n Saturday, March
19th the 50+ Centre was all a buzz with
the sound of sewing machines stitching comfort
with heartfelt kindness in
our communitys first ever
Quilts for Cancer event.
This was the fi rst time the
Minnedosa Valley Piecemakers have worked with
Victoria Quilts and the
event was a tremendous
success with 20 volunteers
coming together to make
12 quilts that will be donated to cancer patients in
our province.
The Minnedosa Valley
Piecemakers (MVP) have
been stitching in our valley community for over 20
years now creating beautiful quilts for worthy causes.
We have donated quilts to
the Personal Care Home,
palliative care, homecoming, the library, Save Our
Station and handmade
pillow cases for the womens shelter to name a
few, said Susan Glasgow,
spokeswoman for the
MVP. Many of the quilts
are for patients and the elderly to comfort and keep
them warm, while others
are used for raffles to raise
money, fetching anywhere
from $800-$2,500 for a
well-made
handcrafted
quilt. Many of the guild
members of the MVP have
family members or friends
that have been affected
by cancer at one time or
another. One of the guild

members lost her motherin-law to cancer and so she
decided to donate a quilt
she made to the Victoria
Quilts in her memory. It
was a very moving experience for her and she felt it
would be a good mix for
the two groups to work
together. Helping Victoria Quilts is such a grati-

fying experience for all of


us. Knowing these quilts
are given to individuals in
their cancer journey with
hopes of warming and lifting their spirits and making their days brighter
makes it so worthwhile,
commented Susan.
In October of 1999,
Victoria Quilts was estab-

lished in Canada with a


goal of providing handmade quilts to people with
cancer across the country.
The quilts provide not only
physical comfort to those
dealing with cancer, but
they also bring a sense of
spiritual comfort in knowing that they are not alone
in their struggle.
The

Neepawa branch is one of


25 across Canada, and is
the only one in all of Manitoba. Since its inception
in Neepawa in September
of 2013, they have donated
110 quilts to patients in the
36 surrounding communities.

35th Rolling River Festival of Arts A Success


By JEFF PEARSON

hanks to the hard work


of a few dedicated
community
volunteers,
the Rolling River Festival
of the Arts was another
success here in Minnedosa. The community of Rivers was supposed to host
the event this year, but
was unable to get enough

volunteer help. The judging and performances occurred March 14th to 18th
at the Minnedosa Community Conference Centre
and the Minnedosa United
Church.
Th e RRFA is a nonprofi t volunteer based organization, which provides
a venue for student performance and adjudication in

the following disciplines:


piano, speech arts, band,
instrumental, vocal, choral and dance. The arts
are such an important part
of our lives. They teach
us many valuable lessons
and help prepare us for
the future, commented
Minnedosa Mayor Ray Orr.
Th e festival really
helps to inspire the many

young talented individuals in our community to


continue persuing their
dreams with 14 scholarships up for grabs.
For 35 years, the RRFA
has been providing an opportunity for area students
to showcase their various
talents.

the swamps and brings
back Princess Winnifred.
Dauntless and Winnifred
make a delightful connection and fall in love.
Th e queen is horrifi ed and with the help of
her trusted confident, the
Wizard, immediately begins to devise a test that
will ensure the failure of
yet another princess. Fortunately, Winnifred, with
some help from Sir Harry,
the King and the Jester,
isnt going to be quite so
easy to get rid of.
Once Upon a Mattress
opened on Broadway in
1959, with a young Carol
Burnett playing the role of

Princess Winnifred. Since


then, it has been performed on stages around
the world by professionals
and amateurs alike, and
has been adapted for television in 1964, 1972 and
2005. Burnett starred at
Winnifred in the first two
adaptations and as Queen
Aggravaian in the most
recent installment. It also
appears of the resume of
other famous actors, like
Elliot Gould, Bernadette
Peters, Zoey Deschanel,
Matthew Morrison of Glee
fame, Sarah Jessica Parker,
Jane Krakowski and Tracey Ullman.

Cameron Connection Celebrating 25 Years

Cameron Connection in 1992


(L-R): Barry McNabb, Shirley Dyck, Andrea Playter,
Elaine Thomson and Jim Comrie.
By JEFF PEARSON

he first time I experienced this amazing vocal group Cameron


Connection, was when
they graced the stage to
open the Variety Concert
held February 11th at the
St Marks Anglican Church.
Little did I know at the time
that this dynamic group
had such a long vibrant
history in our community
and that 2016 marked their
25th anniversary!
Cameron Connection
has seen a few member
changes over the years like
the seasons of any entertaining groups life, currently the members consist
of James Comrie (Bass),
Barry McNabb (Tenor),
Mary Dalton (Alto), Andrea
Playter (Soprano), Nicole
McLenehan (Keyboards)
and Marc Chisholm (Guitar). Way back in 1991, the
Minnedosa United Church
AOTS mens club needed
some entertainment for
one of their events and
original members, James
Comrie, Barry McNabb
and Elaine Thomson, all
from the Cameron District along with Eleanor
Taylor and Shirley Dyck
decided to put together a
few pieces just for the love

of music, and ever since


Cameron Connection has
been entertaining audiences all over Manitoba
and Saskatchewan. Other
past members of the group
over the years include Judy
(Northam) Olson, Barb
Dowsett and Val Gamey.
The group has had
many memorable performances, but a few really stand out for them. In
1994, they entertained for
the Christmas Open House
at the Legislative buildings.
They were pleased to again
be invited to the Legislature in 2002 to entertain at
a private gala reception at
Government House in the
presence of the Lieutenant Governor and in honor of the members of the
Order of Manitoba. They
performed in front of an
international audience of
several thousand people
at the Brandon Keystone
Centre for the Olympic
World Curling event in
1995. A violent storm crept
up on their 1998 Canada
Day performance at the
Minnedosa Beach Pavilion
sending the audience running for cover while chairs
were being hurled around
by the wicked winds and
group members exited the
stage just in the nick of

time to narrowly escape


electrocution from the
torrential downpour that
ensued. They opened for
the Alexander Brothers in
2005 at the Westman Centennial Auditorium and in
July of 2007 they played at
Clear Lake for the Music in
the Park Festival.
In the fall of 1999,
after nearly 10 years together and many performances under their belts,
fans were wanting a CD,
so Cameron Connection
decided it was time to hit
the studio. They decided
on 15 tracks to record
from their large repertoire
of songs and they worked
with Del Clark at Studio
One Recording to put the
tracks on CD. There was
a tremendous amount of
work involved to create a
marketable recording in a
studio setting which was
much different than performing live. Each member was recorded individually on their own track
and then the final tracks
were put together to form
the recorded song. As you
can imagine, it takes several tries to get it perfect.
The group went with a 500
CD and 500 Cassette package, the CDs have all been
sold but there are still a

LOCAL HERO PASSES...

With this weeks edition we note the passing of Mark


Cameron at the age of 45. Mark was somewhat of a local
hero and celebrity and well known in our community. At
an early age, Mark beat cancer as a result of new, experimental cancer treatments. This treatment left him with a
number of side effects but did not slow Mark down from
living and enjoying life to the fullest. He was often spotted out and about with his parents Neil and Olive Cameron and was a member of Terrys team during the local
Minnedosa Terry Fox Run each September.

Filling the Rec shoes

With Minnedosas current Rec Director, Lisa Buchanan going on maternity leave next month, the Rec
Commission advertised the position of Rec Director and
interviewed a number of worthy applicants. The successful applicant chosen to take over the Rec Director position is Nicole Synshyshyn.

BE CAREFUL ONLINE

A report in the
Trail Times from Trail, BC is a good
reminder for all of us that everything you see on Facebook is not always true and factual. Two young women
recently posted a photo on Facebook of a man drinking
coff ee at a fast food restaurant stating that he was taking their photo and acting suspicious and warning others
about him. As the post circulated through facebook as a
warning, the man in question contacted the RCMP and
it was determined he was just an innocent patron enjoying a cup of coffee but became a target of false accusations by the girls Facebook post. Obviously incidents
like this can happen anywhere to anyone. Posting false
information or a personal opinion or rant about another
person or their business can be embarrassing, devastating and ruin reputations not only for the subject but also
their family and friends. Remember, ANYONE can go on
Facebook and post ANYTHING about ANYONE whether
there is truth in it or not. Others soak it up and the rumours begin spreading like wildfi re. Just because you
read it on Facebook doesnt mean its true!

DARRYL A.HOLYK - PUBLISHER AND EDITOR

Former Resident Recalls Memories of


Living In Pearson Block/Bruce Building
Dear Editor,

Letters to
the Editor

his building was the


only place in Minnedosa that was my home. When
we moved to Minnedosa in
1966, we lived in two suites
on the south side of the
building. Dad and Mom operated the Marshall Wells
store. Dad and Mom had made the move from Winnipeg where he had been the Warehouse Manager
for Marshall Wells.
While the building serves many fond memories
for me, there are three historical references about the
building that I would like to share.
The fi rst is the vault. When my parents bought
the building we found that the original use was a
bank. There was an old vault at the back of the building with a thick metal door. On the inside of this door
was a record attached to it of the dates that it had
been inspected. I recall most or all of these dates to
be in the 1890s. I am not sure if the door is still in
the building or not, but if it is and the inspections are
still on the door, they should be preserved or at least
photographed.
The second was the use of the upstairs. When my
parents decided to replace the old storage structure
that had been attached to the rear of the building,
they had to dig a new foundation. When the digging had started, a large amount of old glass bottles
were found under the old foundation. We collected

as many of these as we could


find and were told that there
used to be a dance hall on
the second fl oor. As there
was no alcohol sold, the
men would come outside to
drink and discarded all of
the glass bottles in this area.
My parents didnt keep these bottles but they were
sold to a local collector.
The third is the bricks on the building. There is
a brick on the north side of the building, close to the
entrance of the main store, where you can see where
the stone mason had used a chisel or splitter to break
the stones. There is a round mark, very smooth, that
runs to about 1/3 of the brick. I am sure if someone
looked close enough that there would be more of
these as well. I had lived in the building for many
years before I knew of this stone. It was only when
Angus Fraser, who lived in one of the suites, pointed
it out to me that I knew of its existence.
While the building will always be a great memory for me, I do not believe that it could be saved.
Progress isnt a bad thing and perhaps a few of the
bricks of note could be saved for the local museum.
Sincerely,

Larry Bruce,
Winnipeg, MB

The Right To Clean Water


Dear Editor,

aving clean, drinkable water is a wonderful blessing for those of us living in Brandon. When I realize there are over a 1,000 boil-water advisory Indigenous Communities across this Canada, it reminds me
that reconciliation talk means we make this issue of

Monsters Book Fair Surpasses Expected Goal


By JEFF PEARSON

he annual Tanners
Crossing Book Fair
was held March 14th to
18th in the TCS pit area
with tables of books looking for young readers to
adopt them. This years
theme was Monsters and
with the amount of frightfully good books that were
purchased it beat their
goal of $5,000 by nearly a
thousand raising a whopping $5,950. This means
the book fair was one of the
most successful ever!
Traditionally the book
fair is in November, but due
to the tremendous success
of this years event it will
be held in March again
next year. The Scholastic
Book Fair is run by the Parent Advisory Council with
a purpose of promoting
literacy and all purchases

benefi t the school. TCS


gets 60% of the sales back
in product from Scholastic (books and resources
for the school) and 20% of
sales back in cash for the
Parent Advisory Council
to use for things such as
Open House, Family Fun
Night, Tabloid Day and any
items the students may
need during the school
year.
Th is years Monster
theme was exciting to work
with as volunteers put up
decorations and contests
for the students. Small
Monsters were placed
under random chairs in
classrooms and those students that happened to
fi nd one under their chair
were entitled to a display
poster at the end of the fair.
The classes visited the fair
during the week and there
was a draw for a free book

Over the past few
months, police in multiple
jurisdictions have received
complaints from residents
who say they were phoned
by someone pretending to
be a police officer in order
to obtain personal information from them. While
there are various versions
of this fraud, most involve
callers asking for payment
for outstanding fines or
minor off ences. If you receive such a call, it is a
scam. Police remind citizens that they do not ask
for financial information
and do not accept payment for infractions over
the phone.
As more and more
citizens choose to communicate online, police

have seen an increase in


the proliferation of illegal
online activities. A recent
scam that has surfaced
involves victims in chat
rooms being tricked into
sending explicit photos
of themselves to the person they are chatting with
online. After gaining the
victims trust, the scammer threatens to post the
photos to the victims social media accounts unless payment is received.
Police are concerned that
young people could fall
victim to this scam and are
advising parents to speak
with their children about
internet safety and what
they share online.
These are just a few
examples of recent frauds
being perpetrated by techsavvy criminals. If you
believe you have been
the victim of fraud please
contact the local police in
your area. For more information on fraud prevention, please visit the RCMP

Back In Time With Patsy Cline


By DARRYL HOLYK

ountry music fans


who were not fortunate enough to see Patsy
Cline live in concert before
her untimely death in a
plane crash on March 5th,
1963 were treated to the
next best thing at Strathclairs Bend Theatre last
Saturday night. The Strathclair and District Theatre
Committee presented The
InClines Sweet Dreams of
Patsy Cline, as part of their
2015-2016 Season ticket
Series. Th e tribute show
featured Manitobas own
Michelle Anseeuw playing
the iconic role of the legendary country music star.
Th roughout the evening, Michelle and her
band entertained the
crowd with songs recorded
by the young lady who had
one of the most powerful
and unique voices in not
only country music, but all
genres of music. Although
Patsys amazing vocal abilities were silenced at the

age of 30, the Grand Ole


Opry legends voice continues to astonish people
some fifty years later.
In addition to Patsys
biggest hits, such as Crazy
and I Fall to Pieces , the
InClines also performed
a number of less-known
Cline classics that only
true Patsy fans may have
known. Songs such as
Always, Seven Lonely Days,
Faded Love, Strange, Bill
Bailey Wont You Please
Come Home and South
of the Border all featured
Michelle mimicking Patsys unique vocal style.
Th roughout the evening,
in addition to the music, highlights of Patsys
life were narrated for the
crowd.
Following intermission, Michelle and her
backup singers, siblings
Neil and Karen Keep,
brought some other special guests to the theatre.
First was the hilarious hillbilly antics of Cousin Ethel

appearance complete with

The show closed with
sounds of a radio broadcast from March 1963 announcing the plane crash
which claimed the lives
of Patsy and fellow country music stars Hawkshaw
Hawkins and Cowboy
Copas. Michelle then appeared centre stage surrounded by fog and illuminated only by back lighting
to perform Patsys haunting classic, Sweet Dreams.
Following a standing

ovation, and before going


out to the lobby to meet
fans, the InClines closed
their performance with

for another Patsy Patsy

By ZELDA FIRBY

aster greetings to all former residents of the Basswood


area who receive the Tribune and especially those in
the Minnedosa Care Home.
Deepest sympathy is extended to Neil and Olive
Cameron and family of Minnedosa and relatives on the
passing of son and brother Mark Cameron.
Word has been received of the death of Rose Marie
Gowlett (Martin) at the Kingston General Hospital on
March 10th. Rose was the daughter of the late Frank and
Violet Martin, who farmed north and west of Basswood
before moving to Dauphin.
Deepest sympathy is extended to Mark and Mary
Ida Donohoe and family and Andy and Stacie Cardy and
family on the passing of their father and grandfather Tom
Herbert of Melita, MB on Sunday.

reg Nesbitt, the Progressive Conservative


candidate for Riding Mountain, said the announcement this week that a new
PC government will take
urgent steps to recruit and
retain more doctors is very
welcome news for residents of the constituency
he hopes to represent after
the April 19th provincial
election.
PC Leader Brian Pallister said in the announcement that a government
under his leadership would
set a goal to have the most
improved doctor retention
rate in its first term.
Manitoba is facing
more doctor shortages and
we have the worst record
for doctor retention in the
country, said Pallister. We
train doctors but many
leave quickly for other destinations. We need to stop
the revolving door and
work collaboratively with
all our stakeholders to develop a recruitment and

retention plan that delivers


results.
Nesbitt said Riding
Mountain residents know
all too well the revolving
door when it comes to physicians.
All the communities
in Riding Mountain have
experienced doctor shortages at one time or another,
and several are experiencing a shortage right now,
said Nesbitt. My home
community of Shoal Lake
currently has only one doctor, the emergency room is
closed and acute care services are not offered. Later
this spring the remaining
doctor is retiring.
A PC government
would achieve their goal
by:
Creating a more collaborative recruitment environment that focuses on
a team-based approach,
Hiring experts in effective recruitment processes including foreign recruitment of practice-ready
doctors,
Promoting home-

tion (CIHI), Manitoba also


has the worst doctor retention rate in Canada.
Manitoba is the best
place to live, stressed Pallister. We need to make
sure doctors know this too.
Meanwhile, in Dauphin on March 19th, Pallister announced that a
new PC government would
reduce ambulance fees in
half in their first term.
Seniors and other patients needing care should
expect a paramedic at their
door, not a $500 bill in the
mail, said Pallister. Thats
just wrong.

TAX TIP
I

f you are wondering whether you should purchase or


lease a new piece of equipment for your farm or business, there are a number of factors to consider. These include available financing options, overall after-tax cost
and which option best meets your cash flow requirements. Leasing versus buying certain assets will result
in a greater tax benefit than others. Your professional tax
advisor can help you evaluate your options. For more information, contact your local MNP office.

tradition in my family
has
always
been
the customary ritual of
decorating eggs for Easter.
As far back as history can
take us, the egg seems to
have always been a symbol
of continuing life and
resurrection.
Therefore,
it was natural to decorate
them and give out as gifts
for part of the feasting after
the solemn fast of Lent.
Although it is now more
contemporary to exchange
chocolate or candy eggs,
many families still carry
out the historic practice of
using real eggs. However,
what is to become of all the
excess hard-boiled eggs
other than the habitual egg
sandwich?
Allow me to give
you a few examples that
will hopefully inspire some
culinary creativity in your
kitchen.
A
quick
and
simple idea would be to

crumble them to garnish


salads. This would not
only add bright colours
to the salad, but is also
a fantastic way to add
additional
protein.
Crumbled eggs are also
vivid garnishes for stir-frys
or around the outer edge
of a platter of rice. Add a
splash of freshly chopped
parsley over the rice, and
you will have transformed
the bland grains into
something more attractive.
The crumbled mix of white
and yellow is much more
eye appealing than twotoned slices of egg.
Egg slices are
better used along with
spinach and cheese rolled
inside the middle of a pork
loin for a stuffed roast that
is extraordinary. Egg slices
can also be layered in
many different casseroles.
If one were to
search the internet or
visit the local library,

they would discover a


variety of hard-boiled
egg recipes. They will
include a number of egg
and cheese dips, pickled
eggs, and many versions of
deviled eggs. For example,
try combining the yolk
mixture for deviled eggs
with smoked salmon
before stuffing back into
the egg white halves for a
delicious change.
My
favourite
hard-boiled egg recipe is
Scotch Eggs. This Scottish
recipe is prepared by
encasing hard-boiled eggs
with sausage meat. They
are then rolled in a mixture
of cracker crumbs and
fresh chopped parsley, and
baked in the oven. Once
cooled, they are sliced into
quarters for a sensational
presentation.
Hopefully all of
this egg inspiration will
keep your mind from
questioning, what was
cooked first - chicken or
the egg?
Dear Chef Dez,
I hate making
hard-boiled eggs. I find
it difficult to peel them
without
having
huge
chunks of the cooked
white staying attached to
the shell pieces. Also, they

always have that green


ring around the yolk. Are
there any tricks to help
me?
Janet C.
Dear Janet,
Firstly,
when
selecting eggs to boil, one
wants to make sure they
are choosing older eggs
rather than the freshest
ones. This is because over
a period of time more air
develops between the shell
and the shell membrane,
and thus making it easier
to peel. Also try rolling the
cooked egg on the counter
with some gentle pressure
to makes cracks all over
the surface, and then peel
under cool running water.
The green ring
indicates
a
chemical
reaction between the iron
in the yolk and the sulfur
in the white. This happens
when the egg is either
cooked too long, or at too
high of a temperature. Try
adjusting your cooking
time and plunge them
into an ice water bath
immediately to stop the
cooking process.

A Smear Free Solution For Stainless Steel Appliances

onto the back of a wooden
spoon. Use the convex
side of the spoon to spread
the lotion onto skin.

When a recipe calls for

recipe by only using one
egg white. Instead I add
one teaspoon of cold water to one egg white. Beat
