On Septem­ber 30, Dustin Clark along with help from April Har­ri­son, sur­prised his dad Neil with a party to cel­e­brate his 65th birth­day. Fam­ily and friends gath­ered at the hall for the sur­prise and a good time was had by all.

An­other spe­cial party was held on Oc­to­ber 1 for Linda Epp cel­e­brat­ing her 80th birth­day at the Sun­downer’s Cen­tre. Many friends, neigh­bours and fam­ily joined Linda to rec­og­nize this great day.

Oc­to­ber came in like a lion with snow, wind and many power out­ages through­out the area. Trav­ellers were stranded along roads and ditches and many were of­fered shel­ter by area res­i­dents. Travis San­dum went out with his trac­tor when he got a call from some­one stuck on the Dorothy hill. He spent the rest of the day help­ing trav­ellers most of the way to High­way 36 and lead­ing a train of cars back to East Coulee.
