Looking for a summer camp for your 10-18 year old? Wabun, a canoe tripping camp in northern Ontario, is one Lily and Finn Johnston (and their parents!) would strongly recommend. We've found it is a place where kids can unplug and be physically and socially challenged – and love it. Wabun has been guiding young people through the clean blue lakes and down fish-filled rivers in the Canadian North Woods since 1933. As the brochure states, "the children and young adults who leave home in June return in August more mature, with new friends, physically stronger, self-assured, and with a confidence that will serve them well through a lifetime of challenges." Please call us if you'd like more information (688-4715), or go to Wabun's website www.wabun.com/ . (P. S. - Wabun is less expensive than Chewonki or Kieve...) Rosita Moore (04/24)

Frontier Eurythmy Independent Training Course:
Update on the Shivelhood-Kartez Family: Jack, Winnie & Jason are so grateful to the many community members who have cooked them a meal, stopped by to help clean, visit with Winnie, or sent a thoughtful card. They are amazed at the outpouring of support they are receiving. Jack's surgery went well and he is in recovery, but still needs help with weekly chores & rides. Winnie's alert most days but tires easily and needs lots of rest. But she enjoys a brief, friendly visit, a chat or a short walk outdoors. If you have not yet had a chance to help, there is still a need for small meals, helping with daily cleaning & visiting with Winnie. If you can't access the website, Lotsa Helping Hands, simply contact Jack directly and let him know what you can do. I couldn't do the times listed on the website so I emailed Jack and he was very open and thankful that I could come and spend a few hours helping & walking with Winnie that fit into my schedule. thank you all

This summer I will be riding 270 miles from Boston to New York in three days.
I am riding to honor my friend Dr. Bruce Churchill and support the efforts to find an effective treatment for ALS. Over the last 15 years, Dr. Churchill has won a huge place in my heart. He has helped me overcome many challenges of my own. Throughout the years we have become good friends, sharing stories of our lives, adventures and families. As a doctor he always made me feel like I was his only patient. As a friend he’s always honest and positive. Just after my daughter was born Bruce was diagnosed with ALS. I just wanted to scream! How could something so devastating happen to one of the most amazing people I know? Since his diagnosis Dr. Churchill has continued to be positive and give his best efforts to everything he does. I feel selfish to be so heartbroken. I feel lucky to have shared his friendship. I have decided to take on a challenge of my own to help support the challenges he and so many others who suffer from ALS have been faced with . I hope this personal physical and emotional challenge and fundraising effort will help me make a slight difference. I will do my best to find my strength to finish the ride. I struggle to find the strength to see someone so special stolen away from this world. My minimal fundraising goal is $1800. If you know Dr. Bruce Churchill or anyone who has suffered from ALS I will whole heartedly appreciate any donation you can offer. Come ride if you’d like! I’d love the company. To donate:
