4)  ST Martins run was this past Saturday, Oct 2, organized by Bob Cormier.  Had a great drive to Norton where we met up with Mary and Paul Coxon, then proceeded to drive to St Martins for our meal.  Power had been out and just got back on when we arrived.  Did a good run through Fundy Trail, and made stops at 2 locations along the way.  Talked with Mrs Franklin whose father was instrumental in the formation of the trail, she was a very funny lady and entertaining, President advised he had met her before.  On way home we stopped at Cobblers Lane Fudge Factory in Sussex or Sussex Corner and had great fudge and ice cream which we were told was calorie free and diabetic approved.  Would have brought samples to share at the meeting but we ate it all.  Then home.  Thanks to Bob and also, Paul and Mary who suggested the addition of the ice cream and fudge stop.
