Meota and District News: Citizens organize Remembrance Day service

Local senior honoured for longtime service.

MEOTA — Lest we forget, oh so true. As we relax in our easy chairs watching game shows on our large screen TV its convenient to put aside the horrors our fathers, brothers and uncles went through to maintain our freedom and relaxed way of life. One only has to tune in to CNN to bring the reality of war to the forefront.

Local Remembrance Day ceremony organizers were Charlie and Ann Baillargeon and Lawrie and Shirley Ward. Lawrie and Shirley arranged the lunch following the ceremony.

Linda Ard recently received a lifetime award from the provincial government for her many hours of dedicated service. Linda served many years on the Meota Do Drop In executive and also many years as regional director of the SSAI. Thank you for your dedication and diligence, Linda.

Special condolences this week go out to Larry and Carole Dyck with the loss of their daughter and to Wanda Robertson with the passing of her husband Dave.

Barbara Mitchel and Linda Killoran topped the scoreboard at bridge Tuesday. Second were Etta Miesner and Eric Callbeck. Thursday Afternoon Jean Lawes and Fraser Glen were first. Second were Gerry Craig and Mary Phelps. In B play, Mary Phelps and Gerry Craig were first.

Norwegian Whist winner was Carol Huys. Linda Ard was second an Albert Huys third. Friday afternoon canasta was won by Nestor Fransoo and Linda Ard. Second were Joyce Luckey and Bev McCrimmon and third were Kelly and Dave Sayers.
