Wel­come, wel­come to all this rain, it has been most wel­come in all ar­eas since we have been so dry this spring. Ev­ery­thing is look­ing a lot greener.

I apol­o­gize for not sub­mit­ting a col­umn last week but it has been a very busy week in our house with our last son, Rus­sel’s, grad­u­a­tion. I know that there are oth­ers in our com­mu­nity also grad­u­at­ing this year. I would like to ex­tend con­grat­u­la­tions to Rea­gan Bur­rows, Danielle and Trevor’s son, who grad­u­ated from Drumheller, Ri­ley Helmer (Linda Helmers grand­son) Kevin and Kim’s son who grad­u­ated from Trochu. Quin­ton Kop­jar grad­u­ated from Oko­toks where he was at­tend­ing a base­ball academy. Kas­sidy Kowalchuk, John and Paula’s daugh­ter grad­u­ated from Trochu. From Mor­rin, we had 5 lo­cal kids grad­u­ate: Amy Adams, Erica Nel­son, Katie Prim­rose, Car­son Hodge and Mitchell Hodge. There were also two other grads from Mor­rin, Tyler Hayes and Derek Cul­lum from the Mor­rin and Mun­son ar­eas. Good luck in all your fu­ture en­deav­ors.

The 4-H Beef show is fast ap­proach­ing and our Rum­sey club is in high gear get­ting the fi­nal pol­ish on their calves and set­ting up the Delia Arena for the show. It will be held on Mon­day, June 6 start­ing at 9 am with the Heifer por­tion of the show. The steers will fol­low at 12:30, ban­quet at 5:00 and the sale will start at 7:00 p.m. Ev­ery­one is in­vited to come and watch some good kids at work. There are 11 mem­bers in the Rum­sey club this year: Brett and Amanda Holowath, Van­nessa, Meah and Ca­dynce Rich­mond, Noel Kiemele, Cor­byn and Blake Stone­man, Zoe Avra­menko, Ry­ley and Brady Map­pin. Good luck to all of you.

The Rum­sey mi­nor base­ball is in mid-swing of their sea­son. I know that the mid­get group will be play­ing tonight in Rum­sey up at the di­a­monds start­ing at 6:30 so if you want to come out and cheer, there is noth­ing bet- ter than a good game on a warm evening in the spring­time.

The Rum­sey His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety is get­ting ex­cited about their grand de­but of the new His­tory book. They will be cel­e­brat­ing by hav­ing a sup­per on June 10 start­ing at 5 pm with a small cer­e­mony to fol­low and, of course, this will be your first op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase the new book so don’t miss out. I hope you get a chuckle: It was grad­u­a­tion day and Mom was try­ing to take a pic­ture of their son in a cap and gown, posed with his fa­ther.

“Let’s try to make this look nat­u­ral “she said.” Ju­nior, put your arm around your dad’s shoul­der.”

The fa­ther an­swered, “If you want it to look nat­u­ral, why not have him put his hand in my wal­let?”

And: A lit­tle girl took her re­port card home and showed it to mom. The mother was very dis­ap­pointed by all the very low grades. “Well look on the bright side” said the child, “you know for sure I don’t cheat.”

Have a great week.
