WHAT LOVELY ROSES
BY MARY WOOTTON, BLBC PUBLICITY CHAIR / PHOTOGRAPHY BY EVAN BINGLEY
perk of Canada Day at the Burlington Lawn Bowling Club was playing on great greenery, surrounded by beautiful gardens. Mary Ann Cook, the club’s landscaping chair recently won three 1st place prizes and one 3rd prize in the Horticulture Society’s competition for her roses. Two of those prizes were for roses planted in our Club gardens. Another club member won a draw at the RBG for a free new edition rose “The Canadian Shield.” She donated it to the club and Mary Ann found it a new home across the greens, in front of the club house and in direct view of members in our photo-op. For more information on the Burlington Lawn Bowling Club go to www.burlingtonlbc.org.

NO MATTER WHAT DEVICE YOU USE TO TAKE PHOTOS, WHAT LOOKS FINE ON THE DEVICE MAY LEAVE YOU DISAPPOINTED WHEN YOU WANT TO MAKE THAT SPECIAL IMAGE INTO AN ENLARGEMENT, A POSTER OR A SCREEN-SAVER. EACH MONTH, THIS COLUMN WILL AIM TO PROVIDE UNDERSTANDABLE, PRACTICAL, LARGELY NON-TECHNICAL ADVICE TO HELP YOU MAKE BETTER PHOTOS.
THE RAIN rainy day should not be a reason to leave your camera behind. First, protect the camera. Take photographs from a sheltered location, have someone hold an umbrella, or bring out the camera for only the time needed to shoot. Fortunately, most smartphones can resist some moisture. For expensive cameras, rain covers can be improvised or purchased. Second, look for my four “C”s to bring interest to rainy weather photography: Colour such as umbrellas (1), raincoats (2); Close-ups (3); Consequences such as puddles (4), raindrops (5); Courage for the subjects in the rain (6).

There were plenty of refreshments, a bucking longhorn ride, face painting and so much more. It was quite a celebration!

EYE FOCUS GRAND OPENING BY LESLIE STYLES
he grand opening of Dr. Karen Lee’s Eye Focus Optometry and Optical, took place on July 6th in Aldershot. A ribbon cutting ceremony followed a few words from Mayor Rick Goldring and Ward 1 Councillor Rick Craven, both expressing a warm welcome and best wishes for Dr. Lee’s success. Dr. Lee proudly recalled her participation in ten eye care missions since 2009, providing vision care to countries such as India, Thailand, China and Ecuador. Every patient received a check-up, glasses and sunglasses. Dr. Lee has witnessed how powerful one pair of glasses are to be able to transform someone’s life. Before returning to Canada, Dr. Lee practiced in Chicago, providing eye health and vision exams for the Chicago Public School system. She is passionate about helping children, primarily by treating visually related learning problems. Best of luck to Dr. Lee in her new location at 457 Plains Road East. 14

SCHOOL LIFE MILTON DISTRICT HIGH SCHOOL
We have enjoyed a spectacular finish to a wonderful year here at MD, culminating in our 98th commencement ceremony at the Milton Velodrome, on June 28th. Leading up to that evening were many milestones to note and a bright pathway ahead. From STEM, to arts to even visiting rock stars, MD has a lot to share! The Eddie goes to…The Eddie Awards honour young filmmakers. Halton’s very own Film Festival aims to showcase the many talented students across our board. Our students won awards in the categories of best screenplay, PSA, comedy, suspense and action. Even better, the entertaining emcees for the evening were none other than Jessika Johnson and Zain Syed, who provided for an outstanding evening of laughter. Moving from arts to science, 15 students sat in the SIN physics contest, sponsored by the University of Waterloo this spring. Overall, the MD school average exceeded both the national and international averages of other schools. Jeans Patel and Zia Baig placed within the top 200 participants worldwide! And then THIS happened!
Shortly before their sold-out show in Hamilton, two members from Arkells (yes, THOSE Arkells!) came to work with the MDHS senior band. Tim Oxford (the drummer) performed their new song People’s Champ, accompanied by lead singer Max Kerman. At the end of the session, Max and Tim awarded Mr. Carson-Foster with a People’s Champ medal and a certificate for the incredible magic he does with this school’s music department. The MD community enjoyed an open special dinner invitation from the Iftar Committee to celebrate Ramadan. The delicious event took place right here in our own newly renovated cafeteria. All of the food was donated by local restaurants and some generous parents of our students. At the end of the year, we found ourselves collectively contemplating what makes MD so magical. Ultimately, it is our vision and our values that inspire everything we do. Our mission is to always provide an exemplary learning experience for everyone. This means aiming to optimize every class, every conversation, every moment of our practice to be our best. Our values are deeply rooted in purposefully cultivating a sense of belonging and safety that is key to every person’s success. Then we aim to do what is right and aim even higher. Looking ahead to the 2018/2019 year, our focus on well-being will be further enhanced by cultivating a growth mindset for everyone in our community to support our students in realizing their dreams!
SOUND OF MUSIC FESTIVAL
BY LESLIE STYLES
Burlingtonâ€™s downtown area vibrated with music, at the Sound of Music Festival from June 9th to 17th. The annual street festival, carnival rides, vendors, grand festival parade and free concerts drew crowds from Burlington and far beyond. The Brant Street restaurants built little patio areas, so people could dine al fresco and not miss a thing. This waterfront festival continues to grow and impress year after year, bringing people together and creating lasting memories. 08 01 Stacy Kay 02 Mount Farewell 03 Dennis Ellsworth Band performing at city hall 04 Watching the show 05 Logan & Armin 06 Enjoying the beautiful day 07 Dominic & Denise with Isabella & Lucca 08 Maggie, Ruth, John & Craig
THE BASICS OF THE GOLF
SWING olf swing instructions start with finding the right professional location and instructor who can guide you in achieving the basic swing techniques, to gauging the distance of each club in your golf bag. Understanding the golf swing should give anybody a firm foundation to learn and help them get started in the game.
There are three main segments to a golf swing: the back-swing, the downswing and finally the impact and follow through. Dividing the golf swing into segments, helps the golfer focus on one segment at a time, making it easier for them to remember what they learned and also to be able to work on improving their game systematically. There is another big advantage to this approach. The ability to be able to draw one’s attention to the many different parts of the body and the many muscles involved in a proper swing technique. Golfers need to focus on the dynamics of the golf swing rather than the outcome. It’s more important to concentrate on the process, rather than getting distracted by the immediate results. “In an outdoor setting, students often become focused on what the ball is doing; doubt can enter their minds and compromise their commitment to the process. Any teacher or player will tell you; make a fundamentally good swing and the ball will take care of itself.”
Sophisticated ball flight data and video swing analysis software such as Trackman Performance Software (TPS) greatly increase the students’ comprehension, allowing them to adapt to their new positions faster than ever. Seeing is believing. Professional golfers have to practice year-round in order to retain their skills. The same applies to average golfers as well. A year-round practice/training schedule helps to avoid slumps and muscle memory loss. Remember your swing and body are constantly changing, and you should see your instructor on a regular basis. Having a second set of eyes from a trained professional will keep that swing in check.
