Midland Lawn Bowling Club staged its first fun day of the season this past Saturday. Members played two games and then tucked into a pot luck supper. There was a real cross section of bowlers from new comers to long timers. One could easy see those who participated in the fun day enjoyed the event as they coped with the heat. It has been said the Midland clubs boasts one of the top greens in the nation.
Meanwhile, Sunday, members of St. Paul’s United Church in Midland held a church picnic with a twist. Instead of staging it in the great outdoors, the fun filled event was conducted in the King Street church’s grand hall much to the delight of all who attended in the pot luck following morning service.
And speaking of churches some 60 members of Grace United Church in Barrie spent the weekend at near by Camp Simpresca kicking off the camping season on Georgian Bay. For the folks from Grace this has been an annual event for years.
Last but not least, St. Mark’s Anglican Lutheran Church has a new pastor who has been well received and the bells down the street at St. Margaret’s Roman Catholic Church have now been repaired having gone silent for weeks following a computer glitch. Finding a church bell fixer upper was not an easy task thus the delay bringing the eight bells back on line. So all is well between Third Street and Church Lane and that is good.
