Hello Hand Hills….The trees are tak­ing on a real green color as the warm weather con­tin­ues. The al­falfa is start­ing to poke thru. Stay away Jack Frost!

The Work In Progress Open House was at­tended by only thirty peo­ple but it was nice to be able to walk them thru the progress of the Club and an­swer their ques­tions. Chair­man of Spe­cial Ar­eas, Jor­dan Chris­tensen, spoke and ad­dressed the fact that the project is a big un­der­tak­ing and that Spe­cial Ar­eas com­mends the Hand Hills. Karen Richard­son, from UFA in Hanna was in at­ten­dance as was Fred Rein­bold, the UFA Bulk Sta­tion Man­ager in Hanna and Delia. Fred is rel­a­tively new to the area and felt that it was fit­ting that he ac­quaint him­self with the Hand Hills area. Thanks for com­ing Karen and Fred! A brief his­tory of the Build­ing process was given and it was noted that it was al­most two years to the date that the Hand Hills won the $50,000.00 from UFA. An awe­some cake, dec­o­rated in the UFA colors along with Cup­cakes of sim­i­lar color, was made by Jo­lene Scott for all to en­joy. A very spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion was made to the Club and was ded­i­cated to the 100th Stam­pede. Ju­lia, Wayne and Cor­rine Lenfesty pre­sented a wagon wheel wall clock to com­mem­o­rate the 100th Stam­pede. The clock was made by Wayne and will have a spe­cial place on the walls of the Club­house. The Hand Hills still holds a very spe­cial place in their hearts and for that we thank them from the bot­tom of our hearts. (See Pic­tures)

Good news was re­ceived that Alice Wil­son has gone home from the hospi­tal af­ter al­most a month. She will have to take it easy but home is the best place to re­cover. Glad to hear that you are on the re­bound Alice. Thoughts from the Hills are for a speedy re­cov­ery.

There is a meet­ing this Thurs­day night at 7. With the Stam­pede com­ing up FAST, meet­ing will be held ev­ery two weeks. Please plan to at­tend. Also if you can help at the 100th please phone me and I will put you on the work sched­ule.

I re­ceived a call from a very con­cerned neigh­bor in the Hills who voiced a con­cern about van­dal­ism that is tak­ing place in the Hills. We have to keep our eyes and ears to the ground and if
