Borden and Radisson News: Quilting club awards raffle prizes

BORDEN/RADISSON ‑ The Radisson Cotton Pickin’ Quilters congratulate winners of their recent raffle ‑ Laureen (Parker) Kari of Biggar, Shirley Neufeld of Saskatoon and Barb Leschyshyn of Radisson. The quilters, who meet Wednesday afternoons in the Radisson Lutheran Church, thank everyone for their support.

Hylke van der Wal of Radisson returned recently from Nepean, Ont. with a silver medal earned at the Canadian Masters Athletics National Championships. His event was in cross-country running in which there were 15 participants – two women and 13 men.

The Borden Friendship Club held their Christmas supper in the Borden Community Centre Dec. 9, with 62 members and guests. The turkey dinner was catered to by the BCCPC, and the meal was blessed by Ruben Rempel. Tables and walls of the Community Centre were tastefully decorated by Brenda Tumbach and her committee.

Following the meal everyone was entertained for over an hour by BJ and Friends featuring Bill Johnson, his wife Vi, Sam Bueckert, Charles Peters and his wife Ruth and Jim Andres. The songs included 12 Days of Christmas Ukrainian style, with props ‑ sour cream, borscht, 4x2 slab, kielbasa and garlic cloves. Sam yodeled for Christmas is a Favourite Time of Year and everyone joined in a few Christmas songs.
