Last Monday when I wrote the news the peo­ple of Fort Mac had no idea what was ahead of them this week and now the whole world is sad­dened and in shock. We got a mes­sage from some­one that Ron and Lynn met in Ukraine in 2011 to say they are hop­ing we are not in dan­ger and are pray­ing for us. Ev­ery­one seems to know some­one who is in­volved and what an on­go­ing story of courage and hu­man kind­ness.

Our hearts go out to ev­ery­one af­fected.

On April 23 nine mem­bers of the Ver­dant Val­ley and Dor­cas Women’s In­sti­tute at­tended the an­nual Knee­hill Con­stituency Con­fer­ence at the Trochu Bap­tist Church Fel­low­ship hall in Trochu. The con­fer­ence was chaired by Brenda Willsie, Con­stituency Con­vener. High­lights were door prizes do­nated by lo­cal busi­nesses, a greet­ing card craft, raf­fles, com- pe­ti­tions and a de­li­cious lunch. The Ver­dant Val­ley Ag So­ci­ety con­tri­bu­tion of an Al­berta food prod­ucts bas­ket was won by Joyce Sil­ber­nagel of the Ho­gadone Branch. Guest speaker was Co­rina Cole from the Of­fice of the Pub­lic Guardian. She spoke about the le­gal doc­u­ments that ev­ery adult should have in case you be­come un­able to look af­ter your per­sonal af­fairs such as fi­nan­cial, per­sonal and other needs. The Ver­dant Val­ley Branch did well in the com­pe­ti­tion in Hand­i­craft, Bak­ing, Photography, Art Work and Plants. Percy Poland was first and Doris Wade was sec­ond in the plant com­pe­ti­tion. Best over­all plant was Percy Poland’s for which she was awarded the Lois McArther Me­mo­rial Tro­phy. Pat McDougald placed first in Bak­ing and Doris Wade was third for over­all points for her en­tries. There were 240 en­tries in the com­pe­ti­tion.

Happy birth­day this week to Brad Mepham, Janelle (Leon­hardt) Hatt and Roberta (Ewing) Hunt on May 12, Tyler James and Dry­den Grieve on May 13, Kim (Thomas) Larsen on May 14 and CJ Ire­land on May 15.
