The Crib Tour­na­ment was held Jan­uary 28 with 11 ta­bles in at­ten­dance. 5 games were played in the morn­ing, then we took a break to en­joy the de­li­cious lunch the ladies served.

Thanks to all who do­nated Smart Shop­per coupons - we could use more if any­one has some to spare.

Are you in­ter­ested or know of any­one who likes to knit or crotchet and doesn’t have any­one to give their beau­ti­ful work to? We could sure do with your ta­lent to knit dolls, teddy bears, kitty cats, etc. We will sup­ply you with yarn and pat­terns. Also, balls made with scrap yarn wound into balls with a crotchet cover (we will show you how to make these). The yarn can be any­thing - knobby, thick, thin, ugly colours, any scrap yarn - all for the needy chil­dren in Roatan. For more in­for­ma­tion phone Daisie at 403-823-7074.

Keep smil­ing and the world will smile with you.
