Minesing Moments by Lorrie Norwood
Happy Thursday readers! I hope you have all been enjoying the beautiful weather that August has been delivering to us. It is nice to have the humidity gone, the days are much more bearable that’s for sure.
Since the last article I wrote about pickle ball being held at the pavilion, Tuesdays do not seem to be working so it will be not proceeding on Tuesdays until further notice. Players will continue to play on Wednesday mornings and Thursday evenings as long as there are enough players for games. If you are still interested in learning to play Pickle Ball, feel free to come out and give it a try, they would love to have more players join. If you would like to reach out to someone who plays or for more information, feel free to contact Terry at email@example.com
It has been good to see the yellow signs along George Johnson Road asking drivers to “slow down”. I am not sure how well they are working but it’s certainly a good reminder for drivers going through our village. The traffic seems to have increased over the last several weeks with travellers going to the beach. Please be patient and drive safely on your travels.
The local baseball diamonds are being used again and it’s great to see. If you are looking for something to do during the week, come out and watch some of our local youth play ball. As an adult who grew up playing baseball locally it was always great to see neighbours in the stands rooting for the players. If you are interested in attending games the schedule can be found at https://gbmsl.ca/Schedule/
Labour Day Ball Tournament, September 2-4 Minesing Recreation Commitee will be hosting the Annual Labour Day Slo-Pitch tournament that had been put on hold for a couple of years. There are two more teams needed so if you have some friends, family or neighbours that want to put in a mixed team to participate in this fun filled recreational tournament, please reach out to Wanda at 705-725-6517 at your earliest opportunity. The organizers are also looking for volunteers to help out with various tasks over the weekend. It’s a great way for students to get their community hours, reach out to Wanda to sign up. There will be a dance Friday night with a DJ, beer gardens, fun games and the Anglers and Hunters will be providing food this year. Come out for a great time and support the community.
Until next time, “Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.” John Muir
