Alliance Remembrance Day well attended

Rev. Dianne Crewe was in church Sunday morning

By Diane Dammann Alliance news

The annual Alliance Remembrance Day hosted by the Legion was a well attended and meaningful service followed by a delicious pot luck lunch.

There is a large membership in the local Legion branch. Several former residents make a point of coming home for the day for a chance to visit and remember. Terry Schofield (Ulrich) was one who was there. Doug and Donna Wold came from Camrose.

Herb and Joyce Smith along with Steven and Stacee came from Lacombe. Herb and Stacee laid a wreath in memory of a grandfather. Rob and Darlene Wold came from their home in Delburne.

Wendy Phillips had some grandchildren with her on November 11. I met her daughter Kelly and granddaughters Juliette and Annabell from Edmonton.

Faye Gowan of Cochran has been visiting her sister, Mary Wold for a week or so. Faye enjoyed the Remembrance service and pot luck.

Hector Chalifoux is home after almost seven weeks in hospital.

This is Market Week in Alliance. I know it is only the 15 of November but it is the third Wednesday this month.

The Women’s Institute met on Wednesday. We discussed social services such as the Food Bank and FFCS. At the Christmas meeting we will be collecting items for the Food Bank and the women’s shelter. We also discussed the lack of credit/debit payment at the Co-op bulk gas in town. It is time again to petition them to add this technology.

The hall is booked for December 30 for the 80th birthday of Jim Bullee.

The Ag Society is holding it’s annual meeting on Tuesday, November 14.

Rev. Dianne Crewe was in church on Sunday morning to serve the communion but her voice was not strong enough to do the whole service so Beth Davidson did most of the leading. There were 20 in attendance at the United Church on Sunday.

Art and Tina Ratcliffe had four grandchildren for the school break this past weekend. This is the first time they had Dominic, Anika, Zane and Melissa all at once.
