Another successful Sunday breakfast was held Jan. 29 at the Alida Rink with kitchen group 3 at the helm.
They served 45 breakfasts to many faithfuls both locally and from neighbouring towns that attend most Sundays. It was great to see everyone enjoying these breakfasts. Way to go everyone, both in the kitchen and visitors. Up next it will be back to kitchen group 4 at the helm. Will they defeat their total in the kitchen.
Get well wishes to Darren Barrie, who suffered a stroke over the holidays. A donation sheet has been set up at the Alida Post Office to help with his expenses. The family extends their gratitude for all the generous donations that were passed onto Darren for his recovery. He is now receiving therapy at the Wascana centre in Regina.
The next event at the rink will be the annual oilmen’s and farmers’ bonspiel on Feb. 3 and 4. As of Jan. 29, there were eight teams registered. Up to 16 teams will be entered.
Also, the club is in the process of organizing a ladies’ bonspiel for Feb. 25. This bonspiel will be in honour of Lynette Peet, Lisette Dubuc and Elaine Purves, local women who loved this sport but were unfortunate to lose their battles against cancer. We’ll always remember them.
This bonspiel will only be six-end games and we’ll be watching for the best-dressed team. Also, there will be a Chinese auction held during the weekend – register by calling Margaret at 306-485-7245 by Feb. 20. See you at the rink. Good luck curlers.
