"Open Farm Day - Sept 19". Spend a day on the farm and discover your rural routes"! Everyone in Canada is welcome to take their interest and their families to the hundreds of farms nation-wide that are participating in a meet-and-greet day. Manitoba's participation is being planned through the Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives (MAFRI) office. There are 35 farms in Manitoba taking part and Manitoba Agriculture's website shows a map with locations of these 35 numbered farms and directions. Go to and click Open Farm Day in the right column.

Locally, Ian Smith's Natural Raised Pork will be the centre of attention this Sunday, Sept. 19, with an Open House on the Farm from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ian's farm is one of the 35 participating farms. Ian is one of a very small number of pig-farmers that are able to open their doors to the public, because he raises his pigs "the old-fashioned way" and doesn't have to be concerned about bio-security like the larger farms. Ian will be pleased to introduce you to his humanely-raised and happy pigs! He sells half-carcasses from his farmgate (actually, it's cut and wrapped at the St. Laurent abbatoir, then Ian delivers -- really full-service!!) and he has customers all over the province; Ian also participates at select Winnipeg Farmer's Markets. At Sunday's Open House, Ian will be pleased to show off his farm operation and serve you complimentary ham-on-a-bun, with his mother Audrey's wonderful fresh-baked buns! Don't miss it! Directions are easy: from the junction of PR322 and PR323 on the East side of Argyle (where the 322 pavement turns and goes into Argyle), Ian is just 3 miles straight north of that intersection, with a sign at his farm. Check out his website

Nearby farms/agribusinesses also participating are Riddell's Roasters and Rubby Ducky Resort & Campground.

At Riddell's, owners Rudy and Leslie Reimer will open their poultry and new aqua-culture rainbow trout fish farm from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. with tours taking place at 11:30 a.m., 1 p.m., 2:30, and 4 p.m. Their farm is located on the north side of Hwy 67, watch for Riddell's Roasters sign. Just around the corner from there on the old Warren Road (#76.5) is Rubber Ducky Resort and Campground. Owners Dennis and Sherri Crockatt will give you tours from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and you will learn from them how they built their business from a traditional farm operation and made it into a very popular agri-tourism destination featuring camping and trout fishing. Finish off the day by taking in the Annual Warren United Church Fall Supper from 3:00-6:30pm which takes place at the Warren Memorial Hall, with takeouts available at the Warren Fire Hall Multipurpose Room Area.

Fall suppers are a Prairie tradition and began as "fowl suppers" at the turn of the century when rural one room school districts or churches each had their annual suppers and as those disappeared the tradition was carried on by church and community groups. Every autumn, rural residents killed chickens and geese, baked pies, found local halls or one-room schools big enough to hold everyone and celebrated a bountiful harvest. Over the years, fowl supper chickens and geese have been replaced by turkeys, meatballs, ham, etc. I find it quite fitting that Open Farm Day is held at this time of year as many communities all around our province are planning and holding their suppers in the next few weeks. Although harvest this year may not be bountiful, not yet finished, or even a reason for celebration (just ask someone who has been stuck in the field several times) our Churches and community and school groups are running these buffet banquets as annual fundraisers to pay for much needed expenses, and to benefit our community. These groups rely on the people in their communities to attend whether it be to enjoy the delicious meal, or volunteer, and in many cases, both. Its events like these is what keeps small towns vibrant, with everyone working together and also a chance for us to showcase our communities, our facilities, and our rural farming areas for those that come from a distance or an urban area. And even better, where can you find a delicious homemade meal (topped off with a piece of pie!) for ten bucks!!

Argyle's own Annual Fall Supper will take place in the Argyle Community Hall on September 26 from 3- 6:30 p.m. Cost is $10 for adults, $5 for children 6-12 years of age and for children 5 and under - free. Takeouts available and no reservations required. The Brant Argyle Advisory Council for School Leadership (BAACSL) would like to thank the community for all of their help over the last 5 years. Once again, this will be a Community Fall Supper and the proceeds from the Fall Supper will be shared amongst the community organizations. Volunteers are needed to work a shift on Sunday, Sept. 26th, as well cookers for turkeys, stuffing, potatoes and turnips. As always, donations of pies are greatly appreciated. For further information or to contact to have your name put on the list of volunteers, call Tracy @ 383-5219 or Brenda @ 383-5237.

Argyle Community Centre will be holding it's 2nd Annual Pumpkin Fest on Sat Oct 9 taking place from Noon - 4:00 pm. There will be games, crafts, face painting, tattoo's, fish pond , pumpkin decorating contest, barrel rides, balloon animals, farmers market, canteen and much more. Watch for posters. If you would like to volunteer for this event there is a sign- up sheet at the Argyle General Store and Meridian Trail General Store.

That's all for this week....keep the news coming....if you have any community news items, club news, family news, congratulations, etc. that you would like to share through this column please contact me @ 467-8750 or email @ before Monday evening.

Would you like to help establish a cairn to permanently recognize the location of the former Little Red School (Greenridge School District No. 211)?

The school remained open in the early 1900s but closed in 1914 when the new 2-storey Gunton school was built.

By the way, has anyone else noticed the larger number of dead skunks on the roads? With the heavy and constant rainfall, many ditches and culverts are full so the poor little critters have to head for the highway instead of sneaking around unseen.

Lake Francis

Arlene Oliver - 383-5887

With school back in and the first day of Autumn looming, September 22, the colors of the season are evident all along the roadsides. The grasses of summer have turned golden and brown and the leaves are shades of yellow, crimson and burnt orange. The geese are beginning to fly around more and frost is very likely now. The clouds drifted on by this Monday morning and I am not even going to mention that dreaded word, except to say we need a few good weeks of drying and sunshine and time is running out!

It's nearly that time once again cowboys and cowgirls to get out those spurs and that saddle and mosey on down to the Lake Francis corral as Lake Francis is once again proud to be hosting the Manitoba Ranch Rodeo Finals on September 25th and 26th. The rodeo starts on both days at 1:00 pm. On Saturday, September 25th gates open at 10:00 am for the gymkhana events, chicken scramble, supper and dance. On Sunday the gates open at 8:00 am for the pancake breakfast, Men's barrel racing, and the MRRA Awards Luncheon. There will be lots of entertainment for the whole family so watch for posters on this coming event or call Dawn-Rae for information at 383-5148.

Thank you to Vivian for her email on my grandson starting school. This was Viv's last first day of school since her youngest, Michelle, is in grade 12 this year, and so it goes both ways, and brings about a little sigh as we reflect from beginning to end.

That's about all for now. Some people have just thought retiring from farming for this year might be the thing to do. This waiting game with the weather is getting on everyone's nerves, yet there is nothing anyone can do. It's a good time to take a break and get away or go fishing for a few days!


South Interlake Regional Library Bookmobile will be at the Stonewall Lions Manor on September 20th from 10:45 to 11:10 a.m. Info call 467-5767.

Grosse Isle

Jessie Minaker 467-7684

Under conditions that could have been much better, those that took part in the Hike and Bike Day had an enjoyable time. The start of the trail was muddy but their endurance was great. The children's games were a big hit, under the guidance of Dorothy Braun. She made sure that everyone won a prize. The food booths were very busy. Thanks to the volunteers, you know who you are, the day was successful.

Fall Supper Season is upon us, Warren holds their's this Sunday, September 19th. Argyle is the next Sunday and Grosse Isle and Meadows host their's on Sunday October 3rd. If you plan it right you may not have to cook Sunday Dinner for weeks.


Joy Oliver - 375-6694

Our Korean exchange student had to transfer to Winnipeg. It was sad to see him go, but he required a school on the semester system to be able to receive both his grade 11 and 12 courses needed to attend University in Canada. He was a very nice young man. We hope to have him come back and visit some time over the next 10 months.

We attended the Woodlands Ranch Rodeo for the first time. We were never able to go before due to other scheduled events on the same weekend. It was a great family event. I was very impressed with the barrel racing. It is amazing the control those little riders have over such a large animal. The riders were as young as 18 months. Although his parents had the reins and he was bouncing like a basketball, he rode like a pro with a smile from ear to ear. Going around her last barrel, Whitney reached out to steady a wobbling barrel and still finished her ride in under 15 seconds. I wished we could have stayed for the whole day, but we had to take our foreign student to his new home. If all works out, I believe we will be going to Lake Frances for the Finals September 25th - 26th. Hope to see you all there!

The boys' exhibition volleyball game in Maples last week went very well. The team is starting to gel nicely. We can look forward to a good season. This weekend they are traveling to Virden for a tournament.

Cross country is going strong with practices at noon and Friday mornings. The first meet of the year is September 22nd in Assiniboine Park.

Stony Mountain

Wendy Pilcher 782-7575

What happened.....Fall came so quickly!. Have you noticed that you can barely tell this year's young apart from the parent geese? The robust colours of summer flowers is lending way to the beautiful fall foilage. The rustle of fallen leaves, the closing up of cottages, kids back in school, the honking of geese, the uprooting of gardens and the farmers are busy in the fields.

There are many fall suppers happening throughout the Interlake and Winnipeg.

The Warren United Church Fall Supper is Sunday, September 19th, from 3:00-6:30pm at the Warren Memorial Hall. Take-out meals are available at the Warren Firehall Multipurpose Room Area. For more information, contact Doris Hunter at 322-5639.

Stony Mountain Child Care Centre has had a very busy summer. With the help of the Stony Mountain and District Wildlife Association we were able to replenish our backyard with new beach sand. Their contribution was greatly appreciated. The children have lots of fun building tunnels, sand sculptures and sand cakes. Over the summer, our preschool and school age centres were able to go on two field trips. In July, we went to the Selkirk Children's Festival. This is always a lot of fun. There is always many things the children can explore at the festival. To wrap up our summer, in August we went to Tinkertown. The weather was absolutely perfect for us. It's hard to believe that the summer program is over and our fall program has begun. If anyone is interested in placing an order, we are currently selling Scoop-a-lot as one of our fall fundraisers. Please stop by the center and pick up an order form.
