Hope everyone had a joyous Father’s Day on Sunday. If you are lucky enough to still have your father, hope you spoiled him and gave him lots of love that day.
Delia gardeners are happy with all the rain we have had, crops are green and growing. Now all we need is some sunshine to encourage the plants – but not those pesky weeds. I know one enterprising lady who planted her garden (for lack of space) in a pallet. We are all watching with interest to see how it does.
Please remember the barbecue at the DCF Church on Sunday, June 26, to welcome Pastor Noel Dwarika and family to our community. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided, bring a salad or dessert if you wish. A bouncy castle and an obstacle course will be on hand for some family fun. BBQ will happen at 12 noon, right after services, everyone is very welcome. The Church Services are at 10:30 a.m., you are welcome to attend.
The Delia General Store will be closing for good at the end of this month, as the owners are looking forward to retirement. We are going to miss Diana and Terry very much, drop in and wish them well in their pending retirement.

A budget is what you stay within when you do without.
