Mayfair and District News: Live theatre brings Speers alive

Shrove Tuesday pancakes served up in Speers Feb. 21.
Near Blythe, Calif. real estate is for sale. No, the town isn’t a dump but any carpenter with good skills could turn this place into a palace. What would this new business be called?

MAYFAIR — Colleen Wicks from nearby Speers requested that I mention some happenings fast approaching, so please mark your calendars. Speers United Church is having a Shove Tuesday pancake supper Feb. 21 staring at 5 p.m. This is a good will offering at the door.

The same church is planning a fundraising raffle for a catered gourmet supper for eight prepared in your own home or elsewhere by local chef Jenna Gall. Driving proximity about one hour from Hafford. Tickets can be purchased from almost anyone in Speers costing $10 each or three for $25. Draw date is Feb. 26.

Live Theatre will make this prairie community come alive again in the spring March 31, April 1 and 2. Tickets are $40 each and come on sale March 1. These can be obtained by giving Colleen a shout at 306-246-2165. The event is sponsored by the United Church and the local recreation centre.

Our community was saddened to hear on the recent passing of Glenda Hyndman of Spiritwood. Condolences to husband Dave and families. Dave had a column and wrote news for the Spiritwood Herald up to about three years ago then retired his pen.

Hoping for a slow melt of snow to the end of March because farmers will be getting the itch to start seeding the end of April. Yup winter is slowly disappearing as we eagerly await warmer days to come.
