Ross and Karin McCracken got moved into their new residence.  Meanwhile back at the McCracken farm Dwayne and wife had just moved into their house and they were faced with a cold night with the power off. The power was off up to eight hours east of town which made it a little chilly with the new snow and all.
Laurie and Dennis Fuller had to go to Edmonton to get supplies for Main Street Medley so they took the opportunity to attend the concert of  the Dixie Chicks.
Work is progressing on the Davidson house.  Ralph and Beth are having renovations and an addition put on the house his grandmother lived in.  They are quite comfortable in their RV home in the meantime.
It was quite surprising to have 25 out to church on Sunday.  The minister was away.  The first snow of the season was coming in earnest.  The change to Mountain Standard Time took place.
Geoff Dean filled the pulpit in Jope’s absence.  Jope had prepared the service before he left.
The Alliance Seed Cleaning Plant held the annual meeting on Saturday night.  They served a delicious beef dinner which is an excellent way to get members to attend a meeting.  The board of directors remains the same.  Tom Coppick is chair of the board.  After the dinner presentations were made for long service on the board.  Ken Fordice received a plaque for 15 years and Norman Brynland got one for 20 years of service.
Muriel Fankhanel, on behalf of BRAED, Battle River Alliance for Economic Development, made a presentation to a business that has been in operation for over 50 years and has made a contribution to the community.  The Alliance Seed Cleaning Plant fulfilled these qualifications.  Tom Coppick accepted the award and thanked Terry Howe and the staff for the great job that they do.
Women’s Institute meet on Wednesday, November 6 with the theme of citizenship and legislation.  We will be looking at resolutions to create change.  One of  the concerns of this area is the lack of recognition and treatment for Lyme disease.  Sue Thomas will give us some background to help determine if a resolution to the government may be in order.
