    NEIGHBOURHOOD- Lyn Fleming Get Well wishes this month to the following Islanders: KarenFleming, Margaret Maloney, Helen Lamb, Laurene Kilpatrick andEmily Tugwell. Wishes for speedy recoveries to all. Our condolences this month to Ann Albertan and familyfollowing the recent passing of Anns mom. Sympathy also to Elizabeth Barr and her husband Steven Perryand family following the sudden loss of Stevens son, in a caraccident. Congratulations to Connie Fabian and Josh Free who weremarried on a warm July afternoon, on the lawn at Connies moms(Bonnie Baker) on Front Rd. A reception followed at theCommunity Centre. Brian and Eva Little and family spent a week at the beach inNorth Carolina. Jim, Lynann and Ben Whitton headed to western Canada andthen south of the border for a family reunion. Canadas 1st astronaut in space, Marc Garneau and his wifePam, and their 2 sons, recently spent a couple of days on theIsland visiting friends Dick and Puddy Dodds. Puddy, Pam and

    the boys spent a day with Doug and Gayla Williamson on theirSouth Shore farm, while Dick and Marc checked out the local golfcourses. Marc has made 3 trips into space and until recently,wasthe president of the Canadian Space Agency. St. Pauls annual (I believe its the 58th) Garden Party was held thelast Saturday in July. Lots of good food, good bargains and a rafflewere some of the days highlights. It seems a record number of Islanders and visitors, young andold, enjoyed the Amherst Island Recreation Associations annualCanada Day celebrations with the evening parade, games and prizesfor the kids, entertainment, hotdogs, and the PCWs StrawberrySocial. A quick, light rain shower preceded the spectacular fireworksdisplay! This years event was covered live by CJAI radiopersonalities, Brian Little and Terry Culbert. It seems the late spring and early summer weather was perfect fora bumper crop of hay for Island farmers. Some have reported almostdouble their usual crop. The heat and humidity has now set in andthe rain just seems to pass to the north or south of the Island. Lawns, gardens and fields are starting to dry out and turn brown. The public dock behind the museum is a popular spot for the kids( and parents) for swimming these days.
