May this Christmas Holiday Season bring you the music of laughter, the warmest of friendship, love, peace and the best in the New Year of 2020, Canada's 150th!

Apologies Anna in the error of reporting incorrect names for the baptism of James Oliver, as Ted and Anna are James parents, Tanya is James God Mother.

The Birtle Agriculture Society held a sleigh ride and poker derby Dec. 15 in the Birdtail Valley with seven teams of horses and some horseback riders and many young and older people. Wayne Brown and Murray Peel from Miniota enjoyed the ride as well.

The Woodworth Senior Services (WWS) Social Club started on Tuesday, Nov. 5 at Kenton Memorial Hall with a group meal at Noon, followed by birthday cake celebrating November birthdays, a November quiz and then cards and games from 2-4 p.m. The social club continued on Nov. 12, 19 and 26.

There was a Foot Clinic on Nov. 8 at the WSS office. These are scheduled every six weeks, usually a Friday.

Christmas Turkey Bingo was held on Nov. 30 at 7 p.m. at the hall. There were 12 games, a bake table, grocery hamper raffle and a canteen. Community donations of baking were appreciated.

Dec. 3 at the social club from 1:30 - 3 p.m. there was an instant coffee art class by three members of the Virden Art Club: Myrna Gray, Marlene Balzar and Bonnie Sangster. It was interesting to see how this medium worked and the great results by the students. There was also cards from 2 - 4 p.m.

Woodworth Senior Services Christmas party on Dec. 10 at the Kenton Memorial Hall was a turkey dinner catered by Lisa and staff of Brierwood Creek Café. The December birthdays were celebrated with birthday cake, a December quiz, a door prize and his/her raffles. Entertainment from 2 - 4 p.m. was Clare and Beth English playing old time music and a guest appearance by Kennedy Routledge playing violin. The music was enjoyable. It was great to hear the older music and songs. Cards were played from 2 - 4 p.m.

After Dec. 17 the social club will take a two-week break for the social club. I hope everyone has an enjoyable Holiday Season.

In other news, Lorraine Nankivell has recently moved to Hamiota. We wish her all the best in her new home.

Paulette and Karen wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
