The community was saddened to learn of the death of Debbie Tateson on Dec. 6 at 48 years old. We extend sympathy to her husband Arnie, son Matt and all her extended family. She fought a valiant and lengthy battle with cancer with dignity and will be sadly missed by all who knew her. Debbie will long be remembered for her cheerful personality.

Her funeral will be held Friday at 1 p.m. at the Hanna United Church, with interment at the Endiang cemetery.

We wish the newlyweds all the best and welcome Yvette to our community.

The local floor curlers held their Christmas party on Sunday at the Endiang hall. They all enjoyed a turkey dinner with all the trimmings and an afternoon of floor curling and visiting, along with many prize draws. They were joined by former members of the club on the festive occasion.

Congratulations go out to Donnie and Blanche Johnson, who celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary this month.
