It is so dry everywhere that the County of Stettler has a complete fire ban on along with many places in the province. We certainly need a good rain.

Don’t forget crib at the Seniors Centre on Wednesday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. as well as games night Thursday nights and Canasta on Friday afternoons. It is not necessary to be a senior to come out and enjoy.

Lots of harvesting is taking place in our region so we wish all the farmers good luck and happy harvesting.
