It’s the August Long Weekend and anyone that doesn’t have to work is no doubt looking forward to three full days of R & R. It even looks like the weather might cooperate for a change calling for sunshine and temperatures in the mid 20’s. There are several events happening in our area, with social distancing and safety protocols in place. There are Farmer’s Markets in just about every town around. Minnedosa has an event on Main Street today to raise money for flood victims in their community. Saturday and Sunday there are tons of activities at Oak Lake Beach raising money for their new sprinkler system. If car shows are more your speed then join the Souris Classic Cruizers at the Souris Fairgrounds Saturday from 4-6pm. If you’re looking for me I’ll be at the cabin planted in my lawn chair soaking up some sun and enjoying the breeze off the lake.
