WAWOTA - Thank you to those who purchased UNICEF posters for Halloween. Thirty-eight were sold and $380 was forwarded to UNICEF. Thank you also to Darren Olson who did the printing. Every year I hear some suggesting that the money should be used locally.
When you compare what our children in Wawota have to those in other parts of the world who don’t have homes or enough to eat and difficulty getting an education, the decision seems easy to support UNICEF.
Congratulations to the Wawota senior girls’ volleyball team, who had four straight wins at the district playoffs in Lemburg on Nov. 5. They will move on to regionals next weekend.
Sympathy to Shaun and Ashley Galger and family on the passing of her grandfather, Lorne McNarland.
He died on Oct. 28 at the long-term care palliative care unit in Moosomin. He was 85 years old. The funeral service will be on November 12th with interment in Kelwood Cemetery.
Neena and Daryl Johnson and Carey Lamoureaux travelled to Wawanesa, Man., last weekend and were on hand for the opening of Hanna Johnson's new business, Beauty.by.hanna.
Congratulations to Karlie Jackson, a former resident of Wawota, now residing in Nanton, Alta. She was the lucky winner in a provincial Ram Everyday Adventure Contest, and took home a Dodge Ram 1500 truck.
Visiting with Morley and Joan Hamilton last weekend were Morley's brother and sister-in -law, Roland and Ardith Hamilton of Winnipeg.
