Ver­dant Val­ley Eye Opener

The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS -

Twenty four fe­male mem­bers of the Doris Wade fam­ily spent last Satur­day and Sun­day at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­ter en­joy­ing some qual­ity time to­gether and learn­ing from their mom and grandma, Doris, how to quilt. This quilt­ing work­shop was or­ga­nized by Doris’ daugh­ters. Five of the six sis­ters – Ber­nice, Va­lerie, Jean, Jackie and Gwen were able to at­tend and two of Terry’s daugh­ters. There were four great grand­daugh­ters present as well. Ev­ery­one brought their sew­ing ma­chines and ma­te­rial to make quilts just like the 4H Sew­ing Club work­shops years ago. One ten year old grand­daugh­ter made her own small quilt for a baby crib. They had pot luck meals and stayed at Jackie’s and Doris’ homes. What a great idea to get the gen­er­a­tions to­gether and pass on the ex­per­tise of Grandma Doris! They en­joyed the week­end so much that they prob­a­bly will do it again.

The Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­ter is a busy place this sum­mer with ev­ery week­end booked un­til mid July. This week­end the fam­ily of Cindy Poland is cel­e­brat­ing her mother’s birth­day at the Cen­ter.

On Wed­nes­day, June 15, twelve mem­bers and four hus­bands of the Ver­dant Val­ley and Dor­cas Women’s In­sti­tute met for a wiener roast and evening at the home of Pat and Barb Mur­ray. The In­sti­tute had an en­try in the Hand Hills Cen­ten­nial pa­rade and Pat McDougald, Gerri Shad­lock and Diana Rowe rode in it. Diana Rowe was del­e­gate to the an­nual AWI Pro­vin­cial Con­fer­ence in Cam­rose on June 10 and gave a re­port. Gerri Shad­lock also at­tended the con­fer­ence.

Happy birth­day this week to Doug Wil­son on June 24, Matthew McDougald on June 26, Bert Dekeyser and Greg Polzin on June 29.

Best wishes on your wed­ding an­niver­sary to Kevin and Christina Ku­vaja on June 25 and Tim and Marg Ewing on June 29.
