Three tables of players enjoyed the day of cards and visiting. Ken Edwards took 1st prize, Hazel Chute 2nd, and Ruth Edwards took 3rd. We play again next month. I recently received word of the passing of Arthur Hine, age 94, of Kelowna, BC. The oldest and last of that family, he was predeceased by his parents Thomas and Annie Hine, brothers Harry (2015), Les, George, and twin sisters Lillian and Eileen. He is survived by his wife Theresa, two sons, a daughter, and numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Arthur was a plumber by trade, and his favourite hobby was fishing. Theresa once told me that most of their holidays were taken up visiting family members, and ‘going fishing’! The snowbirds are now returning from warmer places, and most are not likely happy with the late spring. The ones with feathers must be wondering why the water is so hard! Claude and Ruth McNichol, of Nokomis, and Stu and Maureen McLellan of Edmonton caught onto the deal, and decided to stay in Osoyoos until May 1st. Maureen texted me the other day, saying she had stayed in the outdoor pool too long and got a sunburn! Should I feel sorry ? Ha ha! -Ilene Harding Owen Grabarczyk Cell: (306) 529 -1469 email@example.com On April 11, the Nokomis Royal Canadian Legion donated a cheque for $2875 to the Nokomis Health Centre for the purchase of a Palliative Care Mattress.

Nokomis Public Library story hour children did a flower-making project on Thursday, April 12 in memory of the Humboldt Broncos. As they told Betty when they walked in with their hockey jerseys on: “we’re supporting the hockey players that were killed in that terrible accident.” I was impressed that they said that.

Semans Candlelight Quilters On Wednesday, April 11 Laurie Challand saw ‘the call’ for 200 quilts for those that were impacted by the Humboldt Bronco bus accident. She saw that local quilters from Humboldt and Melfort were making quilts for the 29 players /staff, or families of players/staff that were on the bus. The call for quilts for billet families, First Responders, EMT, RCMP, Fire, Broncos staff and Board members and many others impacted in the community of Humboldt and Tisdale was also heard. Laurie dug through her stash of fabric and brought it to her sewing group evening get together. Delores and her group chose the fabrics and started cutting. In no time Jerrylyn, Delores, Laurie and Lynn had the quilt top sewn together ready for Laurie to quilt and get off to Humboldt. The deadline for the quilt to be in Humboldt is May 18th so the girls will for sure have it there in time along with many more from all across Canada. A special label with a Broncos logo will be applied to each quilt before they are given out. Good job gals. The ladies in the picture are left to right: Laurie, Delores, Jerrylyn and Lynn.
