“Mother Nature”
By virtue of the fact that we use the term “Mother Nature” we
are implying that good ole “Mother Nature” is like a sweet and
kind old grandmother!! However, the reverse is the real truth!!
She can in fact, be crankier than the missus after getting off the
scales!! A recent walk in the woods following a heavy wet snow
showed ole “Mother Nature” in her true form.
Walking along, we saw a six inch diameter fir broken completely
off about six feet from the ground. Another fir was down across
the trail also snapped right off. At regular intervals there were
birches, maples and evergreens bowed to the ground under the
weight of heavy snow. Some will certainly recover but many are
likely doomed. I would bet that good ole “Mother Nature” wiped
out more trees with one snowfall than Mikie did in six months
with a chainsaw.
Of course, in this one walk, we only observed a small fraction
of what went on in the whole “170 Acre Wood” … this is the
Nauwigewauk version of A A Milne’s “100 Acre Wood” where
Winnie-the-Pooh is played by the Missus, Christopher Robin is
played by me, and The Jet does a remarkable imitation of Eeyore.
Destructive though she may be (Mother Nature, not the Missus)
after a fresh snow fall, the woods are incredibly beautiful. The
missus has been taking some pictures of our woods walks and
gee they look really great. The Jet loves his walks in the woods
and his normally sad expression perks right up when he gets the
old nose going. One day recently, The Jet set two world records
for deep snow sniffing. Yup, in just one day he went from the
normal “up to the eyeballs” sniffing to a record “up to the ears”
sniff in deep snow. Shortly afterwards he broke this record with
an “almost up to the collar” sniff. That’s my Boy!!! For being
snoopy, the Jet has no competition ... except for the missus!!
So thanks to good ole Mother Nature a “walk in the woods” has
become a “short walk, followed by scraping and shaking some
poor tree to lighten the snow burden, short walk - shake tree”
... you probably get the picture!! Thank you Mother Nature in
making a simple walk into a beautiful adventure!! 800

Hampton-Piggs Peak News
Bev Harrison has arrived in Swaziland and is spending most
of his time interviewing the students in Piggs Peak for whom
we will be paying school fees for the upcoming year. Hampton
is well known in Piggs Peak as their sister community that is
paying fees for students who would otherwise be unable to
attend school. As a result, upon Bev’s arrival, there was a line up
of parents and students asking to be put on Hampton’s list. One
such case is described by Karen Mandy:
“Her name is Nomphumelelo and she is in Form 4 at PCH. Last
year her father passed away, leaving her with her step-mum who,
shortly afterwards, also passed away. She then went to her aunt.
Despite all this, she passed last year with a 1st - getting an A in
Eng Lang and B in Lit (both of which impressed me!) This year
her aunt chased her from the house without even her uniform.
What is awesome is that one of the teachers has taken her in for
now and they’ve found her a uniform - just the school fees left.”
Unfortunately, not all our stories can have a happy ending. As
things stand, we are unable to put Nomphumelelo on our list.
Based on current students, the total cost of their fees will be in
excess of $40,000 and even that commitment is a leap of faith as
these funds are not currently available. You can appreciate Bev’s
most difficult task is telling the many deserving candidates that
we are only able to support a limited number.
Bev will soon be meeting with the mayor and council of
Piggs Peak for the official signing of a formal Memorandum of
Understanding between the Town of Hampton, Town of Piggs
Peak, and the Hampton-Piggs Peak Partnership Committee.
Although our Partnership has been in place for a few years,
this agreement officially lays out some broad principles
and guidelines for sustainable cooperation between our
communities. The document was signed in Hampton at a small
ceremony at the Mayor’s Levee on January 1 where Dr. John
Quinn was also recognized for his many years of service to the
people of Hampton. This is noteworthy because it was John who
first committed to pay for the education of a student in Piggs
Peak throughout high school. You may recognize this as the
genesis of the Starfish Program by which the education of about
50 students is now paid. John continues to be a Starfish sponsor,
demonstrating that his service to community extends beyond
the boundaries of Hampton to our neighbours in Piggs Peak.
If you would like to make a donation or assist a student like
Nomphumelelo by helping pay school fees, we have made it
possible through our Starfish Program. Please visit our website
www.hamptonpiggspeak.ca (click the link to Starfish Program)
or contact me, Mark Bettle, at 832-0003 or Carl MacKenzie at
832-2704. 110

Hampton Middle school News
By Owen Preeper
Snow. Snow. Snow. It certainly seems to have been the theme
for the last few weeks! Hampton Middle School students have
enjoyed their fifth day at home since the Christmas holidays due
to the weather. All this snow has given us lots of opportunity
for outdoor winter activities. However, we’re not so lucky with
indoor sports – a valve broke in the gym ceiling, flooding and
warping the floorboards. This has rendered the gym unusable
for the time being. So gym activities have been put on hold: the
girls’ and boys’ basketball teams, lunch hour European handball
games and, of course, Phys. Ed classes.
But do you think that will dampen the HMS Wild Cat spirit?
Of course not! Students have been well occupied because now
there seem to be more awesome activities and clubs than ever.
Students have been having great times sliding on crazy carpets
on the hill beside the school, and skiing and snowboarding at
Poley Mountain with the ski club. We’ve been busy painting
the school’s house colours in the lobby, singing at Mrs. Foster’s
karaoke, helping out as peer helpers, going to chess club and
spelling bees, and much more.
Also, a spectacular event put together by Mme. Page with help
from fellow teachers and students took place on Valentine’s Day.
Inspired by Quebec restaurants, Mme. Page created an incredible
French café, complete with music and food, for post-intensive
French students. Invited guests were M. Pelletier, Mme. Austin
and M. Page.
We at HMS have also been hard at work making our science
projects for the upcoming science fair. Students and their
projects will be chosen from their classes to participate in the
school’s fair, from which they have a chance to go to the district
fair then maybe even on to the provincial level.
With all the amazing work put into providing these great
activities for students to enjoy every day, I think Hampton
Middle School is pretty great.
Owen Preeper is a Grade 8 student at HMS. 131

Hampton rotary news
Don’t forget the upcoming performance
“Canada rocks, Eh” taking place at the Phoenix
Dinner Theatre on Saturday, Feb 26th. The
club is marketing tickets to this dinner theatre
performance. Any Rotarian can sell you the
tickets which cost $55 for dinner, gratuities and
the theatre experience. During the intermission
there will be an auction of some great merchandise. Call Beverley
or Keith at 832-5383 if you would like tickets.
The Rotary Club of Hampton would like to thank the staff,
students and parents of three local area schools for their
enthusiastic support for Rotary International’s Purple Pinkie
Project which is raising funds to “end Polio now”. Since 1985
Rotary International, the World Health Organization and the
Centre for Disease Control and more recently the Bill and
Melinda Gates Foundation have been involved in a project to
eradicate polio from the world. In 1985 there were 350,000 cases
around the world. In 2010 there were only 4 polio endemic
countries with 921 cases worldwide.
The Purple Pinkie Project is an imaginative campaign to teach
children about polio eradication and to enlist their help in the
project. Rotary volunteers made presentations to the students
of the Hampton Elementary, Dr. A. T. Leatherbarrow, and
Macdonald Consolidated schools about polio and how, when
a child is vaccinated in one of those polio endemic countries,
their pinkie finger is marked with an indelible marker to prevent
double dosing. A few days later the volunteers returned to each of
the schools and in return for a donation of $1 or $2 they painted
the children’s pinkie fingers purple. The cost of vaccinating one
child is about $1 in countries like India, Pakistan, Nigeria or
Afghanistan. Some children had one pinkie coloured purple
and some had two pinkies coloured. At one school the day the
fingers were coloured many of the staff and students dressed in
purple.
The response in all the schools was excellent. The students
and teachers at the three schools raised almost $900 for the
campaign to end polio. The club would like to say thank you to
all of them and the parents and guardians of the children whose
support was also crucial to the success of this project. One of the
Rotary volunteers has already had a request from another area
school for the volunteers to do the presentation in the upcoming
school year. 111

DONATING A POUND OF HOPE
God blessed many New Brunswick’s who
were hungry and in need of a hot meal. One
pound of deer meat will feed 4 people and 100
pounds will feed 400. FHFH Canada had a very
successful ministry in 2010.
As we travelled to meet Hunting & Fishing
Organizations this year, we met a great deal of hunters interested
in helping their own community and their fellow man. Hunters
had the choice to donate the full deer or a portion of the deer.
With the FHFH Canada up and running in full swing this year
we were able to donate venison to many soup kitchens in many
cities. Hunters donated their venison and FHFH Canada paid
the processing fees from a fund made possible by organizations
and individuals making cash donations.
Mobile one in Moncton, is an outreach program that delivers
hot meals to the streets of Moncton at night. They were able to
use the meat for Hot Hamburger Soup that enabled one deer
to feed over 400+ people with a hot meal. This is a blessing to
many that were very cold and in need of a hot meal. In New
Brunswick this season the deer population was down and we
had many hunters call and say next year they will donate their
deer.
Adventure Quest Outfitters has donated a 2011 NFLD Moose
Hunt. There are only 300 tickets for sale at $40 each or 3 for $100
This is a five day all-inclusive (meals and accommodations)
moose hunt for one hunter in NFLD with $500 spending money.
All proceeds of the tickets will be used to feed the hungry. Please
visit our website www.fhfhcanada.org or call 506-433-9096 for
tickets or any information about FHFH Canada.
Did you know that one deer could feed 400 hungry people at
your local soup kitchen?
Three Ways To Help Feed The Hungry: Donate a portion
of the deer and FHFH Canada covers the processing cost for
that portion; Donate an entire deer to the program and FHFH
Canada covers the processing cost; Make a cash donation to
FHFH Canada to help your local soup kitchen (charitable
receipt given for donation)
If you are interested in FHFH Canada doing a presentation
to your group please contacts us: Caroline Trueman, www.
fhfhcanada.org, 433-9096 or caroline@fhfhcanada.org. 811

Challenge Update
We have had several inquiries recently regarding the progress
of our 10,000 steps challenge. At the end of four weeks we have
walked a total 3,350,829 steps - yes that is 3 MILLION steps -
which (using the average of 10,000 steps = 5 miles) is 1675 miles.
For myself, I am sleeping better (especially on those days my step
count is in the high teens!), my blood pressure is down a couple
of points and as a bonus I am getting my vitamin D because I am
spending more time outdoors in spite of the overload of snow
this winter. I think even our lazy overweight cat has caught the
bug, since the other day she was tearing around the house even
though none of the other cats was even in her vicinity! Usually
Smudge only interrupts her nap in a sunbeam or next to the fire
for periodic visits to her food dish or the litter box.
I am hoping that once we have ended this 13 week walking
challenge that the habit of being more physically active will have
become ingrained into a on-going lifestyle change. There was a
time (before Ossekeag) that I routinely walked about 20 miles
per week (a 5 mile route about four times per week). That got
pushed aside with becoming a business owner, when I was “too
busy”. It feels good to get moving again.
I had not intended this article to be devoted to our walking
challenge. The plan was to do a brief update on how far we had
walked and move on . . . no pun intended. I had a whole bunch
of ideas on what to share this week. Perhaps the story of a family
member who got stuck in the driveway twice in one day. Or
Mikie ditching the tractor while pulling said family member
out of the ditch the second time. No, maybe Mike’s comment
about someone would have to be crazy to go up on that roof to
shovel it off . . . and then the next day there he was, up on that
roof shoveling it off. Or my futile search for a roof rake, which
resulted in Mikie being up on that roof with a shovel. But I’m
out of space . . .

must keep moving.” ~Albert Einstein. 801
