2023 Oktoberfest!

More than 60 people attended Oktoberfest on Friday to enjoy some social time with friends & a delicious meal consisting of sausages, salads & desserts. Our hosts Deb Hinz, Mary Anne Henry, Dave Taylor , Barb & Ken Weido made sure that everything was perfect for our members. Thank You for Vollunteering to organize this event.

Our next get together is on Oct. 13th . Plan to be there & see how lucky your are? It is the Huron Woods version of a Poker Run called a “Poker Tour.” More details will be following in the next few days.

Guided Nature Walk

Guided Nature Walk — Sunday, October 1, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. Join Ian Jean, Forestry and Land Stewardship Specialist at the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority, for a guided nature walk. Learn about the Carolinian forest of Southcott Pines and surrounding areas — and how to protect our Oak Savanna. And yes, we’ll learn more about oak wilt! Meet at the Southcott Pines Clubhouse parking lot (10246 Lakeview Ave).

School Desks For Free!

We had a crew cleaning out the Exeter warehouse following the loading of 2 containers to Africa a couple weeks ago. We are preparing for the winter with less available space than in past.

We have quite a number of teacher desks which are too bulky to ship and must go. there are several which are 30X48 and 30X60 wooden units like you will remember from your school days. There are some smaller desk and rolling tables as well as one 30X72 desk with return “L” shape. some of them are good others are rough but could be sued as work tables or in a garage.

Perhaps you have a home for one of these or know someone who does. Think about students or grandchildren who could use one. I have attached some pictures or they can be seen at the Exeter warehouse and we can arrange for you to view them.

Please help us find homes for these desks so we don’t have to destroy them.

Please contact Barb Smits 519-860-9967

Congratulations to Team Huron Pines!

We surpassed our goal and collected over $5,300 to support the fight against cancer. 

The weather was perfect, as over 40 people, walked, jogged or cycled their way throughout our neighbourhoods. Many returned after their exercise to share a bbq lunch, watermelon, home baking and social time on the deck. We had 3 Terry Fox shirts given out as draw prizes this year… (Yeah to Deana, Barbara, and Rosemary ) and our local McDonalds and DQ provided coupons for Blizzards and fries!

This is our best effort yet! Thank you for your generosity to a cause that impacts all our families. Thank you for your donations on line, for your cheques and cash donated at the event plus your contributions to our lunch. A special thank you to Leigh and her family for providing the lunch, and Barbara and Deana for the tasty baking!

                             Please come out and join us next year…..Terry says ‘Thank you!’
