The Hand Hills Lake Stam­pede is get­ting ready to cel­e­brate its cen­ten­nial and part of the party is a pa­rade.

The Hand Hills Lake Stam­pede 100th an­niver­sary per­for­mance is com­ing up June 3-5 and is look­ing like it will be the cel­e­bra­tion of the cen­tury.

One of the or­ga­niz­ers, Merle Mor­ton, says they typ­i­cally have a pa­rade at mile­stone events, and the cen­ten­nial is their big­gest mile­stone yet.

“The Miller fam­ily will be lead­ing the Pa­rade,” ex­plains Mor­ton. “Jack Miller, their grand dad, started the first rodeo.”

The pa­rade is on the Satur- day morn­ing, June 4 at 10 a.m. Reg­is­tra­tion is 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

“We would like peo­ple to call and let us know they are com­ing, and then we will do the reg­is­tra­tions as they get there,” said Mor­ton.

The Stam­pede wel­comes en­tries from farms, fam­i­lies, com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions, and busi­nesses to par­tic­i­pate.

Those wish­ing to en­ter can call Merle Mor­ton at 403-6652369.

you are cu­ri­ous as well, come and join us on Wed­nes­day and Thurs­day evening, April 20 and 21 for a cou­ple hours with a small piece of fur­ni­ture that you would like to ex­per­i­ment on. This will be held at the Drop-In to give us enough space to work.

The grad class is putting on a Mor­rin School Alumni Vol­ley­ball Tour­na­ment on Satur­day April 30. If you are in­ter­ested in putting a team in, please con­tact Amy Adams at 403-436-0096 or Katie Prim­rose at 403-820-1652. You are re­quired at least 3 peo­ple who are Mor­rin School alumni on the team, and you have to have 2 girls on the court at all times. Con­ces­sion will be open, and a draw will be up as soon as we have enough teams!

One last thing, I have been ap­proached by some peo­ple in­ter­ested in hav­ing a com­mu­nity garage sale again this year. I know it has been a few years now so maybe it is time to have one if we can get enough peo­ple in­ter­ested. I was think­ing that midMay would be a good time. We found that the last time we had one we had lots of peo­ple come on a Fri­day night but not that many on Satur­day when the big­ger cen­ters had lots go­ing on. It might be a good idea to open ours on a Thurs­day night and Fri­day night then not on Satur­day. If you are in­ter­ested con­tact me at the li­brary and I’ll put you down.

And if you are in the mood for spring clean­ing, keep this in mind: Clean­ing with kids in the house is like brush­ing your teeth while eat­ing Oreo Cook­ies.

Have a great week.
