In the article entitled Record crowds turn out for Expo Ormstown, on page 1 of the June 15 edition of The Gleaner, we failed to note that it was both the 1st Huntingdon and 1st Howick Scouts who were selling grillades to raise funds for members to attend a Jamborette in Scotland this July. We apologize for this omission.
In the article entitled New zoning, new vision in Havelock also in the June 15 edition on page 4, there was an error in the spelling of the company name Atwill Morin. The Gleaner regrets this error and any confusion it might have caused.
