48 members enjoy Friendship Club potluck

Borden and Radisson News: Friday farmers market continues, with 50/50 draws and fresh produce

The Borden Friendship Club hosted their monthly potluck Aug. 25 in their club room with 48 out to enjoy the evening.

Decorated cakes were made by E. Petrun to acknowledge August birthdays celebrated by Eleanor Walton, Cheryl Larner, Audrey Baker, Gerry Penner, George Abbott and Ed Rawlyk. After cake and ice cream were served, Ruben Rempel told a few jokes and then introduced the entertainment – Neil and Nancy Stubbs, who have been entertaining seniors for more than 26 years.

Before COVID-19 they did 130 shows a year. In 2021 they have performed 21 shows, all outdoors. Borden was the first indoor show. Neil plays keyboard, saxophone, violin, guitar and accordion and Nancy plays the tambourine, while both sing. For all of the songs shared, Neil had recorded background music on a computer tablet.

Next supper for the Friendship Club is Sept. 29 with a meal and entertainment.

Winning the farmers market 50/50 draw Aug. 27 was Marie Polischuk from Radisson. Winners of the Borden Museum raffle draw were: quilt made by Doreen Matschke - Peter Barkman of Borden; painted rock on a stand donated by George Walker - Jason and Donna Walton of Warman; and grain bin sketch by Karen Kerr - Alfred Gunsch of Borden.
