MAYFAIR — A wedding I attended this past weekend was truly beautiful as former neighbour girl, Brandi Lamontagne tied the knot with Derrick Bassa from southern Manitoba. Her parents are Rick and Pam from Whitkow. There were invited quests from British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Manitoba and our province. Good wishes for a long, healthy, happy married life together.

The Parkland Predators girls’ softball team from Shell Lake were able to bring home some hardware this past weekend in a tournament in Saskatoon. After going undefeated in the round robin provincial tournament, they met up with the Southeast Sun Devils from Estevan competing for the gold medal, but were unsuccessful. The tired but still happy girls came home sporting silver medals. Now the team is off to the western finals in Winnipeg Aug. 4 to 7. This team consists of players from Shell Lake, Shellbrook, Big River, Debden, Spiritwood and Rabbit Lake. Our local girl is Kallie, daughter of Crystal and Danny Wright from Rabbit Lake. Way to go team and all the best three weeks from now.
