The annual Meewasinota Craft Sale was held July 7 in the Community Complex. 

Men’s night at the Meota Golf Course last week found 126 fellows having a great day.

July 13 found 120 golfers descend upon the Meota and District Lakeshore Golf Club for the annual Farmers / Ranchers Golf Tournament. The 18-hole scramble low score was 59, posted by the team consisting of Chad Olson, Derek Chapman, Jason Halter, Randy Sharp, Kyle Gregoire and Stan Bergen. Carole Chapman and Lyla Halter once again organized a terrific event that is consistently booked solid.

The Quinn family led the service at the United/Anglican Church on July 14 which was enjoyed immensely, with a good turnout.

The annual pasta night in Meota Community Complex is set for July 20. There will be good food and good entertainment for those who have their tickets. It is sold out.

On Tuesday, July 23, the Hobby Band will entertain at Harwood Manor at 2 p.m..

Dulpicate bridge was played in Meota, July 8, with top scores going to Jette and Terence Da Silva, Vern Iverson and Eric Callbeck, and Robert Iverson and Trudy Iverson. On July 9 in North Battleford, top scores went to Lori Stark and Jane Groves, Joeann and Rudy Wiens and Mary Greenwald and Anna Marie Waldbillig. No report for July 14.

I enjoyed a two-day trip to Beauval, July 10-12, with my daughter in law, Kelly. The scenery is so pretty and green and yellow, and the road through the forest is the best. On the way up we saw seven deer in the ditches, and two dead ones on the shoulder of the highway. Coming home we saw two bears and one cub and one deer we had to brake for. The fishing wasn’t so great on the Beaver River since it has risen a lot lately. Fishing at Green Lake was reported as still good.

Canasta was played July 12 at Do Drop In with five tables in play. Top score went to Yvonne McPherson and Linda Ard, second were Faye Goll and Rita Peterson and third were Paulette Neale and Evelyn Dutton. This is always a nice social event, lots of lunch and visiting.

The Childrens’ Wish Foundation held a children’s party in the Meota Regional Park, in the open area beyond the bathrooms, July 13, starting at noon. It was a fun fundraising time for all participants.

It was the annual weekend of motorbikes in town last week for Legion Riders veterans’ fundraising. They had a huge tent where they met for a catered supper followed by music. It’s always nice to see these folks having a good time. I couldn’t get a picture of the spread as they covered a whole block beside the community hall. 

Carrie and Neil Sandstrom are spending two weeks at the new building going up in Lakeview helping her dad in many ways. They got their boat in the water, too, so there’s some fun along with the work.
