Norma’s October Poem No, we didn't miss a season But suddenly it's fall we just want to have a reason to stuff our parasol sometimes we welcome autumn when we've suffered too much heat (whew!!) can't get my mind around coloured leaves when campfires were incomplete So our Canadian Thanksgiving is on the 10th this year we hope to see our families, a thought that's most sincere shortened nights will be the theme kids dressed up for trick or treat raking leaves or more preserving time plus finishing promises we didn't keep nonetheless October's here: the hunters grab their gear and head for nature's precious woodlands trailing a white-tailed deer.   ...Norma Dixon (The Villa 129) FHCA Scholarship Winner Congratulations to Shannon Roesler who was named winner of the Fitzroy Harbour Community Association post-secondary scholarship for 2011.
