Another popular event was the annual harvest super held Sunday at the Devlin Hall, where more than 350 guests were served.
Although I wasn’t able to attend, I’ve heard the meal was scrumpcious, the hospitality great, and many a comment, “the good Lord willing, we’ll be back next year.”
The funds raised helps Guthrie United Church with its expenses.

Robin’s 2¢:
“Oh, Sally,” said Harriet, “I was sorry to hear about your husband. What happened?”
“Well,” answered Sally, “last Sunday I sent him out to the garden to pick a cabbage for supper. He was gone so long, I went to see what was wrong and found him lying there dead.”
“Oh, how awful!” said Harriet. “What did you do?”
“Oh, I just opened a tin of peas,” Sally replied.
