On June 12, there was a small gathering for an outdoor church service at the Dannevirke Cemetery grounds at 11 a.m., with Rev. Michelle Moore officiating in celebration of the 99th anniversary of the Dannevirke Lutheran Church and Cemetery. It was formed in 1923 and built in 1925. They also acknowledged the new gazebo which is built on the original church site.
Following the service, a delicious luncheon was provided. There was lots of visiting and reminiscing of many of the good old days held at this site. It was a great morning and afternoon. Great appreciation goes out to the board members for organizing this event. Attending from Alida area were Alan and Kathy.
The flower pots on Centre Street are all planted and that’s beginning to make a beautifully-coloured floral row down the middle of the street.
Once again appreciation goes to those who sponsored a pot and are taking care of it. It does make a difference and beautify our little town.
Jeff Cowan spent the evening of June 10 and part of June 11 visiting with his parents Gray and Edel, as well as with friends Grant and Jenny before he had to head back to Regina. His time is always too short but it’s still nice to see his face and reacquaint with his dog Navy.
It’s hard to believe that we are almost in the middle of June already. Before one knows it the schools will be holding year-end outings, field meets and getting ready for the Grade 12 graduations, some of which are held at the end of the month. It is also the baseball season – lots of activity for the outdoors. Good luck to all those who are busy outside.
It is Father’s Day on June 19. Happy Father’s Day to all dads, grandpas and uncles. You deserve a day off.
