Parade planned for Hand Hills Stampede Centennial
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.
