Hi. Our names are Fang (tan coloured husky pictured left) and Austin (black and white husky-husky/mix right) and we are both currently staying at the South Dundas Animal Control Pound. We are looking for forever homes. Both of us are estimated to be about two years old and we are both males. (Fang has been neutered, Austin has not.) Anyone interested in providing homes for either of these two beautiful dogs, should be prepared to handle a high energy dog. The Siberian Husky is a medium sized dog and is a working dog breed. They are very active and energetic, and if trained can make a great family pet. The Husky is affectionate with people but independent. Obedience training is recommended. Huskies tend to run and are excellent escape artists which could be why these two have landed at the South Dundas facility. Huskies need physical and mental stimulation on a daily basis. Many are used for recreational mushing and skijoring, and they absolutely love the activities. For more information on Fang and Austin, or to meet them please call Kevin Casselman at 613-543-2980
The Morrisburg BIA is prepared to sponsor an Antiquefest in the Morrisburg Plaza in July 2013.
Bill Ewing, president of the Morrisburg Business Improvement Area, informed South Dundas council of this intention at April 16. According to Ewing, the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce and volunteers from the Morrisburg and District Lions Club have agreed to assist in organizing the event.
A committee will be formed and to chose the location. One suggestion is the pedestrian walkway behind the clock tower in the Morrisburg Mall.
Several Municipality of South Dundas roads are scheduled for facelifts. Director of public works Chris Bazinet was given the go ahead to hire Duncor Enterprises Inc. to complete surface treatment on the following roads: Irish […]
Lisa Lewis wanted to do something to help the Froats family cope with their expenses while Brody remains in CHEO, so she organized what she thought would be a small pancake breakfast fundraiser.
The event, held Saturday at the Recreation Hall in Riverside Heights, raised $800 for the family.
Thanks to Riverside Recreation donating the use of the hall and the food for the event, the entire proceeds from the sale of the breakfasts will go to the Froats family. In addition to the 86 breakfasts sold, those who attended generously donated another $370.
“I wasn’t planning on so many people coming out, but I’m glad they did,” said Lewis. She was thrilled with the support and appreciative of the efforts of those who volunteered to help out including; Ann Lewis, Linda Robinson, Alice Pemberton, Madison DeJong, Melanie, Jeremy and Tyson Whitford, Carl and Gail Robinson and Terry Hamilton.
“It’s fantastic what Lisa has done here,” said Gail Robinson, who thanked Lisa and the volunteers on behalf of the family. “The community, everyone, has been so wonderful. I know Mark, Lisa, Brody and Brett are very appreciative.”
The funds are meant to help the family with expenses so that they can focus on their time together. Brody has been in CHEO since late last year as a result of complications of Prader-Willi Syndrome.
His father Mark remains at CHEO with him. Mark is a contractor who has been unable to work since Brody was admitted to hospital. Brody’s mother Lisa is battling cancer and finished her chemotherapy last week.
