On Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 24, the Stan­dard School held their First An­nual Spell­ing Bee Fundraiser. Your Li­brary Man­ager, Adreena placed first, with Manny’s Mom Sam tak­ing se­cond & Drew Gre­gory with third. What a fun event, with the pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards bleach­ers for the Drama Depart­ment at Wheat­land Cross­ing. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the par­tic­i­pants! A spe­cial ef­fort was made by Mayor Alan Larsen whose first word was “ptero­dactyl”. He pulled that one off when ev­ery­one else had words like cat and dog. Some­thing fishy about that first word…

Th­ese clin­ics are open to the 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.
