The community is cheering on local men — Ron Caruthers, Eldon McCrindle, B. J. Smith and Jim Wasdal — as they participate in the Alberta 55-plus Winter Games in Calgary. They will be competing in the men’s hockey categories. Good luck, guys!

Thelma Keast had the top score at the Endmoor Drop-In Centre’s crib night on Tuesday, while Irene Brooker posted the second-best score.

Congratulations also to the grandparents Bob and Janet Campbell and Les and Linda Hutton.

Joe and Beth Knowles returned home Thursday from a wonderful family vacation to California. They were accompanied by their three daughters (Loretta, Carmen and Deanna) and sons-in-law and their nine grandchildren. The group enjoyed such sites at Disneyland, Universal Studios, Newport Beach and Sea World.

The two family members celebrating their birthdays while on vacation, included Carmen’s 40th birthday and Deanna’s husband, Glenn.

An equine-related trip took Ruth Fowler to Toronto for most of last week. Ruthie’s Roost café was closed in her absence.

Several folks from the district took in Saturday night entertainment at neighbouring communities — the Ben Crane concert in Scapa and the seafood supper and comedy night in Halkirk — reporting a good time.

Gordie and Roxy Gallagher arrived home on Sunday from an enjoyable time in Jamaica. They were accompanied on the trip by their daughter and son-in-law Kelly and Trevor Kingcott of Hanna. B. J. Smith drove Roxy’s school bus in her absence.
