To start off Fire Prevention Week, the Borden Fire and Rescue held an open house and pancake breakfast by donation at the Borden Fire Hall on Sunday, Oct. 6. They had a great crowd out to enjoy the morning meal and the money raised will go to buy necessary equipment. Borden Fire and Rescue are holding a steak night at 5 p.m. Nov. 2, with silent auction. A Borden band, Putt Putt’s Garage, plays at 8 p.m., but the 250 tickets for the meal are all sold out. They are still collecting for the silent auction (on display at the Credit Union in Borden) and the proceeds from that will go to help a fellow firefighter Inga, who was hurt in a car accident recently. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her as she recovers in hospital.
More than 50 members of Borden and Radisson seniors clubs attended a supper and program at the Maymont Seniors Centre on Oct. 2, with 73 in attendance. A delicious meal was served of sausage, perogies, scalloped potatoes, carrots, salad and a great dessert. The 50/50 draw of $129 went to Robert Davidson. Door prizes were won by Ruben Rempel, Ivan Youchezin, Audrey Baker, John Petrun, Dianne Rawlyk, Anne Wardhaugh from Borden and, from Radisson, Kiat Teo, Gerald Wiebe and Gary Kirlenko. Entertainment for the evening was provided by John Archer playing guitar and Jeanette Beckham playing bass guitar, of North Battleford. Some of the tunes they sang were Momma Tried, I Wish I Was a Teddy Bear, George Jones , Don Williams and Travis Tritt songs, closing with a Gospel Medley. Eileen Petrun of Borden and Gerald Wiebe of Radisson thanked Maymont for the great meal and entertainment.
