The mos­qui­tos are still hun­gry and fu­ri­ous. It makes it tough to do any gar­den­ing and it is that time of year when ev­ery­thing seems to be ready. Beets, car­rots and beans are ready for pick­ling, if you can just keep the bugs away long enough to get them picked.

This past Satur­day, Au­gust 6, the Mun­son 300 Raf­fle Draw lucky win­ner was Karen McMil­lan of the Dalum area. Con­grat­u­la­tions Karen and thank you for sup­port­ing the new hall project.

Sun­day, Au­gust 7 was the 27th An­nual Ride for STARS at the TL Bar Ranch pre­sented by the Rum­sey Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety. I haven’t got many de­tails but I did hear that they raised ap­prox­i­mately $40,000.

That is amaz­ing. Con­grat­u­la­tions to ev­ery­one in­volved. It’s a lot of work and we so ap­pre­ci­ate all that you do to help keep STARS in the sky.

It was a busy week­end with all that was hap­pen­ing around the com­mu­nity. We en­joyed the Blue Rodeo con­cert held at the Pas­sion Play site on Satur­day night and are look­ing for­ward to the Paul Brandt con­cert com­ing up on Au­gust 21.

Cal­en­dar Re­minders: The Ver­dant Val­ley Ag So­ci­ety Draft Horse Com­pe­ti­tion on Au­gust 13 start­ing at 1:00 at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­tre. Ad­mis­sion is free to the Chore Horse Com­pe­ti­tion from 1:00 – 4:00 and sup­per start­ing at 5:00. There will be a bouncy cas­tle and other ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids through­out the day. Sounds like a great way to spend a Satur­day af­ter­noon. Thank you to the Ver­dant Val­ley Ag So­ci­ety for spon­sor­ing this event.

The Di­nosaur Val­ley Half Marathon, 10K and 5K will be on Septem­ber 11. To regis­ter go to the web­site www.di­nosaur­val­ley­half.com.

Have a good week and be kind that you meet.
