The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE - Eva Nielsen (403) 364-3964

Hope ev­ery­one had an en­joy­able long week­end, it may have been a lit­tle damp for camp­ing but the sun did come out for part of the time. Last long week­end of the sum­mer, ex­cept for La­bor Day. Pretty soon we’ll be dig­ging out the snow blow­ers! Ugh!

We all want to send our best wishes for a speedy re­cov­ery to Lisa Skaan­ing, Lisa had an hor­rific fall in Delia last Thurs­day, re­sult­ing in se­vere in­juries. She was trans­ported by am­bu­lance to hospi­tal in Drumheller and from there to Red Deer for fur­ther treat­ment. We are keep­ing her in our prayers for a full and quick re­cov­ery.

Please be very care­ful walk­ing in Delia right now, as con­struc­tion is tak­ing place and there are many dan­ger­ous ex­ca­va­tions and heavy equip­ment, watch for signs and watch your step.

The buzz around town is that the Delia Gen­eral Store has been ac­quired through group in­vest­ment and will re­open un­der the name “High­land Mar­ket”. It’s ex­cit­ing to know our com­mu­nity will once again have im­por­tant needs and con­ve­nience items avail­able. I hear they are ex­plor­ing man­age­ment op­tions. No firm date as to the open­ing. Wel­come news for res­i­dents of Delia!

They will serve burg­ers and hot dogs from 11 un­til 2 , it’s been ru­mored there may be cake. Stop by and get your name in a draw and chat with the ex­pe­ri­enced staff. There might even be a sur­prise ap­pear­ance by their famed mas­cot, Moun­tain Max.

Had a lovely sur­prise when a dear old friend of Bye­moor days, Ly­dia Mor­lock, and her daugh­ter, Louise, stopped in for a visit on Friday. A great day hash­ing over old mem­o­ries and good times. Ly­dia ac­tu­ally grew up in the Delia area so she will prob­a­bly be re­mem­bered by some former neigh­bors.

Lil and Ian Mor­ri­son cel­e­brated an­other year of wed­ded bliss this long week­end, it was also their son, Ryan’s birth­day on Au­gust 1. Norma See­gar will cel­e­brate her spe­cial day on the 4th of Au­gust. Norman Mar­shall is the birth­day boy on Au­gust 7. En­joy your spe­cial day.
