RM of White Valley and Eastend Wins The SMA

Recently at the SARM (Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities) convention held November 14th, James Leroy, Reeve of White Valley and Edna Laturnus, Administrator Town of Eastend were jointly presented with the Saskatchewan Municipal Award for Regional Cooperation for their work on branding and tourism work meant to aid local businesses. Instead of reporting on it myself, I'll let the wordsmiths at the Municipal Awards press release do the work on page 4.

Congratulations to the RM of White Valley and Town of Eastend for another gold star for the fridge!


Light Up The Valley Dec 1

It looks like I'll have to miss my chance to see Santa at Light Up the Valley this year as well as the delicious free hot chocolate at the rink, and no singing carols on the sleigh ride for me either. Well I'm sure it will be magical as always, and the lights around town should create the perfect mood to kick off the holiday season but you lucky people do get to be there so you will get to do all those things. Don't forget to post photos of your experience on your Instagrams and your Facebooks so people who can't be here can catch a glimpse!


No Echo Next Week

The next issue of the Eastend Echo will print the week of Dec 4th, as I am coming back that week travel delays may mean the paper is late. Thank you for your patience.


And Now An Old Joke...

Two broke and hungry best friends, Dave and John, go to a pastry shop.

Dave suddenly whisks three cookies into his pocket with lightning speed. The baker doesn't notice.

He says to John, "See how clever I am? You'll never beat that!"

John replies, "Oh yeah? Watch this."

He says to the baker, "Give me a cookie, I can show you a magic trick!"

The baker hands him a cookie which he promptly eats. Then he says to the baker: "Give me another cookie for my magic trick."

The baker is getting suspicious but he gives it to him. He eats this one too.

Then he says again: "Give me one more cookie... "

The baker is getting angry now but gives him one anyway. He eats this one too.

Now the baker is really mad, and he yells, "And where is your magic trick?!"

John points at Dave and says: "In that guy's pocket!"
