Library hosting a photo contest

Mayfair News

Apologies for the reporting of “fake news” about the Mayfair post office robbery approximately a month ago. I received the news from another person, who claimed it was true, but I should have taken the time to call our postmistress. Our post office was not a victim of crime.

Mayfair Library will be running a photo contest in the spring at the craft and bedding plant sale, probably the end of May or early June. Entries should be 5” by 7” and the categories are nature, animals, people and holidays. The contest is open to everyone.

A Smart Workshop hosted Jan. 11 at the hall by Sylvia Ruedger was well attended. Participants gained knowledge about activating their energy system through learning a stress chart. On canvas, they created works of art by tapping into their “positive” energy. The workshop ran from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on an extremely cold day.

Mayfair’s All Saints Catholic Church did their caroling the first week in January for two days. They visited approximately 22 houses, which included Rose Gill Lodge, a senior’s home in Rabbit Lake. The seniors enjoyed the Christmas music. In fact, they love having any entertainer sharing his/her talent. There have been four openings in this privately run facility for the last couple of months. There is nothing like country living with its fresh air. The facility is animal friendly and features many sitting rooms and delicious meals at  reasonable prices.

Condolences to the Spence family, which includes Geraldine, Kelly and Bonnie, on the death of their brother, 62-year-old Danny of Speers and North Battleford. Danny attended Mayfair School and comments on FaceBook indicate he was a wonderful and thoughtful friend. His unexpected passing Jan. 22 was a shock. The well-attended funeral was held this past Monday at Western Development Museum.

Rabbit Lake’s snowmobile rally is scheduled for the first Saturday in March They always host an excellent rally with superb runs, food and entertainment. Mark your calendars and purchase tickets from Brenda Aumock, Shirley Price and Joan Dzialo at Rabbit Lake Hotel just to mention a few ticket sellers.
