What an amaz­ing morn­ing and af­ter­noon at Nazareth last Sun­day. We had a ton of kids take part in the bike-a-thon and they raised enough in pledges to send 22 kids to Camp Kuri­akos this year! We had lots of brothers, sis­ters, friends and even grand­pas take part even though they didn’t go to camp! Ev­ery­one had a blast at the pic­nic and do­ing the Geo-Cache at the end. Thank you to ev­ery­one who do­nated money and sup­ported the kids by spon­sor­ing them through pledges. The en­tire com­mu­nity at Nazareth and in Stan­dard re­ally pulled together to make camp hap­pen for de­serv­ing kids in our town. So awe­some! Rosina Chris­tensen won a prize for rais­ing the most pledges! Rosina also won for the most laps in her age group. Daniel Jensen won for his age group and Kash Koole won for his! Way to go guys!

Dyanna Couture has a ton of baby con­vict ci­ch­lids that need homes! Don’t have an aquar­ium? She can help you out there too! Con­vict Ci­ch­lids can be ag­gres­sive, so they need to be with other ci­ch­lids or alone. They are amaz­ing par­ents. The dad babysits and will ac­tu­ally swish the ba­bies around in his mouth to bathe them and then spit them out. Call 644-3998 if you would like some!

The NLC youth’s next fundraiser will be a mega garage sale to be held on Sports Day at the church. They are seek­ing do­na­tions of items to sell. Items can be dropped off at the manse next to the church (1002 1st Street West) or please call Pas­tor Dyanna (403-644-3998) if you would like them picked up. As al­ways, your do­na­tions and sup­port are ap­pre­ci­ated! We are al­most on our way to PEI!

As al­ways, sub­mis­sions can be made to standard­newz@gmail. com or to Pas­tor Dyanna Couture at 403-644-3998. Please try to have your sub­mis­sions in by early evening on Sun­day! power fail­ure. Gave the guys a good rest but hard to get back in the right frame of mind.

A re­minder that Greg Cole’s farm auc­tion is this Thurs­day with lots of things on the sale bill. It will likely be a good crowd.

Last Satur­day, Ross Eremko took me to the Tul­lo­copf farm auc­tion south of Three Hills and when we ar­rived at 10:00 a.m., my ticket num­ber was 239 if I wanted to buy any­thing. Later, I saw folks with num­bers into the 400’s and out of all those peo­ple I knew 5. Some came a great dis­tance just in the hope that they would get what they wanted for a good price. Some things went for quite ridicu­lous prices but that’s par for the course I guess.

A fur­ther note to the Orkney Sports Day ... sup­per will be about 5:30 p.m. and the ladies are re­minded to please bring a salad and a pie.

A fur­ther re­minder that Fa­ther’s Day is this Sun­day, June 19 so, treat him to break­fast in bed or maybe some­thing dif­fer­ent that is more to his lik­ing.

Have a good week, do some­thing nice for some­one. It doesn’t have to be big or cost money, just smile and say hello.
