Congratulations Kevin. Well done!

The Buckwheat Award is given annually for a feature not written by me.
It is named after my beloved cat Buckwheat who died in 2009 at 20 years and three months old. In his younger years Buckwheat had no use at all for computers or telephones, and in fact at one point destroyed my last electric typewriter.
As he grew older he mellowed, and would lay down beside me as I typed. but talking on the telephone continued to irritate him.
In 2013, Harry 'Butch' Pellow and Mike McMullen and Ian Macdonald jointly shared the Buckwheat Award
Butch won for his wonderful story about the Boston Cafe and the Hong family in Chapleau, while Mike and Ian contributed an important piece to the history of Chapleau with their article on the location of the Hudson's Bay Company post.
Previous winners of the Buckwheat Award, were Mike McMullen, for growing up in Chapleau; Larry Martel, for his CHS volleyball team, and John Theriault for a photo feature.. One of these years we may even get together for an awards ceremony.
WELCOME TO THE MICHAEL J MORRIS REPORT!!!!
