This Week’s Riddle: I run cold but am hot, I look blue but am red. What am I?

Ding Dong!! Avon Calling!


Autumn is a season for big decisions -- like whether or not it's too late to start spring cleaning. Autumn -- time to drag out your winter clothes and see what kind of summer fun the moths had. The autumn leaves are a lot like raising kids. First they turn on you, and then they fly away. And next thing you know, you look out the window and they're back!

Call Bea Henry for your Avon needs at 403.485.4165. Conversation Café on Vulcan County Poverty Reduction Strategies October 15th 7:00-9:30 pm Vulcan Legion Vulcan’s Initiative to Achieve Better Living Environments (VIABLE) is inviting Vulcan County residents and interested parties to a Conversation Café on Oct. 15th to collaborate on poverty reduction strategies for our County. Some issues that may be discussed are: *Affordable housing *Transportation within the County *Health and wellness *Job creation Outcomes from the Café will be utilized to develop and implement our Action Plan to provide opportunities for sustainable living to Vulcan County residents living in low-income situations. So, for everyone who has a personal and/or professional interest in this important issue and wishes to contribute their ideas to the betterment of our community, please put your thinking caps on and participate in our Conversation Café. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Wendy Theodore at FCSS at 403-485-2106.

I got tired of looking at all those leaves in my yard, so I got up off the couch and went into action. I closed the curtains. I can hardly wait until all the leaves turn brown to match the grass. Ah yes, summer's out and autumn's in. From swimming pools to hockey pools.... Now, today’s lawn & garden tip. If you haven’t found the hedge trimmer yet, forget it. It’s almost time now to lose the leaf rake.

For all your financial needs, call 403.485.2268 today!!
