Miniota By Bev Peel
Congratulations from the Miniota Community to Brad and Stephanie Cole of Caronport, Sask. on the birth of Jack Samuel Reid Cole Jan. 10, 2020. Also Congratulations to grandparents Del and Pat Cole, the Friesens of Gladstone, Man. and Great Grandma Marg Taylor of Virden.
The Miniota rink was a very busy place Saturday with parents, grandparents and great grandparents watching the 8U and 6U hockey teams playing against the Hamiota teams. Sunday the 5U Miniota team played against Virden in spite of the cold temperatures and south wind.
The senior hockey game on Jan. 12 against Swan Valley was cancelled until the 25th of January.
Sympathy from the community goes out to the Sheane families on the passing of Eileen Sheane who was a resident of the Virden Nursing Home. Also to the families of Charlotte Gabrielle on her passing.
