The Stan­dard Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity En­hance­ment So­ci­ety has a few up­dates on what’s hap­pen­ing with the Mem­ory Lane Path and Park Project. Gary Brown­ing, land­scape ar­chi­tect from Brown­ing De­sign in Cal­gary, has been en­gaged to draw up the master plan for the park. Along with his gen­er­ous of­fer to work on a pro bono ba­sis, he brings with him a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence and a whole lot of en­thu­si­asm for the project. This is a great boost to the progress of the plans. The fo­cus for now will be on the first 2 blocks at the east end of the 1km stretch. Through the Wheat­land Com­mu­nity En­hance­ment Fund, $25,000 was granted and grate­fully re­ceived. The Acres for Mem­o­ries wheat crop south of the vil­lage was planted and sprayed by lo­cal vol­un­teers and is look­ing good—the har­vest will hope­fully bring in more funds for the Mem­ory Lane Park. Some do­na­tions by in­di­vid­u­als and com­pa­nies have been re­ceived as well, and watch for the up­com­ing cash cal­en­dar fundraiser. Please be re­minded that res­i­dents wish­ing to con­trib­ute their sup­port can re­ceive tax de­ductible re­ceipts if they make their cheques payable to the Vil­lage of Stan­dard, with “Mem­ory Lane” des­ig­nated on the memo line. Farm­ers can choose to make their do­na­tions through a spe­cial ac­count which has been set up with CHS. More up­dates will be forth­com­ing. For more in­for­ma­tion con­tact Don Sundgaard, Jackie Jensen, Moe Zaleschuk, Louise We­len, Ron Cor­biell or Mayor Alan Larsen.

The Stan­dard Mu­nic­i­pal Li­brary is host­ing its sec­ond an­nual Golf Tour­na­ment in Bas­sano on July 15. For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact Mark or El­iz­a­beth at Gates Agen­cies, if you have a team you want to en­ter or are able to spon­sor a hole!

Dyanna Cou­ture has a ton of baby con­vict cich- lids 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 Dyanna at 403-644-3998 if you would like some. Don’t have a fish tank? She can help you out with that too!

As al­ways, sub­mis­sions can be made to stan­dard­newz@gmail.com or to Pas­tor Dyanna Cou­ture at 403-6443998. Please try to have your sub­mis­sions in by early evening on Sun­day!
