Lift bridge reminder

Don’t forget, the Larocque Bridge to Valleyfield will be closed from January 10 until March 17 to get its cables replaced, so you’ll just have to take the pretty drive over to the Saint-Louis Bridge. But –please drive carefully on those back roads.

Summer movie vibes

Ciné-Cinéma will be presenting the summery comedy-drama Le temps d’un été on Friday, January 19 at 7:30 p.m. (original French version) and on Sunday, January 21 at 2 p.m. (with English subtitles) at the Little Green Library (4 Lorne Street, Huntingdon). This is a heartwarming story of a city priest who inherits a seaside property and brings a group of houseless people on vacation. More information can be found at

Find coffee, games, and JOY

Join the friendly folks at the Village Church (52 Lampton Street, Ormstown) for coffee, muffins, conversation, and games on Wednesday mornings. And, every two weeks starting January 31, the JOY program (Joining Oldsters and Youngsters) will be part of the morning get-togethers, with Grade 4 students from Ormstown Elementary.

More muffin mornings… mmm

On Fridays from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. you will find coffee, tea, baked treats, and warm conversation at the Huntingdon United Church (182 Chateauguay Street). There’s sure no shortage of sweet treats and friendly socializing in the Valley!
