Harvest a couple weeks behind in Mayfair area

Mayfair News

Crops in the Mayfair and Rabbit Lake area are about two weeks later than the Battlefords, so one can expect to be harvesting in late October or even early November. Darkness arrives early and evenings are cool.

A friend to many Mayfair folks passed away in late August. Evelyn (Roger) Clavelle was 73. Their neighbours were Mary Puto and Marlene and Jack Pool, residing closer to the Hafford area. Three years ago, Clavelles relocated to a small town east of Saskatoon. Condolences to the family. Evelyn was involved in many Catholic church groups and will be missed.

Oh, no! No fall or fowl suppers in communities because of COVID-19. For many seniors it was a nice outing and a chance to rekindle old acquaintanceships. Now we will have to wait until 2021.

Celebrating a 95th birthday is a special occasion and so it was for my neighbour, Henry Konopelski. A small family supper on was hosted Sept. 13 and a social distancing come-and-go tea Sept. 14 at Rabbit Lake Senior Sunrise Circle.  Happy birthday, Henry.

Rabbit Lake Senior Sunrise Circle is now open for coffee Monday, Wednesday and Friday, a good social outing.

It is time to close up cabins and camping is coming to an end as many parks have closed their gates for another year. With the pandemic, camping became a popular outdoor family pastime.

Many gardeners have been satisfied with an abundance of vegetables that have been produced. Some individuals like to share, so a big thank you for your generosity. Zucchini anyone?
