Social Notes – January 31, 2024

Quyon - Jillian Young

Hard work continues to pay off for Kenzie Smith, as she brought home another bronze medal in figure skating this past weekend. Kenzie performed Star 4 in Skate Ontario Glen Cairn Love to Skate Competition. Her family is very proud of her. Way to go Kenzie.
The family and friends of Mary Hamilton gathered at the family sugar camp on Saturday afternoon to help Mary celebrate her 75th birthday. There was lots of fun in the snow for all, great food, and card games. Everyone had a great time, and it was a great celebrating in honour of Mary.
On Sunday afternoon, the family and friends of Grace Cote and Hunter Milford gathered at the Quyon Community Centre to shower the couple with gifts and good wishes, as they are expecting their first baby. Guests enjoyed a delicious light lunch, and played fun shower games, while the new parents-to-be opened many gifts for their baby boy, due in March. We are wishing Gracie and Hunter all the best as they anxiously await to meet their little guy.
Deepest sympathy is going out to Clifford and Veronique Gibson, as their son Eric Gibson passed away on Sunday following a recent illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of Eric’s loved ones at this sad time.
Happy Sweet 16 to Mackenzie McKenny, celebrating on Feb. 1, with love from her family. I’d like to wish a happy birthday to my aunt, Mona MacKechnie, as she also celebrates Feb. 1.

On Friday evening our family celebrated Larry’s birthday at Rhonda and Mark’s. We enjoyed a tasty chili dinner and a beautiful birthday cake. We ended up having a kitchen party in their kitchen. We sang, danced and had so much fun. It will be a night to remember for a long time.
