I attended the Ten Thousand Villages Fair on Saturday at Kirk McColl Church in St. Stephen. Some interesting items very well displayed. Also dropped by Covered Bridge Craft Sale at St. Stephen Legion. It was filled to capacity with food, Christmas decorations, homemade purses. Too much to list.

The Annual St. Stephen Santa Claus Parade is November 14 at 5:30 (US).

The Calais Halloween Parade was phenomenal. So cute to see the little ones dressed up. The band was great.

November 11 is Veterans’ Day, Remembrance Day in Canada.

The Charlotte County SPCA Annual Christmas Craft Sale is on Saturday, November 15 at St. Stephen Legion from 8:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (US).

Kay Cochran was the lucky 50/50 draw winner during donation day at the Calais Hospital put on by the Auxiliary. Great turn-out.

The second full week in November is National Geography Week. 

November 15 is National Young Readers’ Day. Read!

The Health and Wellness Fair hosted by Calais Regional Hospital at the WCCC gymnasium a week or so ago was well displayed and very interesting. There were free flu shots, blood pressure, sugar, weigh-in checks and a blood drive by the Red Cross. Also free literature on health and diabetic diet as well as yoga and many freebees.

Make a Difference Day was a success for many fathers taking their children out to eat, others helping elderly shop, groups going for coffee. It sure surprised me to see so many become involved on this particular day.

Just wanted to mention the Cancer Dinner and Auction held at Magoquadovic Place in St. George a week or so ago. There were several breast cancer survivors involved, one being my niece Paula Chick.  More than $1,700 was raised. The proceeds will be divided between Charlotte County Cancer and the N.B. Lions’ Sick Kids Fund.

Pat Yardley and family have returned home from New Hampshire after having attended her brother’s funeral.

Another successful year for the Charlotte Fair. The rooms were packed. Lots of homemade goodies, raffles, crafts, lunches, chance to see friends. The ladies and helpers did a wonderful job. 

I hear once again the makings of a free Thanksgiving dinner at the Second Baptist Church. Sounds like Bill Gibson will be the cook.

Sorry to hear Cecil Moreside has his good and bad days. Prayers are with him.

So happy to hear Edmund Cassidy is improving from his surgery. Keep faith Edmund.

Don’t forget the Baileyville Methodist Church Bazaar on Saturday. I love that fair. Everyone is friendly, free coffee, tasty dynamites, sandwiches, fudge and much more.
