Or­ga­niz­ers of the Ride for Bran­don Hall pre­sented the fam­ily with a cheque for $20,000 on Wed­nes­day evening. The poker run was held Saturday to raise funds for Bran­don Hall, a Drumheller man who un­der­went surgery to re­move a tu­mor in In­di­ana this week. There are still more funds com­ing in for the fam­ily. Pic­tured from left is or­ga­niz­ers Jamie Wor­man, Ash­ley Fredrick­son, Top Rocker co-owner Linda Buchamer, and father Michael Hall. (Cran­ton) Alyea this past week. Cathy was born and raised in this com­mu­nity, re­ceiv­ing her ed­u­ca­tion at the Craigmyle School and later at the Delia School. Cathy and her hus­band, Art, re­turned to this com­mu­nity some num­ber of years ago, when they took up res­i­dence on the Cran­ton fam­ily farm. Sin­cere con­do­lences go out to Art and to Cathy’s two sons, Joe and Rob, as well as the ex­tended Cran­ton and Alyea fam­i­lies.

Con­do­lences also go out to Brent and Debi Olm­stead and fam­ily on the pass­ing of Debi’s brother Allen Lam­son, af­ter a lengthy ill­ness. It is so hard to lose a fam­ily mem­ber this young; know that your com­mu­nity is think­ing of you dur­ing this dif­fi­cult time.

Now onto some hap­pier news: Mary Heathers-Up- shaw was thrilled to at­tend her grand­daugh­ter’s first com­mu­nion on Sun­day, May 1. Grand­daugh­ter Sepreina Play­ford, was one of a group of 24 who re­ceived their first com­mu­nion at the Olds Catholic Church. It was a mean­ing­ful event for Grandma Mary.

Birth­day greet­ings go out to Jim Nor­lie, Bradley Bram­field and Scott Stern, all shar­ing May 14; Clay­ton Faech­ner on May 16; Brett Rees on May 17; Lau­reen Strel­lioff on May 18 and Ge­orge Maetche on May 19. Have a great day!
