The new fence at the cemetery was built in cooperation between the County of Paintearth, who did the brushing on the perimeter, the Village who paid for the materials and Shawn and Staci Charbonneau who provided the labour to build the fence. The work was completed by Thursday, Sept. 1. It wasn’t built to keep out either two or four legged visitors.

Evening begins with a potluck supper at the Hall; Dec. 4 – Elks will be hosting the annual “Breakfast with Santa” pancakes and all the trimmings served from 9–11 a.m. A food gift for the Castor food bank would be appreciated. Don’t forget your camera for pictures with Santa.
