The Spring Fling was a big hit once again this year. The silent Auc­tion ta­bles were full with great things to bid on and the live auc­tion of de­li­cious pies and desserts went re­ally well rais­ing an amaz­ing $12000.00! The sup­per was de­li­cious thanks to the Ag So­ci­ety mem­bers who cooked up a great steak for ev­ery­one with baked potato and all the fix­ings and sal­ads. Well done, ev­ery­one, and a big thank you to all the com­mu­nity mem­bers who sup­ported the Ag So­ci­ety by buy­ing and bid­ding on the items.

The Ag So­ci­ety will go quiet for a while now as the mem­bers see to their own work of seed­ing and mov­ing cat­tle out to pas­ture. The next event on their sched­ule will be Sports days in July.

This com­ing Satur­day the Helmer clan will be in at the hall to cel­e­brate Linda’s 70th birth­day. The fes­tiv­i­ties will start at 2:00 p.m. and they re­quest only your at­ten­dance not any presents.

The Drop-In should be un­der con­struc­tion in the next cou­ple weeks. The roof will be re­paired and the build­ing will be se­cure and dry once again for many years to come. I would like to send out a big thank you to all the or­ga­ni­za­tions that gave us a do­na­tion to make this hap­pen. We hope that the com­mu­nity will use this build­ing for their smaller func­tions in the fu­ture. It is a nice com­fort­able size for a crowd of 25 to 30 peo­ple with fun things for fam­i­lies to do such as play­ing pool, shuf­fle board, darts, ping pong, cards and with a small kitchen and hand­i­cap ac­cess, it makes it ideal. Keep us in mind for your next small event. Rent is very rea­son­able.

The Li­brary is host­ing its 4th craft night on April 20 & 21 at 7:00 p.m. We have in­vited in a guest to show us how to re­store and paint wood fur­ni­ture. Laya Mont­gomery has cre­ated some ex­cel­lent pieces and we would love to fig­ure out how she does this so if 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.

Dariel Mc­Naughton called this morn­ing to let me know that the His­tory books are well on their way to com­ple­tion so the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety has de­cided to host a launch­ing party on June 10 at the Hall. There will be sup­per from 5 to 7 with a small cer­e­mony to fol­low and all the books will be avail­able on that day. Ev­ery­one is en­cour­aged to get their book at this event. There will be an ad­di­tional cost to mail a book out to some­one so it would be great to come in and get a book early so if you hap­pen to be trav­el­ling dur­ing the sum­mer, you might be able to get the book to your rel­a­tive with­out bear­ing the cost of mail­ing it.

This is some­thing for those kids that are get­ting rest­less in school this spring:

Do you know what the dif­fer­ence is be­tween school and life? In school, you’re taught a les­son and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test then taught a les­son. Some­thing to think about.

Have a great week.
