Our hearts are in­deed heavy with the news of the wild­fires that our neigh­bors to the north are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing. Sev­eral area res­i­dents jumped into the fray, gath­er­ing do­na­tions to help aid the evac­uees in Fort McMur­ray. With this tragedy comes a prov­ince wide fire ban, so please do fol­low this ban! It truly would be ter­ri­ble to con­trib­ute in any way to the de­struc­tion of our beau­ti­ful prov­ince.

Nazareth Lutheran Church is col­lect­ing do­na­tions next Sun­day, May 15 to sup­port Canadian Lutheran World Re­lief’s ef­forts in Fort McMur­ray. If we miss you in church, you can do­nate online at www.clwr.org. They have lit­tle over­head cost, so the ma­jor­ity of do­na­tions go straight to those in need.

A few Stan­dard res­i­dents have no­ticed some mis­chief and van­dal­ism hap­pen­ing around town, in­clud­ing an in­ci­dent of ar­son. If any­body sees any­thing sus­pi­cious please in­form Strath­more RCMP. You can also post it on the Stan­dard Neigh­bor­hood Watch Face­book page.
