And we fi­nally got some good rain, and re­fresh­ing it was! Thank the Lord... let the cel­e­bra­tions be­gin! How nice it was to drive to Drumheller on Sun­day morn­ing and see the wa­ter pool­ing in the fields... you could al­most hear them whis­per­ing ah­h­h­hhh as it was soak­ing into the dusty dry­ness. And I hope the rains made it up to north­ern Al­berta and helped quiet the flames of the north Fort McMur­ray fire.

So, we were away at a wed­ding last week­end... that is why I missed out writ­ing the news. And came back home on Tues­day morn­ing to find one neigh­bor had given me some lovely yel­low poppy flow­ers from her gar­den and an­other neigh­bor had planted them for me... wow... thank you! Life doesn’t get much bet­ter... I like my lit­tle town and my friends and my neigh­bors and now... I have beau­ti­ful flow­ers grac­ing my front deck... yay!

And speak­ing of plant­ing, it is that time of year. Please call Mary New­ton at 403-3682121 be­cause she wants to tell you more about the Rum­sey-Red Deer River Gar­den-Ju­nior Plots Cat­e­gory. You are in­vited to de­sign a 12 foot by 12 foot sec­tion to be judged and you will be asked to grow veg­gies... cu­cum­bers, car­rots, beans, corn, and one other of your choice... also flow­ers... pan­sies, sweet peas, marigolds, zin­nias, and one other of your choice. Hope­fully this news doesn’t come too late. I in­tended to in­clude the info on the gar­den plots a few weeks ago.

Well, sum­mer is quickly clos­ing in and Mor­rin School kids and staff have only one more month of classes to go be­fore a nice long stretch of hol­i­days. A big event hap­pen­ing at the school, com­ing up this Fri­day evening, May 27 (start­ing at 6:30 p.m.) is the first an­nual Arts Gala. Come on out com­mu­nity and you will get to see a drama pre­sen­ta­tion and bid on a va­ri­ety of live and silent auc­tion items and will fea­ture some stu­dent art projects. They are hop­ing for a good turnout and money raised will go to­ward the fine arts pro­gram at the school. The school also re­cently worked to­gether on var­i­ous projects in the last few weeks to gather funds to send to the peo­ple of Fort McMur­ray. Not sure what the fi­nal tally was but my daugh­ter re­ported to me it was around the $3000.00 mark... well done ev­ery­one! This en­com­pass­ing beast of a fire has been a hor­rific de­struc­tive thing for the peo­ple of Fort McMur­ray and neigh­bor­ing com­mu­ni­ties... so great to see so many help­ing in so many ways... re­mark­able prov­ince we live in. Cheers!
