Alfred Peigan honoured at fowl supper.

Pasqua - A fowl supper and turkey shoot put on by the Pasqua Band ladies to raise funds for minor hockey and children's Christmas party was held recently and was a great success.

For this occasion, they also celebrated the birthday of Alfred Peigan, who became 75 years old. Mr. Peigan is the only original life-time councillor that is left on the reserve, who stood with Chief Ben Pasqua and councillor Strongeagle some decades ago. The band presented him with a gold pocket watch and many other gifts were presented to him by relatives and friends.

The ladies were very happy about their first successful adventure and made approximately $250.00. They would like to thank everybody for the donations and the turnout they received for this occasion.
