Battlefords residents are enjoying warmer temperatures this week after a polar vortex engulfed much of Canada recently. After a frigid span of two weeks culminating with a minus 40 wind chill on Friday, many residents got quite a shock on Sunday when the mercury rose to minus three.

Christmas came early for the Battlefords District Care Centre recently after members of the Canadian Legion of Riders (CLR) donated a cheque to enable the facility to purchase a new blood pressure machine.

Gord Slater, organizer of the event, said there was a low turnout due to the colder temperatures, but that didn't stop the donations. He hopes to have another event to bring in more warm clothing to help those in the community.
