Of harvests & hurricanes (sOrt Of)
here’s a point in the late summer where we simply have to throw up our hands and admit that yes, autumn is just around the corner. For me, it’s the speed with which darkness falls after supper. We sit down to watch the news, fall asleep before Cindy Day tells us what to expect for weather, wake up to switch channels and catch the rest of The Colbert Report…and it’s dark before 8 pm. It happens every year, but every year I greet it with less enthusiasm than I do going to the dentist. That’s not to say that we don’t have some glorious things to do as summer gives way to autumn. Our sometimescranky summer weather straightens itself out to present us with mostly glorious days and nights that are cool enough for pleasant sleeping. Well, other than when we’re getting clobbered by tropical storms and hurricanes, of course. The lawns stop growing quite so fast, the garden doesn’t need so much care, there are plenty of community activities happening; we shift gears as kids return to school, we harvest fruit and vegetables Eat your local veggies! Gabriel Rand sez so! and make preserves and order meat, we told me. “Real games, like Pictionary and think about winterizing the cottage or Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble.” making sure the house repairs are done. This fascinated me.

in our daily living. They are powerful and useful tools, but can also become a way to hide from the real world and real interaction. These two young women are about the same age as my son, and would have grown up with computers always a part of their lives, both at work and at home. Yet instead of having a video-game party, they were planning a regular ‘board game’ type event. Granted, they may well have texted their friends to invite them, or posted a notice on their Facebook, but that would be a marriage of the old with the new. I like that idea. As a writer, it’s very easy for me to be reclusive and hide in my office, communing with my Mac laptop and forgetting to interact with my community. Yet at the same time, I use that time with my computer to write about and encourage others to participate in community. I don’t think either the ‘old way’ (precomputer) or the ‘new way’ is right or wrong; rather, that they can both exist together. I think also it’s easier to have them exist in communities such as ours. And that’s yet another reason to celebrate why we live where we live. cheers, jodi DeLong, editor

I recently returned from a week in Ontario, settling girls into new accommodation for their respective universities. Doug met me at the airport quite late last Saturday evening but had realized too late that he had brought the “little car” and my large suitcase was not going to fit in it. We could either leave the suitcase at the airport and drive all the way back to get it the next day, or pay for a taxi to bring it to our house. Neither option appealed to me! Then, while I was waiting for my bags to turn up on the carousel, I turned around to see our friendly neighbourhood grocer, Sam, greeting some of the passengers from my plane. We explained our lack of car space and he was more than willing to take the bag back to Canning but he wasn’t going back that night. Not wanting to put him out, we decided that we would have to come back for it ourselves. Just as we were about to leave the airport, Sam ran up to tell us that there was yet another person from Canning there who would be glad to take my bag back with him that night. Sam introduced us to Murray Sheffield, whom we didn’t know. Murray very kindly agreed to take my bag back to his home and we picked it up later that night. It really is wonderful to live in a small community where strangers are so willing to help each other out. Thanks to Sam and Murray for all of their help! Fireside Cafe has new owners

members and attending community events, I especially enjoyed representing Canning and the surrounding areas as a guest of many communities in the Annapolis Valley. I wish to extend my sincere gratitude to the people of The Village of Canning and surrounding areas for the phenomenal support that I received throughout this amazing experience. Through this experience, I was provided the opportunity to represent the Annapolis Valley as Miss Annapolis Valley Int’l in the 2010 Miss Nova Scotia International pageant. I was chosen as Miss Annapolis Valley Int’l after an application and interview process. I will be vying for the title of Miss Nova Scotia International during the week of November 15th to November 22nd, 2009 in Halifax, NS. Miss Nova Scotia International is a scholarship program where delegates are judged on intellect, ability to communicate with people, public speaking and overall personality. All delegates are ambassadors of our beautiful province. The delegates promote tourism, assist in charities and other community organizations and are role models for our children and youth. I look forward to representing our beautiful Annapolis Valley. deneen eveRett PRincess canning 2009 miss annaPoLis vaLLey int’L 2010

New law office Opens in Canning fter 14 years of practicing law in Vancouver, native Nova Scotian Brock Beazley decided it was time to come “back home” and begin a new law practice in the valley. “My wife and I had always dreamed of coming back to Nova Scotia to put down roots in this area,” says Brock. “I have always wanted to open my own practice, as I really enjoy making a difference in any way I can, in the community where I live. “Canning and the Blomidon peninsula is beautiful and has so much to offer, and I thought it would be a perfect place to grow a law practice.” Opening the Canning office of How Lawrence White Bowes on Chapel Road, Brock is called to the Bars in both Nova Scotia and in British Columbia, and provides guidance in helping his clients find the best possible solution to those issues that can sometimes require legal advice. With a specialization in insurance and construction law, Brock can also provide assistance in divorce and custody issues, wills, and real estate transactions. New clients are welcome at both his Canning office or in his Wolfville office. To set up an appointment, please call 6913935.

Davidson has written a very nice thank you to the community so again, that’s in a separate column. We wish her and her family all the best in coming ventures. Fans of Laurent D’Entremont had better get their tickets to the Wilf Carter concert, happening on Saturday, 26 September. Laurent will be the guest storyteller, and anyone who has heard his stories knows of his sense of humour and flare for telling tales. Laurent has a new book coming out, Volume Three of “Stories to Remember” which will be available later in October. If you’re on Facebook, you can follow Laurent easily by typing his name into the search engine. (Or just go to my page if you’re a ‘friend’—Laurent and I chat back and forth on my wall regularly). Celtic Colours in Sheffield Mills

O

n 17 October the community of Sheffield Mills will experience our very own Celtic Web of Colours at the Community Hall. This mini-fest of Celtic culture will include three workshops and a night concert. The night concert (8pm) will feature two new bands to our community, The Beatons and HAWP. HAWP’s members are married couple Andy and Niamh Webster. Andy’s discipline being music and Niamh’s dance, it was only a matter of time before the two were to form a group. Andy and Niamh moved from Scotland (to Canning) only a short time ago and their music is

innovative, daring, energetic and full of soul, combining and pushing the limits of Canadian, Scottish and Irish culture. The Beatons have been bringing their own blend of traditional bluegrass, folk and old time country music to the valley for five years now. Made up of husband and wife team Monica and Darrin Beaton of South Tremont, NS and Carl Vroom of Bloomington, NS, the Beatons showcase Darrin’s fine flat picking talents.However, Darrin is well versed on a variety of stringed instruments including fiddle, mandolin and dobro. The Beatons will have you a tappin’ your toes and grinning from ear to ear. Two dance workshops, Irish Dance for Children (11 am) and Irish Dance for Adults (2 pm), will be given by Niamh Webster. Niamh received her T.C.R.G. (Teachers An Cumisiun Le Rinci Gaelacha) in Dublin, Ireland and has been teaching Irish dance for over 15 years. She competed as a Champion Irish Dancer for many years and qualified for the North American and World Championships. The other workshop, The Story of the Harp (10 am) will be given by Gilbert McInnis, of Sheffield Mills. Gilbert has been the musical director for Sheffield Mills’s Eagle Watch for the past three years. He has been building harps for the last 15 years and has played music throughout the Valley for audiences at Wolfville’s Night Kitchen and participated in this year’s first AMP festival. For registration information, please contact Gilbert @ 582-1603 (harp workshop) and Niamh Webster at 582-1786 (dance workshops).
