The committee is also looking for volunteers to donate salads for the Beef on a Bun Supper on Saturday night.

The Gull Quilters have had very busy year making quilts and raising more than $1,500.00 for charities. The group finished a total of eleven quilts from scratch. Additionally, the group tied quilts for thirteen people, quilted for seven others, made one baby quilt, and repaired one damaged quilt. It was also a very trying year for us with the loss of one of our quilters, rest in peace Fran.
Donations this year went to the following:
Three children were sent to summer camp. Heart in Motion received $500.00 Rock Solid received $500.00 plus a quilt. Tompkins Wildfire victims received $500.00. A quilt was also donated to a house fire victim
The Quilting Club is looking for new members to join the group at the Seniors Hall. If you are interested in joining, please call Helen Hunt at (306) 672-3316. The Quilters would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone.
Thank you to Wim, Robert, Taylor Dutton, Sean Dutton, Matt Jones, Karlah Rae Rudolph, Dan, Glen Mollenback, Roman, Mark Kettner, and Kelsey Dutton who came out last night to put the houses and lines down. Without everyone’s help, this would have been a two-day job.
Thank you to all of our volunteers who have helped so far this year and previous years. Gull Lake wouldn’t have a Curling Rink without you!
The Gull Lake School Grade 8 Career Class were very busy yesterday giving the Rink a thorough cleaning. The class started cleaning last week and finished the job today. Recreation Director Sara Kuntz said, “the students did a fantastic job cleaning the rink getting it ready for the season”.
The Gull Lake Rink Board extends thanks to the Grade 8 students for all their help it was very much appreciated.
