Is anyone else looking at the calendar and double checking that it is indeed the end of September? It seems that once again summer has come and gone and we now embrace the cool air that is a telltale sign that fall has officially joined us.
The fall season comes with a long list of events and activities that will have this community moving. The usual fall suppers and the winding down of the Charleswood Broncos football season are just a few of the things on the list.
This also happens to be the time of year where we hide everything that is outdoors, or at least cover the items that the inevitable winter white will cover. Once these tasks are complete there are really only a few options for entertainment until we emerge from the snow globe next spring.
Now, I am crossing my fingers Mother Nature does not deliver our snowy package until a few more weeks down the line, but just in case, here are a few things to keep you busy alongside a cup of hot chocolate.

The Broncos football club will be winding down the regular season in just over a week, with playoffs to follow. Last week the club had teams ranked in second and third place and other teams a little further down the standings.
It’s all for the love of the game, but for those keeping score, the Broncos’ playoff push could be very interesting.
Save your voice from cheering at other Winnipeg football games and join the Broncos on the sidelines as they wrap up another successful season.

The Charleswood Hawks are returning champions this hockey season after securing the 2011-12 Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League crown last winter.
The 2012-13 MMJHL season recently got underway, and after only one game into the regular schedule there are definitely hopes of skating away with another title. A majority of the home games will take place at Charleswood’s Eric Coy Arena. For the complete schedule visit; http://mmjhl.charleswoodhawks.org.

Colours are changing, and I don’t mean the ones that are part of McDonalds renovations at Charleswood Centre.
I am referring to the leaves which hang from the trees surrounding us. I encourage you to embrace the celebrations that are a part of holidays like Thanksgiving and Halloween. Rake up your leaves, or assist a neighbour and jump in… or build a leaf man. Start your Halloween decorating early. Let’s not hide inside quite yet as the deep cold will be on our doorstep before you know it.
