Delia had an­other heavy rain last night, although the thun­der wasn’t quite as hor­ren­dous as our last storm, and, so far, we have been spared the hail dam­age that other com­mu­ni­ties have had to con­tend with. What a shame to see crops and gar­dens wiped out by “the big white com­bine”! All that hard work for noth­ing!

There is noth­ing new to re­port on the ef­forts to save our gen­eral store. The own­ers had reached the time where they wanted to re­tire and spend some years just en­joy­ing their fam­i­lies. It was a good vi­able busi­ness that served the town well and would be a great op­por­tu­nity for some­one who cared for small town life.

There was no June birth­day party at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre due to con­flict­ing sched­ules, so there will be a birth­day party at the Drop In on Wed­nes­day for mem­bers and friends hav­ing birth­days in June and July. The party takes place at the Drop In at 2 p.m., every­one wel­come. Doreen and Eva are hostesses for the day. The next birth­day party at the Drop In will take place in Septem­ber.

The potluck lunch at the Drop In will be Thurs­day, July 21, at noon sharp. Every­one wel­come.

Res­i­dents of Delia: The Henry Kroger wa­ter line has asked for our as­sis­tance in con­serv­ing wa­ter un­til fur­ther no­tice. They have a wa­ter leak by Youngstown which will take 10 – 15 days to fix. With all the rain we have had lately, no one should have to wa­ter their lawns or gar­dens now.

It will be in­ter­est­ing to see if the post of­fice will re­ally go on strike early this week. Sort of like sound­ing their own death knell. With email and on­line ser­vices the post of­fice is nearly ob­so­lete now- why would they has­ten their demise?

Craft Camp at the li­brary on July 25, 27, and 29. Kids aged 6 and up are in­vited to come par­tic­i­pate in a Craft Camp where mak­ing some­thing new is so much fun. Come cre­ate!

On July 20 at 3 p.m., come dis­cover sto­ries and mu­sic, join Rick and Erica Bergh in a sing song and ex­plo­ration of chil­dren’s books at the li­brary. On July 22, from 11 to 12 noon lis­ten to some sto­ries and learn to bring char­ac­ters from Poke­mon and Calvin to life in an in­ter­ac­tive video­con­fer­ence at the Delia li­brary. Rec­om­mended for ages 10 plus.

Birth­day greet­ings to Barry McLeod on the 13th of July, to John Kakuk on the 16th and Tasha Moe on the 17th. Happy an­niver­sary to Jo­lene and Cody Scott on the 12th of July. En­joy your spe­cial day.

Re­mem­ber to be kind – every­one you meet is fight­ing a bat­tle you know noth­ing about.
