Social Notes – November 15, 2023

Quyon - Jillian Young

What a terrific crowd out on Saturday for the Onslow Christmas Craft Sale at the Community Centre in Quyon. I had a busy day at my table selling Watkins products, and it was so nice to see many friendly faces out doing their Christmas shopping, supporting Onslow School while also supporting local vendors and artisans. It was a successful day all around. Kudos to Stacy Johnston and her team of volunteers for hosting one of the best Christmas Craft Sales in the area.
On Sunday, Nov. 12, Shawville Figure Skating Club member Mackenzie Smith won a silver medal at the CPA Asticou 2023 Invitations competition in Aylmer, QC. Kenzie is the daughter of Nathan Smith and Leslie Stanton, and grand-daughter of Ken and Diane Stanton. She is coached by Kayla Savard. Everyone is so proud of her hard work. Way to go, Kenzie.
This week we have birthday wishes going out to Ray Cavan on Nov. 17, and to Dakota Hudson and Sue Mckay on the 21st. Warm wishes to everyone celebrating special occasions this week.
The Quyon Pastoral Charge is bringing back the Christmas House Tour this year. It will be the first one since the pandemic, and we are so excited. Mark your calendars for Monday, Dec. 4, and you can contact me if you’d like more information or to order tickets. So looking forward to it.
