Halloween festivities are soon to be wrapping up. The month of November will be coming in hot with the thought with Christmas on everyone's mind.

The following day will be the Cochrane Alliance Church's Long Table event from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The Long Table is a place for everyone to belong. Whether you are an introvert, an extrovert or somewhere in-between, this is your opportunity to meet new friends, deepen existing relationships, and enjoy a great meal.
On Nov. 6, 7 and 8 Cochrane High School Performing Arts will present Clem Martini's "The Mob".
It's springtime - hundreds of Crows set out on their yearly migration and converge at the Gathering Tree. This sacred gathering is an opportunity for the six crow Clans of the Family Kinaar to assemble, to make decisions and to celebrate being together. When young blood is lost, sacred laws are tested as an illegal Mob seeks revenge, and a division threatens the unity of the flock. The family's situation is made yet more precarious when a severe blizzard hits and the crows are faced with the dilemma of where to find shelter. Breaking age-old decrees and working together may offer their only chance of survival. Tickets for the show are $15 per ticket.
There are a pair of events coming up on Nov. 9. First, the Paranormal Investigation at the Rockyview Hotel.
