The Wawota Public Library had their final day for the summer reading program. Iris Wilson was the winner for the pre-reader category and Ethan Weber was the top reader.
The museum kids' days are over for this year. On Aug. 16, there were only three children present, and they learned about pioneer days. Lunch was bread with jam and honey.
The final day was Aug. 23, which was filled with lots of games. The favourite of the 12 children attending was musical chairs. What a great wind-up and what a great bunch of kids.

The final meeting of the Heritage Committee was held at the Village Inn on Aug. 29. Overall it was a great day, beautiful weather and good attendance. The gymkhana and children's events were busy and the fireworks and cabaret were enjoyed. I was part of the committee and appreciated the eight other members who each worked hard in their areas to produce a first-class event.
Happy 85th birthday to my sister, Nola Mowbray on Sept. 1.
