Quyon - Jill Young

Congratulations to Grace Cote and Hunter Milford, as they welcomed their first child on Mar. 12. Their baby boy Charlie Michael James arrived safely, and he is the first grandchild for Caryl and Andre Cote, and Trish and Bill Milford. I know Charlie has some very excited great-grandparents as well. Wishing the whole family all the best.
We were sorry to hear of the passing of my aunt, Doris Young, on Mar. 6. Our thoughts are with all of Aunt Doris’ loved ones at this sad time.
Heartfelt sympathies are extended to the family of Bernadette (Milks) Joyce, as she passed away on Mar. 11. I have great memories of Mrs. Joyce at the library, as she was always so helpful and willing to bring in any book I desired when I was young. Thoughts and prayers are with her children, Tony, Melissa, and Patrick, and all of her family as they grieve.
On Friday evening, the Shawville Figure Skating Club hosted their year-end review entitled “Skating Through Time”. The arena was packed as the crowd was treated to amazing skating performances from all ages, to catchy music through the decades. Congratulations to all of the figure skaters on a fantastic season.
The young women of the Quyon Pastoral Charge held their annual Irish Tea on Saturday at Quyon United Church, with a wonderful turnout joining us for tea. Delicious sandwiches and sweets were served, and tea poured in fine china cups. Everyone enjoyed a nice time of fellowship, visiting with friends and neighbours, while decked out in their festive green attire. Many thanks to all who came out to support this event.
On Saturday evening, a Stag and Doe was held at the Quyon Community Centre in honour of Alex Draper and Hailie Conley. The St. Pat’s themed party was attended by many friends and family, as they joined the happy couple to celebrate their upcoming wedding. Larry Chevrier and Arnold Trudeau provided the music for the evening, and everyone had a fantastic time. Wishing Alex and Hailie all the best as their big day approaches.
Congratulations to Rebecca Mohr and Tyler Scott, as they were married on Mar. 14, and then celebrated with their loved ones with a wedding reception on Mar. 15 in Arnprior. Wishing the newlyweds all the best, with love from their Quyon family and friends.
