Rain, rain, beau­ti­ful rain... looks like it might be an all day soft, gen­tle soak­ing as I look out and sit by the fire­place and write the news on this last Mon­day morn­ing in May. It was a nice, warm, sunny Sun­day... good thing Bob got the lawn mower out and cut the grass. When the sun comes back out, our part of the world is go­ing to be look­ing lovely and lush and vel­vety green.

So, just wish to start things off to­day and send a shout out to all those who came to the Art Gala at the Mor­rin School this past Fri­day evening. It was very well at­tended and the gym­na­sium was a buzz of ex­cite­ment with the auc­tion and drama and snacks, and all the kids and staff and helpers wish to say thankyou for the com­mu­nity sup­port.

Also the cookie dough ar­rived last week and the Grade 5 and 6 kids were pretty pumped when the truck showed up and the driver un­loaded a huge flat of stacked boxes. It was fun to watch them rush out­side, sort it all out and find the boxes with their names. I thought Charly did well to sell 12 or­ders, I think Alyssa Wilkins had 41 in to­tal... quite a re­mark­able ef­fort on be­half of Mr. Sal­tys and his stu­dents. I have to say, it was re­ally well or­ga­nized and ev­ery­thing came nicely packed and la­beled. Again, thanks to ev­ery­one who bought a tub or more in sup­port of the grade 5/6 class trip to the leg­is­la­ture that is hap­pen­ing Wed­nes­day June 1.

And last but not least... I wish to say con­grat­u­la­tions and job well done to my wonderful hus­band, Dr. Robert E. Gra­ham (R.E.G. as long-time re­cep­tion­ist Tink refers to him) as he has of­fi­cially re­tired from fam­ily medicine af­ter 32 years of self­less ser­vice to the Drumheller com­mu­nity... so proud of you dear Bob and love you to pieces! He will stay on to do Anes­thet­ics and ER Call so you may still see him around the hospi­tal. And with that an­nounce­ment, it looks like there will be a big-all-are-wel­come party on the evening of June 16 at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity to cel­e­brate the estab­lished ca­reers of some of the long­est serv­ing doc­tors in the Drumheller Val­ley... Dr. Racz, Dr. Gra­ham, Dr. Jor­dan and Dr. Nef­f­gan. Thank you all so very much for com­ing and stay­ing. Thank you for do­ing the very dif­fi­cult, de­mand­ing job, day-in and day-out... in­ter­view­ing, ex­am­in­ing, di­ag­nos­ing, treat­ing, en­cour­ag­ing, op­er­at­ing on, be­friend­ing, smil­ing with, cry­ing with, pray­ing with and help­ing so many peo­ple for so many years with your fine minds, hearts, hands, words, med­i­cal skills and train­ing. God bless you. Je­sus de­lights in you. We salute you. Now... let’s have fun! Cheers!
