The cemetery at Meota was established in May 1912 when the land was donated by Maude M. Tobey (wife of LeRoy Tobey). It consists of approximately six acres. This information is taken from the village records. The new columbarium was installed Nov. 30, 2020, and consists of 24 niches. Contact the Meota village office for additional information.

The Meota Golf Course was the place to be on Thursday morning last week when they held their weekly mixed seniors’ Texas scramble game. Since I’m not a golfer, and only drive the cart, I had never seen such an arrangement before. I thoroughly enjoyed the morning and the people in the group that my daughter Joyce, from Wetaskiwin, Alta. was with. She enjoyed it also.

The farmers market is in place Saturday mornings across from the concession, so keep that in mind for fresh vegetables as they become ready.
