Seagrave United Church News July 10, 2018

SWe have had an amazing week of HOT weather. If you were fortunate enough to have air conditioning in your home, you would be quite comfortable but if you did not have a/c, I am sure you were looking for cooler places.

Betty Lou Beacock, her daughter, Bonnie Mitchel and cousin Judy Mitchel from Saskatchewan have returned from a vacation to the Maritimes. Wonderful scenery, great weather and good times.
Don Beacock and his nephew Ryan Beacock of Oshawa, travelled to New Liskeard, Ontario to visit Ryan’s father, Grant, for a few days

Please note the change in date for Art in the Park - it will now be on Sept. 29 from 10 am to 4 pm. We will be working with the Scugog Council for the Arts as part of Culture Days. Please follow us on Facebook for more details. You can also email for more info and/or for artists to register. Please visit the Culture Days website Also look under Events Port Perry.

It is sad to see that some 4-wheelers and dirt bikes have been driving on the baseball diamonds again. If you live near the park or are driving by and see anything, please take pictures and report it to the police. The tire tracks can do a lot of damage to the diamonds, both infield and outfield. Motorized vehicles do not belong in the park.

If anyone has any pictures of the Seagrave yard sale will you please contact John at 905-449-8608 or
