Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

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

What a beau­ti­ful first week­end of April. We started on the yard clean­ing and prun­ing early this year. It re­ally makes it easy for the calves that were born, I hope all is go­ing well with your calv­ing as well.

Mel and Dariel McNaughton let me know that the Trochu Se­nior’s fa­cil­ity sur­vey are out and about. You can pick one up at the post of­fice or at the Li­brary. They would like them back by April 16 at the Spring Fling if pos­si­ble so they can com­pile the in­for­ma­tion and get started on the next step. Please come and get one be­cause with­out opin­ions, it will be dif­fi­cult to pro­ceed.

The Rum­sey/Row­ley 4-H Beef club will be gath­er­ing their bot­tles and bat­ter­ies this com­ing week­end so you should get a call. If you don’t hear from some­one from the club and you do have some­thing to do­nate please give Jill and Kent Holowath a call and they will ar­range for some­one to stop by.

The progress on the DropIn is get­ting go­ing. We have had a few quotes on the work on the roof and will set­tle on one soon so as to get started on that work hope­fully sooner rather than later. As you have prob­a­bly seen at the Post Of­fice, Karrie has gra­ciously agreed to take care of a do­na­tion box for the Roof Project. If you make a do­na­tion of $20 or more, I can is­sue a tax re­ceipt for you. Also, a project I would like to work on, inside the build­ing, is paint­ing the cup­boards and bath­rooms to give them a clean ap­pear­ance. So, since we have to de­vote all money to­wards the roof, I would like to put out a re­quest for any­one who might have some left­over paint, neu­tral col­ors, and primer that you would like to do­nate. In the base­ment, the ce­ment floor isn’t in the great­est shape but it is dry so if some­one has a large piece of low-pile car­pet or in­door out­door car­pet that we could lay down to cover the ce­ment would be great as well. We would like to cre­ate a games area down­stairs with the pool ta­ble, shuffle board and dart board for peo­ple who would rent the place.

That’s it for news this week. Have a great week, every­one.
