We will have the January Newsletter and Calendar out very shortly, but I just wanted to remind everyone of the next Luncheon at the Kakabeka Legion on Friday, January 20th from 12:00 to 1:30.

It consists of soup, sandwich, dessert, and beverage. It is free to members and $15.00 for partners.

There is a book to sign up for the Luncheon on the front desk at the Centre and we need to have a head count by Friday January 13th.

Hello Everyone,

Hope everyone is doing well.

Here is the December Newsletter & Calendar.

Monique, our fantastic newsletter editor, is looking for some feedback on the Newsletter; by example, is there too much clipart; would you like more jokes or maybe a puzzle?

Please let us know if there is anything different you would like to see in the newsletter or if there is ever something you want included in the newsletter, please, let us know!

Also, just a reminder if you do not feel well, please do not come to the Centre! Thank you!

And, if there is a big storm, the Centre will not be plowed out and there may not be anyone there to let you in so please consider the conditions before coming to the Centre.

For anyone who asked for their membership cards, they are now in the Membership Card box on the rack at the front desk.

Your Board of Directors want to wish each and everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Let’s all hope that the New Year will be better one.

Your 'Jolly HoHoHo!' Board

What fantastic news!!

Did you know our Rural 60 Plus Quilters and our Weavers have struck gold this year, each with very successful fundraiser raffles!

The Weavers' beautiful prize rug was won by Mr. Sam Valente with winning ticket number 389 . Congratulations, Sam!

The Quilters' "Northern Lights" quilt won First Prize at this year's Hymers Fair for hand-sewn quilts. YEAH!

And then "Northern Lights" gets another recognition ... something called "Special Award".

End of story?? NOT!! Our Special Award quilt hit the road to another regional competition! Mr. Randy Creighton of the Hymers Fair Board took the quilt to Dryden on our behalf and entered it into the Northwestern Ontario District 15 competition hosted by the Ontario Association of Agricultural Societies. The OAAS holds 15 regional competitions across the Province each year. The first place winner in each of eight classes of judging in each of the 15 Districts is then invited to the Annual OAAS Convention in Toronto in February to compete for Grand Champion.

During the District 15 OAAS competition, the Quilters' raffle draw was made and the quilt was won by Mr. Harold Hunt on ticket number 14. Congrats!!

But the story gets even better!!

YES! our Quilter's "Northern Lights" took Regional First Prize in Hand Quilts - District 15!!! YEAH!!!

Oh, this such a fun story!
Mr. Hunt has graciously delayed taking possession of "Northern Lights" to allow us to hold on to the quilt and take it to Toronto to compete in February! A huge 'thank you' Harold!

WOW! What great times!!

Hello Everyone,

As for the bake table, please disregard what was in the Newsletter about having to put your name and phone number on whatever you bring. Instead, you can just give your name to the person manning the table.

Also just a reminder that if you are going to the luncheon at the Legion on Friday November 18th you have to sign up by next Thursday so we have a count for the Legion.

Have a great weekend.
