on the occasion of their
on behalf of the
Town and RM of Hamiota
Continued Health & Happiness!
Hamiota Minor Hockey
recently presented a cheque to
representatives of the Hamiota &
District Sports Complex in the
amount of $35,109.39, the net
profit realized from the Sports
Dinner held this past October.
The original idea for the dinner
was to raise money in order to aid
in the maintenance and operation
of the 20 year old facility.
The 305 guests enjoyed a roast
beef supper, and were entertained
Tom Mollard and Jerry Crampain, President and Secretary HDSC
by comedian Kelly Taylor, whose
humor was fitting for a rural Manitoba town. The evening continued with renowned sports broadcaster Rod Black.
Rod entertained the crowd, somewhat of a comedian himself, but ultimately the message he delivered was about the power
to believe, in sport or life in general. Raffles and a silent auction followed and the evening concluded with a live auction,
selling off items from chemical to patio furniture to autographed jerseys.

The Sports Dinner Committee would like to send a huge thank you out to all of the sponsors, supporters and workers of the
event. Sponsorship was given in the way of cash and in kind along with donated items and product, which were then used for
the raffle and auctions. The meal was provided by the Sports Complex, prepared by dedicated community members and
served with the assistance of students from Hamiota Collegiate. Students also assisted with selling raffle tickets and
escorting guests to their tables.
Thank You also to the families of the committee members who pitched in whenever needed!
Lastly, Thank You to the community and surrounding friends that attended.
It was fantastic to see such support for our Complex and greatly appreciated!

A Moment for Families with Pastor Orland Usick Strengthening your children’s prayer life…
Parents want the best for their kids and in the Bible there is a promise that shows that this is God’s desire as
well. Isaiah 54:13 says, “ All your children will be taught by the Lord, and great will be their peace.”
Our children can learn to listen to the voice of the Lord through prayer. Praying is not only talking to God, but it
can also be done by singing, dancing, drawing, painting or even playing a musical instrument or even sports. As
well you can teach your children that God will listen to anything.
If it is a concern to you!..... then it is a concern to Him!!
You can also pray anytime, anywhere out loud or quietly. You can call out to God when you are anxious or scared.
Reading the Bible is also prayer. People may ask “when should I pray?” The Bible says very clearly that we should
pray always! Philippians 4:4-7 in the Bible says; 4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your
gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer
and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all
understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. What a great promise of peace that God’s
presence brings in the many difficult moments of life. Lord Bless you this month.
