Yesterday’s paper

If you haven’t already picked up your copy of the December 9th issue of the Unity Wilkie Press-Herald and aren’t expecting it in your mailbox Monday, you will want to make sure to get a copy from one of the news stands. There is lots of Wilkie news this week, including:

  • a story on a Wilkie grandma who achieves her “bucket list” goal of publishing a children’s story;
  • a final farewell to Mann Farm Equipment;
  • an interview with Wilkie’s top curling official, Kevin Glessing who’s now doing national events;
  • hockey news, including details on how to dress for the Outlaws’ first home game in two seasons, coming up Friday, December 16.

Then, there’s a Heartland Health public health advisory on flu and whooping cough, the latest RCMP report, Blast From the Past and more!

Below, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas when you drive around the Town of Wilkie!Christmas lights in Wilkie SK
