Providence Bay News and Notes

The winners of the end of the month euchre tournament for April were as follows: a tie for first place by Lois and Barb as well as Marcel and Deanie. Both teams had 86 points. Second place winners were Donna and Eva with 80 points. And the third place winner was Sharlene and Lenora with 76 points. The most lone hands of the night was eight and went to Lois and Barb. The low hands went to Aline and Lilly. Congratulations to all!

Les Granville was down to Peterborough to visit his daughter Lesley Kerckhoff and family.

The municipal street sweepers were in town and swept up all the sidewalks and then the roadways of all the sand that had been spread out over the winter. It sure cleans up the village. It’s so nice to see all the green grass growing and the buds on the trees almost appearing to grow before your eyes.

The fishermen have been having good luck catching rainbow trout. It’s been a beautiful spring and we hope that all the April showers will bring us May flowers.

We wish a speedy recovery to Stuart Pearson who had surgery on his foot and is recovering at home.
