Advocate Harbour -
Hi again from Advocate. Don't you just love this mild weather and the days getting longer? All are sure signs that spring is coming!
The family of the late Peter Larsen was saddened to learn of his passing on Feb. 8 in High River, Alta. Peter was born in Apple River, the oldest son of Karl and Alice Larsen. For many years he lived in Plaster Rock, N.B. with his wife Helen before retiring and moving to Cayley, Alta. He is survived by his son Dale (Peggy), brothers Clemm (Phyllis), Olaf (Estelle) and sisters Herdis Ferguson, Laura (Dave) Bezanson and Edith (Art) Fillmore.
The Advocate Fire Department wishes to thank everyone who donated and helped with the Valentines supper and for the communities for supporting their supper.
The Lucky Duck draw tickets are here. Donnie Fletcher and I have tickets that are $1 each and first prize is $3,000. Last year a local person won one of the secondary prizes, so it was nice to know one of the winners!
