Sincere sympathy to the family and friends of Len McCormick. He will be sadly missed by many. Len was an active person over many years in the district. Hockey, the Odd Fellows, being a LaVallee councillor, and much more filled Len’s life. It’s easy to see why Len was chosen Senior of the Year, a few years ago.

Many will remember Len’s love of old time dancing as he twirled his partner almost off her feet with his strength and expertise of dancing. Len loved people and especially his three sons and their families. He will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren. Our community sends condolences to all who are grieving.

Happy 80th birthday to Betty McTavish. Betty reached this milestone birthday last week. We wish Betty more happy, full-filled years.
