The Alida community extends sincere sympathy to Barry Miller on the passing of his sister Lynne Haatvedt of Strathmore, Alta., on Feb. 7 at the Foothills Hospital in Calgary at the age of 69 years. She was the daughter of the late Truman and Violet Miller of Redvers and she leaves to mourn her death a daughter Shannon (Moosomin) and brother Barry.

A Valentine’s Day special supper of a rack of ribs, choice of potato, salad and dessert was held on Feb. 12 at Café 361 (this also included take outs). It was a great special Lori – very delicious as always.
Another Valentine’s Day supper special was offered here at Alida on Feb. 14 by the Alida Ladies Auxiliary members. It was a delicious supper of lemon butter chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables and a chocolate dessert that was picked up at the Alida Rink. Great job ladies as always can hardly wait until the next one. Hope you all had a Happy Valentine’s Day and of course treated your significant other.
Feb. 15 was Family Day, a long weekend and the beginning of the February school break. Enjoy your break students and staff – you have all earned it. The sun is shining brightly most days but it’s still been very chilly. If you go out and about do dress warmly and stay safe.
