Message from Terry Brooks, President, Codrington Community Association

The main focus of attention is the Community Centre, however, we also boast baseball diamonds, a BMX Traack, and an Exercise Trail, as well as the recently constructed Shelter which houses our Famrer's Market, due to recommence every Sunday from mid-May, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and this year featuring some new additions to the vendors, as well as the familiar favourites and the music which were so popular last year.

At the Centre in a typical week, we provide a Drop-In venue Monday to Thursday mornings, includin an Art Club on Mondays, $3 breakfast on Tuesdays, Soup Sale on Thursdays, Library also on Tuesday mornings, soon to resume Friday evenings, and Saturday afternoons, and Line dancing on Thursdays. The Women's Institute meets once each month, and the Seniors Club also once a month. Open Mic is Monday, Euchre on Fridays, and the Hall and Shelter are both available for private bookings and functions.

This year we are planning a St. Patrick's Supper, a Trout Dinner, a Yard Sale, a Family Fun Day, a Hallowe'en Party, a Harvest Supper, and a Christmas Party, as well as a fundraiser Variety Show on April 10th, featuring a mystery celebrity performer.

I am extremely proud of the commitment and dedication of the amazing team of volunteers who donate their time and energy to oversee and provide this extensive programme of events and activities which bind and cement our community together in a caring and supportive embrace.

 

The Codrington Farmers’ Market

The Codrington Farmers’ Market began serving customers on May 17 of this year, and just ended on Oct. 25.  The focus was on Local Products and our customers seemed to really enjoy talking to the producers about how their items were grown/produced.  There was a wide variety of vendors offering veggies and seasonal fruits, honey, beef, pork, baked goods which included gluten-free and diabetic-friendly, flowers, plants, craft items, VQA wine, and more.  There were cooking demonstrations by Dorothy Fletcher, using seasonal products available from vendors, plus samples, and recipes.  Most market days included a barbecue featuring local meat, and every week included local musicians playing the entire four hours.  The Codrington Market was really a destination; people could come for fresh locally-produced food, enjoy a burger, and listen to great music.  The Committee is looking forward to the 2016 season, and our vendors are making plans as well.  There is a Facebook page (CLICK HERE), and we hope to put out a newsletter this winter.  The market, a member of Farmers’ Markets Ontario, was open every Sunday from 10 until 2.  For more information, please contact Liana Palmer at 613-475-4005 or lianapalmer@xplornet.com.
