Office Hours in final two nights

The Studio Theatre production of Office Hours is getting lots of laughs.

The Studio Theatre production of Office Hours is getting lots of laughs but there are only two nights left to see the live production — tonight and tomorrow night.

Directed by Mary-Jo Hilyer and Micheal Hodgson Office Hours is a series of one-act plays written by Canadian playwright Norm Foster and offers lots of predicaments, and reason for having a good chuckle.  The cast includes Dexter Giesbrecht, Harry Jennings, Merla Monroe, Terra McGuire, Therisa Peimer, Tony Savile, and Shane Tollefson.

Tickets are available at About Face Photography.




St. Andrew’s

cookie walk




The annual  St. Andrew’s United Church Cookie Walk is coming up this Saturday, Nov. 26 in the church hall. The event runs from 10  to 11:30 a.m. Visitors receive a box when they arrive and walk around the room selecting from tables piled with a wide variety of homemade cookies for the holiday season and pay by weight as they leave the hall.

The cookie walk is a great way for the church to raise funds and helpful for those who don’t have time to make sweet treats for the holidays. The cookies sell out quickly so people are advised to arrive early.
