The Borden Farmers Market wrapped up their summer and fall season Oct. 8, with presentations made to deserving individuals. For the last market there were eight vendors with their products. There was baking brought by Eileen Petrun and Marie Polischuk, honey from Cornucopia Honey, Tupperware by Joyce Olzewski, jams, jellies and crafts by Karen Kerr, vegetables brought in by Rachel Sutherland, pumpkins sold by Ruben and Martha Rempel and hotdogs sold by L. Olinyk with helper Bev Assman.
The drinks were free and a table of wrapped goodies was free for appreciation day.
The 50/50 was won by Carol Epp of Langham.
Karen Kerr made presentations from the farmers market: a gift card to Gary Palmer for always putting up the tables every week and cleaning; cash gifts to BJ Berg and Ross McBain for pulling out the large signs to the entrance of Borden on the east and west end of the service roads. L. Olinyk gave a donation to Borden Fire and Rescue from sales of hot dogs.
The market is taking bookings for the Christmas sale on Saturday, Nov. 27 in the Borden Community Centre. The group will decide in November if it will go ahead depending on COVID-19 restrictions.
St. John’s Anglican Church was tastefully decorated for Thanksgiving Sunday and a great job was done by Brenda, Sharon, Rosann and Sandy, with pumpkins donated by the Threshermen’s Club. The decorations will be left up for one more Sunday for attendees to enjoy.
