A beautiful day for a winter walk

Brenda Shenton enjoyed a stroll on the frozen surface of Beauvais Lake last Wednesday.

Winter Walk Day is a Safe Healthy Active People Everywhere (SHAPE) Alberta event that encourages Albertans to be more active outdoors and to be active travellers.

As an MD of Pincher Creek resident, Brenda typically comes to town and joins the combined Winter Walk and Jersey Day crew, but she tried something different this year.

Clean sweep to victory

Sixteen teams and six days of competition, and it was an all-ladies rink that took the title at this year’s Town and Country Mixed Bonspiel at the Pincher Creek Curling Club.

Creekview Dental, led by co-skips Hayley Smith and Jessie Kilkenny, doubled Justin Zoratti’s foursome 4-2, stealing one in the sixth end to take the championship in Saturday’s A-event final. From left are Shelby Speight (spare), Jocelyn Metzler (lead), Jessie Kilkenny (skip),  Jessica Brauer (third) and Hayley Smith (second).

It’s all about the glitter!

“See Mom, it’s all about the glitter!” exclaimed six-year-old Alex Ingram in reference to his winning entry in Shootin’ the Breeze’s Shop Local for Christmas colouring contest. He was rightly proud of his efforts and happily accepted gift certificates from Your Dollar Store With More to go shopping for art supplies.
