MEMORIAL TOURNEY SUPPORTS MINOR HOCKEY -   Parents of the late Ian Picard, George and Erla Picard (middle), accompanied by event organizer Virgil Dayment and players Jack Lapierre (CNL Fire Team – left) and Chris Belanger (CNL Guard Team), prepare to drop the puck during the annual Ian Picard Memorial Emergency Services Hockey Tourney, held January 11 at the Upper Pontiac Sports Complex in L'Isle-aux-Allumettes. Six teams registered for the tournament, which raised funds for the local minor hockey league (total not calculated as of press time). Ian Picard, a former Chichester resident and CNL fire fighter, passed away in 2012 at age 37.


FARMERS BONSPIEL – The 39th annual Farmers Bonspiel was held at the Shawville Curling Club, January 5. Always the first bonspiel in Shawville after the New Year, a group of farmers started the event in 1980 as a fun way to get away from the farm and socialize with friends and other community members. “The event has changed over the years, mostly in terms of size. We don't have as many farmers as we did in the 80s when we used to have up to 24 teams. Now anyone can participate and we reduced the event to one day with twelve teams,” said
organizer Eric Smith. The bonspiel always raises funds for both the Curling Club and another charity; this year’s recipient is the local food bank.


SLAUGHTERHOUSE GRAND OPENING – The Pontiac Slaughterhouse in Shawville held a grand opening, January 14, where the four owners, local farmers, elected officials, and everyone who helped in making the project a reality participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony. The business began operating in November 2018 and now has eleven full-time employees, including Director General Shannon Drummond who was hired last week. “Things have been going well since start-up and we are getting most of the initial glitches straightened out,” said owner Alain Lauzon. All four owners were on site to give a short tour of the facility and explain the operation.
