The fair society Facebook page will feature the best entries. The society also encourages residents to pay their own tribute to the community’s country fair tradition with their own original lawn and outdoor displays on the theme of “Missing the Vankleek Hill Fair. See you in 2021.”

The Vankleek Hill Fair is one of the many COVID-19 casualties but members of the fair society have come up with a plan to provide some summer fun on a smaller scale for local residents. One event is the Vankleek Hill 2020 Trac- tor Parade that rolls out August 16 from the local fair grounds at 1 p.m. for a 45-minute tour through the village before finishing up at the fair grounds. Spectators who go outside to watch the parade are urged to observe mandatory masking and social distancing rules. The Vankleek Hill Fair Society is also sponsoring a colouring contest for children. Colouring sheets are available at the rear entrance of The Review office on Main Street or can be downloaded. Completed colouring sheets must be

Online musical entertainment is also scheduled on the Vankleek Hill Fair Facebook page August 14 and 15, 7 p.m., with Andrew Charlebois of the Charlie Andrews Band taking to the stage on Friday, followed by Mariner’s Curse. Saturday evening’s musi- cal event features Keystrings, followed by Hadrian’s Wall. HAWKESBURY LEGION BRANCH REOPENS

The annual Vankleek Hill Fair is one of community events casualties of the COVID-19 pandemic but members of the Vankleek Hill Fair Society have scheduled several smaller- scale special events for August to provide community entertainment for the summer. Residents and visitors to the area might also consider taking a tour of the PopSilos art exhibit throughout the region, starting with Vankleek Hill’s own Ouimet Farms. —archives

The Hawkesbury Royal Canadian Legion (Branch 472) will reopen September 9 under the guidelines of Stage 3 of Phase 2 of the Ontario Restart plan for economic recovery during the COVID-19 pandemic. Closure of the branch hall has had a serious impact on the local Legion’s financial reserves and the reopening will help the community service club to begin its own economic recovery so that it can continue to provide services for its members and also help support local charities and community projects. Legion members and visitors are urged to contact the Legion branch for advice on pandemic protection guidelines when they go to the Legion branch for recreation or special activities in September. —photo Gregg Chamberlain

The virtual La Baie Run proved even more profitable this year for the Hawkesbury General Hospital Foundation (HGHF) than last year’s actual run along Bay Road in L’Original. Patrick Lalonde, La Baie Run founder and organizer, reported $20,000 raised for the hospital foundation by participants in this year’s virtual event. More than 300 participants registered for the event, setting the distances they planned to run and then doing their runs on their own time during the eight-day period from July 18 to 25 allotted for the event. Last year’s inaugural event raised $15,000 for the hospital foundation. —photo from Facebook page
