I hope ev­ery­one had a lovely Valen­tine’s Day spent with the ones you love! Happy 90th birth­day to Ken El­der who cel­e­brated his birth­day at the Stan­dard Hall last Satur­day.

Nazareth Lutheran Church’s Youth held a 50/50 fundraiser this past win­ter. The win­ner of the 50/50 could do­nate their win­nings to their char­ity of choice. The draw was made at the Shrove Tues­day Pan­cake Sup­per and Mr. Merle Marshman of Rock­y­ford was the win­ner! Mr. Marshman very gen­er­ously do­nated his 50% to CLAY! What a bless­ing he is! The youth are well on their way to PEI in Au­gust. They will be do­ing at least one more fundraiser. Thank you to ev­ery­one who is sup­port­ing them! They are con­tin­u­ing to gather bot­tles for their Bot­tle Drive.

The NLC youth’s next fundraiser will be a mega garage sale to be held on Sports Day at the church. They are seek­ing do­na­tions of items to sell. Items can be dropped off at the manse next to the church (1002 1st street west) or please call Pas­tor Dyanna (403-6443998) if you would like them picked up. As al­ways, your do­na­tions and sup­port are ap­pre­ci­ated! We are al­most on our way to PEI!

The next dis­cus­sion is Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 27 with the film to be de­ter­mined. The lo­ca­tion is the manse next to the church. Movie starts at 7 o’clock and all are wel­come! The movies we have watched and will watch gen­er­ally are adult ori­ented.

The Stan­dard Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity En­hance­ment So­ci­ety is spear­head­ing an in­ter­est­ing fundraiser in sup­port of the Mem­ory Lane walk­ing/ cy­cling path pro­ject. An area res­i­dent has come for­ward and of­fered to rent 160 acres of farm­land for one dol­lar per acre to the group. The land could be rented for 1 year. The Mem­ory Lane group would be re­spon­si­ble for crop­ping the land for the up­com­ing year (2016). All prof­its rec­og­nized would go to­ward build­ing the mem­ory lane walk­ing path. The group would like to make this a com­mu­nity fundraiser by get­ting res­i­dents/ busi­nesses to help cover in­put of costs, seed, fer­til­izer, chem­i­cal, fuel, etc. Also the group would like to ask area farm­ers to con­sider of­fer­ing to help seed, spray, and har­vest the crop. Any­one who would like to help out can con­tact one of the so­ci­ety di­rec­tors. For those who would like to make do­na­tions to the pro­ject, they can do so by mak­ing cheques payable to the Vil­lage of Stan­dard, and writ­ing “Mem­ory Lane” in the memo line. This way, tax de­ductible re­ceipts will be is­sued. Do­na­tions can also be made to a spe­cial “Mem­ory Lane” ac­count that has been set up at CHS in Stan­dard. So­ci­ety di­rec­tors are Don Sundgaard, Jackie Jensen, Ron Cor­biell, Moe Zaleschuk, Alan Larsen and Louise We­len. Watch for the fly­ers com­ing out soon in your mail­boxes.

Friends of East Wheat­land are look­ing for farm­ers! We have the seed and we have some chem­i­cal but we need farm­ers to plant 10 acres of canola for the new school. The farmer will get a tax re­ceipt for the dif­fer­ence of their do­nated rev­enue and the in­puts re­ceived from FEW. Con­tact Ce­leste Chris­tensen (403)6442212 or Jead­ene Gre­gory (403)787-2553 for more in­for­ma­tion or to sign up.

Nazareth Lutheran Church, as well as var­i­ous area con­gre­ga­tions, in­vite you to at­tend the World Day of Prayer wor­ship ser­vice at Rose­bud Church on March 4 at 2 pm. The Rose­bud Church ladies are or­ga­niz­ing the wor­ship this year and its guar­an­teed to be a ful­fill­ing, spir­i­tual gath­er­ing.
