popularity of Ringette is expected to show in Valley East when the players
hit the ice to begin the 2006-2007 season. The sport is receiving some
excellent exposure at the secondary and post-secondary school levels. On
top that the National Ringette League is playing games in small
communities across Ontario, including a stop in Valley East last winter.
As such, the Valley East Ringette Association is gearing up for one of
their biggest years ever. In the photo at the side, two of the girls were
taking part in a dry-land drill at Neil's Your Independent Grocers during
their Annual Corn Roast on August 19.
Terry Gosselin, shown in the photo below with a wonderful lady by the
name of Mimi Dube and one of the star players in the association, Ashley
Stone, was very pleased with the Corn Roast, from both fund-raising and
image-raising perspectives. "This gives us a chance to get visible in
the public and let people know what we are all about. When the kids see us
having a good time and working together they may
be more interested in giving us a shot and register to play. Ringette is a
fantastic game. All of the girls and boys who take part say they love the
speed and skill involved and they truly enjoy the competition."
Terry, who is in charge of Publicity for the Association, expressed his
gratitude to Mimi who had just donated some money to the league. She said
she wasn't interested in eating anything from the barbecue, but she just
wanted to support the club.
The photo at the bottom of this article shows some of the action that
took place during the Corn Roast and Barbecue.
Registrations for Ringette will be held this coming weekend at the
Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre from Saturday, August 26 to Wednesday,
to Terry, "We held some of our registrations at the Hanmer Valley
Shopping Centre last year and it turned out very well. We met a lot of
people who were not familiar with the sport and many decided to join. This
year, our registration times will be Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.
until 4 :00 p.m. on both days. We will be there again on Monday, Tuesday
and Wednesday nights for registrations from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. If you have
any questions about the sport, the games, the costs, etc., simply drop by
and we will have someone on hand to help you."

Home Comfort Specialists From
Independent Energy Services Provided Many Homeowners With Valuable
Advice During Mall Exhibit
Villeneuve, owner of Independent Energy Services located in the
Industrial Park, is shown on the left arranging colourful
brochures that were available for the public during the Corporate Exhibit
whcih was held at the Hanmer Valley Shopping Centre on Thursday, August 17
and Friday, August 18, 2006.
During the two day presentation, Home Comfort Specialists from IES were
on hand to answer questions and provide expert advice on how to get your home ready for the long, cold winter
In April 2000 Rick decided to leave his 11-year
position as Service Inspector at Union Energy (formerly Union Gas) to
start up a Residential Plumbing and Heating business. With the support of
his wife, Jody (nee Connors), Rick worked from the basement of his home in
with 2-5 employees.
In 2001, Rick bid on his first Commercial job at the
Club D’Age D’Or in Hanmer. The Board of Directors was pleased with his
presentation and awarded him the job. This large renovation quickly grew
into a large mechanical project and allowed Rick to increase his
workforce. The experience was a success and helped set the foundation to
pursue work in the commercial market.In September 2004 Rick relocated the business to the Valley East
Industrial Park at 2869 White Street where Independent
Energy Services, provides Plumbing,
Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning equipment and services to
both the Residential and Commercial markets.
Rick makes it very clear that he is in this business
for the long term. “I believe that I have formed a sound foundation for
this business and, I intend to pass it on to my sons, Justin and Joel. I
am hopeful that it will be passed on for generations and that it will
continue to employ and support many families within the
region as well as continue to serve our customers’ needs”.
and Jody used the event to introduce the community to their team of
professional “Home Comfort Consultants”.
All of the Home Comfort Specialists at Independent Energy Services look
forward to opportunities to get out into the community to help the general
consumer become more familiar with plumbing, heating and cooling systems
that are on the market today.
"An educated consumer makes wise choices," indicated Barry
Hamilton, Sales Manager of Independent Energy Services, shown on the right
in the photo at the left.
Barry especially enjoys demonstrating new products and
technology to home owners who stop by to visit their corporate public
exhibit. According to Barry, everyone was very interested in the TRANE CleanEffects air
filtration system which uses a special technique to "electronically
charge" air-borne particles in order to trap them as they pass
through the cold-air return in your furnace. "This is a new product by TRANE that will filter up to
99.98% of air-borne mold spores, allergens and other particles that are
known to create problems for people with respiratory conditions,"
explained Barry. "As the particles flow through the filter they are
given an electrical charge, which then allows them to be trapped inside
the system. The air that goes on to the furnace and then into the house is
99.98% particle free. With so many people complaining about allergies
today, this system will go a long way to providing them with added comfort
and an improved quality of life."
Rod O’Grady, shown in the photo on the right, found
that many people were equally impressed with information about the TRANE
XR Series Air Conditioners which are built with a Duro-Tuff basepan and a
state-of-the-art Spine Fin Coil. Homeowners are surprised to find out that
it is really not very expensive to install a central air conditioning
system in existing homes. According to Rod, most new homes being built
today come with central air already installed.

Masciangelo Motors Brings
In Greater Number of On-Site Vehicles With Expansion of Lot Space
Motors has recently expanded the the amount of space it has on site for
vehicles and the result has been a huge increase in the number of cars and
trucks on the lot for customers to browse through.
Ron & Jeff continue to search out the auctions, both in person and
on-line to bring in the best deals possible. This means that many vehicles
are on and off the lot before you know it, so many people in the market
for pre-owned vehicles have developed the habit of dropping in for a look
on a regular basis.
You can still discuss the type of car or truck you would like to
purchase and have Ron & Jeff search out the continent for exactly what
you are looking for. The "Pick of the Month" section on their
web site also gives you an excellent overview of the kinds of vehicles you
can find on the lot.
If you want a
close up look at the latest on the lot, just drop in and see Ron, Jeff, Tim or Jennifer. Better
