After the rain, we all need sunshine

Rain, rain and more rain was the story last week when the district received about three inches of rain. The prairie sod is soaked up and fields are saturated. The sloughs are full, creeks are running and low spots in the fields drowned out. With some sunshine, things should really grow now and the mosquitoes will no doubt thrive.

Several members of the Wild Rose Explorers RV Club from various points in Alberta and B.C. spent the weekend in Endiang camping. This is their fourth visit to Endiang.
