Funlovers to put on show
Its nice to see the sun again after a week of rain. Looks like anyone who didnt get their hay are in trouble for feed for their animals. It doesnt look good for the potato farmers as either the ground is wet and with anymore rain they could be unable to harvest the crop. Wednesday afternoon art classes are finished for the season and Thursday will be the last night for Tai Chi.
The Tidnish River band, hosted by Judy and Bob Boudrot, was thoroughly enjoyed by many friends and family on a lovely August afternoon, sipping cider by the riverside. This first public concert consisted of two and a half hours of old familiar pieces including jazz and blues professionally presented by Bon Boudrot on piano, John Hill saxophone, Bob Ackles on bass fiddle, Troy White drums and guest artist Elbert on trumpet, not to forget Ruth Nichols who thrilled the audience with her wonderful renditions, especially her Twisted. Everyone agreed we look forward to more music by the group.
Gloria King received word Sept. 1 that W.O. Kevin King has left for Afghanistan on Sept. 4 for a six-month stay. He is with the L.D.S.H. stationed in Edmonton. He assures everyone that the new tank he commands is the safest in the world, but mom still worries about his safety. Kevins wife, Seema, and children, Jasmine and Tarin, will miss him. Kevin is the son of Gloria and the late Robert King, grandson of Eugene and Margaret Haynes, all of Tidnish. Eeveryone will be praying for his safe return.
Tidnish Funlovers music group will be holding their last gathering of the season on Wednesday, Sept. 17 at 7 p.m. Everyone is asked to wear something red to honour our troops past and present. The Labour Day breakfast at the community center was well attended and we would like to thank June Estabrooks, Brian and Doreen Haynes for organizing and all the volunteers for making it a great success.
