Alida News

Hope everyone enjoyed their spring break. Now students will have two weeks of online learning, thanks to this pandemic showing its face once again.

Good luck students, I’m sure you would just as soon be back at school with your friends and teachers. Hopefully you will be back soon and can resume “normal” school activities once again.

The Alida Rec Board held their first online auction from April 9-11 and the last time I checked it out it was looking like it would be a successful event for them. They are to be supplying me with a write-up when all is figured out.

The COVID vaccinations are continuing and some have been going to different centres in the area for their shots. We’re waiting for our second shot, which hopefully will be soon.

I sure do encourage you to get your vaccinations. Now with the variants becoming ramped as well, we do have to get everything under control, and the sooner the better.

We received a little precipitation over the weekend – starting with a little rain on Sunday, enough to dampen everything and to fill my water bucket from house runoff, which sometime during the night turned to snow. Again we just received a nice light covering. At least it will help a wee little bit to dampen the dryness. The weather forecast stated that we could receive more moisture during this week. I sure hope so as we sure do need the moisture.     

Wishing the following a very happy birthday for this coming week – Lori Phenix, Donna Fraser, Mason Beriault, Betty Burnett, Jason Peet and Denis Burnett. Hope you all have a great day.

I will see that your news gets into a paper.

As we keep moving slowly forward do continue to keep a safe distance and wear your mask and stay safe. I do appreciate all your input as it does help keep this column interesting.
