The Orkney com­mu­nity and sur­round­ing area are sad­dened this week with the pass­ing of Eileen (Bor­wick) Her­ron last Satur­day morn­ing. She put up a valiant ef­fort. Her ser­vice is this Sun­day at 2:00 pm at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity in Drumheller. Sym­pa­thy to her hus­band Tom and the Bor­wick fam­i­lies.

I ex­pect har­vest is fin­ished in Orkney but there may still be loose ends to tie up and get ma­chin­ery win­ter­ized and put away. The next rush will be to get or­ga­nized for Christ­mas.

This past Sun­day night we were to see the ‘su­per­moon’ but un­less you stayed up un­til very early Mon­day morn­ing we were clouded over but I did hear that at 2:30 am it was like sun­shine so maybe Mon­day night we may get lucky to see this event as it won’t hap­pen for an­other 34 years. I don’t think I’ll be able to stay up that long!

I trust there was a good turn out for the Re­mem­brance Ser­vice last Fri­day. I have not missed very many but wasn’t well enough to at­tend this year. I hope the Poppy Fund re­ceived a sub­stan­tial amount of money this year.

If you’re a sports fan, the football sea­son is com­ing to a close and it could be a very in­ter­est­ing Grey Cup in Toronto. They at least won’t have the weather to con­tend with. Much bet­ter than out­doors and below zero.

That’s it for this week. Henry Ford said, “Fail­ure is only the op­por­tu­nity to be­gin again more in­tel­li­gently.”
