MEOTA — The haying weather looks like it has come to a stop for a while, so those who got their hay tied up before the rains, are happy. However, driving north from Meota, there are some large fields that are cut and will deteriorate in the wet weather, which is a shame. It's good to see many of the ditches cleaned up which helps with snow control.

July 28 found 20 seniors playing golf again. The outright winners were Larry Dyck, Michel Hardy, Louise Goodheart, Lawrie Ward and Janice Morton. The weather was ideal and happy times prevailed. The course is in fine shape; green everywhere and the flower pots are in bloom.
Friday evening, July 29 found only two tables in play for Canasta at the Do Drop In. Top score went to Vern Iverson and Donna Lambert, second place were their opponents Marion Ottas and Stella Rendle. This just goes to show how busy people are in the summer, with company and visiting, as we had five tables last week.
The reconstruction of the Iffley Road began Aug. 2, starting at Highway 4 to the eastern boundary of the RM of Meota. One lane of traffic will remain open but it is hoped people will use alternate routes.
