BLACKSTOCK by Joyce Kelly The 29th annual Talent Auction (how time flies) on Friday evening was most successful, both as a fun event and also a fundraiser. A large crowd enjoyed the banter of the auctioneers Brian VanCamp and Arnott Wotten as they did their chants. Jessie Gunter and Shirley Tuner along with Shirley’s two daughters, Lauri and Ron Minshell and Jan and Jim Byers have returned home from a most interesting holiday in Arizona. Jamie Gray and Jade Vincent of Pickering were married last week in a lovely beach wedding in Dominican Republic. Members of Jamie’s family who attended were Carol and Brian Gray, Dianne and Brittany Gray, his grandmother Muriel Wotten, Pat Millson, Tom and Wilma Wotten and Jeff Norma Lott and Denise Lott. They enjoyed a lovely week in the sun. Blackstock was well represented at the Farewell

party on Thursday afternoon in honour of Rev. Dale and Anita Davis held at Trinity United Church, Boybcaygeon. Due to poor health, they have moved from Bobcaygeon to a retirement home in Etobicoke after 20 years to be nearer their family. As the time for graduation from colleges and universities is fast approaching, please share your family’s news with me so the community can learn of our young people’s achievements. Winners at the Tuesday evening card party were Alma Manns, Val Priebe, Don Trunks, Wilma VanCamp, Marilyn Trunks (low), Keith VanCamp (lone hands). Specials were won by Laura Zyck, Lawrence McLaughlin, Alma Manns, Elaine Bailey. If you enjoy playing euchre, join this group any Tuesday evening at St. John’s Anglican Parish Hall before 7:30 a.m.

Church news: The beautiful flowers in the sanctuary on Sunday were in memory of Dale Masche whose funeral service was on April 20 at Greenbank church. Sincere sympathy to the Masche families and Dale’s friends. Former principal of Greenbank Public School, Ralph Rowe of Oshawa, passed away earlier this month after a short battle with cancer. Mr. Rowe will be fondly remembered by former students, their parents and fellow teachers. Condolences to his wife Doreen. Happy birthday to Valerie Hunter was sung. Bible quiz answers were given by Jaelynn Phoenix and Ilak and Sophie Nixon. The senior choir’s anthem “Just a Little Talk with Jesus” was great! The message for all was “Hear Him?” Next Sunday, plan to stay for lunch and congregational meeting (one hour) following 11 a.m. service.
