Oldest cars

The two oldest cars in the first MVCCN show were a 1916 Ford MT Touring car in glossy black entered by Steve and Marilyn Pape of Trenton, and Madoc resident Maurice Goulagh's classic 1930 Ford Model A finished with lime green spokes.

Drunk goggles

Students were invited to wear goggles that simulated varying degrees of drunkenness while operating a vehicle in a video. “It was wild,” said Grade 12 student Stewart Battman. “I'm definitely not drinking and driving, [it's] not worth it.”

ATV tickets

Madoc Lions Club President Tom Simpson, along with Lions Ken and Kevan Doucette will be at the Madoc car shows this summer raising funds for the new Trinity park, and selling tickets on an ATV to buy an accessible swing for Centre Hastings Park.

Youth winner

Grace West of Cobourg won the Youth category in the 4th Annual Warkworth Lilac Festival juried photo show for her image “Celebration at Dawn,” on the left. She celebrated the win with her grandfather Harold DeKleer.

Cancer survivor

Judy Frey has been cancer-free since having a mastectomy eight years ago after a small tumour was detected during a routine mammogram. She will be taking part in her eighth Relay for Life in Trent Hills when it's held June 11 in the Hastings Field House. “We're looking forward to another great night of fighting back against cancer,” as well as “showcasing ... a gem in the Hastings community,” said community fundraising specialist for the Canadian Cancer Society Emily Vassiliadis.

Melodies at the Mill

Shawn Nelson will open the 17th season of Melodies at the Mill June 15. The summer-long series is hosted by the Campbellford Lions and Campbellford Lionesses and co-chaired by the clubs' Fred Lee and Jane Peters. Nelson toured Canada for years with bands before going solo in the late 1990s, playing Legions. Last year was his first time as an act in the Melodies program. “It was great,” he said, playing “good ole country and rock 'n' roll” to a “very attentive audience.”
