The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

The Ladies bon­spiel is sched­uled to start to­day so the con­ces­sion will be open and ready to serve you a great meal while you sit and en­joy some good curl­ing out on the ice. Thurs­day night will be Rum­sey’s in­fa­mous Oys­ter night when you can en­joy oys­ters and/or steak with baked potato, salad and your choice of de­li­cious home­made desserts. Next week, the Mixed Dou­bles will be go­ing from Thurs­day to Satur­day so if that in­ter­ests you then sign up with Brooks and Jackie Watts. Win­ter flies by when you join in with the com­mu­nity fun.

Diane McBride phoned me to share the won­der­ful news of the ar­rival of their first grand­baby. Holly and Sam had a beau­ti­ful baby girl on Jan­uary 29. She weighed just over 6 pounds, sorry I didn’t write done the ex­act weight, and was graced with the name of Kennedy Anne. She will be en­joyed by her two won­der­ful sets of grand­par­ents, Phil and Diane McBride from Rum­sey and War­ren and Emily Clark of Boswell, B.C. Holly and Sam and their lit­tle one presently make their home in Cal­gary. Con­grat­u­la­tions, you two. Dave and Donna Sen­gaus are very happy to an­nounce that they have be­come grand­par­ents to a beau­ti­ful baby girl named Is­abelle Mary. She was born on Wed­nes­day, Feb 3 to Devon and Na­dine. She was 7 lbs, 6 ounces with lots of black hair. Na­dine’s par­ents Dale Becker and Tina Becker join in on this con­grat­u­la­tions.

B.J. Avra­menko stopped by the li­brary with the cel­e­bra­tory news of their daugh­ter Tataina. She has won 2 gold medals at Ham­mer­feast which is a com­pe­ti­tion in Taek­wondo; a prac­tice of Korean Mar­tial Arts. The first medal was won for her spar­ring and the se­cond for forms. Her divi­sion of com­pe­ti­tion is Red Stripe (or belt). She has 3 more steps to com­plete be­fore start­ing her fi­nal lev­els to­wards Black Belt. Con­grat­u­la­tions, Ta­tiana, for your ded­i­ca­tion of a sport you ob­vi­ously love.

Mar­i­lyn Tren­tham sent along news that the Mor­rin Lions are once again hold­ing a Valen­tines Pan­cake Break­fast on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 14 from 9:00 am un­til noon. En­trance is by do­na­tion and all the do­na­tions will be given to the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion. We will of­fer re­ceipts for those wish­ing one. We will have flow­ers for the ladies and valen­tines for the kids to make. Bring out the whole fam­ily for this fun event.

The news at the DropIn re­mains at a stand­still as the de­ci­sion was made at the Clo­sure meet­ing to ask a build­ing in­spec­tor to come in and as­sess the health of the build­ing as it stands now. If there is enough good news then the par­ties in­ter­ested will meet again to de­cide if it would be worth fix­ing the roof and patch­ing up the wa­ter dam­age in­side. Now that word has spread about the im­pend­ing clo­sure of the Drop-in, more peo­ple have come for­ward to ex­press in­ter­est in it stay­ing open so hope­fully with com­mu­nity sup­port we can look at keep­ing it open af­ter word from the in­spec­tor. We will wait and see.

I’ll close with a cou­ple thoughts:

“All my life I thought air was free un­til I bought a bag of chips.” And “The hard­est job ever must be work­ing in a bub­ble wrap fac­tory; imag­ine the self­con­trol needed…”

Have a great week.
