ALIDA - Members of the Alida Rec. Board are planning another fundraiser for Dec. 2 at Alida Hall. It is the Lisette Dubuc Memorial Bingo Fundraiser with special games, cash and prizes, Chinese and silent auctions and beer gardens. Lisette was an amazing community member, was always there to help and this commitment was seen every Monday at the Alida Bingo. She has been greatly missed. Hope to see you there.   

Act One Productions are inviting all actors to attend the audition Dec. 6 at the hall. Interest will determine what play will make the final cut. Remember this performance will be held in honour of Lynette Peet, who had been extremely involved with our drama club. For more information, contact Diane Potapinski at 306-485-7853 or Shelly Cowan at 306-485-7023.   A

Redvers School held their commemoration of Remembrance Day at the school gymnasium on Nov. 9.  

There was a very nice crowd in attendance to watch the students participate in the ceremonies. Gray and I attended to not only watch our granddaughter and others participate in the program, but also to remember Gray’s uncle, Flt. Sgt. Wes Bailey, who had lost his life (along with most of his crew) in a night raid and was shot down near Legdan, Germany. We shall remember them. 

Tim, Shelly and Ainsley Cowan were in Minot from Nov. 11-13. They visited with her family, the Nilsen’s, and help them celebrate their Veterans’ Day.  

I wish to send congratulations to Sharla Hainsworth, who was able to attend and enjoy watching her son Kaiden Kermtopf play football for the Okanagan Sun against the Regina Thunder in the Canadian Bowl at Mosaic Stadium on Nov. 12. The Canadian Bowl is the final of the Canadian Junior Football League. The Okanagan Sun defeated the Regina Thunder in a well-played game.
