We send our condolences to the Fowler family at Gerry’s passing. She will be greatly missed.

Mike Campbell had appointments in Winnipeg this past week. His son, Matthew, came to spend the weekend with him. Both enjoyed hunting, a good father/son activity.

Irene Rowand’s sisters Karen and Lynn of Saskatchewan picked her up and went to see Elf the Musical. Then they enjoyed a delicious supper.

Sherald Joynt went to Oklahoma to spend time with her grandchildren Janine and Justin from Germany. Janine was competing at the World Horse Show.

There were a few Grey Cup parties in the building on Sunday and possibly some money changed hands! The majority seemed to be excited about the outcome of the game.

Princess Lodge by Bernice Graham

Visiting with Kay Cross were friends from Griswold: Dot Cross, Doreen Schmidt and sisters Carmelle Hall and Irene Collom.

The November birthday party was held Tuesday afternoon, starting with card bingo followed by dessert and visiting. November birthdays are Beth Stuart, Doris Nield, Charlotte Hutton and Tom Anderson.

Some of the residents attended the enjoyable musical production of Elf at the Aud last week.

Miniota By Bev Peel

Miniota Municipal Services to Seniors hosted a Home Routes concert in the United Church on Nov. 19.  Warren Murfitt and Kate Main are singer/songwriters from Vancouver, B.C.  As part of this concert tour they have played for 10 days in small venues across Manitoba, sharing their songs, accompanied by guitar and bass. Birtle Services to Seniors asked Miniota to host two of their six-concert series so we were fortunate to have Warren and Kate entertain us. Their folksy country music sounded great in the acoustics of the church! 

Miniota walking is being enjoyed were it is safe from the elements, at the Miniota Hall, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Especially after rain and then three inches of heavy wet snow!

Heidi and Avery Clark are teaching young children dance classes at the Miniota Elementary School.
