Community Floats Bring Home First

Four floats entered in the district fall fair came home with a first place win. Four floats were entered and four first’s were won.
The Devlin/LaVallee municipality entered a float for the first time, they took “the best decorated event.”
Freda Carmody would like to thank all the folks who worked and donated articles to the float.
Country View Child Care also entered a float for the first time, they brought home a first in the “best business advertisement.”
Tess Galusha’s “queen contestant float” won a first in the Saturday fair parade, “sorry I’m not sure what category.”
Christine McCoy placed first on her float that was entered in the queen contest. All participants deserve a big applause for their many hours it takes to make a float–you did our community proud. We will all have to pitch in next year to keep up the good record “4 out of 4 ain’t bad.”
Jeff & Kerry Hyatt won second place for the “beautification contest” they placed in the “gate sign division”–way to go kids!

Reports have it that Pat Hyatt is progressing–unfortunately Pat was rushed to Winnipeg last Wednesday by air ambulance where she underwent several hours of surgery on Thursday. By Friday she was showing signs of improvement. Our community of friends and family continue to hold her close in our hearts and prayers as she goes through this difficult time.

Robin’s 2¢:
If you wonder what you’re wife does with all the grocery money, stand sideways and look in the mirror.
