Hello from beautiful downtown New Salem.
I hope you have all had a wonderful week. The leaves are almost all gone and this morning we had a very heavy frost. It makes me sad to think of the colder weather coming our way now, so we'll have to look forward to spring coming.
On Friday, Nov. 8, Advocate Community Bingo will be held at the Advocate Fire Hall at 7 p.m. Come on out for an evening of fun and bring a friend, neighbour or pick up a hitchhiker. I thought that would be funny.
An Open Mic will be held at the Advocate Fire Hall at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16. There will be a canteen and 50/50. It is a great evening of wonderful music by some very talented musicians, well worth attending. Donation at the door and proceeds are for the Advocate & District Volunteer Fire Department.
On Saturday, Nov. 23 Ladies Night will be held at the Advocate Fire Hall. From 5 to 6 p.m. is a social hour and viewing of silent and Chinese auction items. At 6, there will be a pot luck supper with games and entertainment afterwards.
Cost is $20 and a dish for the pot luck supper.
Proceeds are for the Advocate School Hot Lunch Program.
I can't remember how many years this has been going, but it is a fun evening for the ladies and a great fundraiser for the Hot Lunch Program!
The Downshore Christmas Market will be held from 9 a.m. to noon at th Log Building on Mills Road in Advocate Harbour on Saturday, Nov. 30.
Come and see the great baking, Christmas Items and more and have a coffee or tea and snack with an old friend or make a new friend. Don't forget to shop local for Christmas.
