What beau­ti­ful weather we had this past week­end, I am sure the farm­ers will be out in the field get­ting the seed and fer­til­izer in the ground. I hope the rain also comes. If you know some­one who can do a good rain dance, tell him/her to get busy.

There isn’t a lot of news this week since ev­ery­one is busy with spring work. In April, the ladies from Rum­sey hosted their monthly birth­day party at St. Mary’s Lodge in Trochu. They cel­e­brated Yvonne Van Caveuen­berge, Chris­tel Jakob, Mar­line Ri­ley’s birth­day’s in Ex­tended Care. In the Lodge, Leo Knievel was the only birth­day per­son. Thank you to Donna Sen­gaus for bring­ing over a de­light­ful cake and host­ing the party. Next month, Pat Hatt will be the host­ess.

Dariel McNaughton also called to let me know that the His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety is ex­cited to an­nounce that the new His­tory book is go­ing to be re­vealed on June 10. There will be a sup­per and a short cer­e­mony. Plan to pur­chase your new book at this event.

The lo­cal 4-H Beef Club is putting the last fin­ish on their calves this month as the show and sale will be the first Mon­day in June. So good luck to our lo­cal club.

As you start to plan your gar­den plots this year and have a young gar­dener in your house maybe con­sider sav­ing a small plot 12’ by 12’ of ground for them to plant their own gar­den. The Red River Gar­den club (the Rum­sey club) is in­clud­ing this in their en­tries for their an­nual show on Au­gust 31. these are the fol­low­ing re­quire­ments: They need to be 12’ x 12’ with a sign stat­ing your name and age. You can de­sign your gar­den as you like. You will be re­quired to grow five veg­eta­bles: car­rots, cu­cum­bers, beans, corn and one other of your choice. Flow­ers: pan­sies, sweet peas, marigolds, zin­nias and then one of your choice. We hope to get around to judge the plots this year. Please con­tact Mary New­ton at 403-368-2121 leave a mes­sage if she is not home. Hope you get a gig­gle; Two fac­tory work­ers were talk­ing. “I know how to get some time off from work.” said the man.

“How do you think you will do that?” said the other one. He pro­ceeded to show her...by climb­ing up to the rafters, and hang­ing up­side down.

The boss walked in, saw the worker hang­ing from the ceil­ing, and asked him what on earth he was do­ing? “I’m a light bulb” an­swered the guy.

“I think you need some time off,” said the boss. So, the man jumped down and walked out of the fac­tory. The sec­ond worker be­gan walk­ing out too. The boss asked her where did she think she was go­ing? “Home. I can’t work in the dark.” Have a great week.
