Our Journey Helping Those In Need Throughout North America
Here it is – coming that time of year again – TWO MILES FOR MARY. September 29, 2017, 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. is the date, and Heritage Centre is the place for the Radiothon and 30th anniversary of Two Miles for Mary. For this special anniversary, Two Miles for Mary will be gathering all the Mary’s together to honour them and allow them to act as united spokespeople for the operation. The term of last year’s Mary is done and a new Mary will be “crowned”. Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend because we have commitments in B.C, but we will be thinking of you back here in P.A. This service of Senior Transportation is a lifeline of independence for many Seniors in Prince Albert!
The following is a write-up taken from CJWW Home Page with respect to the radio career of Rod Kitter:
Rod was born in Saskatoon about the time they put the river through. He attended Prince Philip Elementary, Walter Murray High School, and a brief stint at the College of Engineering at the U of S. When asked why he left , his reply was simple...One of us had to go and they were here first.
Omigosh, the news this past week has brought back many memories of folks down in Texas who lost everything in Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Rita and Hurricane Ike and here they are again – with Hurricane Harvey, which is by far worse than any previous storms. Watching the devastation on T.V. is heart-wrenching! We just got notification on Facebook today that the young couple from Smithwick Church who purchased our RV when we left, had the blessing of a brand new baby boy this past week. We just learned that baby’s Dad, being a “first responder”, is driving an emergency vehicle through the flood waters of Beaumont, Tx, as I am writing this. What a SMALL WORLD!
Our little garden has surprisingly yielded a much bigger crop than we expected. We had a nice feed of peas which ended up being the ones without the inner skin, so they were easily munched and enjoyed without being cooked. We are happy with our one little row of carrots, and I was able to blanch and freeze several bags of cut yellow beans in addition to cooking some fresh out of the garden. Initially I believed our potatoes would not produce much, but I think they are going to surprise me. As the summer wore on, more potato plants popped up than the initial few originally, and they all seemed to have blossoms. I stole a couple of potatoes from one plant and was not unhappy with the size of them…
It was my brother’s mission to paint his house, a task which was long overdue. We offered to give him a hand and have a nice visit with him in Langenburg at the same time. We first scraped and painted the front where John had built a bay window a few years ago. After that was done, we scraped and painted the side of the house where the main door is. Our sister, Thelma, from Yorkton, came and helped with that. We were happy to see her feeling well enough to come and give us a hand, and she seemed to enjoy having a task to keep her mind off of her ailments and to socialize after we were done for the day. Ken and Jaqueline brought some food and we had a bit of a lawn party afterwards. We couldn’t believe what a transformation took place with a new coat of paint!!
