(Information from Talya Jones, Malahide Physical Services Clerk) – “The Township of Malahide has initiated a composting promotion to assist residents in reducing their household waste.   Composters are currently sold at the Township office and Kitchen Food Waste Containers will soon be made available. These containers will be offered for $3.50 (including HST). This composting promotion is intended to align with the 2018 bag tag pickup for residents. The 2 gallon Kitchen Food Waste Containers are made from 100% high density polyethylene, are PBA free, and are easy to clean. Kitchen scraps can be collected efficiently without odours and be easily transported to the backyard composter.”

When Dr. Duncan Sinclair retires this week it will mark the end of a remarkable streak of a family’s medical service to Aylmer – there has been a ‘Dr. Sinclair’ in town for 136 years. And with the exception of a six year gap, that service has been continuous. Dr. Sinclair’s grandfather Dr. Coll Sinclair, who was born on a farm in Yarmouth, first hung out his shingle in 1875 in the brick residence on Talbot St. west across from the Bargain Shop. That building became the family home and office until just recently. Dr. Coll Sinclair added to his busy schedule by serving as Aylmer’s second Mayor, by Chairing the Aylmer High School Board for over 35 years and by even running once, unsuccessfully, in a federal election. His son Dr. Charles Sinclair joined him in 1911 and continued his practice, except for a period in the Medical Corps in World War One, until he passed away in 1958. Charles’ son Dr. Duncan Sinclair returned to Aylmer as a Doctor in  1964.





(The Aylmer-Malahide Museum’s 15th Annual Christmas Tour of Homes will be held on Friday, November 17 from 7-10 pm and Saturday, November 18 from 1-9 pm. The Museum Supper is on Friday at 6 pm at the Aylmer Baptist Church.)-  “The first home on the tour is on Caverly Road south and is owned by Johanna and Bosko Rados. This one and a half storey home was the original farmhouse built by Eli and Ellen Caverly in the early 1870’s. At this time, the beautiful old trees along the south end of Caverly Road were planted by Eli and his eldest son John Sanford. Their youngest son Charles lived in this house until his death in 1952, when the land began to be divided and sold. In 2003, the Rados family purchased this home. They began extensive renovations themselves. Notice the wrap-around veranda, with white pillars on fieldstone bases. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a “spa” bathroom with an electric fireplace.  Johanna’s large modern kitchen has painted tumbled limestone tiles behind the cooktop, a woven the table runner and a braided oval rug under the table. In 2008 the very large living room with its bank of windows, the downstairs bathroom, and the extra large mudroom were added.”
