The annual Christmas supper and program was well attended Dec. 9 at 5 p.m. Greetings were given by the new mayor, Mr. Becotte, and Reeve Garry Taylor of the RM of Eldon.
Following a delicious turkey supper those attending were entertained by Melony Coote (nee Hougen) singing and Bill McArthur on his guitar. Garry Taylor played guitar and sang and Vince Gerlinsky played his keyboard for the carol singing.

Numerous door prizes were drawn for. Winners were Mary Bray, Daphne McLaren, Phyllis Watson, Joyce Weston, Jack Johner, Frances Petterson, Kay Carlson, Keith Paton, Bev Stewart, Caroline Smith, Vern Smith and Marie Hartman.

The Christmas bingo was held Dec. 14 with a good turnout. Everyone went home with a $5 gift and lots of $1 gifts were won. The variety of inexpensive gifts was impressive.
I would like to wish everyone a happy and healthy 2017.
