2) The fun continues into Saturday for all age groups, including a mini softball tournament, an awesome kids zone, featuring Ry-J’s inflatables; the Chapeau Lion’s Club duck race; a vendor’s market; a dunk tank; a magician; an show by Les Enfants du Monde,  face painting; Little Ray’s reptiles; a rib dinner; a dance party, featuring The Groove Revival; and so much more!! “Bring all your family and all your friend to Islandfest’’, says Winston Sunstrum, Mayor of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes, “Come enjoy all of the free activities!”

3) The rib dinner on Saturday evening will be prepared by the local restaurant, L’Ancienne Banque, who are making their famous recipe for tender, fall off the bone, mouth-watering ribs. Make sure you bring a big appetite and you won’t be left wanting. Get your tickets now, at the office of the municipality of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes, or from your local organizations before they’re sold out.

4) Come out and enjoy the local live musicians with the Groove Revival on Saturday night! They are sure to get you in the groove to dance the night away!

5) It is all thanks to the support that we have received from our local businesses and community groups, whether through donations, sponsorship, or volunteers, that we are able to offer this fantastic event. Brochures of the day’s events, with an itinerary and a map, are available at local businesses and at the municipal office. Our objective is to bring the communities together, get some fresh air, and have some fun. Come one, come all, admission is free!!

Fr. Tim Notes:
1)  NOTICE FOR EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO SEEK LEGAL COMPENSATION FOR FLOOD DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTIES: Mr. Colin Dubeau, a partner of the firm Nelligan, Payne, & O’Brien, will be in St. Joseph’s Church (7 rue St-Joseph, Allumette Island) on this THURSDAY AUGUST 8th at 7 pm to discuss a proposed class-action lawsuit. Everyone who suffered damages or loss of value due to the flood is welcome to attend. Mr. Dubeau will only be here for one hour so please don’t come late!

2) We have two couples who are celebrating significant wedding anniversaries this weekend. Mr. & Mrs. John Donnelly of St. Joseph’s Parish are celebrating 65 years together, while Jerry and Marie-Paule Muldoon of St. Paul the Hermit Parish are celebrating their 50th anniversary as a married couple. Congratulations to both couples! May this weekend be a true celebration of your love for one another.

3) There are also a few family reunions taking place this weekend. The Spence family, the Keogh family & the Donnelly family of St. Joseph’s are gathered together this weekend, while the Bolger’s of Chapeau have gathered as well for their annual family party. Here’s hoping that good weather and happy spirits are the hallmarks of their celebrations.

4) It gives me great pleasure to announce that Archbishop Mulhall will ordain Michael Coyne to the diaconate on Friday, August 16, at 7:00 p.m. in St. Francis Xavier Church, Renfrew. Let us pray for Michael as he continues to prepare for this major commitment.

5) St. Gregory the Great taught that when we care for the needs of the poor, we are giving them what is theirs, not ours. We are not just performing works of mercy; we are paying a debt of justice. Life does not consist in possessions but in sharing what we possess with others. The goods of the earth have been given to everyone. This is something we should keep in mind in light of the lesson that Christ taught to his disciples in this weekend’s gospel.  The rich man’s world was small, just him and his possessions, and now he learns that he is to lose his life. What good are his possessions now? Jesus states the moral of the story. This is how it will be for everyone who stores up treasure for himself or herself but is not rich in what matters to God.

6) Once again, I remind folks that if you wish to have a Mass offered on a desired date it is important that you contact Pauline at the office well in advance of the date.
