Hello Hand Hills… with sum­mer upon us I am prob­a­bly not go­ing to be get­ting much news but if I have it I will write it so please con­tinue to send me your news.. What a wet coun­try we live in!! Over the past week­end we had 3 ½’”. When and if that sun de­cides to shine the coun­try is go­ing to be so green and the crops and the hay land are go­ing to love it. We are so for­tu­nate. Theresa diegel pegged July and Au­gust as our wettest months. We all know that here in the Hills once the tap shuts off it might not open again so we will en­joy this wet weather!

Hope that ev­ery­one had a great Canada Day! We do live in the best coun­try in the world. One just has to lis­ten to the news and that fact comes to light.

Most of this col­umn is ded­i­cated to Con­grat­u­lat­ing some very spe­cial peo­ple that have ties to the Hills. Some of this is very late but the Stam­pede re­port, no in­ter­net last week and just life got in the way of re­port­ing it ear­lier. My apolo­gies but the Con­grat­u­la­tions are still the same.

The Grad­u­at­ing Class of 2016 from Hanna JCC High School had three stu­dents that have roots here in the Hills! Reo Rau­gust, Rae­lene Min­chau and Shane Olesen . These three young grads made their fam­i­lies very proud of their ac­com­plish­ments. Go take on the world, it is yours to conquer.

Grad­u­at­ing on the week­end of June 4 was Lo­gan Poul­son. Lo­gan has vol­un­teered ex­ten­sively at the Hand Hills and as he moves on in life he will be missed here in the Hills at the var­i­ous func­tions . Keep in touch Lo­gan! Bill and Rose you must be so proud of Lo­gan as he is an out­stand­ing young per­son who has a great com­mu­nity spirit.

Veron­ica Min­chau Grad­u­ated from Olds Col­lege with her An­i­mal Health Tech­ni­cian De­gree. Con­grat­u­la­tions and en­joy your new job in your cho­sen ca­reer!

An­other Great Grand­child was added to Rein­hold Do­er­ings’ Fam­ily Tree. Baby Boy Cash Robert was born to Drake Glad­dish and Chyanne Do­er­ing and is a baby brother to Lu­cas. En­joy your fam­ily!

An­other Award for Shiloh Cat­tle Com­pany and this one comes in the form of be­ing se­lected Pure­bred Breeder of the Year for 2016. All the time and ef­fort that Blake and Darcy put into their cat­tle herd is be­ing rec­og­nized! Con­grat­u­la­tions to All in­volved.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Dave and Shireylee Shields! They tied the knot on June 18 at a very spe­cial wed­ding cer­e­mony in the Foothills of Al­berta. Many happy, happy years are wished to this happy cou­ple. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Merna Shields on this spe­cial oc­ca­sion, you must be so proud of your son and his new wife.

And they won the race! Colt Cos­grave won the Ponoka Stam­pede Dash for Cash and is $50,000.00 richer, will be driv­ing a new truck around the Hills and has a beau­ti­ful bronze to dis­play on his fire­place. Hand Hills is very proud and happy for the Cos­graves. This was a long time com­ing and very well de­served. We watch Colt dur­ing Spring Train­ing and his man­ner of train­ing horses is truly a site to see. He is so re­laxed and there­fore his horses are too. He keeps them calm and it is pay­ing off. We will be watch­ing for more wins as the sum­mer pro­gresses. Calgary Stam­pede and the Polka Dots, Go Colt Go!

Till next week… or the week af­ter or when­ever you send me some news! En­joy your sum­mer!
