As we move into June now, students will be preparing for their final exams and finishing up their remaining subjects before the 2014-15 school year comes to an end. Boy, this year ended quickly with the students getting out in about three weeks and getting anxious for their summer break. The Grade 5 students are also anxious to move on to another school (Stettler) as they head into Grade 6 for the next years term.

Some activities will be quickly ending quickly this coming month until after harvest in the fall. One of these activities will be the quilting club. So make sure you come and join them at the seniors’ centre on Monday, June 8, as they will be winding down their projects until fall sometime. This starts at 9:30 a.m. and everyone is welcome.

Another event that has ended now until fall is the seniors’ meeting. Their last meeting was held on Monday June 1, and they hope everyone has a great summer and hope to see everyone back in the fall.

Sunday June 28, will be the last Old Time Dance before it ends to for the summer months. So make sure you come out that afternoon, starting at 1:30 p.m. for a great time and dance to the music from the “Country Fiddle Band.” The theme for this dance will be Hawaiian, so dress accordingly.
