This year Sacred Heart High School’s Crusader Productions are taking their audience back to the year 1959, to Clinton, Ontario when 14 year old Steven Truscott was wrongly accused and hence convicted in the rape and murder of 12 year old Lynne Harper.  “Innocence Lost: A Play About Steven Truscott” was written by Beverly Cooper. Presenting a play about an actual event  is a different approach for the school, but promises to be a very thought provoking production.  Drama teacher, Veronica Davidson, said that the event not only “rocked Clinton, but the entire nation”.  The play shows how children were taken from a carefree summer day to the tragedy of a horrendous crime and how it changed them.  The student actors visited the actual locations that are depicted in the play to get a true sense of how their characters may have felt.  Dyllan Mooser who plays Steven, said it was intimidating to be in the courthouse and felt a sense of coldness and despair when sitting in the cell at the jail.  “I felt like I was walking in his (Steven’s) footsteps, and understood how unfortunate it all was,” he added. The students also visited the woods where Lynne’s body was found and held a special prayer service there.    The play is being presented in the gym at Sacred Heart School in Walkerton from Wednesday, May 20th to Saturday, May 23rd.  Tickets are  $15.00 for Adults and $10.00 for Students and Seniors. Tickets  are available at  SHHS’s Main Office and Marlin Travel in Walkerton and can also be purchased at the door. Seating is limited and numbered, therefore it is recommended you purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointment. For more information, please call the school at 519-881-1900.

The Optimist Club of Mildmay-Carrick held its 20th “Annual Duck Race” on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015.   Conditions were favourable on Otter Creek as the 500 ducks wended their way through Mildmay’s Rotary Park. Teresa Huber’s “lucky duck” crossed the finish line first and earned her the big prize of $250.00. Winners of $100.00 each were the ducks that came in 100th, 200th, 300th, 400th and 500th. Claiming these prizes were Tom Smith, Lily Huber, Betty Siegner, Chris Speers and Todd & Jen Fortney & Family.  (Sometimes it pays to finish last!) And there were 15 lucky winners of $50.00 each for every “25th” duck (ie. 25th, 50th, 75th, etc.).   Happy recipients of these prizes included Verlaine Stark, Dylan Stuy, Nash King, Mark Kraemer, Gerry Bross, Ross & Nora Howe, Allison Bross, Kevin Gutscher, Chris Grahl, Caleb Grubb, Chip & Susan Bross, Irene Kain, Lauren Grubb, Scott & Carrie Girdler and  Morley & Lorraine Fischer.

Visitors could get their fill of maple treats and of course pancakes and syrup!  Kevin mentioned that he had brought along a copy of the Town Crier which provided the perfect opportunity for this photo.  That paper sure gets out and about!   – Town Crier photo
