DYS tallies up Terry Fox totals

It’s been 22 years since the inaugural Terry Fox Run but people are willing to give in even greater numbers.
At Donald Young School, the entire student body and teachers joined in this year’s run there. Even the weatherman co-operated.
After all the tallying was completed, the school had raised $622.50 for this worthy cause.

A friend and I motored to Dryden last Thursday for his appointment with a specialist. The trip was scenic from every viewpoint, especially with the leaves now turning so many colours.
The condition of the roads also were awesome, with only about 50 km of repair work yet to be completed on Highway 502.

The Francis Malcolm family had lived in Mather Township for years and were well-known in our area, as well.
Francis recently passed away and in my conversation with Eileen Malcolm, she expressed her thanks to everyone for all the support the family had received, especially from people in Emo and Mather.
It was all very much appreciated.
