On Monday, Aug. 28 the school was open for registration for new students to the community. The principal, Mike Flieger can be reached at 403-741-9966. Regular academic session starts on Tuesday, Sept. 5 after the long weekend. Hopefully all students and staff have had a restful summer break and are ready to hit the books again.

Make sure all seniors in our little committee come out to the first monthly meeting on Thursday, Sept. 7 at noon. As usual, it will start with a potluck luncheon at first, with the meeting to follow right after. Please bring one of your favourite dishes with you to share at the luncheon. These meetings are open to all seniors and we’re hoping there will be a good turnout this year.

The first Quilting Day will be held on Monday, Sept. 11 at 9:30 a.m. at the Senior Centre and they are hoping all quilters will join them. Even if you’ve never quilted before please join them, they would love to teach you.

With fall almost here again, the Old Tyme Club will be restarting up on Sunday, Sept. 24 at 1:30 p.m. For more information, please call Doug Haustein at 403-742-3994, or John Blonski at 403-574-2197.

Don’t forget coffee time is always on Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and Floor Curling is every Thursday at 1 p.m., so make sure you come on out and have a bit of fun.
