A Great ‘House Concert’ at the Old Town Hall
WEDNESDAY NIGHT’S ‘The Mountains and the Trees’
concert looks to be the start of something truly wonderful. As
reported in our April 11th issue (# 890) Wednesday’s concert
is the first of what will hopefully become a
series of ‘House Concerts’ by talented musical
acts who are ‘Just Passing Through.’
every note that his mellow guitar and ukulele stylings evoked,
along with his harmonica self-accompaniment, not to
mention his “horn section”, which consisted of his own voice.
We think that the Events Committee is
definitely on to a good idea!
As the 7:30 pm start time for the concert drew
near, the organizers had set out four rows of
seats, hoping that there would be enough of a
turnout to make the concert worth everyone’s
trouble – including the featured performer
Jon Janes (aka The Mountains and The
Trees). They needn’t have worried. By 7:30,
several more rows were needed, then even
more rows, with people still arriving after 8
pm. All in all, over 50 people turned up, and
nobody was disappointed.
Jon treated us to a wonderful sampling of his
superbly poignant and poetic music, all delivered in a soft, almost-hypnotic voice that kept
everyone tuned in to every turn of phrase and

a chance to make some new friends and fans of
his music, before moving on to his next
performance the following evening in Thunder
And a few of us who hadn’t yet left got to
witness the coming together of two Island Clippings cover stories! Following the concert, Jon
stayed to mingle and chat with his audience,
one of whom was guitar maker Zachary
Schryer-Lefebvre, who we featured in the
following week’s issue (# 891, April 18th).
Soon, Jon was trying out Zach’s ‘Song Sparrow’
guitar (which he approvingly gave very high
marks), which led to the two musicians playing
together, sitting on the edge of the stage, yet off
in a world all their own.
We’re looking forward to the next ‘House
Concert’ … although Jon “The Mountains and
the Trees” Janes will be a hard act to follow!

I received a call from the principal of our Public School. He
said he thought it would benefit students to begin volunteering as early as grades 7 & 8. He asked if I would be
interested in having his students provide volunteer help at
our upcoming Maple Syrup Festival. Of course I said that
would be wonderful and he proceeded to send notification
home to parents to see if they would be interested in letting
their children volunteer.

On Friday, he called me to advise that he had a list of
students interested in volunteering. Now remember, they are
too young to be working on their required volunteer hours.
On Saturday, April 13th, 5 students arrived at the Legion and
were willing to do whatever was asked of them. They collectively put in 30 hours of volunteering. At the end of the day,
3 of them approached me and asked if they could come back

They were hard working and tackled any job required. The

of their children.

Trail Permits
It is a very costly venture to maintain the trails for snowmachines. Chainsaws, brushing equipment, lumber for bridges,
culverts to drain wet spots, repairs to the groomer and fuel to
run the equipment requires cash. Where does the cash come
from? The sale of Trail Permits!
On many occasions this past winter, I have seen perhaps 2
permits on 10 machines. Due to a lack of funding, the

Voyageurs Snowmobile Club will, in all probability, have to
close next season. To all you sledders who happily ‘beat the
system’, you have no reason to complain next winter about
the lack of trails.
Another issue is the ATV riders. It is indeed fun to ride the
trails in summer, especially when no permits are required. A
major problem is that you continue to ride through spring
fed mud holes and these holes get bigger and deeper to such a
point that the groomer cannot get through. The holes must
be bypassed, which sometimes requires the construction of a
new trail, which is costly.
If there are no groomed trails next winter and trees, etc. have
fallen across the trail in summer, just ask yourselves what
One last thing to ponder: if the trails are closed permanently,
all signs, bridges. culverts, etc. have to be removed.

An Un-Merry Christmas
By Jerry Voll
WE HAD NEVER EXPERIENCED anyone taking offence at
the singing of Christmas carols. Indifference occasionally,
mocking once or twice, but not offense. My wife and I looked
forward each year to joining a group of friends for a night of
door-to-door caroling.
Imagine our shock, then, on receiving a letter from a neighbour riled that we had come uninvited to her doorstep and
sung several carols. We had meant no harm. Our only intent
had been to spread a little Christmas goodwill around the
neighbourhood. But for this neighbour it brought no cheer at
all. Judging by her note, we had pretty much spoiled things
for her.
Screwing up our courage, my wife and I phoned her and
asked if we could pay her a visit. We mentioned her note to us
and told her we were eager to make amends. She listened,
then gave us her
address and invited
us for a cup of tea.
“We would appreciate that. We certainly didn’t mean to
offend you.”
“No, I’m sure you didn’t. And that’s one of the reasons I didn’t
go to the door while you were singing and ask you to leave. “It
was on a Christmas Eve when a drunk drove his car into my
mother and two of my daughters as they walked along the
hedgerow at the side of our road.”
Dr. Lupien is no stranger to the pressures of Emergency medicine.
Although he has practiced family
medicine for over 30 years, he has
specialized in Emergency medicine for
most of his career. Originally from
Montreal, he served for the past 8 years
as a community physician in the

Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a 10 inch cast iron skillet with oil
and set aside. Stir all dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Add butter to prepared skillet and put in oven to heat skillet
and melt butter. Don’t let the butter burn.
Whisk wet ingredients together. With as few strokes as
possible, (this is important) add dry ingredients to wet. Pour
batter into skillet once the butter has melted. Bake the cornbread 25 to 30 minutes. Serve hot in wedges from the pan.
Can use a Pyrex pan if you don't have a cast iron skillet. Serve
with soup for a nutritious, tasty and filling meal.

army of volunteers: prepping, setting up, baking, cooking and
cleaning up are greatly appreciated.
Books, “Sophie the Giraffe”, Sippy cups,
feeding dishes, puppets and interactive toys
Coffee and tea was provided by Island Coffee Roasters. The
sheer number of pots of coffee and tea made are surely an
indication of a superb product.
