No Longer on the Run
The Story of a young Ukrainian who Spied for the Soviet Secret Service
For most of his life Ukrainian-born Andy Klischenko carried a secret about spying for the Soviet Secret Service during the Second World War. Eventually he spent time in a German labour camp, and later made his way to security in Canada. Although safe in this country, he did not reveal his story until recently for fear of recriminations against his family in Ukraine. However, he was surprised to receive medals from both Ukraine and Canada for his wartime contribution to the Allied cause. Written by Lorraine Fell of Baptiste Lake, this book will be launched on August 16, 2014. $15 plus shipping and handling: Canada $5, U.S. $7. Order HERE More information HERE
From Farm Field to a French GraveOn July 28, 1914, 100 years ago, my 16-year-old uncle Oscar French, like thousands of other Ontario teenagers, was quietly doing his chores on the family farm near Waverley. At 6 p.m. on July 28, 1914 Austria declared war on Serbia and began bombing the capital Belgrade the next day. Oscar probably knew almost nothing of Serbia and Austria but he would be drawn to the battlefields of Europe and a grim death at Vimy Ridge on April 9, 1917. Uncle Oscar wrote a series of letters to his mother, which are chronicled in the forthcoming book Letters to Vimy. To read more, CLICK HERE.

A Book With A Lot of Meat
Gilmour's Meats and Deli in Rossmore now offers Wind, Water, Barley & Wine alongside its roasts and steaks. Meat manager Wyatt Whitehead serves up the colourful book that offers up a geological history of Prince Edward County, one slice at a time. Pound for pound, at $40 it's one of the best values in the County. Next to Gilmour's meats, of course.

Distilling the Past 
The Distillery District in Toronto is a dynamic example of heritage preservation. Sylvia French of Wallbridge House Publishing told the story of this heritage distillation process to the Friends of Glanmore National Historic Site. She traced the District's history from a distilling complex, once the largest in the world, to a pedestrians-only locale dedicated to arts, culture and entertainment. There were also references to local distilleries, Corby's north of Belleville and the new Gilead 66 Distillery in Prince Edward County. This presentation is available from Wallbridge House Publishing for clubs and other interested groups. Contact us here.
We found Uncle Oscar's grave

In October, 2013, a small expedition of the Elmer French family went to Europe in search of the grave of their uncle, Pte. Oscar French, who was killed in 1917 at Vimy Ridge. They found it in Nine Elms Military Cemetery.

Oscar was an teenage farm boy when he enlisted in the Canadian army in 1915. During training, he became a machine gunner. As the famous attack on Vimy Ridge began on Easter Monday, April 9, 1917, he and another soldier were hit by shellfire. It is the intent of writer Orland French to incorporate his uncle's letters into a book on the First World War.
