Meota and District News: Locals plan trip to Hostfest in Minot

Meota Lakeshore Lions appreciate support of bottle drive.
The community appreciates the efforts of Mary Shury in producing a printed monthly calendar of events.

MEOTA — Here we are well into harvest and it is good to see many fields have been harvested. The recent showers have slowed progress, but it bodes well for spring moisture.

We must take time to thank Mary Shury for restarting the Meota monthly bulletin of “What’s Happening.” It takes a concentrated effort to provide us with this calendar of events and to give us much-appreciated humour with her jokes. Kudos to Mary.

As we approach Sept. 27, we find our Scandinavian contingent planning for their annual trek to Minot, N.D. For the Hostfest. It’s within a day's drive for good wholesome entertainment.

Our loyal Sask Roughrider fans were given an appreciated hard-fought game against the Blue Bombers in the Labour Day Classic to provide us with a win. What was looking to be a dismal season with key injuries is giving us room to cheer.

The fall Lions bottle drive yielded good returns. Thanks to all who contributed so the Lions can continue with their community projects. The current project is a preschool children’s playground.

The seniors held their first meeting of the season chaired by Vivianne Lesko. It was decided to hold Norwegian Whist on alternate Wednesdays in the afternoon. This is in unison with the Norwegian Social Club. The shuffleboard season will commence in October. A recent private function was hampered by a non-functioning air conditioner. Repairs are underway with the guidance of Bob Zurowski. There will be a flu clinic held at the Do Drop In Oct. 23 in the morning.

Tuesday bridge saw Linda Ard and Donna Scherman win first. Second were Anne Crozier and Verne Iverson. In Thursday evening bridge, first was scored by Verne Iverson and David Sharpe. In second were Marg Dyck and David Creegan. Third were Fraser Glen and Jean Lawes.

Thursday morning golf had 27 people out on a beautiful morning. The consolation team was Louise Goodheart, Norman Northcott, Julliette Tebay and Eric Callbeck. Winners of the morning were Jerry Goodheart, Janice Morton, Laurie Ward and John Patterson. The windup tournament will be Sept. 21 at 10 a.m.

Winners of Friday afternoon canasta were: first - Bev McCrimmon and Marion Ottis; second - David Sayers and Linda Ard.
