WHAT’S HAPPENING at Centre Wakefield La Pêche – The Centre will be used as a COVID-19 Vaccination clinic.  You MUST BOOK an APPOINTMENT. 

The Library is open as per its regular schedule. 

SOLAR LIGHTS PROJECT – Our Beautiful Beasts of Africa are now available at Freshmart. Every four sold will allow us to buy a solar light for our artisans’ families in Uganda. This will:

  • eliminate toxic kerosene fumes

  • reduce asthma in kids

  • allow homework at night

  • charge cell phones

  • let artisans buy soap with money saved 

Another Beads of Awareness initiative... helping reduce poverty, improve health, and support education in Uganda.  A small investment goes a long way! Our beasts are not only beautiful but super cute too! Check them out near the cash at Freshmart in Chelsea and at La Tortue in Wakefield. 

Coming Events

WE HAVE several new vendors at this year's Wakefield Market. One of them is Ferme Ostribee, an ostrich farm located in the Pontiac north of Shawville. Their main products are ostrich eggs and shells, although they also offer ostrich feathers and duck eggs. Did you know that ostrich eggs are the size of 24 chicken eggs? They contain a different protein than chicken eggs and can be consumed by people who are allergic to chicken eggs. Their ducks are pasture managed, allowed to free range all day, and are fed grain, crickets and the occasional cucumber and tomato! Visit them this week at the market, Saturday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Ski Vorlage. www.marchewakefieldmarket.ca


MARCHÉ CHELSEA Market – Thursdays 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., Meredith Center, June 3 to Oct. 14. A warm welcome! Hope to see you at the market where you can shop local, organic and fresh! Delicious organic veggies and breads. Scrumptious pastries, Indian food, maple products. Wonderful soaps, embroidered bags and cloth items, spice blends, teas, creams, and flower bouquets.
