Belated birthday greetings to Maurice MacMillan over at Golden Age Manor, who turned 96 last Thursday. Janet Loney greeted him with a decorated cake and good wishes were extended to the fine gentleman.
Congratulations, Maurice. I notice he occasionally takes his walk around the block, has his usual big smile, and enjoys himself to the fullest.

Wheelchair access to the arena ice surface has been installed by Dale Hartlin Construction. Those who had thought of this were short on the handle, what about into the auditorium?
Of course, the Spring Fever Days and Agriculture Society people were quick to act on their behalf and usefulness. When the Lions Club operated Bingos upstairs, it was brought to the arena board attention but nothing done even though there were valid complaints on this issue.
I guess it’s not what you know, it’s who you know to get things done properly.
