Delia Senior News
Well, that was a bit of a shocker to wake up to all that white stuff! Guess winter is here to stay. Hope you remembered to set your clocks back on Saturday night. It always feels like –Yay! I get an extra hour! the first Sunday morning when Daylight Saving Time ends. Sunday morning, November 12, will be the first Sunday morning pancake breakfast of this season, sponsored by the Delia Elks, at the Delia Community Centre, from 9 until noon. This is always a super good breakfast with lots of good hearty food, served by friendly Elks. Give the cook a break and take her (or him?) out for breakfast on Sunday morning. Always good for some brownie points. The Pancake Breakfasts will hap- pen every second Sunday of each month from now until next Spring. Mark your calendar. The Remembrance Day Service will be held at the Delia Community Centre on Saturday, November 11, at 10:15 a.m. lunch to follow.
Be sure to come to remember and honour all those who served in the forces, past or present.
