Rally teams: start your engines and adjust your costumes.

Last Saturday's 29th annual Quyon Lionettes car rally fundraising event was a huge success with 54 teams participating for prizes, trophies and the sheer glory of victory. Departing the Beach Barn in five minute increments, the drivers followed a series of directions and clues to amass the greatest amount of points to win the day. Needless to say, more points were gained via elaborate costumes for both humans and vehicles. Following the theme of 'movie stars', as chosen by last years' winners, participants went all out with the fancy dress.

A hot supper back at the Barn concluded the day. This years' winners were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in their eight-seated machine.

Good luck following this Yellow Brick Road...

All funds from the event go towards supporting the Lionettes' work in the community, including beautification projects, donations to the town's two schools and emergency help for those experiencing financial difficulty and property loss.

On Monday December 4, a serious accident was caused by some kind of slippery fluid being splashed all over the highway in Luskville. Many people commented on the unexpectedly deep puddles, the effort it took to stay on the road and the horrible stink of it. There was so much, a snow plow was called in to strip it off the road. What was that stuff? Where did it come from? I managed to find someone to talk to from the MTQ within two days. But as yet, my attempts to get information about this incident from the MRC des Collines police have been unproductive.

Once more the Quyon Lions' Club Santa Claus Parade, held Saturday December 9, was a great success. Warmly-dressed families lined the streets to enjoy the decorated floats, horses and of course, St. Nick himself. As the Beach Barn is conspicuously absent this year, the parade's normal route was reversed, with participants gathering at the Ste. Marie's Catholic church parking lot and walking down the hill to the intersection with Clarendon. From there, the parade continued to the Onslow Elementary School gym where hot food and drinks were served as kids lined up to speak to Santa about a few important matters.

Pools of what appeared to be septic waste or liquid animal manure were at least two or three meters in length and possibly 4 cm in depth, according to witnesses.
