FGVFD fire chief Bob Felker up after bout with tree

Dear Canimites,

As I write this, a collective hush has fallen over the land as folks hold their breath and wait for the “great white.”

All except for the crib crowd, of course, that merrily pursues the cut and thrust of their game in Margo’s Cabin. Hurricane Katrina could blow through and they wouldn’t notice.

Play is Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. New players are very welcome.

Felker back on feet

Forest Grove Volunteer Fire Department (FGVFD) chief Bob Felker is back on his feet after tangling with a disagreeable pine.

His supervision of the fireworks on Halloween enabled the display to proceed to the great enjoyment of a record crowd. Wendy Clarke and Keri Bratberg were as busy as one-armed paperhangers dishing out the free hotdogs.

Thanks go to the many FGVFD volunteers who raise the funds and run this event in addition to all their other duties.

Canim Community Club

The club is hitting highway speed with activities coming at a great rate.

On Nov. 27 in Margo’s Cabin, members will be making Christmas centrepieces and wreaths. Lynne Baker says it’s time to cut your cedar or fir boughs. Bring them to the cabin at 10:00 a.m. and enjoy the festivities. Call Lynne for more details at 250-397-2379.

On Nov. 18 at 10 a.m., the Book Club meets at Sheila Hart’s home to review Charlie Faessler’s story Bridge Lake Pioneer. As bright as a new dollar, he tells a fascinating story of early Cariboo life from 1926. Call Sheila at 250-397-2645 for details.

On Nov. 21, the monthly Community Dinner will be at El Caballo at 6 p.m. If you haven’t attended one of these before, it’s time you did. Call Dolores Angell at 250-397-0220 with questions.

That’s all for now. Until next time, here’s wishing you many blessings.
