This weekend is Canada Day long weekend, so if you are planning on travelling at all for the long weekend, please drive carefully and have a fun and enjoyable break.

Today will be the last Floor Curling day until after harvest, so make sure you come on out and join in the game. The Floor Curling and the Carpet Bowling groups would like to thank everyone who attended for the past year and they are hoping everyone has a great summer. They hope to see everyone again when these groups will start up again.The dates for both these activities will be announced at a later date.

Mr. Cody Morris will be celebrating his birthday this Friday, June 30. Happy Birthday Cody, hope you have a great day.

Bingo evening will be on Wednesday, July 5, starting at 7:15 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m. So come on out and try out your luck, bingo evenings are every second Wednesday evening and will continue throughout the summer months.

The Old Tyme Dance committee would like to thank everyone who attended their dances the last Sunday of each month. They hope everyone will have a great summer and would love to see all members join them again when things restart the last Sunday of September. So if you have any questions please contact Doug Haustein at 403-742-3994 or John Blonski at 403-574-2197 and they will gladly answer all your questions and concerns.

Coffee is always on at the Senior Centre on Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m. and will continue throughout the summer months. So make sure you take a break now and then from your busy schedule and join your friends.

It is the rodeo season, so there are rodeos taking place throughout summer; make sure you get out and support your favourite cowboy or cowgirl.

Sympathy goes out to Maxine Hansel on the passing of her husband Joe Orn Hansel as he passed away peacefully on June 15.

To mourn his loss he leaves behind his wife Maxine, their children, and grandchildren, other family members and very close friends.

Our prayers and sympathy are with you all at this time.

I would like to wish everyone a fun and exciting Canada Day weekend. Drive safely.

Happy Birthday Canada!
