Since 1996, the Journées de la Culture (Culture Days) have presented admission-free creative activities which are open to all. Two local artists opened their studios to the public on September 29, 30 and October 1 in order to promote greater access to arts and culture.
Print-making, collage, basketry anyone? The Municipality of Pontiac has funded nine free art lessons in Luskville, Quyon and Breckenridge to sate your artistic appetite this fall. Five teachers from local group Get Art will be teaching a variety of creative skills in three hour lessons over three Saturday afternoons in October. The classes are free and all materials and tools are provided.
Both country folk and city slickers came out for the 15th edition of the L'Union Producteur Agricole (UPA) Open Doors event on Sept 10. Luskville's La Riveraine, the only site within the Municipality of Pontiac, welcomed well over 100 visitors. They were able to tour the farm which dates from 1905, enjoying old machinery, tiny ponies and proud peahens, not to mention sampling some delicious pancakes.

When I was a know-nothing student in Australia, we were shown the Terry Fox T.V. movie (The Terry Fox Story, 1983) for religion class....
As I knew nothing about almost anything at the time, I didn't even understand it was all true.
Now I know a few more things and now Terry Fox is and will always be my true hero.
Written by the wonderful Ian Tamblyn and brought to life by the equally wonderful Theatre Wakefield, A Summer... A Fair is a short play that will stay in your memory forever.
Part historical drama, part musical comedy and 100 percent heart, the play takes place in 1944 at the famed Cantley Picnic.
You know that it Must Have Rained A Lot when you acquire a spontaneous pond (Mountainview Turf, 5th Concession, Quyon) and a huge blue heron immediately turns up.
He didn't look all that happy to be there, but still: Nice Heron.
As with almost everything else, honey is best when it's grown locally. Large companies usually blend honey from many places; only really local honey has all the delicious freshness of home.
