Second barn concert set for Cornell Farms

The second barn concert of the season at Cornell Farms in La Vallee will feature Pat Temple and the HiLO Players tomorrow (July 12) starting at 7:30 p.m.

Temple is well-known for his American music where Western swing meets hillbilly jazz. He has played everywhere across North America and in all sorts of venues.

La Vallee picnic set

Once again, the Township of La Vallee will host its annual community picnic on Sunday, July 15 starting at 3 p.m.

I thought I would give an early head's up as I know the summer gets busy.

This is a fun-filled day if great food and games. All that you need to bring is a lawn chair.

If Mother Nature does not co-operate, another date will be set.
