, ranging from pencil and pen drawings to portraits such as one done by Tom Hanssen to paintings with a variety of topics – a deer, a tree, Cinderella and even eyeballs. A farm scene featuring a barn, silo and farm house by J. Perkins was among the works on display, as was a black and white work showing the planet Saturn hovering over a castlelike structure. Artwork was also on display across the front edge of the gym’s stage, displaying a variety of colours and subjects such as a mountain top and a cow. Art was also featured on a couple of easels set up in the show. One of these featured two pieces of art done by student Aili Thomsen, one of which was a mixed media creation and the other was an acrylic painting, both of which featured scenes created out of Aili’s imagination. One of the most intricate pieces of art in the show, although perhaps not attracting the most attention because of its size, was a little box which featured scenes painted on all of its sides as well as on its top. As student creator Ally Bavington said, it was a very time consuming piece of work because of the plethora of art on such a small total

And if this were not enough, the art show also again this year featured the display of a number of masks created by students. They included a clown mask, a devil mask and even a Guy Fawkes mask, a stylized depiction of Guy Fawkes that has come to represent protest and has become popular in the internet world.

Fun Day Sunday at United Church Special to the News

EMC news - The weather prevented setting up outdoor inflatable play structures but despite this setback, the Fun Day Sunday at Stittsville United Church last Sunday lived up to its name – fun. It all began with a 10 a.m. multi-generational workshop service on the theme of joy. There was joy among the children of the Sunday School as they all received certificates for the efforts over the past year. The Sunday School teachers were thanked and the church’s new music director Allison Houston was welcomed. She is taking over from the church’s longtime music director Doll Creelman.

Music rang out as the cast of the church’s 2012 production of Godspell sang “Your Are The Light of the World.” And there was lots more happening. A BBQ picnic inside and out. An art display by Amy Mesdag. Indoor inflatable play structures. Cotton candy. Helium balloons. Outdoor games with prizes for everyone. But the most fun was perhaps generated by the day’s highlight which was the presence of giant bubbles and water balloons. The Stittsville United Church is planning another Fun Day Sunday on Sunday, Sept. 8, to be held in conjunction with a fundraising walk in support of the Kidney Foundation. Plans include a live band performance as well.

Putting Families First Parents are fully aware of the expenses that come with raising a family. From basic necessities such as clothing and food, to education and recreational activities – it adds up fast. That is why our Government has consistently worked to support and deliver savings for Canadian families since we were first elected in 2006. We started by introducing the Universal Child Care Benefit, providing real choice in child care by giving parents $1,200 a year for each child under the age of six. We have kept taxes low, including cutting the lowest personal income tax rate to 15%, as well as cutting the GST from 7% to 5%. We have also delivered tax credits that are helping families save every year, such as the Family Caregiver Tax Credit, the Child Tax Credit, the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit and the Children’s Arts Tax Credit. The average family now saves $3,200 a year. Despite these savings, Canadians remain mindful of the fact that the price of many products they need to support their family are consistently priced higher in Canada compared to the exact same product sold in the United States. Our Government understands this concern, and we have taken action through our latest Budget, Economic Action Plan 2013, to help deliver lower prices for hard-working Canadian families. Hockey skates, skis and baby clothing are just a few of the goods that will now be a little more affordable. To do this, our Government has removed tariffs on imported baby clothing and sports equipment, resulting in significant savings for families. Other examples of products that are now tariff-free include: snowboards, golf clubs, snowshoes, toboggans and roller skates. We strongly encourage businesses to pass these savings – in full – to their customers. These results build on our Government’s strong record of providing real savings to Canadian families. In fact, since 2009, we have eliminated close to 1,900 tariffs, providing more than $525 million in tariff relief annually to Canadian businesses and consumers. Ultimately, Canadians are aware that our dollar has strengthened considerably compared to the U.S. dollar. It makes sense, therefore, that a strong dollar should be reflected in the prices Canadians pay when they purchase products for their families with their hard-earned money.

Romanc Fireplaces and BBQs Inc. When Michael Pilon is behind the barbecue, expect to be treated to a symphony of flavour. Owner of Romantic Fireplaces and BBQ’s Inc., Michael is passionate about quality. That’s why he is so excited to be showcasing the Black Olive pellet grill, the world’s first pellet Kamado grill at local Farm Boy stores. “It’s all about combining the highest quality food with best taste and flavour. There is no product like the Black Olive and no better way to showcase it than with Farm Boy foods.” “We all remember the day when we made ‘the perfect steak’ cooked on a Hibachi charcoal grill. Convenience has most of us using a gas grill which tends to leave food tasteless and a bit dried out.” That’s where the Black Olive makes all the difference. “Finally, using the latest technology, the world’s first electric wood pellet Kamado style grill has been produced in Canada. The Black Olive grill has made it easy to have that great taste and flavour with the

push of a button!” For centuries in Japan, the Kamado style cooker has been the source of great meals. “This style of cooking reduces shrinkage and retains the moisture in foods, producing succulent, juicy steak, poultry and meats infused with the flavour of perfect wood pellet blends – maple, apple, cherry and hickory.” Not only does the Black Olive give food the best taste, cooking with the revolutionary grill is easy too. “The Black Olive does it all – smoking, baking, roasting, grilling and searing. Imagine enjoying your favourite wheel of brie, giant Portobello mushrooms or even pizza grilled to perfection with the amazing taste of wood pellets. It’s the best grilling experience ever!” Beautifully designed, easy to control, delicious results, and built to last – the Black Olive is durable and tough, able to withstand the most extreme climates and retain its good looks. No need to replace rusted out burners, the Black Olive ceramic grill will endure the harshest of cooking environments.

 

  Enter in store for a chance to win a grill-tastic BBQ bash for 20 of your closest friends and family. Prizes include the Black Olive BBQ, plus all the fixings – fresh food, professional grillers and craft beer for 20. ƒ Black Olive Grill with accessories ƒ Farm Boy™ fresh food for 20 people ƒ Grilling services from Pistol Packin’ Piggies ƒ Craft beer from Muskoka Brewery

The Black Olive’s patented design and shape gives it the ability to quickly achieve temperatures in excess of 650°F or as low as 150°F, making it perfect for smoking, baking, roasting, grilling and so much more. Never need to worry about overcooking or scorching your food again. Economical and healthier for the environment, pellet fuel gives food a more natural taste than gas or even charcoal. The pellet cooker takes the mystery out of fuel levels by providing a visual indication of how much fuel is in the grill at all times. Easily filled from the side hopper, the Black Olive is ideal for extended smokes and slow roasts.

MARY COOK

Once given a chance, even Mother agreed dandelions had a place at our dinner table

Mary Cook’s Memories “Woman, we have been eatin’ those on this here farm for a hundred years,” Father said to Mother. I could see she wasn’t impressed. “They’re weeds, Albert,” Mother said. “Plain and simple weeds. I never heard of anyone eating weeds.” We were at the breakfast table and we five children were looking at Mother and Father as if we were watching a tennis match. I didn’t think Father was going to win this one. The subject under discussion was dandelions. They covered what we called a lawn. It was really just our front yard, but since we didn’t own a lawn mower when the grass got too high, one of the brothers tackled it with a scythe. It was hard to tell what was grass and what was dandelions. Now, it wasn’t unusual for Father to whip up a German meal. His German potato pancakes were usually made on a Sunday night. The potatoes were shredded, rinsed, squeezed dry, and then mixed with eggs and of course, chopped onions. We kept him busy at the Findlay Oval turning out his pancakes barely giving him time to eat them himself, we loved them so much. Of course, they were well lathered with butter and maple syrup too. Now it was dandelions. Well, I was with Mother on this one -- I had no desire to eat weeds that were pulled out of the front yard where goodness knows what animal had trampled all over

them. No siree. That Saturday morning Father ordered the boys to meet him in the yard with their jackknives. He was carrying a milk pail and got down on his knees right in the middle of the yard and showed the brothers how to dig up a dandelion, right down to and including the root. It didn’t take long to fill the milk pail. He hauled the pail over to the cement step at the pump and filled it with water. He sloshed the dandelions around with his arm in the pail up to his elbow, dumped the water out, and repeated the performance. Mother was standing at the kitchen door with her arms folded across her chest, as if defying Father to bring the weeds into the house. Well, that’s exactly what he intended on doing. He laid out a spanking clean tea towel on the bake table and shook what water he could off the dandelions and laid them out flat, cutting off the long roots. Then he folded the towel over the pile of weeds and patted it with his flattened hand. Father took down a big pot from the shelf over the stove and piled in the dandelions. He poured in a scant dipper of water, sprinkled in a handful of salt and slid the pot to the front of the Findlay Oval. Then he went over to his rocking chair, lit his pipe, crossed his legs and waited. The table had already been set for dinner. We always had dinner at noon hour -- supper was what we had at night, and Mother

had roast pork and potatoes in the oven. It looked very much like we had a choice: either eat the dandelions as a vegetable, or settle for sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. Father was certainly in charge of the big pot, already boiling gently on the stove. Mother was having nothing to do with it. He tested the contents with a fork and when they were done to his liking, he poured the dandelions into the sieve, pressed them down with the wood spoon, and plopped them into a big bowl. He took the wood spoon, dug it into the butter dish, almost emptying it, and swirled it into the dandelions. He set the bowl in the middle of the table and we all looked at it, no one daring to be the first one to dig in. Emerson, the most daring of the lot of us, took his fork and tested one boiled leaf. I never took my eyes off him. He rolled it around in his mouth, and reached out for the bowl, ladling a heaping pile on his plate. “Just as good as your potato pancakes,” he said. Well, it didn’t take long for the rest of us to take a small bite, which led to us piling the dandelions on our plates and even Mother, dared to taste a fork full. It didn’t take long for Mother to admit that the dandelions had a place on our dinner table. She did demand to oversee the washing of every last leaf, however. From that Saturday, like Father’s potato pancakes and fried sauerkraut, his boiled dandelions often found their way to our plates.

Outdoor stage show in Richmond on Saturday, June 22 Special to the News

EMC news - The Richmond fairgrounds is be the scene of an outdoor stage show on Saturday, June 22. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be free ongoing entertainment on an outdoor stage plus other attractions such as a classic car show, an arm wrestling demonstration, the presence of Star Wars Storm Troopers, a magic show and dance demonstrations, all held under the sponsorship of the Richmond Village Association (RVA) in conjunction with and support of the annual chicken barbecue held by the Richmond Volunteer Firefighters that same day at that same location. And what great entertainment there is going to be at this event which will run from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the fairgrounds, rain or shine! Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Tycoons, a group comprised of Kevin Eamon, Francis Thibodeau, Mike Kelly and Cory M. Coons, which has opened and performed with national touring acts like April Wine, Glass Tiger, Prairie Oyster and Kim Mitchell. Now that means that they are good

and you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want miss the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance in Richmond. The Tycoons play some high energy rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n roll music as well as sleek harmonies and contagious melodies fronted by vocalist Cory M. Coons who is making quite a name independently, releasing a new CD â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here And Nowâ&#x20AC;? in late 2012 as well as a new single â&#x20AC;&#x153;Roses Need The Rainâ&#x20AC;? last January. The Cory M. Coons Band will also be performing. Another group to perform at this Richmond event will be â&#x20AC;&#x153;Second Sightâ&#x20AC;? with members Lee Keeley, Don Cright, Jean Lamirande and Dan Lafleur. This group writes and performs a lot of original music, reflecting the stylings of classic rock as well as being influenced by various blues, rhythm and blues and jazz greats. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Richmond Ramblersâ&#x20AC;? consisting of Dale Cole, Glen Trebble, John Estabrooks, Steve Nauss, Elly Wedge, Kristin Grzegorek and Randall Armstrong will also be performing. This group is known for its entertaining

mix of classic country and Ottawa Valley bluegrass. And the alternative rock scene has not been forgotten. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The United Inmateâ&#x20AC;? will be performing, providing alternative rock music from such artists as Weezer, The Who, Kings of Leon and Neon Trees. The schedule for this stage entertainment is â&#x20AC;&#x153;The United Inmateâ&#x20AC;? at 1 p.m.; Cory M. Coons Band at 2 p.m.; Richmond Ramblers at 3 p.m.; Second Sight at 6:30 p.m.; and Tycoons at 8 p.m. And while this musical entertainment will be the big attraction for this Richmond stage show event on Saturday, June 22 at the Richmond fairgrounds, there will be lots more to see and do. The Classic Car Club will be on hand, with probably 30 classic vehicles on display. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also going to be a magic show and dance demonstrations will be taking place. The Capital City Garrison â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 501 Legion will be bringing a Star Wars atmosphere to the event,

with their laser swords and Storm Trooper costumes. This will create a science fiction/fantasy environment thanks to their professional-grade costumes and props. If you enjoy Stars Wars, you will want to be there. There will also be an arm wrestling demonstration. This is all being done by the Richmond Village Association (RVA) as a way of providing a day of entertainment suitable to those of all ages. And best of all, there will be free admission thanks to the support of the Richmond business community for RVA activities. The RVA, though, is still seeking community members who might wish to volunteer to help out on that day. This might include helping with the parking or working back stage or helping with security and other functions on the grounds. Anyone who might want to volunteer to help with this community event should email richmondevents@live.ca , providing name and contact information.

EMC news - Sunday, June 16 is Father’s Day this year, a time when tribute is paid to fathers and their role in families. Sunday, June 16 this year is also going to be War of 1812 Tribute time in Goulbourn, a time when there will be a day of special events commemorating the War of 1812 at the Goulbourn Museum. What a great and unique way to celebrate Father’s Day by attending this War of 1812 Tribute as a family! It will be a step back in time as there will be free horse and buggy rides, crafts and games, historical demonstrations, period re-enactors, an old-fashioned photo booth, a silent auction, a book fair, a barbeque and more, all at the Goulbourn Museum site at 2064 Huntley Road at Flewellyn Road at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville. It will all be happening on Sunday, June 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Goulbourn Museum at Stanley’s Corners just south of Stittsville. This year’s event will be building on last year’s inaugural War of 1812 commemoration event at the Goulbourn Museum which attracted 450 visitors. Helping make this year’s event possible has been an $8,000 grant to the Goulbourn Museum from the federal government’s 1812 Commemoration Fund to help with expenses related to the event.

p.m. and run through to about 8 p.m. Performances will take place on the half hour, meaning that performers will be able to present performance sets of 20 to 25 minutes in duration. It is expected that there will be about 11 spots open for performers at this “Out Back Stage.”

Interested performers should contact Theresa Qadri at 613-620-6245 or Sandy Durocher at 613-836-1912. The Canada Day celebrations in Stittsville, organized by the Stittsville Village Association, will take place on the front grounds of Sacred Heart Catholic High School at the corner
