PASTORS TO ESTABLISH MINISTRY OF  HEALING AND WHOLENESS 

 STORY AND PHOTO BY MELODY FALCONER-POUNDER

Brian and Helen Harvey moved to Zurich in the spring of this year with plans to settle into semi-retirement. Then they attended a service at Church on the Way in Bayfield.

“When we moved here we visited several churches. As soon as I stepped into the Church on the Way I felt I would become pastor of the church,” said Brian. And as it happened, a short time later, he and his wife were invited to become pastors by then Pastor Gabriel Schultz. The transition took place over the summer with the couple officially starting on Sept. 1.

The Harveys are not strangers to ministry. Helen, served in Baptist churches for over 30 years, with her first husband, the late David Houghland. She is currently filling the role of pianist and worship leader at Church on the Way.

Brian earned a BA in Religion and Philosophy and followed this up with studies at McMaster Divinity School in Hamilton in the late 1960s. His career path shifted at that time however and he ended up having a career in his native USA with Kodak. When the company declined Brian accepted a buyout and returned to McMaster to complete his studies in 2003. He served at Wentworth Baptist Church in Hamilton in various capacities including, Associate Pastor, Community Advocate and Community Chaplain from 2001-2005.

The Harveys were married in 2002. The pair found a common interest in helping people with addictions. In 2005, they established “House of Hope” in Hamilton operating it until this year when they made the decision to close it and move to Zurich.

“We housed men who were struggling with chemical dependency and other forms of life problems and guided them on the way to recovery and healthy life styles,” said Brian.

The pair also joined and were ordained by the Eagle Worldwide Ministries, a Spirit Contemporary Church in 2005.

“We have accepted this call (here in Bayfield) and hope to establish a healing and wholeness ministry,” said Brian. “I am the President of Victorious Ministry Through Christ – Canada. We help believers on their healing journey from hurts and abuses they have suffered to living positive, fulfilling lives.”

Helen has worked for many years with children in areas of literacy, worship dramas and church education. She has been certified with Child Evangelism Fellowship of Ontario. During the summer she helped with the Day Camps offered at Knox Presbyterian Church in Bayfield through Camp Kintail.

“I helped with the children’s program at Knox and we often reached capacity in the church basement with summer residents joining in. I am getting involved with the Bayfield Food Bank that is hosted out of Trinity Anglican Church and I was invited to attend the St. Andrew’s United Church Women’s Thankoffering meeting. At our Open House at the beginning of September we had lots of visitors drop in from the other churches in the community and it is nice to see that we can all join together,” said Helen.

“Unity is a basic tenant of the Christian faith and I feel that we need to work together,” added Brian.

Church on the Way offers Bible Study on Wednesday evenings for one hour starting at 7 p.m. Worship Services are held on Sunday mornings at 10:30 a.m. Services and meetings are held in the Bayfield Lions’ Community Building.

“We offer a more contemporary, relaxed style of service. We would like to see our musical worship evolve and hope to add guitars and perhaps drums along with the keyboards we currently have,” said Helen.

So there is still some work to be done for the new, perhaps not quite semi-retired, pastors of Church on the Way. 

"Rolling schools" focus of  historical society meeting 

Up in the sparsely settled bush north of Sudbury in the first half of the last century many children of railway workers, trappers, prospectors and lumbermen received their education in schools housed in converted railway coaches. These coaches passed from village to village.

Pam Stanley will tell the story of these rolling schools in Ontario’s northlands on Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bayfield Lions’ Community Building. This event is part of the Bayfield Historical Society’s monthly speakers series.

The first of these “rolling schools” was a converted coach donated by Canadian National Railways in 1926; eventually there were seven school cars plying 4,500 miles of railway lines in northern Ontario.

Fred Sloman, of Clinton, initiated the project. He also became the first teacher on a rolling school. Each week, a CN Rail “wayfreight” train moved the “school car” to specially built sidings in northern villages where it would remain for about five days. Pupils would then be left with enough homework to last until the school returned. More than 1,000 children graduated from this unique school including Fred and Cela Sloman’s own five kids.

Ratepayers' request improvements for pedestrians 

Over the past year the Bayfield Ratepayers’ Association (BRA) has been requesting that the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) make modifications to improve the safety of pedestrians as they cross Hwy. 21 to shop, dine and/or attend church.

During summer 2011, the MTO conducted three assessments of the traffic concerns expressed by the BRA. According to the BRA, the MTO concluded, that although the traffic and safety concerns are real, the village does not qualify for cross walks and traffic lights.

The BRA believes that since the MTO is resurfacing this section of Hwy. 21 by 2014 it would be the opportune time to make some requested changes. With this in mind the BRA are requesting the following modifications and improvements by the MTO to Hwy. 21 as it passes through the village:

• That the speed limits be changed from 60 KMS to 50 KMS starting at Paul Bunyan Road at the south end and continuing through to Bayfield River Road at the north end of the village.
• That new signage indicating a new reduction in speed is posted at Crystal Springs Road in the south and at Bayfield Road at the north.
• That the shoulders of the road be paved to allow safe navigation for pedestrians and cyclists through the heart of the village, Mill Road at the south and up to Old River Road in the north.
• That a "Hidden Intersection" sign be place at both the north and south entrances from Hwy. 21 to Short Hill Road.

The BRA is pleased to note that they have obtained support for this initiative from ten organizations within the community including, the Medical Director of Health for Huron County.

For more information on these requests please contact Sondra Buchner at tsbuchland@tcc.on.ca.

alternatives to traditional health care focus of evening

Just recently, the Ontario College of Physicians and Surgeons passed a policy statement that read in part, “… Doctors should respect patients’ rights to choose and keep the lines of communications open with alternative practitioners”.

Heather Boon, a medical sociologist at the University of Toronto, said, “Whether or not MDs agree, they may soon find themselves working more closely with naturopaths and other CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) practitioners.”

What are these treatments? Are they recognized and regulated? Are they harmful? What and whom do they help and how? The Alexandra Marine and General Hospital Foundation has brought together five speakers who practice alternative and supportive treatments as part of an educational evening.

On Nov. 8, the AMGHF will present the third lecture in the “Words of Wellness” Series.

During the evening to be held at the Bayfield Town Hall, Drs. Brent and April Hulley, of Bayfield, will provide insight into the role of chiropractors. Other speakers will include: Dr. Kate Hazlitt, of Goderich, naturopathic; Dr. Katarina Romano, acupuncturist; and Stephanie Schilthuis, massage and reflexology therapist.

“Words of Wellness” is an educational series that neither supports nor condones the principles expressed by the speakers. All the speakers in the series are giving graciously of their time to support the AMGHF. In the first two lectures, Dr. Ken Shonk and Dr. John Howard challenged their audiences and indeed their peers to consider treatment of the whole patient as a priority and not focus on just the disease.

Also on Nov. 8, in addition to the speakers, those who attend can enjoy the work of seven local artists who have prepared a show and sale of their work. The art show, with refreshments, begins at 7 p.m. The lectures along with a “questions and answers” session will start about 7:45 p.m.

Tickets are $20 and available in Goderich at Finchers, Microage Basics or the AMGHF office by calling 519 524-8323 Ext. 5349. In Bayfield, contact Ray Letheren at 519 565-2317 or email raypaula@tcc.on.ca. Please note seating is limited.

Workshop will help people get acquainted with camera

There are so many buttons and dials on a digital camera that many folks might be intimidated to push or turn them. George Zoethout can help relieve this anxiety.

Due to the efforts of the Photography Club of Bayfield (PCoB) he will be leading a second introductory workshop to improve individual’s camera skills on Nov. 17 at the Bayfield Lions’ Community Building.

“Understand your Digital Camera and Take Better Photos” will be held from 10 a.m. to noon.

Zoethout led a similar workshop earlier in October. Doug Brown, one of the participants, said, “The workshop was very interactive and helpful; this was reinforced by the fact that after the workshop many of the participants asked if he would come back and do the next level. I think we all learned about camera functions that we did not know existed and that we hopefully will try to use.”

There are currently four spots available for this eight-person workshop. The cost is $10 for members of the PCoB and $20 for non-members. To reserve a spot please call Jack Pal at 519 565-5340 or email bayfieldpc@gmail.com.

Bayfield Concert Series brings Canadian talent to town

Canadian singer-song writers are the focus of the Bayfield Concert Series and the artists set to appear at the Bayfield Town Hall over the next few months are all highly qualified.

Basia Bulat performed to a very appreciative audience on the evening of Oct. 18.

Anyone who missed this performance, won’t want to miss out on the other two acts on the schedule. Meades Bros. Productions will be bringing to the village Juno Award Winner, Meaghan Smith, on Dec. 6 and multiple Juno Award Winner, Sarah Slean, on Feb. 15.

Om Yoga Studio in Grand Bend is sponsoring the Smith concert, with London Life acting as sponsor for Slean show. The Smith concert is priced at $30 a person while the Slean show is $40.

Both shows begin at 8:30 p.m. with doors to the town hall opening at 8 p.m. Tickets are available now from ticketscene.ca. They can also be purchased in Bayfield at The Black Dog Pub and Bistro or Luxe Clothing Co.

 

optimist club

The Optimist Club of Bayfield would like to encourage everyone in the community to vote for the Bayfield Splash Pad project in the second round of voting in the AVIVA Community Fund Competition from now until Nov. 5. 

The club generated nearly 300 voting supporters in the first round and well over 1,000 votes but the main objective is to make it to the semi-finals and to do that a lot more support will need to be generated. If the club makes it to the finals they could share in a portion of one million dollars in grant money being offered by AVIVA insurance. Any amount granted would be a great help in raising the approximately $150,000 needed to construct a Splash Pad in Clan Gregor Square.

All people need to vote is an email address, they can vote once a day per address, it is important to remember to vote everyday and to spread the word to others. To register and vote go to: Aviva .

People who are AVIVA Insurance customers can also encourage their brokers to become supporters of the project to generate even more votes. P.A. Roy Insurance Brokers of Clinton and Wingham, Van Allen Insurance in Listowel and Omni Insurance in London are currently supporting the Splash Pad project.

According to the Wearing’s website, it is based on her own life growing up with a gay father.

The website indicates that the “multimedia performance moves from her carefree childhood to the moment she learned, at age 12, that her family was a tad more complex than she had thought… Balancing intimacy, history and downright hilarity, Confessions of a Fairy’s Daughter is a captivating tale of family life: deliciously imperfect, riotously challenging, and full of life’s great lessons in love.”

ISSUE 171

Remember 171

In Issue 171, this undated photo showed three people standing in front of one of Main Street’s iconic buildings. Several folks remarked on this image but only Marilyn Pfaff could identify all three people as well as the location of the photo.

“It was taken in front of The Village Guild, with Sarah and Richard Dick, along with Miss Kruke – likely taken about the time that the Dicks purchased The Village Guild from Miss Kruke,” shared Pfaff. “She was one of the two sisters who began the shop. By the time the Dicks had bought the business, one of the sisters had died. As I recall Sarah telling us, the Kruke sisters were also teachers, as were the Dicks.”

ISSUE 172

Remember Me 172

In Issue 172, these two St. Andrew’s United Church Women were both 90 years-old in 1974. Records indicate they are J. Sterling and M Scotchmer - does anyone remember their first names?

How professionals will be decking the halls in 2012 showcased on homes for the holiday tour

IMG_7465
Plums sprinkled with golds and silvers are the color trends of note for the 2012 festive season.

PHOTOS AND STORY BY MELODY FALCONER-POUNDER

Homes for the Holiday, a tour of homes decorated in anticipation of the festive season, to be held on Nov. 3-4, is sure to be a pleasant lead in to the Village of Bayfield’s Christmas celebrations one weekend later.

The doors of five beautiful Bayfield homes will be opened to the public on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. Area florists, designers, merchants and those with a penchant for holiday décor will enhance the houses; providing visitors with ideas they can incorporate in their own homes.

People will see first hand how the participating professionals are adopting the current trends in holiday décor.

“Themed Christmas trees are on trend,” said Deb Grasby, owner of Cabin in the Woods Design in Bayfield.

She sited, as an example, a tree decorated with seashell ornaments as an excellent way people could compliment a home by the waterfront.

IMG_5727This home owned by Shirley and Fred Schilbe, of Bayfield, is joined on the Homes for the Holiday tour by an upscale condo, a heritage home constructed in the late 1860s, another brand new build and a home modelled after the Strawberry Island Lighthouse in Georgian Bay.

“Keep other décor items to shades of the paler blues and blue greens,” said Grasby. “A wreath with traditional greenery and shell embellishments will continue the look right to the front door.”

According to Helen Varekamp, of Bayfield’s Huron, Hearth and Home, plum shades are the colors of the season.

“This color lends itself to be incorporated into many different styles of decor and is easily complemented with gold or silver to give it pizzazz. It looks great on either a green or white tree,” said Varekamp.

Today’s design “buzz words” include formal, traditional, eclectic or contemporary but is there a way to combine these styles amongst the baubles and bows and still give the space a cohesive look? These two designers agree it is possible.

Grasby suggests using a monochromatic color scheme and then combining elements from various styles.

“This will make your décor visually cohesive. Easy on the eyes but dynamic at the same time,” she said.

“If done well, an eclectic design produces an atmosphere that's unpredictable and fun,” added VareKamp. “However, individuals have to be careful that the styles they decide to use don't clash and appear chaotic.”

VareKamp offers five basic principles to keep in mind when combining styles: line, color, texture, mass and form.

IMG_7490
When choosing tree decorations the designers suggest using different shapes and not to be afraid of repetition.

 

“In order for the design to work, these five principles must be in harmony,” she said. “People also have to make sure their color schemes don't clash and that their decor is balanced and in proper scale.”

At the heart of any holiday décor is the Christmas tree. Both designers shared some tips on how to make it a standout showpiece.

“The most important element in an outstanding tree is the lighting. The standard guideline is 80 to 100 lights per foot of tree,” said Grasby. “This ensures that the decorations are illuminated to maximum effect.”

VareKamp added that once the color and theme has been selected it is important to ensure that the tree type, lights and skirt match as well.

“When choosing decorations, use different shapes and materials within this style and don’t be afraid of repeats,” she said. “Tuck some of the decorations and lights deep into the branches to create depth.”

“A stand out tree topper that coordinates with the ornaments will complete the look,” noted Grasby.

The featured houses on the Homes for the Holiday tour include an upscale condo, a heritage home constructed in the late 1860s, two brand new constructions and a home modeled after the Strawberry Island Lighthouse in Georgian Bay.

Grasby’s creative talents will be showcased in the lighthouse as she combines roles as both homeowner and designer. Varekamp will work her magic in the heritage home known in the community as Fairlawn.

Although the Homes for the Holiday tour focuses mainly on interior decor, Varekamp offered some suggestions on how the outside of the home can be decked out for the festive season as well.

“In elegant decor less is more. This will apply for the outside as well,” she said.

Varekamp suggested choosing some stunning decorations for the front door area and other focal points of the property.

“Incorporate flood lights instead of an abundance of small lights everywhere; this will create a breath taking statement. Don't forget to choose a color and theme for the outside also, based on the style and color of the house, she said.

With close to a dozen professionals, hailing from Bayfield, Grand Bend, Goderich, Clinton and Seaforth, sharing their expertise in the homes there is sure to be an abundance of decorating ideas to suit a variety of tastes.

Tickets are on sale for $20 each and will include a light lunch served at the Bayfield Village Inn. Tickets are available now by calling the Bayfield Village Inn, 519 565-2443. Elsewhere in Bayfield they are available at Brandon’s Hardware, Nip N’ Tuck, The General Store and Cabin in the Woods Design. Tickets can also be found in Clinton at Curves, in Grand Bend at The Garden Gate, in Goderich at Homescapes by Lynn and in Seaforth at Blooms N’ Rooms.

This is the fourth home tour since 2006 organized by the Optimist Club of Bayfield. The club, now in its 29th year, supports local youth related projects, such as the village’s skateboard park. With the mandate, Friends of Youth, they also enjoy supporting such organizations as the Make-A-Wish Foundation of South Western Ontario. They are currently embarking on their largest fundraising endeavor to bring a Splash Pad to Bayfield in the summer of 2013. A portion of the proceeds from the tour will go to the “Making a Splash” Campaign.

Editor's Note: Next issue Grasby and VareKamp will offer suggestions on how to dress a dining table to make it elegant, yet fun, for the holidays.

In the 173 weeks since the first issue was published the Bayfield Breeze has grown to become the voice of the village and thanks to the worldwide web it has been accepted on a global scale.
