The Village was devastated by a fire on Tuesday at noon. The Bernier Street Hotel, that has been a mainstay of the village and it’s only full time permanent business, burned to the ground. Sympathy of the community is extended to the owners, Sheldon and Charmaine Freed, their daughters, Allyssa, Randolyn and Hunter and their families.

Happy birthday, Darlene and Darrell, and thanks for celebrating with us at coffee row, Darlene.
