Touch A Truck Report

The Ways & Means Committee at Sauble Beach United Church had their 2nd Annual Touch A Truck event in the church parking lot on Saturday, July 6th to the delight of children and adults alike.  Over 20 large and interesting  items of machinery  were on display from tractors, a combine, truck tractor, hot rod, race car, ATV, sod machine and more.  Kids were encouraged (with supervision) to climb up and get their picture taken.  Owners were happy to explain all about their exhibit.  The Men’s Club BBQ got underway just after opening at 10 a.m. serving up delicious hot dogs, hamburgers with fried onions and cold drinks.  As the kids started to arrive, we offered complimentary ice cream cones  (some of them were big kids too) which was a big hit on a humid day.  We really appreciated having our MPP and Men’s Club Member, Bill Walker, come out to help serve – thanks, Bill.  We are pleased to let you know that we donated $150 from the BBQ to the Church Ways & Means Committee.  We like being part of this Community event which is what we are about and it was fun.   A big thanks goes out to our BBQ team – Brian Death, Phil Norley, Al Marchand,  Jim McCrae and Jerry Ayres on the cash.  Thanks guys and we hope to be part of this event again next year.

Huron Country Playhouse Trip Report


On July 9th, 56 theatre goers departed from the Sauble community center at 9:45 a.m. to arrive at the Park House in Goderich for a satisfying lunch.  Then on to the Huron County Playhouse in Grand Bend to see “Newsies” the musical about the newspaper boys’ strike in the early 1900’s against the New York City paper owners.  Everyone gave the show two thumbs up.  The acting and song and dance numbers of the entire cast were outstanding.  After the play we returned to Goderich for a delicious dinner at the Beach Street Station restaurant on the lake, arriving back at Sauble about 9:00 p.m.  It was a wonderful outing and enjoyed by all.  Thanks to Borden Evans and Alec Moore for organizing this outstanding event.
