CAESAREA by Eleanor Colwell
Caesarea Nestleton Euchre: Euchre Scores for Thursday October 31st: Lorna Edgerton finished in first place and had the most lone hands, Brigitte Moase came in second second, Sheila Patterson was third, Jocelyn Bradbury came in fourth, and Marg Cayer finished in fifth place. Dianne Slute had the low score. Nestleton Euchre is held every Thursday (except holidays) in the Nestleton Community Centre, 3971 Hwy 7A, play starts at 7:30 p.m. Blackstock Cartwright Lions Club: Monday, November 11th, Remembrance Day, will see us at the Blackstock Recreation Complex setting up to serve lunch to the participants in the service at the hall and those returning from the cenotaph. Thanks to Ken Hudson for arranging for our wreath at the cenotaph. If the weather co-operates, we should have the grounds around the cenotaph looking respectable for the service. Just a reminder that on Thursday, November 14th, World Diabetes Day, our Lions are partnering with Wellness Shield Pharmacy in Blackstock to do some blood sugar checking. The plan is to make it an early morning session from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at the pharmacy, since this is best done while fasting. This is a free service to the public and we thank Farzad, our pharmacist, for working with us once again. By this time next week, we should have the name of the Lions Peace Poster Contest winner representing our Club at the District competition in Beaverton. The theme of the contest changes every year, but always has something to do with peace. This year it is “Journey of Peace”. Since the poster paper size requirement is very specific, our Lions supply the school with enough paper for the all the students in grades 6, 7 and 8 to participate. Judges are asked to evaluate the posters on three criteria: originality, artistic merit, and expression of the theme. We thank Mrs. Brownrigg for guiding her students through this preparation.
