Time for another edition of what's new or old. We've been enjoying some much warmer temperatures lately and no ones complaining. Being Manitoba, it could change any minute. Wasn't it great if you were a curling fan and had Bell TV you could watch the men's curling in Neepawa. Neepawa should be very proud of their efforts. The bonus for me was my favourite skip Jeff Stoughton and team going on to the next level. McCreary Seniors served up chili, bun and dessert on Monday, Feb. 11. They decorated for a Mardi Gras scene. They had a fairly good turnout but lots of room for more. We need to get behind our Seniors events as we're all going to be there one day. For anyone looking to join it's very easy. There are events there most days of the week, even bingo most Saturdays. The next Home Routes concert will be held Feb. 23 at the Burrows Trail Art Center with performers Rebecca Wenham and Sarah Hagen on the cello and piano. Phone Anne for tickets at 204-835-2193. McCreary Legion bonspiel will be held the weekend of March 1. Get your entries in. Phone McCreary Legion for more particulars. For more curling McCreary Recreation is sponsoring a family funspiel Saturday, March 16. This is a fun family event so get your entries in to Nancy at the Rec office at 835-2673. Must be at least one adult per team. McCreary and area has been saddened with the loss of several residents who have passed away recently - namely Mrs. Elda Plessis, Mrs. Jean Musgrave, and Jacob Born. To their families, McCreary offers their deepest sympathy and support in these trying times. I attended the Pancake Supper at Kelwood on Feb. 12. Nice turnout and, of course, I had one to many (pancakes that is) Sadie Leepart and Theresa Nault also took it in. And here it is (I just know you're waiting with bated breath for it) Budda says " Health is the greatest gift, Contentment is the greatest wealth, A trusted friend is the best relative, And a liberated mind is the greatest bliss."
