Valentine’s Day was special at the Irvine Hotel when party patrons danced to their own favorite jukebox selections.
The following Saturday the hotel held a “Pimp & Ho” party with some revelers dressed in style. Musical entertainment was provided by the ever-popular Blair-e-oke and the Go-Go Grannies. Look for their re-appearance on the third Saturday of every month.

Irvine Minor Hockey’s Initiation team hosted a tournament last month involving six junior teams: the Irvine Bulldogs, Shaunavon Badgers, Medicine Hat Senators, Lethbridge Dynamites and Okotoks Sharks. A tournament at this age level yields no top winners but does introduce beginners’ teams to tournament play as well as provide a day of outstanding fun.
Bingo players indulged in an evening of their sport at New Horizons Hall on February 21. Look for more of this on each third Saturday except during summer and December.
