A HeeHaw Fundraiser for the Elwood Sagle Family is being held at the Community of Christ Church on Saturday, November 10 beginning at 7 pm. Come on out and enjoy an evening of fun and entertainment. If you would like to participate in the evening or to donate, you can call Dawn Dawson at 705-377-5003. Elwood will be off work for medical reasons until after Christmas which will be a financial strain for the family who will require medications for Elwood, gas for vehicles to attend appointments, food for the table, other household expenses as well as Christmas expenses for the kids. They say charity starts at home, so we are looking for help for this family who have helped others in need whenever they can. Please donate what you can and spread the word. You can also donate at www.gofundme.com and search for Please Help Elwood Sagle Family.

Remembrance Day falls on Sunday this year. Every year since 1931 at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month we gather to stand in honour of all who have fallen. Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve. We’re lucky to have our local cenotaph that has historically been such a gathering place.
