Summerfest may be the 29th, but this year it started on the 28th at the General Store
as Bob Smith hosted one of his “Kruze Nites” and included a ‘Show & Shine’
of the Soap Boxes that will be taking part in tomorrow’s Soap Box Derby.

Saturday morning saw at relaxed start to Summerfest with activities
starting at 11:00 a.m. with the Bike Parade from the Community
Centre to the General Store. Someone with the Fire Department
misinformed Constable Adam Belanger of the O.P.P. that it was
a bike race, so when he led off the procession with siren wailing,
it left those walking way behind.

The ‘MIGHTY’ Stokes Bay River, looking downstream
at the bridge on
Stokes Bay Road.

And upstream is about the same.
When seeing the river this dry, it is hard to imagine... 100-0009_IMG_3.JPG

“THIS!”
This is when it can be called the ‘MIGHTY’ Stokes Bay River, during Spring run-off!
Back at the Community Centre, activities are geting into full swing.

Medical Emergency
Bob Zavitz said, “I’ve just done something very stupid” as he was trying to pry apart some frozen hamburgers (with a sharp knife). On closer examination it was obvious that the slight nick that Bob had given himself was not-so-slight and it was off to the hospital. On the way to the hospital, Bob seemed to imply that he was more afraid for his life than he was of bleeding to death (I wonder why, I was only slightly over the speed limit). Safely at the hospital, the incomparable Dr. Dave Thompson was on call and told Bob that he had two options, Dr. Dave could either finish what Bob started or he could stitch him back together, and Bob wisely choose the latter. With no tendon damage, Bob was back to work in the kitchen within two hours with strict orders to stay away from sharp knives.
