Have you seen any stray cows?  Dan and Grace Reister are missing some cows and calves.
The Library Board is once more organizing a Christmas Cookie Exchange.  Bake some cookies, package them up in one dozen lots and take them to the library on the morning of December 6 .  You get to take home the same number of cookies that you brought and a great variety too.  This is open to everybody.
If you would like to make a Christmas center piece with a group, call Tracy at the library.  If enough are interested there will be a course.

Diane Neufeld has moved back to Forestburg from Sussex, New Brunswick.  Ray is still working there and will commute back and forth.  Diane told me that they were in the grocery store in Sussex one day and heard someone call Ray’s name.  It was Amber Bullee who also lives in Sussex.

The Women’s Institute is having their Christmas party after the next meeting which will be December 5.  If you like you can bring items for the Women’s Shelter at Camrose or the Food Bank and it will get passed on.  I am putting this in the paper so all of you ladies can consider this your personal invitation to join the fun.  Party starts at one.
Let me know what you would like to do for the Community Christmas concert.
