On July 21 at the beach in Charlottenburgh Park, Serving Kindness, a volleyball tournament, will be held.

Colton Gallant and his committee have been co-ordinating this event with Lissa Deslandes, of the Raisin River Conservation Authority, aiming for a successful inaugural tourney. Proceeds will be divided up and donated to different families in the area who are currently experiencing financial hardship.

The cost per team is $200 (6-12 players), and this is also a co-ed tournament, with each team required to have a female on the court at all times. As of this posting, eight teams have signed up.

DJ Poswah (Eric Laszewski, 28, Cornwall) has kindly agreed to spin tunes throughout the day.

Teams and individuals are also encouraged to book a campsite, stay the night, and support Charlottenburg Park.

The event logo was created by Colton’s older sister, Caitlyn Gallant, who also came up with the names.

For more information, visit the Facebook event page or call Colton Gallant at 613-360-8800.

'Bring The Chief Back'

publisher Mar 14, 2017 - 11:54am

Greenfield author Henri De Souza is seeking the public’s help in returning the remains of his late father to Togo, where he had been a chief. 

Officially known as His Highness Chief Apetovia III of Kodjoviakope-Lome, Boniface De Souza passed away February 11.

“Fifteen months ago, Dad accepted a super-visa to come to visit his children and grandchildren in Canada. Due to his declining health, he did not go back to Togo, but unfortunately passed away, near Alexandria at the age of 75,” says Henri De Souza.

Because of his status, “It became important that his body be repatriated to Togo for burial,” notes Mr. De Souza.

The cost of funeral arrangements has spiked to $15,000.

In an effort to pay the expenses, the family has launched an online appeal, entitled “Help Bring The Chief Back.” The goal is $6,000. Visit gofundme.com/help-bring-the-chief-back to make a donation.
