Now that Mother’s day has passed, you can plan for Fa­ther’s Day in Dalum. The Dalum Hall As­so­ci­a­tion is spon­sor­ing a pic­nic in the park on June 21, more de­tails will be pro­vided later, in­clud­ing those for a gen­eral com­mu­nity clean up be­fore­hand.

A few Dalum Coun­try Club ladies en­joyed a dif­fer­ent kind of “field trip” on April 14 as they loaded the Boe­ing sub­ur­ban and they were like 7-27 year olds. Their flight’s first land­ing was at the Saskatoon farm in Oko­toks with the fi­nal des­ti­na­tion sup­per at the Strathmore Sta­tion. Nu­mer­ous stops helped keep the tur­bu­lence un­der con­trol and in­cluded High River, Blackie, and Cars­land.

Harv and Della were pleased that Kyle and Erin and Wy­att came farm­ing for the May long week­end, to help the Poulsens com­plete this year’s plant­ing.

Pas­tor Dan & Paula Hen­drick­son spent the long week­end at the coast to honor his par­ents on their 50th Wed­ding An­niver­sary and to spend time with fam­ily.

There’s a spe­cial birth­day com­ing up for Benth Poulsen. He will cel­e­brate his 80th year on May 24 with a Gar­den Party in their back­yard from 2:00 – 5:00; com­plete with all who came to con­grat­u­late him.

The next week­end, May 29 and 30 is busy too, with DCHS Grad­u­a­tion for Jenny Pallesen, Ellen Clark, Bran­den Sch­nei­der, Cait­lyn Ryan, Josh Gustafson and their fam­i­lies. Any­one can watch their Grand March on Fri­day night at the arena at 7:00. Con­vo­ca­tion fol­lows at noon Satur­day at the school gym.

The Friend­ship Club is host­ing an­other Spring Tea at the hall on Thurs­day, June 4 at 2:00 pm and all are wel­come to at­tend.

We have cruise news. Bob & Judy Nel­son re­ported on their 19 day ex­cur­sion with an­other cou­ple, which in­cluded the Panama Canal, Aruba and Latin Amer­i­can coun­tries. Skip­ping Mex­ico didn’t help avoid sickness, as ½ the ship ended up in quar­an­tine due to a flu they blamed on Columbia. Staff wore face masks and served all food, even salt and pep­per. In LA they were al­lowed to visit only one des­ti­na­tion – cus­toms. Their last 4 days aboard was marked by 12 foot waves that forced all open decks and bal­conies off lim­its and the drain­ing of the swim­ming pools. Vic­to­ria pro­vided a pleas­ant tour be­fore their dis­em­bark­ment in Van­cou­ver.

The Nel­sons en­joyed the pre­cruise week in the Florida Keys with Bob’s sis­ter who lives there. They rented a con­vert­ible and took in the Kennedy Space Cen­ter, Or­lando, and more.

Word has been re­ceived of the pass­ing May 8, 2009 of Alek Bill, hus­band of Ruth Ja­cob­son who grew up in Dalum. Ruth & Alek met in Prince Ru­pert B.C. when she worked as an RN & Alek was with the RCMP. They have en­joyed many years of re­tire­ment in Van­cou­ver. Sym­pa­thy of many old friends in Dalum is ex­tended to Ruth and their fam­ily; Alek- san­der who teaches in Korea, Cas­san­dra a pro­fes­sor at UBC, and Candace and her daugh­ter Vanessa. Alek will also be fondly re­mem­bered by the fam­i­lies of the late Harry Ja­cob­sen, Grace Lenz of Lon­don, On­tario and Edith Woods of Cal­gary. You can di­rect cor­re­spon­dence to Ruth Bill at 1835 Mor­ton Ave. #1601, Van­cou­ver BC V6G 1V3 or call her at 1-604-687-8550.
