Codrington Farmers' Market - Codrington - May 2, 2021 The 2021 opening of the Codrington Farmers' Market will be May 2, 2021. The History Guy is looking forward to being a vendor at the market EVERY SUNDAY that I can manage in 2021. For several weeks in May I will occupy the small shelter, and later will move to the artisan vendor area on the grass west of the main shelter. This will be done based on all the best health practices in order to keep everyone safe. I look forward to seeing you at Codrington soon! Check out vendors on Facebook.

Ontario Underwater Explorers SCUBA Club - Thursday, May 20, 2021, 8:00 pm Members of the Ontario Underwater Explorers SCUBA Club are excited to hear Dan Buchanan present the story of HMS Speedy at their virtual meeting on May 20, 2021. There is interest in the history of the Speedy leading up to its loss as well as the activities of Ed Burtt, the professional diver of Belleville who was sure he had found the remains of the speedy in the early 1990s. This event will provide a different audience for the Speedy story, one that is very much in tune with the world of ship wrecks and underwater exploration. This will be fun! The event is for members of the club, but guests are welcome. Email Dan if you are interested or see the attached announcement.
