Borden and District News: Farmers market hosts Xmas sale Nov. 25

Threshermen ready to host demo Sept. 30.

BORDEN — Correction for Borden Farmers Market Christmas sale – the Christmas market is Saturday, Nov. 25 in the Borden Community Centre from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There are 27 vendors booked, with lunch available in the Seniors’ Room.

The Borden Lions Club held a startup barbecue for the 2023-224 season on Sept. 22 at the acreage of George and Jan Sparks northwest of Borden. Burgers and buns were supplied by the club and everyone brought salads or desserts. The 27 present enjoyed the great variety and after the meal, time for visiting. A big thanks go to Jan and George for hosting the event.

The Borden Threshermen’s Club were busily loading sheaves onto hay racks Sept. 25, in preparation for Threshing Day on Sept. 30. The two racks were pulled by Ruben Rempel with his half-ton truck and the other one by Aaron Wensley driving his 1948 MMU tractor. Helping to load the bearded wheat sheaves were Willard and Don Wensley, Mel Brooke, Stew Walton, Ed Neufeld, Roy Wright and Les Saunders.

The gates at the site two miles north of the Borden Cemetery open at 10 a.m. Sept. 30. The cook car will serve up soup, bread/buns and beverages. There will be various demonstrations then the threshing will begin at 2 p.m. Later on, you can drive into Borden and enjoy a roast beef supper in the Community Centre from 4:30 – 7 p.m., with the doors on the east side of the centre (Seniors’ Room) open at 4 p.m. Don’t forget to drop in at the museum across the street. It is open from 3 – 6 p.m. that day.
