Gathering for cards, other games and visiting is once again being enjoyed by area seniors.

MEOTA ‑ The Meota Seniors were hosted by the Edam Seniors Nov. 25 for fellowship and games. It felt good to see our friends again, face to face, to reminisce and visit. Former Meota resident Jack Stewart was there, from the Edam Manor and we were pleased to see him looking so well. He was happy to see all of us. The nice weather made it an especially nice day to be out and about.

Services were held in the United/Anglican Church again Nov. 28, with Rev. Kim and will be continuing, next on Dec. 5 at 1:30 p.m.

A week of nice weather is always welcome, just hold off the rain. Other parts of the world are surely having terrible problems and we can be so thankful to get what we're getting. 

In the winter issue of Prairies North, it was most interesting to read the story behind Table Mountain near North Battleford, and the folks who got it up and running. Having started 50 years ago, today it is the top ski hill in the province and one local folks are proud of because it was no easy task creating it. They will celebrate their 50th anniversary in the 2022-23 ski season.

Taber, Alta. went ahead and held their annual two-day craft sale Nov. 20 and 21 with the proceeds of the rent going to their library. There were 48 tables and the craft people were happy to get out with their wares and to visit one another after a couple years' absence. 

Tuesday afternoon in the Pioneer Hall the bridge players got together. There were three tables with top score going to Catriona Winterholt and Donna Scherman. Second were Lucille and Bernard Gregoire. Some regular players have gone south while a few new ones showed up. On Thursday, evening there were three tables with top score going to Jean Lawes and Fraser Glen followed by Gerry Craig and Albert Blais. Throughout the winter these games will be played in the afternoons as it gets dark so early.

When it rains in Alberta, they may not get floods but they do get ice. There were seven semi trailers off the road in the Red Deer area when my grandson travelled north and had to detour around that section of Highway 2. There was a loaded logging truck in the ditch south of Glaslyn Thursday morning, but was still upright.

Norwegian whist was played in the Do Drop In Nov. 26, at noon, with three tables in play. Top score went to Bev McCrimmon, followed by Eric Callbeck and Arlene Walker. 

I hope everyone enjoyed the great curling that took place last week, so near by. You will soon be able to practice some of those good shots that you saw the participants make. Enjoy your winter sports.
