We had a sur­prise visit from my nephew Stacey Howard and his fam­ily last Mon­day. They are from Peers, Al­berta (south of White­court).

On Friday, July 22 Fred and Gerri Shad­lock took in the pony chuck­wagon races at Rock­y­ford. They did not see any rodeo but no­ticed in the pro­gram that Har­ley Wil­son and son Wy­att of Rim­bey par­tic­i­pated in the slack that day. Wy­att was in steer wrestling and Har­ley in tie down rop­ing and both in the team rop­ing. Har­ley is son of Carl and Mary Ellen Wil­son of Rim­bey. Fred Ewing drove his chuck­wagon in a safe race at the Rock­y­ford Rodeo.

The sym­pa­thy of the com­mu­nity is sent to the Ewing and Pow­ell fam­i­lies on the pass­ing of Dave Pow­ell, hus­band of Lori and fa­ther of Tyson and Kas­sidy, on July 22, 2016. A ser­vice of re­mem­brance was held on Friday, July 29 from the Rosedale Hall.

On Satur­day, Au­gust 13 the Ver­dant Val­ley Ag So­ci­ety will be host­ing a Chore Horse com­pe­ti­tion at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter from 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm. The Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­ter is 15 kms east of Drumheller on paved High­way 576. A Chore Horse com­pe­ti­tion in­volves heavy work horses like Cly­des, Cana­di­ans and oth­ers. A course is set up and a timed event has horses and own­ers go­ing through a course which tests their skill and train­ing. The hope is that young and older spec­ta­tors will re-live some of the pi­o­neer days with dis­plays of an­tique auto and ma­chin­ery, ex­hibits of quilt­ing, spin­ning and weav­ing, old time home mak­ing dis­plays and pic­tures of horse pow­ered farm­ing. There will be ac­tiv­i­ties for kids and a con­ces­sion for snacks. Ad­mis­sion for the af­ter­noon is free. A Beef on a Bun sup­per will be served start­ing at 5:00 pm with old time mu­sic. Tick­ets for the sup­per can be pur­chased at River­side Value Drug Mart in Drumheller. For more in­for­ma­tion see ad in the Drumheller Mail on July 27 and Au­gust 10 or call Lyle at 403-820-6779.

Happy birth­day this week to Shelly (Keirle) Polzin on Au­gust 5, Carol Keirle and Robyn McDougald on Au­gust 7.

Best wishes on your wed­ding an­niver­sary to Lacey ( Wil­son) and Grant Beatty on your first an­niver­sary on Au­gust 8.
