ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK:

 

“AYLMER LIBRARY PROGRAM WINS AWARD”

 

“There are two types of Ontario Public Library Service Awards given by the Ontario Library Association – The Minister’s Award for Innovation and the Angus Mowat Award of Excellence – and Elgin County Library has now won both in the past eight years. Elgin County Library’s Innovation award last week was for a program at the Aylmer Library.  Check it in Check it out is a radio broadcast pilot project in partnership with Mennonite Community Services that bridges the cultural, linguistic and economic barriers of Elgin County to bring the library, its resources, programs, etc. to the Low German Mennonite Immigrants of East Elgin.

In 2005 Elgin County won the Mowat Award which was also an Aylmer Library program (Open the Doors to Learning). It was for a project involving Summers’ Corners  Public School. Many of the students attending Summers’ Corners School are deemed students “at risk” (disengaged with learning for a variety of reasons-social and economic factors, learning disabilities, ESL, poor attendance etc. ). The school received a Learning Opportunities Grant that funded six bus trips to and from the Aylmer Library for students in grades 4-8. This grant facilitated a collaboration that enabled approximately 300 students to tour the library in April 2005 and receive in-depth, hands-on experiences of current library practices from library staff.”

SPITS WIN TWICE

 

AYLMER – The Spitfires snapped their longest losing streak of the year (five games) with their longest victory roll by winning twice on the weekend. Aylmer won 5-4 in Woodstock Friday and edged Simcoe 5-4 at home Saturday as the Niagara Western Junior C hockey regular schedule concluded. The Spits finished at 12-22-4 – good for fourth spot in their five team division.

Friday Aylmer scored the winner with seven minutes to go – Adam Szwed scored twice with singles going to Cody Underhill, Brad Payne and Clint Walker. In a wild finish Saturday, Simcoe scored four goals in the final eight minutes of the game to force overtime and a shootout before Aylmer finally scored the deciding marker – Payne, Rhys Thornton, Matthew Reese and Kyle DeDecker counted for the locals (Szwed notched the shootout clincher). The Spits open playoffs this weekend against Simcoe – travelling there Friday and hosting on Saturday in the best of seven series.

A.C.T. PLAY DATE CHANGE

(Contributed) “Because of a personal problem for one of our actors, it has been necessary to change the Sat. Feb. 23 date to Wed. Feb. 20, for the upcoming play – Don’t Dress For Dinner – of the Aylmer Community Theatre.”

AYLMER MINOR BALL NEWS:

 

(Information from Mike Holmes, new President of Aylmer Minor Baseball) – “There will be baseball in Aylmer this year albeit in a reduced capacity. As many people thought Aylmer ball folded we will lose most of our older kids to the new Springfield organization and surrounding centers.  The programs we will be running this year are Blast Ball (2009/2010 birth dates), T-Ball (2006/2007/2008 birth dates) and Rookie Ball (2005/2006 birth dates).  All divisions this year will be house league.  If we get enough players for one Rookie Ball team I am working with Tillsonburg to make arrangements where we can play our games in their house league division.

I believe it is important to be able to offer baseball programs in Aylmer and give kids the opportunity to play baseball in their own community.   We are also looking for coaches, board members and general volunteers to help strengthen the organization.  Registration will take place during normal business hours at the Aylmer Veterinary Clinic beginning February 2. You can download registration forms at Aylmer Minor Baseball Facebook. For information, contact Mike Holmes at aylmerminorball@hotmail.com or phone:  519-765-3283.

WHY RUN WATER IN AYLMER?

 

(A number of residents are keeping their taps open for the town during the cold spell. Bill Berry Manager of Water Operations for Aylmer provides this information) – “We do this to prevent water service lines from freezing up during the very cold days. As long as water is moving in the pipe, it won’t freeze. Thawing water lines is a rather costly and time consuming chore. The problem (in most cases) is due to the fact that the water lines in question were not buried deep enough when they were installed.

 

Only those people notified by the Town should run water. The number of people running water has been reduced substantially over the last ten years. During the winter of 1994, over 200 customers were running water. We had to thaw 50 services that winter. With the separation of combined sewers and the installation of new water mains, the numbers have been reduced to fewer than 100.

 

(Residents who run water are doing it continuously, every day until later in the spring. The town is adjusting meter readings for those involved).

 

It all depends on the temperatures as to whether people are notified to run water. Most years, people are notified in mid to late January. However last year was the first winter I can remember that we never notified anyone the entire winter. We never experienced any extended period of very cold weather last winter.”

A READER WRITES:

 

“While it is encouraging to see some relief from the growth and development stifling double digit tax rate increases, there remains work to be done for seniors and young families in our community. The amount residents are taxed has risen from 2.8 million in 2002 to a whopping 4.9 million in 2012. Effective population growth in the same duration was zero! So an escalation of the amount to be taxed rising by 43% while our population remains the same means that we are all paying a lot more to reside in Aylmer. This is also why our tax rate remains the highest in the region. Now Elgin County is looking for an additional 6% hike! Call your elected council today to discuss your concerns. (Aylmer Taxpayers Committee: Bob Warnock/Greg Currie)

 

 

 

COFFEE BREAK AT AYLMER LIBRARY?

 

(Contributed) “Aylmer Library is currently sponsoring  ‘Tales and Timmies’ by which patrons who use their library card five times receive a coupon for a small beverage or doughnut at Aylmer Tim Hortons – beginning this week and continuing until the end of February.”

 

 

 

BAD GIRLS HOCKEY ON CBC

 

(Information from Greg Smith, coach of the BAD (Belmont Aylmer Dorchester) Bantam C girls hockey team who will appear on CBC this Saturday) – “One of our parents signed us up for a draw from Scotiabank Hockey Tonight Kids and to our surprise we were lucky enough to be chosen. CBC sent a camera man to our practice on Monday night and he filmed various segments in the dressing room and on the ice including the introduction to the pre game show. After some early nerves the girls settled in and did a great job, they all got a chance to be on camera and really had a great time. They should be appearing in four short segments.  The show will air this Saturday at 6:30pm on CBC. As for the season, we are currently sitting in the middle of the pack and gearing up for a big playoff run.”

 

 

 

100 YEARS AGO: FIRST LIBRARY BUILDING 

 

(#2) (From: February 27/1913 – Aylmer Express) – “The members of the Public Library Board, the Librarian Mrs G H Haight and her daughter Helen have been working hours every day for several weeks past getting the books arranged in the new Carnegie library building. There are now about 7000 volumes,  one of the largest and best (collections) to be found in any town the size of Aylmer. They deserve the thanks of every citizen for the time and work they are giving to this matter… A citizen of Malahide asked us a few days ago why some arrangements could not be made by which Malahide could have free access to this library the same as Aylmer citizens. The library has now grown to be so large that it will meet the requirements of both municipalities.”

 

 

 

AYLMER COUNCIL THIS WEEK

 

The following decisions were made by Aylmer Council in session this past Monday:

 

-That Council authorizes Staff to plan a premiere event on March 16, 2013 at the Old Town Hall to promote the Heritage Places filming (of Aylmer)
