Re­mem­ber to fall back on Novem­ber 4, as day­light sav­ings time ends again, so turn your clocks back on Satur­day night. Do you think the pow­ers that be will ever smarten up and end chang­ing our time twice a year. It makes no sense and serves no pur­pose. Saskatchewan stays on day­light sav­ing time year round and it works fine. Time to smarten up.

The Delia Curl­ing Club will be hav­ing their An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing Novem­ber 5 at 7 p.m. up­stairs in the Curl­ing Rink. The club is look­ing for fresh ideas and wel­comes new mem­bers and past curlers. Con­tact Barry Ma­son at 403 364 2129 or John Clay­holt at 403 364 2497 if you would like to curl this year and can­not come to the meet­ing.

It’s time to pack Oper­a­tion Christ­mas Child Shoe­boxes. You can pack your own box or do­nate in­di­vid­ual items to the school and the el­e­men­tary kids will pack the box for you. Cash do­na­tions will also be ac­cepted and used to buy items that we are miss­ing. Boxes and pam­phlets are at the school if you need them but any shoe box will do. Drop off packed boxes at the school by Wed­nes­day, Novem­ber 7. Last year Delia sent out 58 shoe­boxes, let’s see if we can top that.

Re­mem­ber ev­ery Tues­day and Thurs­day morn­ing is cof­fee time at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre. Come and have a cof­fee and a chat with your neigh­bors. Pool ta­bles are avail­able, as are shuf­fle­board and card games. On Novem­ber 16, there will be a movie and pizza night at the Drop In, start­ing at 5 p.m. Mark it on your cal­en­dar.

Art ses­sions have re­sumed at the Delia school on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noons from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Ev­ery­one is wel­come, bring your paints and brushes and come join the group for con­ver­sa­tion and fun, just a nice af­ter­noon out, and you get to paint your fa­vorite project.

Mark your cal­en­dar for the Christ­mas Bazaar which will take place at the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Satur­day, Novem­ber 10. The Delia li­brary will have their bake sale at the bazaar and are look­ing for bak­ing do­na­tions. They al­ways have a great sale with lots of va­ri­ety. Hope they have those mini sour cherry pies again- to die for!!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Mike An­der­sen who just cel­e­brated his 91st birth­day. Way to go Mike! Nancy Stiles had a birth­day on Oc­to­ber 23 and Harry Thomp­son will be a year older on Oc­to­ber 26.

Get well soon wishes from the com­mu­nity go out to Johnathan Raessler, who is a pa­tient in the Foothills Hospi­tal in Cal­gary. Johnathan has had surgery and is do­ing quite well and is in good spir­its.
