Saturday, April 11th was “Seedy Saturday” at the Mildmay-Carrick Public Library! People were encouraged to take their unwanted and extra seeds to the seed swap. The special guest for the day was Devan Penny (centre) from Fair Fields Community Shared Agriculture, Neustadt. He was in attendance to share information about his farm and answer any questions. Librarian Pat Markle (left) and Library Clerk Brigitte Wolf (right) are also pictured. There were two draws made, and the winners were Joel Wolf- Edwards who won a shovel and peat pellet and Trisha Voisin who won a package of S-hooks and a garden stake. – Town Crier photo
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. Congratulations to all of the lucky winners, and to the Optimists for staging another successful “race”!
Left to right: Jason Barlow of Teeswater, Bruce Reinhart and Kevin Klein, both of Mildmay, enjoyed their weekend as a part of the pioneer encampment at the Old-Tyme Maple Syrup Festival on March 28th & 29th at Saugeen Bluffs Conservation Area outside of Paisley. The event is organized each year by the Saugeen Valley Conservation Foundation and features a wide variety of demonstrations and activities. 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
