Borden and District News: Mother’s Day brunch draws a full house

Friendship Club supports flower barrel planting project.

BORDEN — The Borden Lions held a Mother’s Day brunch May 12 in the Borden Community Centre with over 100 out to enjoy a great meal and support the Lions, with the profits going to Diabetes Sask. A Mother’s Day basket filled with gift certificates and many other useful items (value $200) went to Lorraine Lajoie of Borden.

The Borden Friendship Club held their business meeting May 8, with the new executive taking over – president Sandi long, vice-president Ed Neufeld, secretary Brenda Tumbach and treasurer Florence Neufeld. Bev Assman gave a final bingo report stating the club had a net profit of $730 thanks to all who attended.

The Diefenbaker Daze parade on June 1 was discussed with the museum, threshermen and seniors’ clubs having a people wagon. It will be decorated on May 31 and there were volunteers to ride on it.

The club donated $250 to the flower barrels that are put up around town. Brenda and her crew plant more than 50 and plan to buy a few new barrels to replace the rotting wooden ones.

The club also donated $150 to the Lions kiddie cars for painting, renovating and decals. When we have an event, Bev Assman volunteered to record the number attending and the amount in the donation box.

For the June 7 supper, BJ and Friends will entertain. June 12, members are invited to Radisson with Ukrainian Connection playing. Lorraine Olinyk is taking names of attendees and needs to know this coming week.

The club is not having a May 30 potluck supper, but June 27, Aven Grace will entertain. July 25 there will be a hamburger/hotdog supper at 5:30 p.m. on the patio in back of the Community Centre and there will be games to play. Members will bring salads and the club pays for the meat and buns.

The next business meeting is June 12 at 2 p.m. and there are no business meetings in July or August.

The village office has a new look as it has been completely redone on the outside with new siding replacing the painted boards and the roof was re-shingled not too long ago.

Winning the 50/50 draw at the Borden Farmers Market May 9 was Donna Ridgewell. There were more people in for lunch but buyers were scarce. With warmer weather it is hoped that attendance will improve over the coming months as it is discouraging for the many vendors not to make their table rent.
