Minesing Moments by Lorrie Norwood

A few weeks into the New Year and the snow that we were supposed to get in our little community over Christmas just didn’t happen.  It accumulated all around Minesing, but here in our village, we just had a whole lot of wind.  I’m sure all of the skiers, snowshoers and snowmobilers are not too happy about it. Mild weather seems to be approaching again during the third week of January, so hopefully we get some cold weather in order for the ski resorts to make some snow!

Announcement:  Please join Dorothy Dunn in celebrating her 90th Birthday.  Open House Saturday January 28th, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Anten Mills Community Centre located at 3985 Horseshoe Valley Road.  Best Wishes Only please.

Minesing Mini-Fest News

The Community Recreation Committee has started planning this year’s festivities for Mini-Fest.  The theme for this year is Retro Sitcoms (TV Shows).  Events begin on Friday February 10th and continue on Saturday February 11th.  There will be bowling and euchre on the Friday night.  Saturday starts off with the Pancake Breakfast followed by the parade.  There will be Citizen and Youth of the Year, kids activities, colouring and bookmark contest and the popular Chili Cook-Off.  There will also be an adult dance on Saturday evening.  Watch for more details on the Minesing Community Facebook Page or in the next issue of the Springwater News – Minesing Moments.

Out Door Ice Rink – This year has been a tough year to start the outdoor rink due to the mild weather.  At the time of writing this, we just haven’t had the cold weather to create a base.  Once we have a few days and nights of nice cold weather, I’m sure the amazing volunteers of our village will be out working on creating this year’s ice surface.  I know it has been a rare season that no rink has been created but Mother Nature works in mysterious ways sometimes.  The Anten Mills outdoor rink is also not started this year and it has been many, many years since there was no ice there.  Here’s hoping things freeze up soon for our neighbouring communities so they too can enjoy the outdoor winter activity.

Until next time…Look for something positive in every day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.
