It was a good season as 136 ewes gave birth to 218 healthy lambs.
I the middle of May, the lambs receive a vaccine and at
shearing time, on May 26th, they received a second shot. A
guest took pictures and commented on Shearing
May 2nd., the community received a course on CPR and the use of a
defribillator. We are prepared for emergencies and hope that we
are spared from such a challenge. On May 6th, Sr. Mary Collins
gave a presentation for the 5th Annual Damasus Memorial Lecture.
Her topic on Faith and Worship interested the participants: friends of
the monastery, some Trappist monks and some Dominican nuns from
Elmira. Our honey production will be affected this year due to
the visit of a bear that tipped over many bee boxes. They had to
be moved to a more secure location.
The lambing season ended with a surprise: one ewe had a
black lamb and a white one. It is a phenomenon that seems to
occur every 5 years.
