The Castor Farmers Market was a bustling place on May 3. Twenty-four vendors were set up, selling plants, baking, crocheted creations, jewelry, meat, woodworking and much more. Everyone enjoyed beef on a bun with coleslaw for lunch, while visiting and shopping. This month’s door-prize winners were Dane Jackson and Wesley Pockett. A special Mother’s Day draw was also held, with Gwen Coppock and Connie Gibson winning a plant each. The next market will be at the Castor Community Hall on June 7.
Penny Roessler, Mickey Hronek, Claire Hillman (Nichols), and Marsha Fuller just returned from a fabulous weeklong bus trip. From April 28-May 4 they were part of the “BC Hot Springs and Nelson Stay Awhile” tour.
The bus took them through the Rockies, stopping at Halcyon Hot Springs, Ainsworth Hot Springs and Fairmont Hot Springs, as well as Nelson, BC. Penny said the highlights of the tour were shoe shopping at “the big shoe store” on Baker Street in Nelson, and the Ainsworth Hot Springs with the horseshoe shaped caves.
The Castor Elks held their bi-weekly bingo on May 2 at the Castor Golden Circle. There was a good crowd this time around, with people coming from Stettler and Forestburg to get their bingo fix.
