Also happy to welcome Harlo to the family are grandparents Dean and Denise Bryant of St. Lazare, Allan and Pam Graham of Birtle, great-grandparents Stan and Bonnie Bryant of Miniota and Denis and Claudette Simard of St. Lazare, as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.

This past weekend, the Birtle Collegiate Institute hosted the provincial soccer tournament at both the Birtle Collegiate and in Miniota. The Miniota Sports ground was alive with action on Saturday. Great to see school buses from various points in Manitoba here.
It is great to see our Main Street all decorated for Halloween courtesy of Sheila Kokorudz and Brenda Lelond. As well, our local Miniota Drop In Centre is busy these days with their coffee shop open for business and visiting early in the morning. As well, the winter activities have begun with floor curling. A beehive of activity each day. Drop in for fellowship or an activity.
