Delia is busy with the Ball Tour­na­ment this week­end, the camp­ground is full of campers, mo­tor homes and trucks. I have not heard any scores so far, but it seems like ev­ery­one had a lot of fun.

Con­struc­tion of the new wa­ter line con­tin­ues in Delia, with deep ex­ca­va­tions and large heavy machin­ery, please watch your step if you must walk near the con­struc­tion zone.

On Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 3, 20 mem­bers of the Drop In Cen­tre, and friends, at­tended the Rose­bud The­atres’ mati­nee pro­duc­tion of “Tent Meet­ing.” It fea­tured gospel singing with a good story line, as well as sev­eral comic mo­ments. The ac­tors played sev­eral parts, each very con­vinc­ingly. Ev­ery­one en­joyed the show im­mensely, thanks to the or­ga­niz­ers and the drivers who car pooled. This was a pro­duc­tion well worth see­ing.

Re­mem­ber the Moun­tain View Credit Union will cel­e­brate their 12th an­niver­sary in Delia on Fri­day, Au­gust 19, at 11 a.m. Hot dogs and burg­ers will be served (with the pos­si­bil­ity of cake) the com­mu­nity is in­vited to join them for the BBQ, get your name in a draw, chat with the staff, and pre­haps meet Moun­tain Max, the famed Moun­tain View mas­cot.

The Delia Gen­eral Store has been sold and re­named “High- land Mar­ket”. We are all ea­gerly await­ing the grand open­ing and look for­ward to meet­ing the new man­age­ment.

We con­tinue to wish Lisa Skaan­ing a com­plete and speedy re­cov­ery from her un­for­tu­nate ac­ci­dent in Delia. Lisa will soon be home from the hospi­tal but will have to cope with her left arm im­mo­bi­lized in a cast. Lisa is left handed so this will be a real chal­lenge. This would be a dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tion even for some­one liv­ing in a fam­ily en­vi­ron­ment with fam­ily mem­bers to pro­vide care. For a sin­gle per­son liv­ing alone it is dev­as­tat­ing.

Terry and Daryl Trefz have been hav­ing sum­mer fun ca­noe­ing down the Red Deer River to Jof­fre Bridge. The fun in­cluded camp­ing on a re­mote island and get­ting soaked in a rain­storm. Good way to en- joy your sum­mer-way to go! Things got even more ex­cit­ing as their two young grand­daugh­ters, Hay­ley and Evie, ar­rived to spend a few days and kept them very busy!

MineCraft Camp is at the Delia Library from Au­gust 24 – 26. Kids aged 8 and up are in­vited to come join in ac­tiv­i­ties with Minecraft. The camp will end with a big tour­na­ment chal­leng­ing kids in Hanna and lots of prizes to win. Tons of fun! Please pre-regis­ter to re­serve your spot. Lim­ited spa­ces avail­able.

Birthdays for Au­gust in­clude Jackie Fried­ley on the 9th, Jim Scott on the 11th, and Kent Fried­ley on the 20th. Peggy and Lloyd Anderson will cel­e­brate their spe­cial day on the 15th of Au­gust. Have a per­fect spe­cial day.

Rid­ing a horse bare­back re­ally makes you feel bet­ter off!
