Film Crew
A Versa Films crew spent two days in Borden, including eight locals in the production cast.

BORDEN — Versa Films were in Borden on April 23 and 24 with director Dylan Hrychuk to film segments of a video, transforming St. John’s Anglican Church into a Catholic Church. Eight local people acted as churchgoers, including yours truly.

The local actors had to change outfits three times throughout the day, wearing vintage clothing, jewelry and purses. The main characters came from the city on both days. On Sunday, a local house in Borden with a vintage bedroom was used for filming along with the owner's vintage car. A vintage police car was also used.

The film crew supplied the meals throughout the day and provided many and varied props.

The Borden Friendship Club held their final bingo of the season April 20 with more than 30 in attendance from Borden, Radisson and Langham and the city. Winning the cash bingos were Joyce Olzewski (two), Colleen Dear (two), Bev Hrynuik, Gerry Waiwright, Cathy Herman, Ed Rawlyk and Carlye Saunders. Winning the blackout was Ken Bury.

The Borden Museum held their spring banquet April 23, with more than 60 in attendance to enjoy an old-fashioned community picnic cold plate supper. The Community Centre was decorated with pictures of yesteryear depicting the growth of Borden. On the tables were live plants, candy dishes and bags of popcorn for appetizers and the stage and piano were decorated with live plants and picnic supplies. The 50/50 draw of $120 was won by Doreen Flath of Radisson.

MC Ruben Rempel told a few jokes and stories throughout the evening and introduced the museum board – Karen Kerr, Heather Penner, Heather Deck, Stewart and Eleanor Walton, Elaine Gunsch, Brenda Tumbach and Martha and Ruben Rempel, thanking them for an excellent meal. A slide show depicting the photos on the wall was shown with narrator Ruben and at 7:30 p.m. the silent auction closed and everyone who bid on the more than 30 items paid and gathered their purchases to take home.
