Winter time activities, including crib, return to community schedule

Harvest is progressing well, but it is a disappointing harvest this year with below average yields due to the cold spring, late frosts and severe drought. Hopefully next year will be better.

The Endmoor Drop-In Centre is getting geared up to start their fall and winter activities.

Crib meets are held twice a month, the first and third Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m.

The first one of the fall is set for Oct. 6 and it will begin with a potluck supper at 6 p.m., followed by the crib games. You don’t have to be a senior to join in the crib games, all are welcome.

Other activities planned are to go to a dinner show in Delia in November and have a seniors’ Christmas dinner in December.

The drop-in centre is in need of more folks to come out and join in the activities in order to keep the organization going. If anyone is interested in taking part call Eleanor Schultz at 579-2344 or Dave Nixon Sr. at 579-2467 for more information.

Get well wishes go out to Clifton Tucker, who is a patient in the Hanna hospital.
