The winners are; 3rd place Ron and Lori Wegrnast. 2nd place Chris and Bruce Porter 1st place Dick and Sharon Hays. Congratulations to all.

Andy Ramcharan has purchased a house in Alliance, just two doors down from one he lived in as a child. He is now the owner of the old Fallis house two doors down from the credit union.

The last farmer’s market for the year was on Wednesday in the Alliance Community Hall.

There was a good crowd in for a good lunch and the mood was festive. Winners of the food bank cake draws were: Sheila Miller, Laurie Fuller and Linda Cleveland. Christine Shover won the Vendors draw which was Tupperware this month. The WI Early Bird draw winners were: Brenda L (the floral arrangement), Grace Reister (the gift basket), Percy Crewe (the jewelry) and Anne Nelson (the kitchen bowls). The grand prize draw was also made. The winner was Emma Bullee. Emma also won the 50 Alliance Dollars last year.

Carol and Larry Jackson of Blackfalds were at the market to visit and lend a hand. Shauna Lee Thomas was also at the market with her turkey and trimmings products.

Happy and healthy New Year to all and don’t forget to send or call me with your news You could make that a New Years resolution. I have been doing the news for 45 years and I will continue if you will help by giving me a call.
