We hope each and everyone of you celebrated a wonderful holiday season.

Every year we take a look back at what we talked about over the year prior. So here goes.....

In January we told you about the Red Mailbox program. Initiated by Jen Klimack the program helps deal with ‘period poverty’ supplying free feminine hygiene product in a safe and confidential manner to be picked up from a red mailbox tacked onto the back entrance of the Anglican Church in Russell. A year later, the program is still running. Binscarth native Cody McLeod, his wife Jessica and girls Peyton and Emma were on hand as the AHL Iowa Wild honored their captain as he played the 1,000th game of his impressive 16 years in professional hockey. Early in January, the crew from Take a Year Off Lottery gathered together all the benefactors of the 2021 draw that had been made the previous November. That year 1,976 tickets were sold, just short of the 2,000 - tickets needed to sell out.
