Hope everyone is appreciating the rain we are finally receiving – although I think it’s a bit late to do much good for the trees. I have never seen them looking as bad as they are now at the beginning of August. It’s more like the end of September.
We held a summer bid euchre tournament this year and 88 people attended. Once again everyone said how much they enjoyed the tea biscuits and luncheon. The winners were Doreen Fretz who was first with 400; Ida Cameron who was second with 390; and Pat Bissonette who was third with 387.
Moon Shots were made by Greta Taylor, Jurgen Tietz, Harold Pratt, Ralph Wye, Ken Burgoyne, Jacques Rodrigue, Gerry Schmidt, Sandy Brosch, Wendy Sawyer, Ken Woehl, and Dave Frazer had two.
We had six prizes for Share the Wealth – Ken Woehl, Frank Gallant, Irene Bodley, Bev Skelding and lucky Greta Taylor won twice. The door prize was won by Betty Mueller. Unfortunately we did not get the name of the lady who won the Call One. I would like to thank everyone who worked hard to make this tournament a success and all those who came to play. Winners of our Tuesday night Bid Euchre were: July 3 – Doreen Fretz, Jean Pennington and Bill MacDonald; July 10 – Sandra Reid, Ken Burgoyne and Betty Mueller; July 17 – Linda Reid, Neil Wilson and Bonnie Marriott; July 24 – Doris Klose, Bernice Irvine and Ken Burgoyne; and July 31 – Eugene Francis, Betty Mueller and Linda Reid. It was great to have Bill and Eileen MacDonald visit.
Our next potluck will be on Tuesday, August 21 at noon. At our luncheon on Tuesday, September 18, we will have Jan Merli from Hospice as a guest speaker.
Birthday wishes for August go to Bernadette Bailey and Ruth Bailey.
