After 45 weeks, the Ace of Spades was captured October 27th by Dana Butland of Riverside-Albert. His ticket draw earned $1388, and the Jackpot was $23,178 for a total win of $24,566. A win such as this, or last year’s big win, is life changing for those few lucky folks. We hope that the Friday night gatherings of friends, old and new, sharing a delicious meal prepared by Stephen Land and a beverage, and playing cards or dice, or talking, is also valuable. We think the winters are long and the warmth of the Fundy Curling Club provides a social event each week with the possibility of winning a bit of money and knowing that any money spent stays in our communities.

Although Extra Mural has provided services to all ages and seniors for more 36 years, and it has worked well, the Gallant government plans to transfer Extra Mural services to Medavie Health Services. This means New Brunswick’s Extra Mural services will be operated by a private company, which is not subject to public scrutiny, nor to ‘right to information’ requests.
