The Great Plains Concert turned out to be a great event, 49 people came out to enjoy it! Both Saskia and Darrel sang and played. The most talked about song was when Saskia did a yodelling song.

They indicated that they would like to return next year so if you didn’t get to see them this time around, try to come out next year.

The couple had a nice collection of CD’s which a person could purchase from them.

 

Movie night

Last weekend, good old Mr. Winter decided to pay another visit! Traveling was difficult on Friday and Saturday, so attendance was down at the movie night held on Saturday.

The three energetic young ladies organising these events have some great ideas. Stay tuned for more family oriented events in the future.

 

Spring Fling Dance

Tickets are on sale for the Spring Fling Dance to be held on April 22 and can be purchased at Race Trac Gas and the Hungry Bear.

The price of the tickets is $15 per person and it should be a fun-filled evening with live music, concession and drinks.

 

Thrift Store

Judy has been busy organizing the Thrift Store and is accepting donations. Weather permitting, the predicted date of reopening for the season is April l. Come and check out the new treasures in there!

 

Crib tournament

Saturday, April 8th sounds like a busy day for sure! The Pioneer Center will be holding a crib tournament 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Entry fee is $10 and a light lunch will be provided.

 

Volunteer dinner

The volunteer appreciation dinner at the Community Hall is on that date also, dinner will be served at 5 p.m., don’t forget to RSVP closer to the date so that the appropriate amount of food will be ordered.

 

Elementary school

The students at the Elementary school have been very busy this winter.

The students in Grades 2-5 benefited from the generosity of the 100 Mile Nordic Trackers and had two sessions of cross country skiing. The intermediate girls teamed up with students from Eliza Archie school and had a fun day of basketball in a tournament being hosted at Horse Lake Elementary.

The school supported Pink Shirt Day and wrote kind messages on each other’s’ pink shirts. One of the neat things they do is take turns baking for the class each Friday.

All students enjoyed a fun time at the arena each week. Their skating skills have improved and everyone had a great time.

The students will be on spring break this week and the next.
