Shoe Cove Come Home Year Committee busy

It seems fall is getting closer every day, with schools all open across our fair province and by now students are starting to settle into routine, with their subjects and maybe even some homework. Best of luck to every student attending schools this year, whether it is their first year of school or their last in high school.

The Shoe Cove Come Home Year Committee (CHY) have been busy with more than one project in the planning stages. The plans are, if weather permits, a car wash on Friday Sept. 13 by Tracy Newbury's. Hamburgers, hotdogs, canned soda and bottle water will also be sold at the time. So bring your vehicle to be spruced up by the CHY members and have a snack while you wait, all in support of the Shoe Cove Come Home Year 2014.Shoe Cove Come Home Year Committee busy

On Thursday, Sept. 19 a soup and sandwich supper including dessert and tea or coffee is to take place at the community center beginning at 5:00 p.m. with local entertainment for the small admission. The CHY committee is soliciting dessert donations for the event, so contact any member of the committee if you have some time or sweets to donate.

Speaking of sweets, the last of the CHY fundraising chocolate bars are running out, so get yours today if you haven't already. The committee is so thankful of everyone who has already helped out. The first-ever Come Home Year is sure to be a grand time for everyone in Shoe Cove, thanks to all the support the committee has received so far.

Visitors from Springdale

For quite some time I have been in contact with Sharon of the Springdale 50-plus club. They wanted to go on one of their usual excursions and called me to see if we could get the French Bread oven up and going if their group came down for a ride around the area. Unfortunately we weren't available to have the oven set up for the Sept. 7 visit, but the UCW and some friends set up an afternoon snack at First United Basement where they could freshen up, relax and chat a while before moving on to La Scie where supper and entertainment were to take place.

About 50 people enjoyed a wonderful lunch of sandwiches, jam tarts and other sweets washing it down with tea or coffee. Some went for a walk towards the French Bread oven, including our MHA Kevin Pollard, his wife, and other friends. After a nice relaxing visit everyone boarded their bus and headed for La Scie where a jigs supper was waiting and some great entertainment for them all. Sorry we didn't get to enjoy this trip but I'm sure there will be another time with someone else! Too bad the French Bread oven wasn't fired up with some of the best bread ever baked. Next year our first ever Shoe Cove Come Home Year is to take place July 22 to 27, so maybe some of you will be back to visit some of the wonderful events that are in the planning stages now. Everyone is welcome to come and visit our tiny niche by the sea and take in some of the wonderful events sights and for sure many tasty foods. But for now be sure to come on back soon and see what else is new from the Shoe!
