Just when Delia gar­den­ers were get­ting ex­cited about Spring, we re­ceived a late Spring snow shower this morn­ing. Well, we need the mois­ture and there is still plenty of time for seed­ing.

The cel­e­bra­tion of the Queen’s 90th birth­day was a great suc­cess in Delia last Thurs­day. Nearly seventy ladies (and a few gen­tle­men) were at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre to par­tic­i­pate in the Cel­e­bra­tion. I have never seen the Drop In Cen­tre look so lovely, ku­dos to the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety for their ex­per­tise in dec­o­rat­ing the hall, plus the ta­bles beau­ti­fully set with Royal Al­bert china and fine sil­ver. Nearly seventy ladies at­tended, dressed for the oc­ca­sion, all wear­ing dec­o­rated hats. A set­ting de­signed for roy­alty in­deed!

The win­ner of the best hat con­test was Judy Be­nuniak from Drumheller, run­ners up were Pat John­son from, Hanna and Robby Walker from Drumheller. All the ladies have to be con­grat­u­lated on their cre­ativ­ity in dec­o­rat­ing hats, some of the hats were amaz­ing!

The Delia His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety would like to thank some very spe­cial peo­ple who helped make the Queen’s tea such a great day which was en­joyed by all. Mar­i­lyn Downey for cre­at­ing the in­vi­ta­tions and posters, Eleanor Fair, Pat Hoover, Carol Sis­ley and Bev Hall for pre­par­ing the food and pre­par­ing the Drop In for the party. Dal­las Raessler for her ex­cel­lent rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the Queen, she looked beau­ti­ful, and for mak­ing her own gor­geous cake! (loved that royal wave, Dal­las!) To Donna Is­sac for en­ter­tain­ing our guests play­ing some old time tunes on the pi­ano. Jill Clay­holt for tak­ing pho­tos of all the lovely ladies in their hats, and to Dolores Pear­son and Jill Clay­holt for wash­ing and dry­ing all the fine china. To all the oth­ers who helped dur­ing the day and to John Rogers for be­ing a good sport and help­ing pour the tea and cof­fee. Thank you to all the ladies who at­tended and wore such lovely hats.
