Wow, I do believe fall is here. I think it was the first real frost that did it! Did you notice how quickly the leaves started changing colours overnight and that the rose hips are bright red and ready for picking?
Many of the fall activities are also starting up, there may be a few you are interested in mark your calendars.
School in session
The new school session has started and there are several new faces with 28 children enrolled. A big welcome goes out to the new teacher Nika de Kok and the new education assistants Dawn Jorgenson and Bonnie Robinson.
This week is called Spirit Week with different fun activities planned for each new day. The students will be participating in the Terry Fox run on Sept. 21 at 1:15 p.m., principal Kristy extends an invitation to all community residents to join in if interested.
The Community Club has their meeting planned for Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Community Hall.
We are actively seeking new members and the cost of joining is very reasonable at $5 per year. Sometimes difficult decisions have to be made and it would be nice to get other opinions and ideas. One of those decisions we dealt with very recently was the opening of the arena, do we do it or not? It was decided that we will give it one more try anyways for this next coming year. The ice will be ready to go in when some regular maintenance gets done first and some cleanup.
Here’s hoping for a successful season this year!
The OAPO has made plans to have their turkey dinner on Saturday, Sept. 22.
