Mon­day, June 20 the Nazareth Church Women held a very nice potluck lun­cheon for 14 ladies at the home of Jan­ice Jensen on her pa­tio. The weather co­op­er­ated well for a lovely day. Lorna Ka­pa­niuk started the lun­cheon with a devo­tion and prayer. A good visit was had by all at­tend­ing. Guests came from Strath­more and who­ever par­tic­i­pated in bi­ble stud­ies and helped with any of our quilt­ing projects and other projects were in­vited.

Nazareth Lutheran Church’s youth held a garage sale on Sport’s Day to raise money for their trip to the CLAY gath­er­ing in PEI in Au­gust. It was a suc­cess and they are on their way to PEI!

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 Commu- nity 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.

Elvis up­date. He re-ap­peared last week after be­ing gone for 10 days. He showed up a cou­ple of times to eat and drink and he is gone again. We be­lieve he has a sec­ond lo­ca­tion that he is get­ting food and water from that must be a fair dis­tance from town. At this point we be­lieve it is some­where straight east of town. How­ever, it re­ally could be any­where. If any­one knows his sec­ond lo­ca­tion it would be help­ful for us to make sure he stays safe. Con­tact Traci Ras­mussen or Carolyn Larsen Faqcett if you have any info
