We had the pleasure of see some very cute and some scary costumes this past Saturday on All Hallows Eve. Still have candy left over so if you are passing by come and get a bag full so I don’t eat it. Now my sons’ favorite season starts, hunting season. I hope everyone has good luck with filling their tags and, as farmers and landowners, I hope everyone who travels across your land is respectful.
I sadly have to pass on to our community the news of Ken Couturiers passing. He had been in hospital for some time now and the family held a very nice service at the graveside on this past Saturday honoring his life and all that he contributed to our community. He leaves to mourn a wonderful, big family who will miss him dearly.

The 4-H Beef club is having their weigh day on November 15 so if this club would interest you and your children, give the Holowaths a call to get signed up. 4-H is one of the best rural organizations we have going, it teaches the kids so much, it is definitely worth considering if you want to get your kids into a good club.
Have a great week.
