Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

It is with sad­ness that I have to re­port the pass­ing of two of our com­mu­nity mem­bers this past week. John Grif­fith, a long-time mem­ber of our com­mu­nity, passed away on May 27 and his fu­neral was held at the Rum­sey Hall on May 31. He will be missed by his fam­ily plus the many peo­ple who at­tended his fu­neral to tell sto­ries of his great ad­ven­tures and a very full and rich life.

Tom An­der­son passed away Fri­day, June 3 in the Drumheller hos­pi­tal af­ter a long-fought bat­tle against can­cer. He strove to en­joy life long af­ter the doc­tors had ex­pected. He saw two grand­chil­dren born, cel­e­brated the en­gage­ment of his son and many more mile­stones af­ter that ini­tial di­ag­no­sis. His wife, Karen, daugh­ters Marci, Chelsey and son Justin, son-in-law Jarod and fu­ture daugh­ter-in-law Ken­nady along with ex­tended fam- ily and many, many neigh­bours and com­mu­nity mem­bers will miss him dearly. “Cel­e­bra­tion of Life” will be held in Rum­sey at the Hall on Thurs­day, June 9 at 2:00 p.m. There will be a pri­vate burial ser­vice at the Rum­sey ceme­tery at 11:00. This will be for fam­ily only.

This Fri­day the Rum­sey His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety will be host­ing a launch of the third Rum­sey His­tory book. There will be beef on a bun served from 5 to 7 af­ter which there will be a few speak­ers who will cel­e­brate this great ac­com­plish­ment and fel­low­ship to fol­low. This will be your first chance to pur­chase the new book so you don’t want to miss out.

The Drumheller Dis­trict 4-H ex­change group is host­ing a fundraiser this com­ing Father’s Day. They will be putting on a breakfast at the Rum­sey Hall from 9 to noon for ev­ery­one who is stumped as to what to get their dad for Father’s day. This is a guar­an­teed way to win some brownie points with Dad (and Mom) so take ev­ery­one out for a great morn­ing at the Rum­sey Agri-plex.

The Rum­sey Con­nec­tion Golf tour­na­ment is fast ap­proach­ing as well. It will be held on Thurs­day, June 23 and will in­clude 9 holes of golf and a steak sup­per with prizes. Call Elaine Weisse at 403-368-2225 or Dariel Mc­naughton at 403-3682120 to sign up.

Last week I listed the Grad­u­ates of this year and hoped that I got them all but un­for­tu­nately, I missed one. I would like to con­grat­u­late Shayla Daniels who com­pleted her ed­u­ca­tion in Trochu. Her mom, Denise (New­ton) and Mike Daniels couldn’t be prouder. Good luck in all your fu­ture plans.

The Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety would like to let all the Rum­sey res­i­dent grad­u­ates know if they are con­sid­er­ing post-sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion, plan to get to work on the ap­pli­ca­tion for the Rum­sey Ag So­ci­ety schol­ar­ship. Dead­lines for ap­pli­ca­tions are Au­gust 20 and in­for­ma­tion is avail­able from Angie Walker.

Try say­ing these for fun: I thought a thought. But the thought I thought wasn’t the thought I thought I thought. If the thought I thought I thought had been the thought I thought, I wouldn’t have thought so much. “Theophilus This­tle, a suc­cess­ful young this­tle sifter, in sift­ing a sieve of un­sifted this­tles, thrust three thou­sand this­tles through the thick of his thumb. Now see if thou, in sift­ing a sieve of un­sifted this­tles, thrust not three thou­sand this­tles through the thick of thy thumb!”

Have a great week.
