Thank you students and teachers and Mr Campbell for a thoughtful and inspiring service this morning. The stories and poems by the Grades 5 & 6 students caused us to stop and take a moment to appreciate the compassion and intelligence of the senior students . The music by the choirs also sent messages of love and remembrance.
On Sunday, September 30, Harry Adrain was inducted into the Ottawa Valley Country Music Hall of Fame! This is well deserved recognition for one our Westport Native Sons. And last night, I had the opportunity to represent Council and the Village to make a presentation to Harry at a party being held in his honour.
At this event, which was held at the Legion in Perth, I also saw first hand what being a member of the “ANT” family means – it means there are a whole lot of brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles and on and on who love spending time with each other. Lucky people!
Congratulations again Harry.
What an exceptional season of flowers in the Village. As I walked the dogs this morning and noted that the hanging baskets and flower boxes have been removed, it was even more evident how magnificent they were this year. The volunteers of Westport in Bloom tend the plants and municipal gardens with such care and attention throughout the summer that people are simply inspired! The second year of the new banners continue to add the realism of our young people, ensuring their strong presence in the Village.
Thank you for all your hard work. It is appreciated by all of us who live, work and visit the Village of Westport.
