The Hovey’s: The rummage sale  and the Pink Elephant

Doug Willock was inspired by the Take a Look series of articles that were run in this publication in the weeks leading up to the 2019 Ontario Heritage Conference (OHC) held in early June, to write a few of his own recollections of people who have been a part of the village tapestry over the years. This week he remembers Dorothy and Ernie Hovey.

img171

Dorothy and Ernie Hovey were two of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. For years they ran Hovey’s General Store and the Post Office, located directly across from the Little Inn. You could go into their General Store and see both of them trying to deal with all the requests of their customers plus the staff. At that time, to buy cigarettes for my mother, I had to produce a note addressed from her to them. This was the 1960s and it was a different world.

If you wanted to collect the mail, you went next door and Ernie Hovey would pop in from the General Store through a door opening and produce your mail. There were also private mail boxes for the year-round residents who had the keys to open them individually. Stamps were also sold there.

One year, the Hovey’s graciously agreed to let the Rummage Sale put a mascot outside the store to advertise the coming event. Ollie Chapman and my mother Peg Willock were the organizers that year and determined to do their best. The big worry each year was could you generate more revenue than the year before? You didn’t want to be the one to disappoint!

Ollie Chapman agreed to let the mascot be built in the garage of their cottage on the west side of Tuyll Street. Mrs. Chapman and my mother thought an elephant would be just the ticket – because elephants have a long memory and apparently, they never forget, or so the thinking was at the time. To make a splash, it was decided pink would be the right color! It was guaranteed to attract attention outside Hovey’s store. The elephant was made out of chicken wire and papier-maché. It took a long time to make the elephant as elephants are big with flappy ears. Our elephant probably stood about four feet at the head and had an elongated trunk – the better not to forget. It was no African elephant look alike in the end, more like a caricature of Dumbo the flying elephant.

The turnout that year was a record and thankfully sales were higher than the year before, so Pioneer Park was financed for another year.

The Hovey’s eventually sold their General Store and Ernie ran the new brick Post Office. Canada Post’s Head Office in Ottawa dictated the new building’s specifications on Main Street and thankfully the Bayfield Public Library which eventually replaced it is much more sympathetic to the village’s architecture.

When the Hoveys retired, they bought a lot from Mrs. Gairdner’s off Main Street (which later housed the Wardrobe and now Fab) and built a comfortable bungalow. The last time I saw Ernie was at Pioneer Park looking at B-52’s flying overhead in the 1990s. He mentioned they were from a big air base across Lake Huron in Michigan. Ernie knew everything and everyone.

learn about owls and their nocturnal adaptations 

Learn about amazing local nocturnal animals at the annual Owl Prowl east of Exeter on Saturday, Nov. 2. It’s a hoot.

People can learn about owls and even meet them at the “fun, local” Owl Prowl. This event will be held at the Morrison Dam Conservation Area, 71108 Morrison Line, just two kilometres east of Exeter, south of Hwy 83.

Owls are incredible creatures of the night. Over the years, hundreds of people have learned about owls and their amazing nocturnal adaptations at the annual Owl Prowl.

“People of all ages and abilities are welcome at this event,” said Denise Iszczuk, Conservation educator with the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Authority (ABCA). “The guided hike portion will take place on fairly flat trails and cover a distance of less than 500 metres. Families can use this event as a chance to get outside and get active.”

Those who attend can meet live owls from Conservation Halton’s Mountsberg Raptor Centre. The live owl presentation is sponsored by the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation (ABCF). Admission is by donation with a suggested donation of $10 per family. Net proceeds from this year’s event will be used to purchase new education equipment to support ABCA’s in-school water safety program.

The Owl Prowl has three sessions. Families with children under six years of age are invited to come for a half-hour stroll starting at 5:30 p.m. The next two sessions are 90 minutes in length starting at 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. with a short talk on owls followed by the night looking and listening for owls.

Each 90-minute session begins with a short talk on owls by conservation educators from ABCA. After the talk, staff sort attendees into two groups. One group stays in the workshop to meet live owls with Conservation Halton staff, or dissect a pellet, or have their picture taken with Otis the Owl (a human-sized costumed owl). The second group ventures on a night hike, with conservation educators, to call in and look for owls that live in the conservation area near Exeter. After 30 minutes, the groups switch. Attendees who started inside with Conservation Halton then go outside and those that were on the night hike finish up inside. Everyone gets a chance to see and do everything, according to conservation educators.

The Owl Prowl event starts at the conservation area’s workshop behind the main public office of the administration centre building. Space for seating is limited. Organizers ask attendees to dress for the weather and to leave pets at home. Event hosts ask participants to please ‘Lug-a-Mug’ to enjoy a warm hot chocolate.

To learn more, visit the ABCA website at abca.ca at this link: https://www.abca.ca/events/owlprowl/ or contact ABCA at 519 235-2610 or toll-free 1-888-286-2610 or email info@abca.ca.

 

 livery film series  

Many thanks to the over 100 film enthusiasts who came to the first of three films in this fall's Livery Film Series. From past audience surveys, we know that some of you travel from as far as Belgrave, Brussels, Blyth and Bayfield. You won't want to miss the upcoming films for October and November.

Maiden

On Oct. 24, a unique documentary, “The Maiden”, tells the story of the Whitbread Round-the-World sailing race of 1989-1990. For the first time ever, a female crew has entered the race. If you sail, you know immediately that a 34,000 nautical mile race over 9 months is going to have its challenges. Actual footage from the race, “puts us all in the ship, right there with them” according to Peter Howell, film critic for the Toronto Star.

An additional challenge for these remarkable women was to find sponsors and supporters. When skipper, Tracy Edwards, first applied to join the race, she was advised that “girls are for when you get into port”. She remortgaged her house to buy and refurbish a 58-foot yacht, renamed The Maiden, and then secured an “angel investor”. Now, thirty years later, interviews with the skipper and crew by director Alex Holmes enhances our picture of the race, and the times.

Nov. 21 brings Bill Nighy and Sam Riley in the comedy/drama/mystery film “Sometimes, Always, Never”.

All films are shown at 7 p.m. at the Park Theatre in Goderich. Tickets at the door are $12. Mark your calendars and check the Livery Facebook page or website before you set out: www.thelivery.ca.

United Way Workshops 

Professional development and training and vital to an organization’s well-being. It can improve employee performance, build morale and increase productivity. It can also be prohibitively expensive for many organizations, especially not-for-profits. That’s where the Keep Educating Yourself (KEYs) program from United Way Perth-Huron (UWPH) comes in.

This fall the remaining workshops being offered are:

“Volunteer Management” is being held in Clinton on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at the Huron County Health Unit from 1-4 p.m. The workshop will be facilitated by Helen Dowd, a Perth East resident, who has been working with volunteers for two decades. The cost is $35.

On Tuesday, Nov. 26, Murray Comber will be facilitating a full-day workshop at the Stratford Public Library covering “Personality Dimensions”. The workshop aims to help individuals discover their true personality and how it fits in and works with colleagues and family members. The cost of $55 includes the preliminary questionnaire and workbook.

“UWPH is dedicated to offering local, affordable training to non-profits and other organizations across Perth and Huron Counties,” said UWPH Director of Communication Susan Faber. “We have a great lineup of workshops this fall and more coming in the spring. We thank Libro Credit Union for its continued, generous sponsorship of this program.”

RENDERINGS COURTESY BAYFIELD RIVER BRIDGES WEBSITE

Ward Councilor for Bayfield, Bill Whetstone has been kind enough to provide an update on the construction of the new Bayfield Bridge for our readers. His comments follow:

Construction has begun.

I am sure you have noticed the signs are up and construction has begun on the new bridge.

Looby Construction was awarded the contract by the MTO and began site work Sept. 23. Grading operations will continue west of the bridge throughout the fall and winter months to prepare the approach for the temporary bridge spring 2020. Hwy 21 traffic will be diverted onto the temporary bridge in early spring 2020.

This bridge is much more than just a bridge and the MTO with this design has done a great job listening to the concerns of the public hitting two key areas. These areas being safety and economic development.

Safety: The bridge links the portions of Bayfield that are separated by the river. Bayfield is a walking community and having safe passage for walking or cycling was a key concern for many. Having the cantilever sidewalk completely separated from the road not only provides public safety buy also offers a great view of the harbor and Lake Huron. I can see many people taking pictures from there. The side walk design has been made wide enough to allow for snow removal in the winter which will allow people to comfortably cross the bridge all year round. Something that is not possible today. For cyclists a wide lane parallel to the road also provides safety for cyclist when crossing the bridge.

Economic Development: The bridge is the gate way from the north for Bayfield and Bluewater. Gateways are key for communities as they are the first thing that people see coming to our village and municipalities and are one of the reasons why people may explore further, stay, visit, return, live. If the gateway is not something that people will remember, there is a high likelihood that they will just drive right through. Having such a unique design, while still maintaining the heritage feel for this area will surly make people take notice.

No one likes to have to wait for construction when traveling and I`m sure there may be some frustration at times throughout this project but in the end, it will be worth it.

SUBMISSIONS 

 Our vacation has begun…when we travel my husband, John, often likes to wear something with Bayfield, ON, Canada on it. A hat worn on the trip we took in January on a partial transit of the Panama Canal unearthed a couple who had roots in Hensall believe it or not!

And just two days in to this trip while travelling up to our room in the elevator the golf shirt he was wearing from our local course queried an inquiry.

“That’s not Bayfield, Ontario is it?” asked a lady in the rather crowded space.

“Why yes, it is!” replied John.

The lady then shared that she had lived in “Kinc-or-dink” for over thirty years and now lived in London. Another unrelated lady in the same elevator exclaimed, “You are kidding, my mother still lives in Kincardine!”

Then the elevator doors opened. All dispersed and resumed their regularly scheduled holidays. However, for a moment in time on an elevator on a cruise ship docked in Liverno, Italy it was a very small world.

Bayfield branding at its finest I would say! – Melody
