The News and viewS would like to thank the Pilot Butte Recreation Board
in conjunction with Sask Lotteries Assistance Grant, for their generous
donation to our newsletter. This is the second time we have received the grant
and we are thrilled. This grant will continue to expand our News and viewS
with still more local content, some advertising, more appealing and interesting to
read. The Town of Pilot Butte has always supported the newsletter and in 2008, we received financial funding as well as continued support
in other ways. The R.M. of Edenwold also supplies the newsletter with financial funding and we use a portion of these funds to send copies of
the newsletters to some R.M. residents. This financial windfall (for us!) is enabling us to produce a larger, more attractive newsletter for your
enjoyment. We hope that we can continue to provide a quality of newsletter that makes us the ―must read‖ item each month.
We truly appreciate the support.

Household Hazardous Waste Day in Pilot Butte was a
huge success. Over 125 vehicles dropped off items that included paint, computers, prescription drugs, light bulbs, pesticides and even fire extinguishers and that number doesn’t
include the people who came back two or even three times.
The three technicians from Envirotec who were collecting the
material were overwhelmed with the response. An extra Envirotec employee and truck were sent for. Many thanks to the
volunteers from Town Council and from Town Staff who
worked so hard that day: Ed Zsombor, Sid Bowles, Don Leir,
Don Kistner, Gerhardt Ernst, Maureen Robinson, and Andre
Cote. Thanks also to
volunteer Scott Robinson for his hard work that day and to
Country Lane Care Home for providing muffins, coffee and
lunch for the volunteers.
This day, the cost of which would be anywhere from $8,000 to
$10,000, was paid for by the GoGreen Saskatchewan program. The following are just some of the materials collected:
47 propane tanks
750 paint cans
100 Kilograms of household batteries
500 Kilograms of car batteries
600 Kilograms of computers and parts
30 Kilograms of prescription drugs
95 Fluorescent light tubes
50 Kilograms of aerosol containers
150 Litres of antifreeze
100 Kilograms of pesticides
Thanks to everyone who took part for making this day such a
success and for
keeping all this material out of the landfill.

Helpful Healthy Hints for the Month of October
Obstacles to succeeding with exercise- and how to overcome them.

waking hours each day. An option is to half hour
segments a day. Exercise can boost energy so

Happy Halloween everyone! It’s
definitely been a “freaky” October
this year---most especially with the
weather. Unfortunately our much
anticipated trip to the Pumpkin Hollow had to be cancelled due to the
rain and snow but we plan to give it
another shot next year!
If you ask the preschoolers who to
call if a germ is out and making you
sick their overwhelming response
might be “Germ Busters!”. They
might also tell you that those germs
don’t stand a chance if you remember to wash your hands. We had fun
washing the germs “down the drain”
during week two at preschool and
learning the importance of “catching”
our sneezes and coughs in our elbows
instead of our hands.
Week three found us exploring a
much loved theme at preschool-Apples. We tasted different types
of apples, apple juice, dried apples,
apple pie filling, counted apple seeds
and the most fun of all was making
applesauce—a preschool tradition!
We are looking forward to our upcoming Halloween Costume party at
preschool! I’m not certain where the
preschoolers disappear each year
but we definitely have many surprising guests! See you next month!
Parent Tip: Working with your child in
the kitchen can open the door to discussions about what is safe and what isn’t.
While some parts of cooking are for only
grownups, other parts can be done by
children. Cooking helps develop vocabulary, math concepts of volume, numbers
and measurement and children can see
firsthand that heat can make some things
soft—a basic principle of science. Happy
4 medium apples, ½ cup
water, ¼ cup sugar, pan,

water, sugar and cinnamon. Simmer
15 minutes and mash with potato
masher. Cool and enjoy plain or on ice
THE GREEN WAY
The Green Way
Way to go Pilot Butte
(and area)! Our Household Hazardous
Waste Day was an overwhelming success, with huge quantities of waste
diverted from the landfill. To see a list
of the items dropped off, see the Town
website at www.pilotbutte.ca .
I found time in October to visit the
Crown Shred and Recycle plant in
Regina, and was extremely impressed
by the amount of product which they
process. The recycled paper is sorted
on a very fast-moving conveyor belt
by a team of workers, then split into
newsprint, cardboard, and a mix
thereof. Plastics are processed by culling the garbage which some people
toss with it, and plans are in the works
to produce plastic fence posts. Metals
are sent to another plant for recycling.
In the near future, they will be able to
by Sid Bowles
receive and process Styrofoam waste.
The Styrofoam will have to be
dropped off at their plant, and a small
fee paid to make it viable to bulk and
ship to Asia for re-use. Crown Shred
and Recycle help the workforce by
employing several dozen dedicated
staff in their Regina and Prince Albert
As you have likely noticed, our Post
Office no longer has a recycle bin in
the lobby. The staff were voluntarily
removing the recycling and driving it
to the recycle bins, at personal expense. Unfortunately, the postal staff
were finding it very difficult to handle
the volumes and heavy weight of paper from the bin, and no other solution
could be found. It is therefore now up
to us as responsible citizens to take all
our mailbox contents home, and recycle it with our personal recycling. I am
sure postal and

Pilot Butte & DISTRICT LIONS
What The Pilot Butte and District Lions are up to.........
The Pilot Butte Lions would like to
thank all people involved with the success of the 2nd annual Gettn Yer Kicks
Show and Shine this past September
In all 47 vehicles were registered with the lions for the show.
Truth be known there were closer to
57 vehicles on show that day. I hope
that all the residents of town that took
the time to stop by, enjoyed the free
show and appreciated the hard work
and determination of the vehicle owners/builders. Man what a display of raw
power and artistry. I was proud to be
a part of giving these people the stage
to show off their exceptional craft.
Many of these cars were built right
here in Pilot Butte. Who knew? The
Pilot Butte Lions would like to thank
coordinator, Larry Hornung for putting
together the band for the evening as
well as volunteering his services during
the day for registration, thanks Larry.
Also thanks specifically to members
of our community who provided their
vehicles for show, Thanks Helmut
Schick, Andy Folk, Ryan Heckerman,
Andrew McGill, Doug Adams, James
Seccuur , Kent Zummack, and Blair
and his son Scott Baller. Special
thanks to Kent for allowing us to use
his car on our poster WOW what a

away belonged to George Chow from

What do we do? If you are like most of us, finding time
to prepare a healthy, exciting and delicious meal for your
family isn’t always easy. We help simplify your life, while
you enjoy socializing with others and being productive at
the same time.
How? By helping you assemble 8 or 12 delicious and
healthy entrées (each entrée feeds 4-6 people) in 2 hours
or less! We do the planning, shopping, chopping, dicing,
and cleaning up for you. There is no cooking involved at
the session. You move from station to station until you
have assembled 8 or 12 different entrées ready to go home
Where? Sessions are held at Community Halls and
Locations throughout Regina and area. Private parties can
also be arranged per request.
Other Options: Individuals and smaller families have the
option to split each item into two smaller servings. And if
you can’t make it to a session, let us know and for $25, we
will assemble it for you.
And? Our menu changes every month so come back and

Some time during May approximately around MOTHERS DAY
Some ignorant persons decided they should STEAL my moms ceramic
angels from her flowerbeds.
These angels were given to her each year after my brother passed away
and some persons have also decided to continue to kick over my mom
flower pots and vandalize her yard. This is unnecessary.
SO MOMS OUT THERE if you received a ceramic angel for mothers day I
would APPRECIATE if you would RETURN them back to my mom JUDY
