On Oct. 20, there will be a casserole supper in the Diligent River Rec Center in support of the Fundy Phantoms Junior C hockey team.
The Phantoms play out of Parrsboro and Springhill, and include several local players on the team. Wayne Cormier of Diligent River is the assistant coach.
This fundraiser will help support the team in travel and lodging expenses and because many of the team are students, their funds are limited. Even if you are not a hockey fan, you will see the need to keep our youth in sports rather. Everyone is encouraged to support in any way you can and do come and enjoy a late fall supper meal on Oct. 20, 2 to 4 p.m. Cost is $8 adults and $3.50 children.
On Saturday, Oct. 13, the TOPS group in Parrsboro will be holding a combination sale, which includes clothing table, grab bag and bake table. The time is 9 a.m. and all are welcome.
