Churches choose safety over tradition this Christmas

Borden and Radisson News

Borden United Church and St. John’s Anglican Church have decided to not have any services on Nov. 29 and there will be no services in December. It will be a quiet Christmas this year with no services and especially with no Christmas Eve or White Gift services. The United Church members are still gathering mitts, scarves, socks and toques to go to the Lighthouse and you can contact Pamela Pidwerbesky at 306-827-2071 or drop donations off at Affinity Credit Union, Borden.

Congratulations to Savannah Sutherland, daughter of Scott and Sonia Sutherland of Borden, who has been awarded a full track scholarship to the University of Michigan. Savannah, who attends Grade 12 at Bishop Mahoney High School in Saskatoon, is a two-time Sask Sport female junior athlete for the year and has done well on the national track scene in hurdles and dashes along with relay races for Saskatchewan.

Along with her schooling, Savannah worked out all summer at the outdoor track in Dalmeny and through the winter works out five days a week at the field house and twice weekly at the gym.

For 2021, she will be getting ready for National Collegiate Athletic Association track and field event in Michigan and eventually she plans to get into medical school. Savannah had a few universities interested in signing her, but after a series of Zoom calls she chose Michigan.
