RIB FEST

Milton’s annual Rib Fest was held July 14, 15 and 16 at the Milton Fair Grounds. There were numerous Craft Brewers and food trucks, with the hardest decision being which of the Ribbers to try first! The kids zone kept the little ones happy for hours, while the live music kept everyone entertained and wanting to dance. Tables and chairs were lined up so people could sit and enjoy all the delicious food. It was a perfect place to meet new friends.

Dear The Wine Ladies,

ASK

We have guests visiting from London this summer and we were thinking about doing a one-day bicycle tour in Niagara-on-the-Lake. We’d love to show off a few of our wineries. Just wondering if you’ve done any of these tours and might have some thoughts to share on your experience. - Alyssa

THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Alyssa,

As promised, here is part 2 of the details of our one-day bicycle tour through Grape Escape Wine Tours, who was kind enough to give us a personalized guided “ride”. First stop…

INNISKILLIN WINES INC. A fabulous choice winery to visit, as one of the pioneers in the Canadian wine industry, founded in 1975 by Karl Kaiser and Donald Ziraldo, Inniskillin is largely credited with putting Canadian wines on the world wide wine map. An award that proved to be a turning point not only for Inniskillin, but also the Canadian wine industry. It was 1991 and in this competition, Inniskillin’s 1989 Vidal icewine won the Gold Medal at the ultra prestigious Grand Prix d’Honneur Awards at Vinexpo in Bordeaux France. Inniskillin also produces award winning table wines and is a must see, particularly for your out of town visitors! Our second stop… in contrast to Inniskillin Wines, Pondview Estate Winery

PONDVIEW ESTATE WINERY Although Pondview Estate Winery opened its doors in 2010… that is not to say that this family owned winery is not steeped in old world traditions, going back three generations of grape growers with family roots in Sicily. Owned by 3rd generation grape grower Lou Puglisi, who was awarded the prestigious Grape King Award in 2008, Lou and his wife/co-owner Adriana, celebrate old world traditions and make you feel at home, while enjoying their fine wines made with their own grapes, often paired with artisan cheeses. We enjoyed a selection of local cheeses, one of which was paired with Pondview’s Harmony Red.

10

• COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA

On our final stop, we got to go to what is trending and something we do! Not only trending, but good for you and our environment!

FROGPOND FARM ORGANIC WINERY It was a true pleasure to be greeted here at Ontario’s first organic winery, by the very hospitable and passionate owner and winemaker Jens, as well as the sheep, the bull frogs, chickens and hens, and of course the guinea fowl, all of which play an important role on this organic farm and organic winery. The animals and the various plants help create a balanced ecosystem, creating harmony in nature, which Jens believes is “the prerequisite for a truly authentic wine”. This is a charming, small winery that produces a range of wines including a Cabernet Merlot, which we enjoyed at the picnic table with our local cheese and yummy crackers! So we are in the final stretch now of our wine tour on wheels, feeling very relaxed, satisfied and well oxygenated with the clean, pure air and beautiful surroundings we have experienced over the last couple of hours. Our cups runneth over and our baskets do too, with purchases we have made along the way, truth be told Jacquie has taken care of our precious parcels with delivery back to Kurtz’s. Full circle, we are back now at Kurtz’s Orchard Farm and Marketplace… but wait, one final stop, a quick visit into the marketplace where alas… we find all is local, even the stupendous, handmade, Turkish delight! Eureka! Life just doesn’t get any better! We sincerely hope you share with your visitors a little of what we have to offer here in our Niagara-on-the-Lake wine country. We promise it will be a delightful and a delicious day! thewineladies.com • tourniagarawineries.com

Smartphone/Point and Shoot/Digital SLR. 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.

IF YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PREPARE, BE READY TO THINK ABOUT: • Should the camera be held horizontally (landscape) or vertically (portrait)?

OUT-OF-FOCUS PHOTOS ARE OFTEN AVOIDABLE WITH BE STEADY TECHNIQUES: • Hold the camera with both hands. • Hold the camera as close to your body as possible, typically with your elbows against your chest. • Press down smoothly and do not jab at the shutter release button. • Consider using a tree, a pole or a wall to further steady yourself and the camera. • Action photos will often be out-of-focus unless you adjust your camera for a faster shutter speed. Your camera may have a "sports" setting that can be used to greatly increase your chance of capturing sharp action photos. If the camera allows for this adjustment, a speed of 1/500 second should be used as a minimum. • Action adjustments aren’t just for professional athletes. Even children playing, running or dancing will likely be in better focus. • A faster shutter speed will also help those with shaky hands.

• Will there be enough lighting, or will flash be needed? • Where can I safely stand to get the best picture?

PROFILE

At the Milton Farmers’ Market

WITH CINDY LUNAU WHO ARE YOU?

WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOU AND WHY?

NAME: Cynthia Lunau

People who care, both in their professions and as volunteers, and work hard to make our community and our world a better place. This community is blessed with an abundance of these folks.

BIRTHPLACE: Duluth, Minnesota, USA NICKNAME: Cindy WHERE DO YOU LIVE: Milton Nassagaweya CAREER: Milton Town Councillor & Small Business owner cindylunau.ca

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY AND PETS: Two granddaughters, three daughters and their partners.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF THE WHOLE COMMUNITY WERE LISTENING? I would quote the Anthropologist Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

12

• COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA

WHAT WOULD YOU DEEM YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT? Surviving. From a Council perspective: 1) In my first term I worked with the group that negotiated for a share of the OLG Slots revenue for Milton to date resulting in over $100 million for Town projects in the last 15 years. 2) Finally! The expansion of the Milton District Hospital. One of my passionate projects for more than a decade. From a personal perspective: My wonderful family & incredible granddaughters. I love being known as Gramma Cindy in the community. (One very bright youngster said I should be called ‘Young Gramma Cindy.”)


WHAT ARE SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT YOU? 1. I have a hidden athletic prowess! In my younger days, I was part of the Softball Team that won the Kitchener City Championship. Long ago I received the Nassagaweya Tennis Club Award for most improved player (it’s been downhill ever since!). I also received an award for hardest hockey shot. Who knew! 2. My first real job was writing TV Commercials. Literally the first commercials for PAM cooking spray and Formula 409 household cleaner, circa 1966.

IF YOU COULD POSSESS ONE SUPER-HUMAN POWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY? The power to open peoples’ minds. “The mind is like a parachute. It only works when it’s open.” We should always be open for a healthy discussion. I might also wish to give everyone a kind heart. Kind hearts working together can solve most disputes.

3. In the 1990s I represented a computer software company, travelling to trade shows and even appeared on CTV’s W5. 4. I preserved over 450 jars of Ontario produce last year – jams, jellies, and pickles that won prizes at both Acton and Milton Fall Fairs. Many of these are included in Prize Baskets for local fund raisers and for sale in the Ebenezer Church Precious Preserves Cupboard. 5. On Farmers’ Market Saturdays, I can be seen distributing bushel baskets to vendors who share their market goodies with local charities and food banks. I am the Market Gleaner.

Breakfast with Santa with granddaughters, Jessica and Damara

WHAT DOES THE WORD COMMUNITY MEAN TO YOU? Extended – very extended – family. Sometimes messy.

WHAT IS ONE THING THAT VERY FEW PEOPLE WOULD KNOW ABOUT YOU? It always gets folks attention when I (and very often the Mayor) introduce myself as a ‘stripper.’ For over 35 years, I have refinished & finished furniture – restored family treasures and finished projects by other woodworkers.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME AND WHY? I really don’t have one. But I particularly like the musical CATS. With Nancy’s help, adding a small touch to the Mural for the lobby of Milton District Hospital.

AWARDS: 1992: The Governor General of Canada’s 125 Anniversary Medal for Volunteer Service 2002: Angel of the Year Award by the Darling Home for Kids 2003: Champion of Literacy Award by Halton Literacy North 2013: Provincial Youth Friendly Award with Milton Youth Advisory Committee 2017: Premier’s Awards for Accepting Schools, as part of the Brookville School team

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH? Almost anything & everything. Sometimes inappropriately. I’m often told I laugh in my sleep.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE VACATION SPOT? Home. I ignore my phone & computer and have a Staycation. It’s also wonderful to share our wonderful rural attractions with tourists from far & near.

WHAT BRINGS YOU THE GREATEST JOY OR SATISFACTION? Helping people.

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN? My Grandmother said, “Follow your Heart,” and I came to Canada in 1967. Good Friends said, “Run for Council,” and I ran in 1997. My nomination fee was covered by a $100 loan. As a single mom, it just wasn’t in my budget. With community volunteers, Mike and Gary, at Campbellville’s Gazebo Park COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA •

PET ADOPTION

ARNOLD

Arnold first came to us with his brother who he was bonded to. They were happily adopted together, but months later, Arnold’s brother passed away suddenly. Arnold was returned to us. Except this time, he didn’t have his dear brother by his side. Despite all of this, Arnold is still as silly as ever and adores playing with other active cats. Every night, he settles into bed with his foster mom, but he loves his nightly pats before falling asleep. He is still a tiny bit skittish from his young days as a rescue kitten, but is growing more confident every day! He would do best in a home without young children and with active cats. If you think your home is just right for Arnold, please email info@teamcatrescue.ca today!

DELICIOUS DISH RECIPE

MEXICAN

STREET CORN

ELOTES

n my opinion, this is the best way to serve corn... period! I buy the crema and Cotija cheese at my local Mexican grocery store, Perola Supermarket in Kensington Market, but in a pinch you can substitute these ingredients. Serves: 5-10

INGREDIENTS • 5 corn on the cob, husked and cleaned. Cut into 2-3 pieces, or leave whole

DIRECTIONS STEP 0 1 If you are leaving the corn whole, I like to skewer the end of each piece

• 1 lime, cut in half

of corn with a bamboo or metal skewer, making sure it does not go all

• 1/2 cup Mexican crema or crème fraiche

the way through and there is a long end to grab onto. It makes it easier

• 150g of Cotija cheese or feta, finely crumbled*

to hold when it is hot. You can also leave un-skewered.

• A shake of Tajin seasoning, Mexican seasoning powder • 1/2 lime, cut into small pieces

STEP 0 2 Bring a large pot of water to boil, put the corn pieces in it (with the skewers), cover the pot and remove from the heat, let poach for 5 minutes or leave

* Crumble the cheese when it is very cold (it is easier to crumble using a fork). ** You can also grill the corn for a delicious smoky flavor.

in the water to keep warm.**

STEP 0 3 Drain the corn, remove from the water onto a paper towel and blot the water off the corn with the paper towel.

RCMP MUSICAL RIDE

ACROSS CANADA The Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Musical Ride has always been an amazing heritage tradition of the RCMP. The performance consisted of 32 riders reining their horses with proficient control and perfect coordination, while choreographed to music. Horses and riders were selected and arranged for the performances based on their traits and ability to fit in their roles. There was only one leading rider, also known as the “one of one.” “Leading the ride is always an honour, especially this year, knowing we are celebrating the anniversary of our country,” said Cpl. Genevieve Neily, who has been chosen for the “one of one” position with her horse Comet, “I am excited and nervous. I want to put on the best shows we can for Canada.” The Musical Ride performs across more than 50 local communities in Canada and helps to fundraise thousands of dollars for various charities.
