WAWOTA - Congratulations to the Wawota Parkland School senior girls’ curling rink, who advanced to the provincial playdowns in Langham.
Members of the team were Emma Bunz, Sydney Dorrance, Rachel Wilson, Kaylee Mudrewich and Olivia Makelki. Coaches were Duane Lamontagne and Brayden Stewart. They had a respectable 1-2 record.
Christian and Nadja Schleinger, Levin and Aiden travelled to Switzerland to visit with family and friends. They spent two weeks there. It was a most enjoyable trip as it has been almost four years since their last journey.
Ross and Donna Petterson have returned home after spending the month of February at Shawinigan Lake, B.C. Although the weather wasn't great, they enjoyed associating with Alex and Maureen McIsaac, who were at Qualicum Beach. They also visited with Kevan and Hyacinth Sears. (Kevan is a former pastor at the Wawota Free Methodist Church).
Shannon Houff and her mother Francis Tulik enjoyed a holiday to Yuma, Ariz.
Deb Saville also spent some in Yuma. She also spent some time visiting with Harold and Jane Laich.
Sympathy to Gisele Holloway and family on the passing of her nephew, Ryan Revet of Brandon. He died on March 8 at the age 19. He leaves his parents Gerard and Angela Revet and brother Adam. His funeral service was held on March 14.
The World Day of Prayer was celebrated at the Wawota United Church on March 5. The prayers and program were prepared by the women of Taiwan. I especially enjoyed it as we have family from there.
March 12 was a busy time in Wawota. There was a hockey game in the afternoon and the ice carnival Color My World was presented by the local skaters who got to show off their talents in the evening.
The Wawota United Church's Time and Talent was also held in the evening. It included a beef supper and a live and silent auction. An online auction ended at noon on Sunday.
