Evénements dans la municipalité de Pontiac - Events in the Municipality of Pontiac
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.
The next episode in this rapidly aging story. Feel free to catch up on the backstory under the "slippery" titles
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.
A serious single-vehicle roll-over was caused early morning on December 4 by a deep slick of some kind of waste matter spilled on Highway 148 near Parker Road in Luskville. 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.
The houses on the Quyon Pastoral Charge Christmas House Tour warmly received 150 visitors this year. Five family homes in Quyon and Luskville were decorated to perfection to the appreciation of all. Above, the Draper homestead in Luskville.
The jolly jingle of Christmas bells mingled with the merry cling-clang on forks on plates at the annual Parents of the Municipality of Pontiac (PMP) Breakfast with Santa event on Saturday December 2nd.
With the foundation poured and water pipes being installed, construction on the new community centre in Quyon is progressing quickly.
Luskville painter Linda Bergeron Baril will be flying to France next month to show three paintings at the Carrousel du Louvre at a show hosted by the Société Nationale Des Beaux Arts from December 7 to 10.
