Londonderry Lines, Amanda Langille
The kids are back to school, the gardens are nearing the end of their season and the morning air has a crispness to it that can only can mean that fall is on the way. Here at our house we have a friendly chipmunk, and perhaps you do too. Ours is named ‘Buddy’ and Buddy has been hard at work for a long time gathering up seeds, nuts, and other goodies for this winter.
Just like our chipmunk friends, it’s safe to say that most of us get the urge to prepare for winter, be sure to have the wood in, dried and piled, think ahead to the coming snow and be sure to have the jams and preserves made. There is nothing better than pulling out the sweet taste of summer in the dead of winter. This is when one appreciates homemade jam the most.
As part of the Londonderry Heritage Series, the Thirsty Church Project is happy to host a workshop on the most delicious rhubarb pineapple jam you can imagine. This one-hour workshop is taking place on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. in the community room of the Thirsty Church.
This is a free workshop and all participants will leave with their own fresh jar of rhubarb pineapple jam. The workshop will be led by Londonderry Station’s own Millie Langille. If you know Langille, then you know she knows her stuff when it comes to keeping tradition, making preserves and baking the absolute best homemade bread. The coffee pot will be on as the only right thing to do after jam has been made is, of course, to enjoy it with biscuits.
Registration is on a first-come basis and to ensure enough jam and biscuits for everyone. Join in by calling 668-2300 to register.
Stay tuned for future Londonderry Heritage Series workshops coming this fall including a thanksgiving flower arrangement, and Christmas fudge and sweets.
The Londonderry Community Council is gearing up for a great fall and will meet the first Sunday of every month at the Londonderry Hall at 7 p.m. Join in anytime.
Happy Anniversary wishes are going to Ray and Millie Langille celebrating 45 years.
