Community Christmas party set for Dec. 7

The Township of La Vallee once again is hosting its annual community Christmas party and fun day.

This year’s event is planned for Sunday, Dec. 7 starting at 2 p.m. at the Devlin Hall. People are encouraged to bring their sleds, cards, and games for an afternoon of fun.

A potluck supper then will be served at 5 p.m. so be sure to bring along your favourite dish.

Christmas events set

The annual “Crafts Galore,” being held at the Emo Legion in conjunction with “Holly Daze” festivities, will be held Saturday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

This year they have added tables, which will make the selection even larger.

Lunch also will be served for $5, which includes sandwiches, soup, and a beverage.

Nov. 11 a time to remember

This Tuesday (Nov. 11) is Remembrance Day and let’s hope all Canadians take time to remember the many, many people who lost their lives in war.

And also remember those Canadians who are still in countries where they are trying to make a difference while helping their fellow human beings to have a better quality of life.

Monument unveiled

A large crowd showed up Friday to witness the unveiling of the Dance Fire monument, which coincided with the 70th anniversary of the tragic blaze that swept away 17 lives on Thanksgiving Day back in 1938.

Four families who lost loved ones that day were represented as speeches were given and “Amazing Grace” was played on the bagpipes by Jordan Manty.

Busy weekend ahead in Devlin

Some people may think life slows down once September rolls around. Well, that’s definitely not the case in Devlin this weekend, which boasts a long list of activities to suit anyone’s taste.

The annual Rainy Lake Fall Bass Classic, hosted by Dale LaBelle’s Birch Point Camp on Northwest Bay, runs this Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 27-28). More than 60 teams have registered this year.

Harvest supper coming up soon

Once again, Guthrie United Church will host its annual harvest supper on Sunday, Oct. 5 from 5-7 p.m.

The meal is always delicious, with this year’s menu consisting of turkey, ham, potatoes, gravy, vegetables, salads, buns, and lots of mouth-watering desserts.

The cost is $12 for adults and $5 for children aged six-12 (those five and under are free).
