As of this afternoon, (May 10), over $1.7M was raised by the public via the Red Cross to support those affected by this years flooding.

As of last month, the Maison de la Famille Quyon (MdlFQ) is the new host of the Sharing Store, a place for people who are experiencing food-related problems to get discounted groceries

The new site is a step forward for the Store, which has been operating from a small room in the corner of the Beach Barn, that was proving ineffective in a number of ways.

Life becomes limited if you can't see properly.... Can't see the chalkboard, can't cross the street, can't read warnings, can't drive a car.

With this in mind, Catherine Beaudet, Director General of la Maison de la Famille Quyon, has organized a visit from a team of optometrists working with Bonhomme a Lunette, a Montreal-based organization specializing in low-cost eye ware.

In 1977, Terry Fox lost his right leg to osteosarcoma; it had to be amputated six inches above his knee.

In 1980, Terry started his Marathon of Hope, dipping his prosthetic leg in the Atlantic Ocean off the Newfoundland coast. And we know how the rest of the story goes.

This year, Shawville's Terry Fox Run celebrates it's 36th year.
