Ivan and Nora Crampain spent time at the “Sherwood Forest” Campground near Regina, Sask. and while there attended the wedding of their son Jeffrey and Bride-Elect Amy Mathews of Weyburn. The wedding took place in their home yard at Buena Vista, neighboring Regina Beach. We wish congratulations to both of them. A reception following the wedding was in Sherwood Forest. While in the campground, Nora and Ivan visited with Lorne and Cynthia Ellis who make this campground their summer home.

Marvin and I (Paulette) were glad that our niece Cherie and her family from South Africa were home to visit with family and friends. We visited with them in Winnipeg (Cherie’s hometown). We went to celebrate her mother Annabelle’s retirement from teaching school. Cherie had planned a retirement tea for her. We met in Brandon for lunch on Sept. 29. On Sept. 30 they visited CrossRoads Community Church, a sponsor of their missionary work in South Africa through World Vision. Our great niece Emihle was only a few months old when we first met her and now she is 19 months old; we met our great nephew, seven-month-old Thandowethu, for the first time. We had lots of aunt and uncle time with the children and visiting with the adults. As always the time goes by very quickly and they have now returned to South Africa. We can’t wait until they come to Canada again.

Congratulations to all the parents in Kenton and the surrounding area who have been blessed with new additions to their families:

Congratulations to all the grandparents, great-grandparents and all the other relatives who welcomed these little ones. 

Get Well Wishes and a Speedy Recovery to Jean Caldwell.
