Snow already…wow.  I bet that surprised many of the readers.  We knew it wouldn’t stick around but it’s a good reminder that winter isn’t far off.  Get those snow tires on and dig out your shovels and window scrapers.  Remember the early morning frost on the roads that can also make driving tricky and very dangerous.

First and foremost I want to address something that has been mentioned several times on the Minesing Facebook page.  The speed limit on Ronald Road and the roads surrounding the school.  Residents of Minesing, both young and old, this road is not a freeway.  This is a road that travels adjacent to the school, beside the community centre, beside several residences and beside the park/pavilion.  Please, please slow down!  There are families, children and cars turning into and out of the parking lot.  We realize everyone is busy, but someone’s life is not worth your extra thirty seconds you have gained while speeding down the street.  For those who have young drivers in their house, please read this to them.  We know they don’t read the newspaper so if you can please draw this to their attention it would be greatly appreciated.

PIN SETTERS NEEDED!  It’s that time of year for Men’s Bowling and these men need some pin setters.  The pin setters (hopefully 2 or more) should be 12 years of age or older to apply.   The league is on Monday nights beginning at 7:15.  If you have a student looking to earn some money, contact Earl Giffen at 705-728-2760   to get signed up.

The ghosts and goblins will be parading around the neighbourhood on October 31st, this being a weekend, we ask that EVERYONE be very careful if you are out driving.  Have fun and be safe kids!

The Minesing United Church is holding their Christmas Tea and Bake Sale on Saturday November 7th from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.  Tickets are on sale at the door and they are $6 per person.  Everyone is welcome and we look forward to seeing you there.

Until next time, let’s do lots of cheering for the Blue Jays!  Go Jays Go!
