Finally the fire ban for the area has been lifted, but the trees still show the effects of the very dry spell we experienced. Hopefully they will come back next spring.
It even looks like fall with the trees turned and the cooler nights. Summer has really gone by quickly.
There are lots of cards results to report this time.

We also held a bid euchre tournament on Tuesday, August 14, and the winners were: first, John Junck with 394; second Glenn Fretz, 389; and third, Judy McKinnon, 359. Barb Frazer, Charlie McAlister, Hugh Green, Bernice Irvine and Bernie Hodgson won the share the wealth. Bernie won the door prize, which was a lovely basket. Joan Penfold won the call "l" after lucky Bernie's name was drawn and he declined another basket. Moonshots were made by Rhoda Bailey, Klaus Reinhardt, Alec Darroch, Hugh Green, Terry Wiseman, Chris Chapman, Eleanor Land, Bernice Irvine, Olive Patterson and Bob Beirness. It happened to be Robert Walker and Eleanor Land's birthday that day. Note that Eleanor got a moonshot on her birthday. Thanks to all who helped make this a success.
