Local cemetery well looked after by volunteers

Meota News

First this week I would like to commend the many volunteers from this village and area who have done such a fantastic job of caring for the local cemetery and having the new location map erected so people can find their plots. It shows how co-operation works on such a project, even without their usual coffee breaks after the work is done each time.

The Remembrance Day service at the Meota Community Complex will be held Nov. 11, at 11:45 a.m. The hall will open at 11:30 a.m. All provincial guidelines will be followed and wearing masks is recommended. Because of COVID-19, no lunch will be served afterward.

The Walk Walk program will start up in the Meota Community Complex at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It will consist of walking about three miles along to a workout DVD program with stretching, cardio, warm ups and cool downs For more information call Elaine at 306-317-7746. COVID-19 restrictions will be practised. Come out and have some fun while getting fit. This is sponsored by the Meota and District Recreation Association.

Bridge was played in the Pioneer Hall in the city on the afternoon of Oct.27. Coming out on top were Albert Blais and Ron Inkster. Catriona Winterholt and Donna Scherman were second. The evening of Oct. 29 saw top score go to Margaret Dyck and Dave Creegan with second being Donna Scherman and Catriona Winterholt. They are all happy to be back playing their favourite game, be it afternoon or evening.

Norwegian whist was played at the Do Drop In Oct. 30. Top was by Arlene Walker. Tied for second were Albert Huys and Lorna Pearson  and tied for third were Linda Ard and Carol Huys.

Through the SaskTel Pioneers Program, volunteers have donated 606 laptops, iPads and mobile devices free of charge to K-12 schools and libraries, and to long term-care facilities, including Cut Knife Health Complex, in Saskatchewan. This group of volunteers collects and repairs donated computer equipment from government and private sector sources and distributes them free of charge to needy places. What a great program. Many are benefitted from it and appreciate it dearly.
