Ron and Les­lie and I spent 6 days in Cam­rose and Ed­mon­ton last week. On Thurs­day, March 10 we en­joyed a trip down mem­ory lane when we at­tended a 50th an­niver­sary con­cert of the Ir­ish Rovers at the Bai­ley Theatre in Cam­rose. Four of the eight per­form­ers were from the orig­i­nal Ir­ish Rovers group and even though they are in their seven­ties they still have tons of en­ergy and spirit. We heard some of the old favourites and some new mu­sic. They are on their fi­nal World Tour. Fri­day we went to Ed­mon­ton where we stayed at a ho­tel and had vis­its from all eight grand­chil­dren and their part­ners and also one of the great grand­chil­dren. Karen took Ron and Les­lie to an Ed­mon­ton Oil Kings and Cal­gary Hit­men hockey game at Rex­all Place. It is a great chance to visit with the fam­ily who are all in Ed­mon­ton and Cam­rose now.

The Ver­dant Val­ley and Dor­cas Women’s In­sti­tute met at the home of Holly Guter­son on Wed­nes­day, March 9. Guest speaker was Sharla Boyko from Grow­ing Op­por­tu­ni­ties. This or­ga­ni­za­tion as­sists moth­ers and fam­i­lies in mak­ing choices so that mother and baby will be healthy be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter de­liv­ery. The In­sti­tute has sup­ported this pro­gram for sev­eral years do­nat­ing baby items for New Born Ba­bies at the Drumheller Hos­pi­tal. This pro­gram is fi­nan­cially sup­ported by Canada Pre­na­tal Nutri­tion Pro­gram and the Pub­lic Health Agency of Canada, Pri­mary Care Net­work. Main busi­ness of the meet­ing was plan­ning of the up­com­ing Con­stituency Con­fer­ence in Trochu on April 23. Roll call was a new born baby item and baby pic­tures of the mem­bers, a very en­light­en­ing ex­pe­ri­ence since they have changed a lot! Next meet­ing will be at the home of Percy Poland on April 13 with roll call Spring Clean­ing for Vic­tim Ser­vices.

Don’t for­get to reg­is­ter for the Jim Hole Horticulture Work­shop be­ing held at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter on April 16. The dead­line for reg­is­tra­tion is April 8 so we know how many we are hav­ing for lunch that day. Call Pat at 403-321-0210 or Toni at 403-321-0061 for more in­for­ma­tion or to reg­is­ter.
