The Neilburg branch of the Lakeland Library sponsored a storytelling session Aug. 9 with Danica Lorer as the guest artist. Children were encouraged to make up stories of their own, using their imaginations. In July the library hosted an afternoon where children could build with Legos and other construction toys, listen to stories and enjoy a snack. Remember to patronize your library this summer and participate in the summer reading program to win prizes. The annual community calendars are also ready for pick-up at the library.

Beulah will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her two children, Syd McIntosh of Marsden and Susan Walker of Winnipeg; two grandchildren, Tracy Kurtz and Ashley McIntosh; and her four great-grandchildren, Levi McIntosh, Kailey Kurtz, Tyra McIntosh and Kolby Kurtz. Donations in Beulah's memory can be made to the Brady Cemetery Fund.
