Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

What a beau­ti­ful week­end of sun­shine and hu­mid weather. The silage and hay­ing equip­ment is run­ning up and down the roads so take care when you see them. Ev­ery farmer works hard at be­ing safe as they en­ter and exit their fields but there are lots of blind spots on the big equip­ment when a smaller ve­hi­cle can be in­vis­i­ble to them.

As ev­ery­one is busy with field work or va­ca­tion, there is very lit­tle news to tell you about. The his­tory book sales are pro­gress­ing well so if you haven’t pur­chased your copy yet make sure you do. There are plenty of copies avail­able at the li­brary or you can call Dariel Mc­Naughton and Mary New­ton. The li­brary will also be host­ing a Minecraft day for the kids on Au­gust 9 if you have a young one who would like to learn more about the game or how to join the li­brary’s on­line site. Keep in mind that a li­brary mem­ber­ship is af­ford­able for any­one to join and there are so many things avail­able through the web­site that books are only a small part of what we have to of­fer. Come in and check out what there is, I think you will be im­pressed.

The S.T.A.R.S. Ride is fast ap­proach­ing so get your pledge sheets filled out and join in on Au­gust 7 for a fun day of horse­back rid­ing, silent auc­tions, games, raf­fle, break­fast, lunch and din­ner, poker hands; the list goes on.

Hats off to the fel­low who is tak­ing care of the Rum­sey cor­ner. He has been do­ing such a good job. It re­ally draws the eye as you go by or turn into town. His name is Sean Proud and is shar­ing yard space up at Greg Prim­roses so not far from town. If you see him work­ing up on the cor­ner, make sure you give him a honk or a wave to let him know how much his work is ap­pre­ci­ated. For you va­ca­tion go­ers:

A tramp knocks on the door of an inn known as St. Ge­orge and the Dragon. The land­lady an­swers. “Could you give a poor man some­thing to eat?” asks the tramp.

“No!” yells the woman, slam­ming the door in his face. A few min­utes later, he knocks again. “Now what do you want?” the woman asks. “Could I have a few words with St. Ge­orge?” Have a great week.
