After the parade is the Good Neighbour barbecue, which is hosted by the Evangelical Free Church at 6 p.m. Kids’ activities follow from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m., complete with a bouncy house. The drive-in movie begins at dusk, around 8:15 p.m. There is a concession on site. For all of this to be asuccess, we need volunteers to help out. Please phone Mark Higgins at 403-742-5191 or Sherry Marshall at 403-742-0602 in the evenings if you can volunteer.

Kayla Hronek participated in the Stettler Junior Rodeo and did very well. She won second in barrel racing, received her first goat-tying buckle and won third in the pole race. Congratulations Kayla.

Francien Verhoeven will begin art lessons on Thursday, Sept. 7 to 9 for kids, and Monday, Sept. 11 for adults. If you are interested you can phone her at 403-741-5977 for more information. Francien is a wonderful artist herself and has much to teach anyone interested.

Seniors’ crib begins on Wednesday, Sept. 6 in the Seniors Centre at 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to come and play and it is not necessary to be a senior to join in.

Harvest is underway in our area so many farmers are busy getting their crops in. Hope all goes well for them this year.
