Today, Wednesday October 18th, the Quyon Community Centre, affectionately (and occasionally not-so-affectionately) dubbed the Beach Barn, was demolished.

Crunch. I hope those concrete lions were salvaged.

Mash. Turns out it's as easy as that.

Blam. Recognize anything?

Hey! Wait! There's half my mural from the first Savour the Pontiac event in Quyon-----------! Oh well, too late now.

The material was trucked away in a series of giant bins, reportedly headed to the Pontiac Sorting Centre in Litchfield. 

Sincere thanks to you, Beach Barn: you did incredibly well for a very long time, considering that you were never meant to be more than a large shed.

Quyon's new Community Center. Stay tuned.

Two months ago, Ottawa high-school teacher Julia Brown* was a healthy woman enjoying a summer day at a riverside cottage. Yet a bite from a tick nearly took her life. But it was not Lyme disease; it was something worse. Brown and her family were visiting a friends’ cottage on the waterfront in the south of Luskville, along Ch. Pins on Black Bay in mid-August.
