Hand Hills Grapevine

The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE - Mar­i­lyn Vre­de­goor 403-665-2473

Hello Hand Hills…seed­ing is in full swing and it is be­gin­ning to look like we have es­caped winter. The Saska­toon trees are in bloom as are some of the ap­ple trees. Stay away Jack Frost. We are still look­ing pretty good mois­ture wise but a good rain would sure spruce things up. Our thoughts go out to the Fort McMur­ray fire vic­tims. Our com­plaints should all be muted when we see what oth­ers are going thru. Help where you can!

The Hand Hills Com­mu­nity is send­ing Deep­est Con­do­lences to the Raymond Siep­pert Fam­ily on the sud­den pass­ing of Judy Siep­pert. Judy was a friendly, happy go lucky per­son who loved to visit. Judy was a vol­un­teer in the Com­mu­nity that could al­ways be de­pended on to help with any of the cater­ing jobs that the Club had going. Short no­tice didn’t bother her as she was al­ways ready to help. R.I.P. Judy. You will be missed.

There is a Club Meet­ing this Thurs­day at 7. Come on down and help put the fin­ish­ing touches on the 100th Stam­pede. Help is al­ways needed. Phone if you can vol­un­teer for a shift or two at the 100th!

The Sou­venir Com­mit­tee is try­ing some­thing new this year and you have un­til this Fri­day, the 13th to give it a try. A cat­a­logue has been put out that has all the sou­venirs that are avail­able for you to order be­fore the Stam­pede. Place your order be­fore Fri­day and your items will be ready for pick up at the Stam­pede. All or­ders must be paid in full. The same sou­venirs will be avail­able for sale at the 100th but in lim­ited quan­ti­ties so it is ad­vised to order early. Go on Face Book, the Web­site (www. hand­hills.a.b.ca) or phone Tally Quaschnick to get your order in. There are 100th Belt buck­les, hood­ies, t-shirts, go cups, mugs, hats, crib boards, cut­ting boards just to men­tion a few.

With all of the Dance Recital over I am now won­der­ing what the next sched­uled event is for the fam­i­lies in the Hills. Is it base­ball, soc­cer, 4-H or all of the above? I saw Rod Moench sport­ing a t-shirt that showed how proud of a father he is. The shirt said… Dance Dad. Looked good on you Rod! From what I know of Jil­lian you have ev­ery rea­son to be proud!

She is going to be 90 years young. I am talk­ing about our old neigh­bor and friend, Edna Pre­ston. The Hand Hills is wish­ing you the best day ever on May 13 and many more to come.

I also heard thru the Grapevine that our neigh­bor to the north is turn­ing an­other year older as well. Hughie McDon­ald will be 93! (If my mem­ory serves me right). Happy Birth­day Hughie and many more. Till next week…I hope that ev­ery­one had a great Mother’s Day. Be­ing a Mother is the hard­est job that you will ever love!
