We're sorry to see Tim and Brenda Hamilton leave our town. They moved to Moosomin this past week. Gwen Hirtle has purchased their house on Walter Street.
Two provincial banners were received at Wawota Parkland School, which honored the senior golfing team and the senior curling team. The senior golfing team was awarded a gold banner. This team consisted of four golfers from the southeast, including Kerr Cudmore.
The senior curling team also won gold. This team included Jordan Dorrance, Emma Bunz, Sydney Dorrance, Kayla Mudrewich and Avrielle Brehaut. What a great year.

The town of Wawota was a busy place over the weekend. June 10 there was a girls' night out at the Wawota Hotel. June 11 saw our popular town-wide garage sale. There were 41 sale sites and lots of customers and visiting.
June 11 and 12 were the Fairmede Fair. June 11 included the 4-H Beef day, horse show and judging of the exhibits. The following day included a church service and community lunch. And people ask, "What is there to do in small towns?"
Sympathy to Bernie Williamson and family on the passing of her twin brother, Barry Fribance. He passed away on June 5 in Saskatoon. So tragic that Bernie has lost two brothers in less than a month.
The congregation at the Wawota United Church celebrated two important events on June 12. It was the celebration of Trinity Sunday and the 97th year of the formation of the United Church. The United Church was formed in 1925 when the Methodists, Congregationalists and a large group of Presbyterians joined together to become the United Church of Canada.
