Social Notes – Oct. 11, 2023

Quyon - Jillian Young

Despite dreary weather, it was a terrific Thanksgiving weekend. We enjoyed the Thanksgiving service at Quyon United Church on Sunday morning, where the sanctuary had been beautifully decorated by the UCW ladies and was just brimming with harvest bounty. Our family then gathered at my mom’s for a delicious turkey dinner that evening. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and found plenty to be grateful for.
Congratulations to Dannah Draper and Brandon Nugent, as they were married in Las Vegas on Oct. 4. A group of close friends and family travelled with them for the special occasion. Wishing the newlyweds all the best as they begin this chapter of their lives together.
Best wishes are going out to Kelsey Turcotte and Brandon Erfle, as they exchanged vows on Saturday at Starborn Farm in Bristol. Congratulations to the happy couple and wishing them all the best as they begin this next part of their journey as husband and wife.
Deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Emmett O’Donnell, as he passed away on Oct. 3. Emmett was raised in Quyon, and stayed connected to the community after moving to Ottawa years ago. His friends here will miss him.
Birthday wishes are going out to Lindsay Hamilton and Bev Stanley, both celebrating on Oct. 12, and to Sandra McCann on the 13th. Big birthday wishes are going out to my nephew, Caden Provost, as he turns 18 on Oct. 14, with love from all of his family. Happy birthday to Dale MacKechnie, Ben Duquette, and Mitchel Trudeau, who also all celebrate on the 14th, to Luna Watson on the 16th, and to Henry Timpson on the 17th. Best wishes to everyone celebrating milestones this week.
This coming Saturday is the annual Quyon Lionettes Car Rally, which is always one of my favourite days of the year. Looking forward to hitting the back roads to search for clues and answers to questions with my team. This year’s theme is “Candyland” and I can’t wait to see what the organizing team has in store for us. Good luck to all who are participating.

What a change in the weather since last week. Our beautiful, warm, summer like days have fleeted away. It is rainy, cold and damp. Our fall weather has set in.
