Van Ankum receives jubilee medal for work with diabetes society

Sawmill model - The Mapleton Historical Society’s display at the 2013 Drayton Kinsmen Farm Show featured a scale model of an 1880s mill that was typical to the Mapleton area in that era. There were 11 operational sawmills within Mapleton during that period.

2013 Drayton Farm Show a success as two-day event draws over 2,100 by Patrick Raftis DRAYTON – The 32nd annual Drayton Kinsmen Farm Show was a resounding success, organizers report. The two-day event, held April 3 and 4 at the PMD Community Centre drew 2,144 in paid attendance. Kinsmen show chair John Klassen said attendance was even higher when including the many children under 12 who attend the show for free. “They’re future tractor buyers,� he notes. Klaassen said the above-average turnout, which included a record-breaking draw of over 1,200 people on the Wednesday, can be partially attributed to the weather, as well as the attraction of over 100 exhibitors at the show. “The only request I had from exhibitors was to make sure the weather’s the same for next year’s show,� said Klaassen, noting that because there is still snow on the fields in the area, “no one is on the fields everyone’s at the farm show.� With $1 from every admission fee going to support cystic fibrosis research, the turnout means $2,144 will go toward that cause, said Klaassen. While the finally tally isn’t in, the rest of the proceeds from the show will go toward the Kinsmen’s community betterment projects including support for the construction of new playgrounds in Drayton and Moorefield, a project they will share with the Moorefield Optimists. The large crowds also provided a boost for the Drayton Minor Hockey Association, which operates the food booth

by Patrick Raftis DRAYTON – Longtime volunteer Alice Van Ankum has been recognized with a Diamond Jubilee Medal for more than 35 years of service to the Canadian Diabetes Society (CDA). The Drayton resident has been volunteering with the North Perth-North Wellington CDA chapter since it’s inception about 37 years ago, along with her husband George Van Ankum and Irma Ternan of Harriston, said CDA regional director Kerry Bruder, who presented the medal to Van Ankum at the local chapter’s annual general meeting on April 4. Van Ankum said she originally got involved with the society in support of her husband, who has now been living with diabetes for more than 50 years. George was diagnosed with the condition at the age of 22, not long after the couple was married. Over the years she has taken on numerous roles with the society, including acting as membership convenor and co-chairing fundraising campaigns. Still, the recognition was not something she was anticipating. Noting she was honored to receive the medal, Van Ankum said, “I was very surprised when I got the letter.�

diabetes or prediabetes,� stated Doug Macnamara, President and CEO of the CDA. The Diamond Jubilee Medal Program was created by the federal government to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation. The medals were manufactured by the Royal Canadian Mint.

Organizers ready for fifth Zeal for Teal, April 27 By Glynis M. Belec DRAYTON - The fifth annual Zeal for Teal on April 27 at the Drayton Arena, promises to be the best yet. With a whimsical Alice in Wonderland theme, this year’s ovarian cancer fundraiser will showcase a “hoity-toity” tea party with attitude. Participants are being encouraged to dress in costume in preparation for a fashion show. Zeal for Teal, a surprisefilled day of scrapbooking and crafting for the cause, continues to grow in popularity with local attendees joining participants from as far away as Woodstock, Hanover and Burlington. As indicated on the Ovarian Cancer Canada website http:// www.ovariancanada.org, ovarian cancer is the most serious of all gynecological cancers. Over 2,600 Canadian women are diagnosed every year; and every year 1,750 women succumb to this disease. Symptoms are varied, vague and easily missed. There is no screening test to detect it. But when found early, and treated, ovarian cancer survival rate is 90 per cent. Zeal for Teal aims to help educate women about the silent symptoms of ovarian cancer. This special day also is an important way for the Sunflower Seeds Team to help raise funds for the annual Ovarian Cancer Canada Walk of Hope in Barrie. Participants attend Zeal for Teal for many different reasons. Jan Moxey travels from Burlington each year Her mother was misdiagnosed and died from Ovarian Cancer in 2008 so it is important for her to support events like Zeal for Teal that help raise awareness about the insidiousness of ovarian cancer. “Since her passing,” says Moxey, “I have looked for dif-

Moxey loves the way the organizers and community are so welcoming. “I anticipate it every year not only because it is a way to honour my mother but I love the event.” Moxey always brings along a car full of friends to help her through the day. “They put on a fabulous day of scrapbooking, prizes, and real homemade country cooking which the city girls who come with me, appreciate.” Local business have been supportive with donations of door prizes, silent auction and penny table items, food, beverages, flowers, decorations and more. As a way of giving back to the community, the Zeal for Teal committee decided to ask participants to bring along items for the local food bank. Also, there is an ongoing

Zeal for Teal friend, and editor of Maranatha News of Toronto, Johanne Robertson, came up with the idea that people across Canada should be encouraged to save their pennies and donate them to the Sunflower Seeds team. Robertson used her influence and has inspired people from Toronto to Vancouver to start saving. Donation jars can be found, locally, in Drayton Foodmarket and at The Family Clothesline downtown. For the past three years, the Arthur and Drayton branches of the Royal Bank have participated in Teal Fridays. Zeal for Teal committee members are very thankful for the ongoing enthusiasm and desire of staff to help raise awareness by wearing teal and donating to the cause.

Roundtable provides input on agriculture policy by Patrick Raftis CLIFFORD – Area Conservative MPPs got some feedback on their party’s proposed agricultural policies at a roundtable meeting here April 4. Perth-Wellington MPP Randy Pettapiece co-hosted the gathering, along with HuronBruce MPP Lisa Thompson and Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker. The Ontario PC party has released a series of white papers on topics ranging from education to health care as a starting point for formulating policies the party will carry into the next election. The meeting in Clifford focused on their agricultural white paper Paths to Prosperity: Respect for Rural Ontario and attracted about 50 representatives of farm and farm-related organizations. “We’re looking for their input as to what they want to see in the white paper and that will help us form our policy come the next election,” Pettapiece explained. Pettapiece told participants the Conservatives have made changes to some of their white papers as a result of other roundtable discussions. “We can’t think of everything. We can’t know everything,” he explained. “Our party needs to reflect the reality of our stakeholders,” added Thompson. Pettapiece listed red tape reduction and local food promotion as among the key planks in the discussion paper. After breaking into smaller groups for detailed discussion, participants reported back with their thoughts on the proposals. Jason French, regional representative for the Ontario branch of Holstein Canada, said his group felt use of agricultural land for wind turbines and solar farms should be addressed, along with new higher fees for recycling tires for agricultural equipment.

Robert Unsworth, of the Wellington County Cattlemen’s Association advisory council, said food safety Henni Klaassen should be a policy focus. show + sell sApril :00 :00 “We need better promoMon’s & Tues’ 10 -12 tion and marketing of our great Water colour ams :30 3:30 1 Thurs’ standards,” he stated.

Pettapiece said his party appreciates the input, both positive and negative, provided at the round tables and will take it into account as they finalize their election platform. “We encourage them, if they don’t like something, for gosh sakes tell us about it.

MPP RANDY PETTAPIECE French’s group also wants to see policies to help Ontario farmers compete with their American counterparts. For example, he noted, “U.S. farmers have a better ability to write off agricultural equipment than our farmers do.” French said the group questioned the emphasis on support for local food in the white paper. “Cash businesses are fine, but they won’t transform into an actual formula for success for our industry. Can we also have some support for our main agricultural industries in Ontario?” French used a can of baked beans picked up at the Drayton Farm Show earlier in the day to illustrate a missed economic opportunity related to Ontario agriculture. “These are Ontario beans, shipped to the United Kingdom for packaging and then sent back here,” he said. Roger Robertson, who works in agricultural lending with BMO said his group felt the white paper was “an attempt to address the issues.” However, he added, “there has to be follow up.” Robertson’s group felt the idea of red tape reduction is more complicated than the

JASON FRENCH white paper makes it appear. “Do you remove some of it? Do you remove all of it? Is some of it good for some, but not for others? I’m not sure what the measurement of progress is on that.” Gemma Mendez-Smith, of the Four County Labour Marketing Planning Board said her group also questioned the prevailing “buy-local” focus. “Buying local is important, but it will not lead to success in the sector,” she said. Mendez-Smith said labourforce retention in rural Ontario was another area of concern discussed by her group. “We have thousands of people moving to our region, but we also have thousands moving out,” said MendezSmith, executive director of the planning board, which covers Bruce, Grey, Huron and Perth counties. “We have to start thinking about how to retain the people who keep moving out. “The people going out are the younger workers … and they are the ones with the skills that we need to grow our communities.” Noting young people do need to leave the region to further their education, she said “we need to make it attractive for them to come back.”

The local history columns are the latest digitization project for the archives, which has already placed the Tweedsmuir history books compiled by area Women’s Institutes and a series of essays and journals from the Wellington County Historical Society online. The history column collection includes: - Thorning’s Valuing Our History which ran from 1990 to 1994 in the Elora Sentinel, from 1995 to 98 in the FergusElora News Express and the Wellington Advertiser from 1998 to the present and Timelines which was published

in the Community News from 2001 to 2008; - Pat Mestern`s, Looking Back, which focusses on Centre Wellington and has appeared since 1990 in the News Express; and - Mapleton Musings, written by Jean Campbell and various members of the Mapleton Historical Society, which has appeared in the Community News since 2006. While some of the columns were supplied in digital form by the authors, Wagner said about half of them had to be scanned and converted to text format through Optical Character Recognition technology. Either way, she noted, the columns were carefully proofread to ensure the online version matches the printed

articles word for word. “It’s terrific that all this material will be online and I’m probably going to be one of the major users of it,” said Thorning, who estimates he’s generated about 1.5 million words on local history since he began writing the columns 24 years ago. “So please go home and do some research, and read some great articles,” Wagner urged at the launch.

Farm show a perfect fit With nearly 2,200 people dropping a $3 admission fee, and exhibitors and younger visitors adding to the total attendance, the 32nd Annual Drayton Farm Show was an unqualified success. Through the efforts of the Kinsmen and the participation of exhibitors and the local community, the event has become perhaps the premier agricultural showcase in this part of Ontario. The economic impacts of the show are far-reaching, as it encourages support for local businesses and provides the Kinsmen with the means to contribute to a variety of community causes, including this year’s focus on development of new playgrounds in Drayton and Moorefield. The Cystic Fibrosis foundation also benefits, receiving $1 from every paid admission, which this year totals $2,144. The show also provides a great opportunity for area farmers to check out the latest in farm services and technology, timed perfectly just before they hit the fields for the spring planting season. An educational component provided this year through seminars offered by the provincial agriculture and rural affairs ministries was well received and is an element organizers plan on expanding in the future. The Drayton Kinsmen Farm Show is a perfect fit with the agriculture-driven economy of this region and the club is deserving of acclaim for keeping the event fresh and focused. Patrick Raftis

Local history online Given the popularity of the Mapleton’s Historical Society’s Mapleton Musings column in the Community News, it’s clear there’s a strong interest in local heritage in this area. Local history is an important tie binding any community and those who record and promote it do important, if often unheralded, work. The Wellington County Museum and Archives, through its recently launched Local History Articles Digitization Project, is making the work of the local historical society, as well as other area columnists such as the Wellington Advertiser’s Stephen Thorning more accessible to both researchers and casual readers. The columns, back to their inception, can now be found online in easily searchable format through the archives’ website. Through the efforts of archives staff and volunteers, nearly 800 articles on local history have been digitized and catalogued through the project. To access the files, readers should start at the archives website www.wellington.ca/en/discover/museumandarchives.asp, then click on the Collections and Research tab. From there, a quick click on the Search Museum and Archives Online Collections tab puts decades worth of tales of local history and tradition literally at your fingertips. The archives plans to continue adding to the collections as long as the local columnists keep writing, so the resource will be an ever-changing one with new gems to discover on a regular basis. That means local history buffs have something to look forward to, as well as back on. Patrick Raftis

Mapleton Musings Column courtesy of Mapleton Historical Society From a Sunday stroll to walking trails A 1940s clipping from the Advocate tells of the local CNR express deliveryman Louis Siegmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s adventure. It was his habit, of a Sunday afternoon, to stroll along the Conestoga River. The river runs through what was then a pasture field of the Richardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; farm. While he strolled along, a young bull in the pasture suddenly attacked him. He was able to fend off the bull and escaped with only a torn shirt. The writer related that Siegman

was forced to turn matador by the encounter, but had no desire to turn professional bullfighter just because of his success that Sunday. Many old pictures of groups of young people show them gathering by small fire in a local bush or at a scenic spot by river. Even when I was a teenager we were expected to pass Sunday afternoon in some quiet fashion. It was acceptable to gather a group of friends and go for a walk. Since we then lived on a farm some miles from any village, that

meant walking a half-mile or so to meet those friends. We then decided whether to stroll along the concessions or follow the river. Since the river meandered through most farm pastures the grass was short on the banks and the walking easy. We never did encounter a bull, only a few herds of cows and the odd fisherman. We probably had walked a good 10 miles or more by the time we returned home for supper and chores. Times and laws have changed. Seldom does one stroll at will over anotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

farm or property. People now use public property for their walking and jogging. Thank to the efforts of local organizations there are walking trails in several locations throughout Mapleton. The trails along the Conestoga River and its tributaries let people commune with nature and enjoy a quiet time broken only by sound of trickling water. Other trails have been built around the perimeter of sports playing fields and parks and offer the opportunity for more vigorous walking or jogging. The old sand race track at

the Drayton fair grounds has also been a popular spot. In the 1940s it was used by Draytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reeve Andrews to exercise his racing horse. It is used by the schools for track and field events. It has always been a destination for local walkers wanting a brisk lap or two. While the concept of walking or jogging to keep fit has been promoted in the last 50 years, walking for pleasure is something people will always do. One has only to look around when the weather is pleasant to see families, couples, and

Zeal for Teal, April 27

Talking shop - The Drayton Kinsmen Farm Show provides an opportunity for farmers and farm business operators to meet and discuss the latest advances in the field. Darrell Green, left and Stuart Martin were among those talking shop at the Conestoga Agri-Systems booth. photo by Patrick Raftis

FROM PAGE THREE The photo booth is always a big hit as Jessika Sutton from Dream Photography once again snaps pictures for a suggested donation. Door prizes and a grand prize donated by local resident Louis W.F. Latham will be awarded. There are still a few spots available for those who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet registered and for anyone who might not be able to spend an entire day, Zeal for Teal has opened their doors once again to visitors. As Jan Moxey indicates, Zeal for Teal is a not only a day of raised awareness, a celebration of life, a time of new and renewed friendship and fun, it is also a bond created by a sis-

terhood. She knows firsthand how important it is for women to become aware of their own bodies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be part of Zeal for Teal?â&#x20AC;? says Moxey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is what makes me come back to Drayton each year.â&#x20AC;?

per week goal has to be cardio. One day we may decide to go for a run, bike or walk. The next day, the decision could be made to go out onto the porch and do some pushups, sit ups, planks or weight work (cans of soup make for good weights if a set of dumbbells are not available). If we struggle to find motivation for working out and keeping up with our active living then it may be a good idea to book some days at the beach in the calendar. Having that perfect beach body for summer can make some of us go crazy with physical activity in order to be able to not embarrass ourselves as we bask in the sun and hopefully remember to apply our SPF 40. Remember that the summer can get very hot and it is key to be in good physical shape during these months. Summer is a difficult time for many people as the humidity makes it harder to breathe and to be active. Being behind the eight ball already when this weather presents itself, does nothing to help our health during these times. Spring is the best time

to start our physical activity habits, as good weather will be around until winter comes back again in a yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time. However, this does not give leeway for when we start making our routine, as we all know that mid summer will be here soon enough when we may use the excuse â&#x20AC;&#x153;its too hot to work out today.â&#x20AC;? It takes 21 days to make a habit so letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s make sure we get outside at the first sign of grass and start this three week process to make a lasting routine. If you are not big into physical activity make sure you start off trying to do some with other people as well to get you motivated. Turn everyday dog walkings into a social group. Have long walks with your dog, whether imaginary or real. This season letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all make good with our promises to ourselves to get in better physical shape and improve our lifestyles. No matter what age or physical condition, we can always improve and make positive decisions that will benefit us long term and short term. Run out into the outdoors as we have been cooped up all win-

Put a little â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;springâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; back into your step With spring beginning, the excuses for why we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exercise are quickly fading away with the winter weather. Soon the sun will be shining daily, with a perfect temperature every day, sidewalks and bike paths will be open and begging for use. People can come out of hibernation and step outside to welcome the weather they will become accustom to for the next few months. Birds will be calling us outside with their morning chirps and we will be greeted by the sun, which has become such a distant feeling over these past winter months. Now is the time for everyone to dust off their running shoes and make sure new yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resolutions to do something about activity levels and health donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fall apart. Soak in every bit of daylight that we have, since it was so deprived and in short supply this stormy winter. Making the conscious effort to walk, bike or run to places rather than driving is a solution many of us will consider trying, however, we must make good with this decision and actually follow through. Remember we are not required to run a marathon every day. Government of Canada physical activity guidelines state peple should strive to complete a minimum 150 minutes of exercise per week. This can be broken down into smaller segments throughout the week over a course of four or five days. Rest days are important just as long as they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t turn out to be rest weeks, months, or years. It also is worth mentioning that in order to get the benefit we want for our body we need to perform these exercises for at least 15 minutes continuously at one time. Not every type of physical activity that performed to accomplish this 150-minute

groups of young people strolling the streets, lanes and byways. During the winter many people walk the hallways of shopping malls or at the local community centre. Since our municipal bylaws prohibit letting dogs run loose, dog owners are out with their pets in all kinds of weather. When it is stormy and cold, one wonders which of them would rather be curled up by the fire at home.

PAGE SIX The Community News, Friday, April 12, 2013

By Rev. Calvin Brown, Knox Presbyterian Church, Drayton

Interest in angels There is a great interest in angels these days it seems. Recently as I re-read some of the gospel accounts I was arrested by the response to angels by those they appeared to. Sometimes in popular culture angels seem to be mild, sweet, and chubby like a cupid but the biblical angels are anything but that. On TV there is also a great increase in considering the role and nature of angels in our world. A popular series a few years ago was named Angels and portrayed them mostly in their role as guardians sent by God to protect people who called out for help. A more recent and more dramatic portrayal is seen in the series called Supernatural. One commentator described is as follows: “Since Supernatural high-

lights the battle between good and evil, the show features both good angels and evil demons. Among the good angels is Castiel (Misha Collins), who rescued Dean from hell and can kill demons simply by touching them; among the evil demons is head demon Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino). The show also includes characters based on the real archangels Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel. The fifth season has the Winchester brothers, and Dean mending their fractured relationship while plotting how to stop not only the Devil, but also the archangel Michael, who vows to fight Lucifer to the death -- at the cost of a few million humans. The brothers learn that their destinies are tied to this epic battle. They encounter angels, demons, gods, grim reapers, the Horsemen of the Apocalypse, even the antichrist - but nothing seems to alter the inevitable battle for the fate of

mankind.” What is interesting is that in this series angels are a mixed bunch. Some are evil (the demons) and some are guardians, some come with healing power, and some as bearers of wisdom from the mind of God. About.com Angels and Miracles reminds us that : Angels appear in the religious texts of Islam, Judaism and Christianity. The founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, said that Gabriel appeared to him to dictate the entire Qur’an. In Al Baqarah 2:97, the Qur’an declares: “Who is an enemy to Gabriel! For he brings down the (revelation) to thy heart by God’s will, a confirmation of what went before, and guidance and glad tidings for those who believe.” In the Hadith, Gabriel again appears to Muhammad and quizzes him about Islam’s tenets. Muslims believe that Gabriel gave the prophet Abraham a stone

known as the Black Stone of Ka’aba; Muslims who travel on pilgrimages to Mecca, Saudi Arabia kiss that stone. Muslims, Jews, and Christians all believe that Gabriel delivered news of the upcoming births of three famous religious figures: Isaac, John, and Jesus. So people sometimes associate Gabriel with childbirth, adoption, and raising children. Jewish tradition says that Gabriel instructs babies before they’re born. In the Torah, Gabriel interprets the prophet Daniel’s visions, saying in Daniel 9:22 that he has come to give Daniel “insight and understanding.” Jews believe that, in heaven, Gabriel stands besides God’s throne at God’s left hand. God sometimes charges Gabriel with expressing his judgment against sinful people, Jewish beliefs say, as God did when he sent Gabriel to use fire to destroy the ancient city of Sodom that was filled with wicked people. Christians

often think of Gabriel informing Mary that God has chosen her to become the mother of Jesus Christ. In Matthew’s account of the resurrection i(Matt.28:1-10) we see this same mix of terror and comfort. We see that angel that comes from heaven to open the tomb occasions an earthquake and when the guards saw him they were so afraid they shook and became as dead men. The angels are described as appearing like lightning, with clothes white as snow. When the holy women appeared however they spoke words of instruction and comfort. They were told not to be afraid (in spite of the angelic appearance that made armytoughened soldiers freeze in fright) and they were told that Jesus was risen from the dead and that he would meet the disciples there just as he had planned before the crucifixion. Today many still don’t know what to think of angels. Some may write them off as

mythological creatures, others will tell stories of how they personally have experienced angelic deliverances, others believe, because of what they read in the holy books but say they haven’t personal experience as yet. That young people, many who have never attended church regularly in their lives, are increasingly drawn to understand and embrace the supernatural world of angels and realize as the holy books say that their world and ours intersect is a marvel. It is more important than ever that people of faith study what the Bible says about angels and God’s intervention in our world so that they can speak knowledgeably with young people about these realities so they may be warned of the dangers and comforted by presence of these mysterious angelic creatures. Most importantly they need to know that Jesus Christ, the son of God, is Lord of the Angels and all must do his bidding.

ALMA - The Alma Bible Church was the site of the recent gathering of 165 supporters of the Central Wellington Branch of the Canadian Bible Society (CBS). Ron Whitelaw welcomed the group and introduced chairman John Agar who made a presentation to Thelma French in recognition for her untiring and cheerful dedication in her long-time secretarial position for the local society. Following a beef dinner, Peter Ellis, as master of ceremonies, introduced the guest soloist, Giulia Mandolesi who sang several well-known hymns in her rich and reverent a cappella voice. Greetings from Rev. Don Miller, director of ministry advancement for CBS, were heard, as he emphasized the

work of the society and thanked all for their continued support. The guest speaker Rev. Eleanor Clitheroe, CEO of Prison Fellowship Canada gave a talk entitled Prisoner’s Key to Freedom. She was particularly appreciative of the CBS for the production and distribution of thousands of The Key To Freedom Bibles to prisoners and their families through the work of prison pastors and Prison Fellowship Canada.

Several local clergy took part in the program and pianist Ursula Ellis accompanied the singing of hymns during the meeting. The Canadian Bible Society expressed gratitude to all sponsors and supporters of the event, “whose generosity and faith helped make this event a success.” More than $3,000 was raised in offering and $2,000 in advertising for the cause.

The Mapleton & Area Business Profile

Ashberry Home Improvements - providing quality workmanship at an affordable rate

MAPLETON - Combining practical with personal best describes Peter Hirtle’s approach to home interior and exterior renovations, at Ashberry Homes in Mapleton. From decks, to hardwood flooring and window installations, Hirtle takes each project and customizes it to the homeowner’s personality and style. Ashberry Homes has been serving the area for the past seven years, though Hirtle’s passion for home renovations began in the 1980s as he renovated his first starter home. The love of home refurbishing continued with a second fixerupper in the ‘90s and the trend continued. Hirtle enjoys designing to someone’s dream project. Recently he took on the refurbishing of treasured door features from a former homestead and reconstituted the pieces into a bar. It became his most recent favorite project. Hirtle recognizes the need to save people money while maintaining or upgrading the value of their home. Ongoing investment into home renovations not only increases family harmony in

enjoyable living spaces, but also increases resale value when it is time to put the house on the market again. Hirtle has a mindset of finding affordable solutions that fit the project’s individual requirements; he is constantly brainstorming ideas that are cost savers for his customers. As a small business owner Hirtle largely works alone but has developed a growing network of experienced tradesmen in the industry who mutually call on each other for larger projects as needed. Recently, Ashberry Homes expanded outside the realm of home renovations and have done minor maintenance projects in chicken barns. In addition, Ashberry Homes offers stump grinding services when lawn cutting season comes around. Quality workmanship, at an affordable rate, is important to Hirtle, noting that it’s the smaller customized projects that give him the most satisfaction. As with most contractors seasonal factors determined when

and how a project begins and Hirtle notes people need to remember to put enough lead time into their deadlines. Carpentry is also one of Hirtle’s specialties and he relishes the challenge of building creative solutions that may not be initially obvious to the homeowner. Recently a customer wanted a kitchen table island to look rustic, yet highly durable. Hirtle translated those qualities into a wall-mounted, handcrafted, epoxy-finished table which fit the kitchen’s current décor. Ashberry Homes offers home local content that is based out of the Moorefield and Drayton area and has a happy customer base that extends to K/W and Guelph area and beyond. With family as his passion Hirtle brings his values to his workmanship and business practices, always with a goal of making a house home friendly. For your next home renovation project don’t hesitate to give Peter a call or check him out on Facebook to see more of his projects and developments. Tel: 519-638-2689 cell: 519-502-1144.
