There were six vendors on hand – Eileen Petrun from Borden with baking, Donna Ridgewell of Radisson, with jewelery and baking, Karen Polischuk from Radisson with baking, Lorraine Anderlik of Saskatoon with baking, perogies and cabbage rolls, Joyce Olsewski of Langham with Tupperware and Karen Kerr with jams, jellies, and crafts. Fresh spinach and dill brought by Connie Kenakin of Langham.
Hopefully there will also be honey and garden vegetables in the next few weeks.
Lorraine Olinyk was at the registration desk keeping track everyone who comes through the market and COVID-19 rules are in place.

The Borden Fellowship Church held an outdoor community service behind Living Books warehouse July 5, with close to 45 in attendance. With Mary Thiessen playing keyboard and Ron Mills guitar, Peter Thiessen welcomed everyone and led in the hymn singing with the words printed on a large screen. Daryl Wiebe led the discussion time, when he asked two questions: what have you missed about church in the past 15 weeks and what have you heard that has challenged you in your life at this time? Close to 10 people responded, describing a closer relationship with God and ways God has helped them cope.
Pastor Ron Mills gave a brief message and closed with a prayer.
The Forever In Motion exercises have started up again in the Borden Friendship Club Room with Audrey Baker and Bev Assman leading the session at 10 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays. There have been nine or 10 in attendance the last two weeks.
