Are you looking for that unique Christmas gift? The Annual Christmas Craft Sale is on Saturday November 6th. Joyce Casement organizes this show every year for local crafters.

I decided to join three year old Alex Benson as he wound his way around the Farmers Market with his grandmother Linda Bates on Saturday October 30th. Alex was dressed in his scariest dinosaur costume and did his best to scare all the vendors who contained their laughter and doled out the Halloween treats. He stopped at K's Klubhouse who with the market provided free pumpkins to carve and free Halloween crafts to create. His tummy was rumbling by then and with his dinosaur nose he caught the scent of pancakes and sausages. He made a beeline for the Lion's Pancake Breakfast inside the Lion's Club. It had been an extremely busy morning for the Lion's Breakfast. So busy in fact, they had to run out and replenish their stock of sausages. Alex devoured his sausages first as any good meat-eating dinosaur would. By the look of the huge smiles on Alex and Linda's faces, it was a great way to start a weekend.

The Frontenac Fury Pee Wee Girls hockey team would like to thank all the customers of Verona Foodland for their generous donations in supporting girl's hockey on October 8th and 9th. They would also like to thank owners Clint and Andrea Reid for allowing the hockey team to set up and sell raffle tickets outside the grocery store. The girls will be using the monies raised to go to their tournaments in Rockland, Gananoque and Kanata.
