Community coffee: church offers warm drinks and warm reception



Kate Aley

It is indisputably still cold outside, baby.  Éric Hébert-Daly, the new student minister at Quyon United Church, has a new idea to warm all of us up. 

On Monday 12, and on every Monday from now, Hébert-Daly will be opening the doors of the church at 1088 Clarendon Street in Quyon (next to the Post Office) between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. to offer warm drinks at no charge.

And he is bringing his own coffee machine from his home in Wakefield in order to serve espresso and lattes too. The weekly event has been created in order to draw local people to the church and provide a opportunity to relax and chat, to maybe ask some questions or even seek advice.

Bring your guitar, your colouring books or knitting and enjoy a new, warm community gathering place.

The Legend of "The Shawville Express"


I was born in Ottawa in 1925, the eldest child of Maye Horner and Frank Finnigan, both then aged twenty-four. The year before, my father, known then throughout the Ottawa Valley hockey circuit and later throughout the hockey world as "The Shawville Express," had signed his first National Hockey League contract for $1,800 per season with the Ottawa Senators. Bonuses from Frank Ahearn, owner of the Senators, brought my father's salary for that first year up to $3,400...
