Former Cando farmer passes away

Baljennie News

Sympathy goes out to the Hirschfeld families on the recent passing of Rosemarie Hirschfeld of Battleford. Rosemarie and her husband Bill were active members of the Battleford Treasure Hunter’s Club for a number of years. They retired from their farm at Cando to Battleford, where they made their home until their passing. Their son, Brendt, and family still run the farm.

We just had a time change that has made a big difference in the TV programs until fall. Luckily Saskatchewan stays on the same time all year long.

We are well into the month of March and the weather has been pleasant in the area. The milder days have melted most of the snow. A few drifts are left and they are melting fast. With spring here, there seems to be a lot of wildlife about the town and city. Take care of your pets.

Ice fishing is near the end of the season, as ice shacks are being moved from the lakes by the end of the month. Care should be taken on any ice-covered areas as the surface can be thin and soft. It may look safe, but isn’t. Don’t take the chance. In our area the snowmobile season is over for this year.

The Kramer building on Highway 16 west of Battleford has been kept busy with the line up of vehicles going through as occupants get the COVID-19 vaccine, but there are no long waits. They ran out of vaccine and had to close for a few days.

Battleford West Place common room was closed for awhile. It is now open for five to six people from the building to meet and have coffee in the mornings. There is a jigsaw puzzle going again for anyone interested. Much of it has been assembled.

A bubble was formed at a Calgary curling rink for curlers to complete. The ladies’ 40th year of the Scotties Tournament was followed by the men’s Brier and then the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship, which is coming to a close. There is more curling to come.

Easter will soon be here. The school children will be off for a week. Just take care with celebrations, due to COVID-19 still on the go. Happy Easter to all my readers.
