The fog is ter­ri­ble to drive in but oh the scene that is a re­sult of it is so beau­ti­ful.

The Mun­son 300 Raf­fle Draws for 2016 wrapped up. The lucky win­ner for De­cem­ber 24 was Me­lanie Mar­shall of Drumheller. The fi­nal draw for $1,000 held on De­cem­ber 31 at the Night of the Great Gatsby party win­ner was Wendy Dyck of Mun­son. Tick­ets for the 2017 Raf­fle are com­pletely sold out. This is a very good fundraiser for the Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion. Thank you to ev­ery­one who has sup­ported the raf­fle for 2016 and who have bought tick­ets for the 2017 draws. Good luck.

Speak­ing of the New Year’s Eve party held at Mun­son, the Night of the Great Gats- by, what a won­der­ful suc­cess. The meal catered by Sub­lime was to­tally amaz­ing, the mu­sic by DJ Grant Daly kept the dance floor busy and the par­tic­i­pa­tion by at­ten­dees to dress in 1920s fash­ion was a blast. Pro­ceeds from this event will sup­port Ron­ald Mac­Don­ald House to the tune of ap­prox­i­mately $4,000. Hats off to Terri Les­lie and her vol­un­teers for putting on a top notch event. The buzz is on for do­ing it again next year.

I’m not sure where the year went but here we are turn­ing our cal­en­dars over in to 2017. What the year holds for us we don’t know yet. There will be ups and down, wins and losses. We will put one foot in front of the other and step into each to­mor­row. Let’s try to be more thank­ful, a lit­tle more hum­ble and a whole lot kinder to those around us. As you pack away your dec­o­ra­tions for the hol­i­days, trea­sure each mem­ory that 2016 brought with it, good and bad.

From my fam­ily to yours, Happy New Year, hug those that are pre­cious and we wish you all the very best in 2017.
