Congratulations to Clinton Fuchs who scored a hole in one on the eighth hole while golfing at the Kananaskis golf course, Mount Kid, AB on June 5. His three golf buddies witnessed the fantastic accomplishment and, incidentally, the course Marshall was also watching the foursome. There now is a plaque at the golf course with Clint’s name on it. Clinton is the son of Lorne Fuchs and grandson of Gail Fuchs, former Dubuc residents now living in Esterhazy.
Congrats to Dubuc area farmer, Marty Nagy, who won supper in the field, through a contest on GX94, on Wed., June 6.

The meal of roast beef, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, gravy, mixed vegetables, buns, three salads, raw veggies with dip, fruit also with dip, black forest cake and beverages was enjoyed by all. Besides the meal, gifts from Sobey’s, the Painted Hand Casino, New Holland and GX94 were left behind to be enjoyed by the lucky winner.
The monthly community potluck was held on the second Wednesday of June with 25 persons in attendance at the Hut on Main St. Darlene Yuke couldn’t make it but sent several home cooked dishes for the locals to enjoy as part of the bountiful and very delicious supper. The McAlpines came out as the big winners of the night when Ron won the Door Prize and Melba took home the 50/50 raffle proceeds. Better get a lottery ticket, quick, before the luck runs out!
Lorne and Marlene Miller of Parksville, BC were guests at the home of Audrey and Peter Nielsen from Tues to Mon. a week ago.

They thoroughly enjoyed attending coffee rows, the potluck supper, visiting with former neighbours, renewing old friendships and making new ones.
