Last Saturday looked like it could be the turn around for our grain producers. Balmy temperatures, sunshine and a drying wind made one believe that Indian Summer had arrived a month late – until – the next morning when cloud, cold wind and the threat of showers again ground harvest to a halt. Oh, the life of a farmer!
Sunday’s pancake breakfast was a real success with a good turnout of people enjoying the fine repast. The draw was won by Rick Fair. The next breakfast will be held on Sunday, December 4.
However, you won’t have to wait until December 4 for another great breakfast. The Delia Elks are holding their November breakfast this Sunday, November 13 from 9:00 am – noon in the Delia Community Hall.
Quickly coming up is the Craigmyle Turkey Supper in the church basement on Sunday, November 20 from 4:00-6:30 pm. Volunteers are welcomed to help out in several areas. A food prep work bee will be held on Saturday, November 19 in the church basement beginning at 10:00 am. Anyone wishing to help out might want to bring their favourite paring knife and/or peeler. It is always more efficient to use a “tool” you are familiar with.
Volunteers would also be welcome to help with the final cleanup beginning around 6:30 on November 20. By time for cleanup, the earlier workers find themselves really dragging their heels and would welcome new “energy”.
The no-charge Ladies Christmas party is scheduled for Friday, December 2 beginning at 6:00 pm in the church basement. The evening will begin with a supper followed by interactive entertainment, which sounds like it could, again, be a blast. The admission to this event is a wrapped gift for the gift exchange. This event is open to all ladies from inside and outside the community. Those interested in attending must call Betty (665-2247) or Bev (665-2492) by November 25, so that an adequate amount of food can be prepared.
Condolences go out this week to Ken and Laureen Strellioff on the recent passing of Laureen’s mother, Marjorie Hayes at the Hanna Long Term Care Center. Marjorie, a long time resident of British Columbia, has been living in this area for the past year to be closer to her daughter. Losing a parent is never easy at any time.
