On October 25 the Hussar Lions hosted an informational meeting with the newly formed regional hospice society. Members of this society are seeking input and support from communities in the area in the proposed construction of a hospice facility in our area. The Cheadle Lions initiated the discussion which lead to the creation of a volunteer board to assess the need, investigate costs, location etc. for such a service and fa- cility within our district. Fundraising to support this project has already begun with the Lions Feed-a-steer program. Further information will be available through the local newspapers as this initiative progresses.
Joan Snyder of Hussar and her twin sister Joy McKee of Drumheller travelled to Amsterdam earlier this year as guests of a broadcasting company who were preparing a documentary about WWII. Some of the research involved for this film involved their father. On November 10, History Channel will be airing an episode of “War Junk” containing this information. This will be of great interest to many in our area, and we look forward to watching the program. It may be broadcast later on CBC as well.
