Just when you think that your world is pretty routine ... Stuff Happens!! In our case the “stuff” happened to be the Canada Post labour dispute. When faced with the uncertainty of whether we could get our publications delivered in a timely manner, the most prudent business decision would have been to immediately lay off everyone and wait for the dispute to be resolved. While we wouldn’t make any money during that time, neither would we lose a whole bunch of money. However, there were any number of other considerations to take into account ... fairness to our staff, service to our business customers and of course you, our readers. You may in fact be getting this issue of our publications at the same time that you get the previous issue. You see, we actually delivered the Hampton and Sussex publications to Canada Post on schedule, but they apparently got “Lost” and before they were “Found” Canada Post initiated the employee lock out. And there they were, some 18,000 publications, the bulk of them trapped in a publishers’ worst nightmare. All of the work and expense to produce them had been incurred, but without delivery we could end up without a single cent of revenue. The missus wasn’t sleeping very well and even started counting up the change in a tin can I throw the occasional dime or quarter into. It certainly wouldn’t take a long strike to put a major dent in my plans for another tractor. With the Valley Viewer and Westides, we again made every effort to produce and print the publications but this time we were unable to even get them through the doors. “Stuff Happens”. So what lessons have we learned??? Well, certainly it would be nice to do without Canada Post!! But, the quality of delivery, right to your mailbox, is a key part of our quality and what differentiates us from the “others”!! A real alternative possibility exists!! The Corporate Jet!!! He just loves to carry stuff around in his mouth!! Averaging 20,000 deliveries weekly would certainly do wonders for his figure, although he is looking pretty slim right now. You would never find a friendlier delivery person and if you offered up a little dog bone or two in exchange for your publication you might just discover that the deliveries are only minutes apart. Darn!! I can see it now 20,000 publications delivered to ten houses and in less than two hours!!! Lesson number two … do everything exactly the same!! Caring for staff, advertisers and readers is never a cheap solution to running a business, but it is the right one!! 800

“… art is a community effort - a small but select community living in a spiritualized world…” - Allen Ginsberg, American poet The active and ongoing contribution of artists to the fabric of Hampton is one of the distinctive features of our town that makes it special. Since the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership was formed about six years ago, our mission has been consistently supported by the arts community. It began with the late John Murphy; his talents as a painter, sculptor, musician, and actor were a unique contribution to our efforts to alleviate the devastating impact of HIV/AIDS in Piggs Peak, Swaziland. He was also one of the first Hamptonians to travel to Piggs Peak to help foster relationships and assist our efforts there. Part of his legacy is the mural on the side of a school building that will serve as an ongoing testament to our relationship with Fundukuwela High School. Although John is no longer with us, his innate kindness and compassion for his fellow humans continues to inspire all of us – artists and non-artists alike. Partnership Committee member, Sue Hooper, describes “Art for Africa”, an inspired effort by Hampton artists to raise funds to help our neighbours in Piggs Peak. “With the theme of nature, our beautiful world, earth, sky, plants, people and animals, eight local artists: George Fry; Fred Harrison; Kathy and Sue Hooper; Pat Mercer; Helga Lobb; Ed Coleman; and Amy Ash will do an acrylic painting on watercolor paper, each piece up to 15” by 22”. Some will paint, trees, cityscapes, hills, people, sky… the finished work will then be cut up and spread to create a mosaic, but with “follow through” of design, and mounted onto a large canvas. We have a month to complete the painting with our mosaic assembly party on Saturday, July 9th at 10:00am.” “The opportunities for buying raffle tickets and supporting


Piggs Peak will start with Bloomin’ Artists July 23rd & 24th at the River Center in Hampton; a summer garden party is August 14th at Bev Harrison’s and there is a Concert by the Creek also held in August.” This exciting project by some of the most renowned artists in the area is sure to be a seminal creation – a work of art representing the artistic and altruistic soul of Hampton. Sue tells us that each artist will be sending two to three images as they create their individual piece so we hope to follow the creative process and share this with the community. Be sure to take the opportunity to purchase tickets at the venues mentioned above. Stay tuned for more specifics about these upcoming summer events. If you would like further information about this project, about the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership, or if you would like to support our ongoing efforts to help those suffering from the scourge of HIV/AIDS in our partner community, please visit our website www.hamptonpiggspeak.ca or contact me, Mark Bettle, at 832-0003. 110

Our next big effort is to sell the tickets to the “Elvis’ concert on September 24th. We know you will enjoy the concert. Ask any member of the Hampton Rotary Club to sell you a ticket or two or more. Since our last update we have had some more interesting presentations. One of them was done by Joe Roy, our current inbound student from Australia. We were shown pictures of his family, home and community as well as information about some of the crops that are grown in his state and some of the industries there. He is looking forward to participating in Rotary’s Cross Canada trip for Rotary exchange students. 40 students plus chaperones will travel as far as Victoria taking in Canada Day in Ottawa, the Calgary stampede, lobster fishing in PEI. and a whole lot more. He leaves next week for about a month of travelling. That’s Rotary. 108

Representatives of the Joshua Group board of directors receive a donation from The Men of Fundy barbershop chorus. The Joshua Group is an organization, founded by Bobby Hayes, dedicated to helping children “at risk” in the Greater Saint John area. After a presentation at a chapter meeting, the barbershoppers felt that the work of The Joshua Group was so meaningful and important, that they would wholeheartedly support the organization and make The Joshua Group their “charity of choice”. In addition to this initial donation of $500, a portion of all future fund raising efforts by the Men of Fundy will be donated to The Joshua Group. The Men of Fundy’s previous charity work of supplying hearing aids to needy children will continue as requests come in. 818

In 1994, after having been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in the late 80’s, Tanya Henderson organized the first annual Leah MacGowan Curling Bonspiel to raise funds and awareness for MS. Leah, a resident of Hampton and long time educator, was also an MS sufferer and, following her death in 1995, the Bonspiel was renamed the Leah MacGowan Memorial Curl for MS Bonspiel. That first year saw 18 teams register, raising $4,000. The Hampton Curling Club donated the rink space and the players luncheon was prepared by Tanya and a friend. In the years following Holly’s Restaurant has provided the delicious soup as well as family and friends chipping in for rolls and dessert. 2010 was a record year raising $7,700. This marked the 17th annual event which has raised $75,000 over its tenure. The event not only raises funds and awareness of MS, but also serves as an opportunity to remember Leah, someone very dear to the hearts of many in Hampton. Family members and friends of Leah take part as well as friends and family of Tanya. The community has been supportive over the years with donations of money, food and prizes. Tanya has remained as the organizer and, as a result, was recognized on March 26th. The President’s Award recognizes the valuable contribution of persons with MS within the MS Society. Past winners of this award have contributed to the enhancement and influence of persons with MS and have created greater public awareness of the importance of active involvement of persons with MS. For a long-term commitment to having fun while raising funds to support programs and services for people living with MS, Tanya was presented with the 2011 President’s Award for the MS Atlantic Division at a ceremony in Halifax. 409

A short while ago, Kennebecasis Branch #58 of the Royal Canadian Legion issued a challenge to NB Legion Branches to match or exceed their donation of $1000 to a needy veteran in the Saint George area who had lost much of his possessions during the December 2010 floods in that area. It is gratifying to note that several Legion Branches in Southern NB have responded to the challenge/call to action with donations that exceed $5000 in total. This includes Br #58 Kennebecasis, Br #69 Lancaster, Br #71 Gagetown, Br #62 Peninsula, Br #28 Hampton, and Br #40 St. George. The veteran’s needs are great and the generous donations of other Legions and businesses would surely be most welcome. Branch #58 re-issues the challenge to match or exceed our donation of $1000 to this veteran. To make a donation, kindly contact Br #58 Service Officer at 847-5991. L.W.F.

It’s been 50 years since the current building of the New Canaan United Baptist Church on Rte. 112 was built. Many children, and adults too, came to Sunday School in this little country church over those years. They have since been scattered from coast to coast of Canada, and beyond. This summer we are planning to hold a Sunday School Reunion on Saturday, July 23rd and are hoping that many of our former Sunday School members, their families and friends can join us in celebration. We are looking forward to a time of reconnecting with old friends, getting reacquainted and getting updated on their lives. We are planning to have a Registration and Meet & Greet from 2:30-4:30pm, to give folks time to meet and chat with old friends. There will be children’s activities for those who have young families. Pony rides (all ages) and an inflatable bouncer (up to age 12) will be part of the fun, weather permitting. At 4:30pm we’ll be sharing a Picnic Supper. Please bring something to share for a cold lunch (for example, salads, sandwiches, veggies, chips, cheese, fruit, sweets, etc). Please bring any perishable food in a cooler and keep it in the cooler until lunch time. After the meal we’ll all gather in the sanctuary (around 5:30pm) for an old fashioned Sunday School opening, joining in singing some of the old favourites. We’ll also have a Bible story, puppets and some music and memories. If you have any memories of your days in Sunday School, we’d love to hear them. We’ll finish up the evening with coffee and desserts after the program. We hope anyone who had any connection to New Canaan will be able to come out and make our day complete. If you ever attended New Canaan Sunday School and are on Facebook you can search for “New Canaan United Baptist Sunday School” and ask to join our group for updates.

The glorious German Iris are almost at the end of their blooming period and before the color fades away it’s a wise practice to take a permanent marker and write the color and height on one of those lovely spear like leaves, it’s a great help when one moves to the next essential stage of caring for these lovelies. When a clump of Iris has been in the same spot for five or more years they are in danger of a slow demise, the rhizomes from which the plant derives nourishment begin to grow on top of each other and the whole show usually becomes a breeding ground for the detestable Iris borers, slugs and earwigs. At this stage it is important to dig the whole clump up; separate the individual units; clean out every morsel of weed and play at surgeon. Though a sharp knife or secateurs might be more readily available than a scalpel this is definitely ‘operation time’. Every rhizome needs to be cut back until the sliced part is pure white, if there is evidence of the dreaded borer, ugly little beast it is too, it needs to be cut in two, all diseased parts are best burned rather than composted unless you are sure that a decent level of heat is going to be produced in the process. I would hazard that it’s safe to put it out for the Crane Mountain chaps. The next stage is the fun part, you now have more plants than you can possibly use, so, having carefully marked them, you can use what you need, then be generous with your neighbours and present them with first class plant in the color range that suits their preference. To plant successfully one needs to make a little inverted V in the soil, park the rhizome on top of the peak and drape the roots down in the valley, covering with the excavated soil, it is essential to leave that woody looking rhizome open to the sun and to have them all facing in the same direction. Iris do not need a great deal of food but will appreciate a mix of compost with a wee pinch of bone or blood meal to help set a good root system. It helps the plant to withstand all this invasive surgery if you take a pair of large scissors and reduce the leaves to 6” or 8” creating a fan like foliage that will soon be producing new leaves, we may be needing fans if the glorious sunny weather continues!!! Enjoy the bounty. 805

Communities in Bloom has had such a terrific response from local businesses donating prizes that we are going to extend our “It’s Time to Boast” Garden of the Week promotion right through the summer. We have many incredible gardens nominated and this will give us time to acknowledge even more of these hardworking and creative gardeners. The most recent prize donations are from Hampton Home Hardware, Brunswick Nurseries, and The Hampton Pharmasave. Thank you! The June 14th “Garden of the Week“ was Steve and Reni Kelly’s garden at 226 Main Street. The nominator said it best in his e-mail nomination; “five years of hard work have paid off into a beautiful looking garden and landscape. The garden has many perennials and also many annuals. Their beautiful garden also features custom made birdhouses. Every weekend and every weekday Steve and Reni spend most of their day tending to their gardens. Their house at 226 Main Street is quite possibly one of the nicest yards in town! I feel that they deserve the dedication of Garden of The Week, for all of the hard work, year after year that they do to make their residence look beautiful! Everyday, residents must drive by and love the hard work of 226 Main Street.” The June 21st “Garden of the Week” was Christa and Jason Holmes’ garden at 517 Kennebecasis River Road. They are new homeowners and their nominator said that they started enhancing their property right away. They started with a bed in the front of the house along the foundation last spring. This spring they have added three more beds in the front lawn plus a new tree. Their pride of ownership shows!


Your nomination doesn’t have to be this detailed but it is nice to read some of the glowing nominations. Hampton gardeners can be assured that there hard work and creativity is noticed!

First, thank you to the wonderful woman in the red car who has been spotted at least twice, diligently weeding a rose bed. By the time I have gotten back to thank you, you have disappeared. Thank you! As many of you have noticed, the rose beds on Main Street have seen better days. We have lost track of most of our volunteers who had adopted beds in the past. We appreciate those who have stuck with us, including the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, who continue to weed and mulch the very large rose garden at the High School end of the beds. Thank you! But we desperately need more volunteers. The Communities in Bloom committee members and friends have been pulling weeds and mulching the beds but we really do need help. If you have adopted a bed in the past and would like to renew your relationship with those rose bushes you left behind, or if you and your family or community group would like to adopt a bed we would be ever so grateful. If we can only get the beds weeded and mulched the rose beds should take care of themselves again. Please call Sue or Bruce at 832 4056 or e-mail us at HamptonCommunitiesinBloom@live.ca. Communities in Bloom will happily provide mulch if you will provide some people power to remove the weeds. 134

Thank goodness for summer finally arriving. I really did not mind the old-fashioned winter we had, with lots and lots and lots of snow. The snowshoes got lots of use and I could then come in and curl up by the woodstove with a good book and not feel in the least bit guilty. But the so-called Spring, that was another thing altogether. The occasional nice day was invariably in the middle of the week when I was working, and the weekends were cold and wet almost without fail. Yuck! It may not be super fabulous weather as yet, but it is much improved. I can finally cart the last of my winter clothes to the basement closet and once more enjoy summer skirts and dresses. To add to the fun, one of our daughters was just married, so of course I wanted a new dress. I knew exactly what I wanted too. Finding it, however, was more problematic that I expected. Michael is thankful I did not have more notice of the wedding than I did, as I was out looking each week and had brought home about six dresses by the end of it. I never did find the one I envisioned, and in fact it was not until I was actually dressing for the wedding that I decided which one I was going to wear. The wedding was beautiful, the ceremony unique and the food and conversation were warm and relaxed. Mikie even managed to get off the tractor for a few hours and cleaned up quite nicely. Unfortunately to counterbalance the good news, we have also had to contend with the Canada Post strike. I know for a lot of people having the post office shut down has been a minor inconvenience rather than a big pain in the you-know-what, but for us it has been a major headache. Thank you to our advertisers, our staff and our readers for hanging in there and getting through this with a smile. You guys are great! “A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.” ~ James Dent. 801
