We got to enjoy another beautiful weekend and more opportunity to work outside on fall chores and harvest duties. I hope everyone’s work is getting closer to done.
Dariel McNaughton phoned last night to let me know that the History Book committee is progressing nicely. They will be having their next meeting on Oct. 27 at 7:30 in the Agri-Plex. If you have an interest in this, you are definitely welcome to attend.
The Trochu fall supper will be held on Friday, Oct. 24, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. so make sure you find your way over there for a great meal. It is a great way to take your wife and kids out for a filling meal, visit with friends and walk away with a full belly and money still in your pocket.
Our fall supper is fast approaching as well. It will be held on Saturday, Nov. 1 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The corner ladies are contacting everyone to bring a little something to contribute to the meal. It makes the whole meal like a great potluck with the variety of salads and desserts to go along with the turkey and potatoes. If you haven’t got a call yet and would like to bring something or help in some way, contact Mary Newton as she is our head chef for this meal. Thanks, Mary!
It won’t be long before the ice is in at the Agriplex, so curling will be underway for all levels. Keep in mind that Carol Wilkins is working at organizing a new league for seniors on Tuesday afternoons just for fun, so give her a call if that suits you. There is also super league, ladies’ league, mixed open league and junior curling, so lots of opportunity to enjoy the great game of curling. I might get heck for this but call Brooks and Jackie Watts at 403-368-2357 to sign up if you are interested.
I will close with my joke of the week, enjoy:
A duck goes into a furniture store and says ‘Got any duck food?’
The guy at the counter says, ‘Sorry, we don’t sell duck food’.
The little duck walks out.
The next day, same duck, same guy. ‘Got any duck food?’
‘Sorry little duck, I told you yesterday, no duck food here. ‘
The duck walks out.
Next day, again, ‘Got any duck food?’
The guy says ‘No! We don’t sell duck food and if you come in here again I’m gonna nail your feet to the floor!’
The duck walks out.
Next day, duck walks in. ‘Got any nails? ‘
The guy says ‘What?…No’.
‘Got any duck food?’
