Apologies to the great grandparents of Jory Lee Stonehouse, which read great-great (last week) instead of just great.

Sympathy from the Miniota community to Marg Taylor and all her family on the passing of her sister, Lois Vincent of Winnipeg.

Trudy Waters from Arrow River traveled to El Salvador with her sister Marilyn and Don Nugent, and friends Edy and Wayne Clayton to attend the wedding of Trudy's niece, Sarah Nugent to Renzo Caldero. They spent two weeks exploring the country and meeting Renzo's family. Renzo and Sarah plan on doing a lot of traveling.

The Kenton Open Bonspiel was held January 23-27, with 20 rinks entered. The first event went to Lawrence Daniel of Kenton, second event was won by Heaman Electric in Virden and the Third event went to Dennis Veitch of Rivers. Meals were served at the Kenton Rink during the Bonspiel. A good show of curlers and volunteers made the bonspiel a success.

Stay safe and warm everyone, as we bear getting through another cold snap of the winter.
