Miniota By Linda Clark
Congratulations to Autumn Darker, daughter of Rob and Christine Darker, and Elden Knihnitski who were married on Oct. 29 at the farm at Beulah. The ceremony took place in the implement shed built by her Grandpa Don in 1967, with the wedding supper and dance at the Miniota Hall. The happy couple makes their home at Bradwell Sask. Grandparents Don and Leila Darker, residents of Sherwood Personal Care Home, Virden were pleased to attend their granddaughter’s wedding on such a beautiful fall day.
The Miniota UCW held their first meeting following the Covid pandemic on Nov. 7 at the church with eight members present. 2022 budget projects were designated and the decision was made to hold a second bakeless bake sale with members making a donation to add to our finances so as to be able to meet these obligations. Plans were also made for 2023 with dates set for a roast beef supper in April and a turkey supper to be held in November. Our group lists will be updated with new members being invited to support the UCW initiatives and as well to secure as many cell phone numbers as possible. To support Christmas needs a call is being put out for donations of mitts, scarves and socks for children to adult sizes. Various collection points will be available in the community. The annual UCW meeting was set for Jan. 18, 2023.
It would seem as though winter has set in with both rain and snow this past weekend, and so we learn to drive all over again.

Ray Everette and his friend Eugene of Brandon were visitors with Ethel Bowles, Oct. 29. Alice Polk visited Ethel Bowles this week. Bev Bowles of Elkhorn and Lori Bowles of Brandon visited Ethel on Wednesday.
We handed out treats to 35 ghosts and goblins on Halloween night. It’s so kind of the parents to bring the kids for the residents to see their costumes.
Brandon Mobility Health Care Solutions came and gave us a presentation on Nov. 2, helping us to stay independent. They had a lot of stuff for sale to help us. They also adjusted wheelchairs if needed. A lot of good advice for us.
I still go and play cards at the New Horizon Centre on Monday and Wednesday at 1 p.m., Friday night at 7:30. I love to go to the Oil Capitals hockey games. I even was lucky to win part of the jackpot.
