Small Town News
I live in a fairly sleepy little town of 17,000 souls situated on Georgian Bay. Not much happens here of any earth-shaking consequence. The big news about town right now is the arrival of new garbage bins for us to put out our trash once a week. Ho hum.
And so, it was pretty alarming when earlier today, apparently a car came careening down the roadway and the driver deliberately drove into the water. The rumors are already flailing away, some saying the car was loaded with firearms, others speculating about whether the driver survived. The car’s in about 45 feet of water, they’ve got it marked but have yet to pull it out.
Meanwhile, in other news…
For many people, Fridays at the local Legion has meant a special time of listening to live music, spending sociable time with friends, dancing away the evening and trying your luck with the ever-popular free meat draws. Thanks to COVID-19, however, it’s been more than a year-and-a-half since the Legion’s been open to the public.
But now, with the provincial government’s easing of public gathering rules, our local branch is set to open its doors to the community once again. On Nov. 19, the Midlandaires, the band I sing with, will kick off our Welcome Back performance beginning at 4:30 p.m. We are thrilled to be performing again and entertaining our friends in the community.
