Hus­sar Tri­bune

The Drumheller Mail - - REAL ESTATE - Pam Col­lett Kay Fraser

Bit of trivia for you…In the 1950’s, Hus­sar had their own movie theatre. A guy from Strath­more came out ev­ery Satur­day night with a film for all the young kids to watch. The par­ents would get gro­ceries, go to the lum­ber store, go to the restau­rant, go to the post of­fice or just visit with friends. The guy charged Hus­sar $5.00 to come out.

Get well wishes to Cort Arm­strong and Brooke Fandry who both re­cently had their wis­dom teeth re­moved.

Colby, Toshia, Everett and Kylie Bishop have been busy all sum­mer at­tend­ing rodeos. The boys have been busy rop­ing and the girls have been busy bar­rel rac­ing. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Kylie who fin­ished very well in the fi­nals and brought home some cheques and some prizes. Good job to you all!

Kylie and Toshia Bishop went to the Dou­ble S bar­rel rac­ing week­end in Strath­more. Kylie won the youth av­er­age buckle for the week­end. Con­grat­u­la­tions Kylie!

Lisa Arm­strong and Tracy An­der­son are busy pre­par­ing for Kid­ney March 2016. It is a 100km walk over the course of three days and it will take place on Septem­ber 9 -12.

To sup­port ei­ther Lisa or Tracy go to kid­ney­, sup­port a marcher, spon­sor a marcher for 2016, en­ter first and last name and fol­low their links to their per­sonal home page where you can read what Kid­ney March means to them and sup­port them if you can.

The Hus­sar Li­brary Board and staff wishes to thank every­one who has sup­ported them over the years help­ing make an ex­tremely suc­cess­ful li­brary. We are sad to be clos­ing our cur­rent location. But we are look­ing for­ward to a com­pletely new sys­tem com­ing in the fu­ture. Watch for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion com­ing soon. The li­brary will be hav­ing a clos­ing sale Au­gust 23 and 25 from 3-8. All fur­ni­ture, book­cases, beau­ti­ful desk, etc. and of course books will be sold. All pro­ceeds will go to­ward a new state of the art li­brary smart locker sys­tem com­ing to Hus­sar.

Tyler, Lana, Hayes and Will Arm­strong spent 3 days in Toronto and a day at Ni­a­gara Falls in­clud­ing a night on Fun Street! Hayes’ high­light of the trip was tak­ing in two Blue Jays games. Will’s in­cluded pet­ting a pig, chas­ing seag­ulls on the Toronto Cen­ter Is­land and Ri­p­ley’s Aquar­ium! An­other high­light was check­ing out the CN Tower and a few more sights around the city. They had a great time. Ev­ery day was 30+ along with the hu­mid­ity and the boys didn’t com­plain once about the heat or be­ing tired. They were troop­ers!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Jamie, Christy, Zane, Steele and Austin Van­de­haar for mov­ing to Bin­brook, On­tario. Jamie is work­ing for John Deere Fi­nance at the Oakville Cor­po­rate Of­fice and Christy is at the Merid­ian Credit Union in Hamil­ton. Good luck to the kids as they will start school in their new schools right away.

The Steve Fandry’s, Glenn Mullers, Mitch Trea­cys, Alvin San­dums and Dahms all en­joyed the first Shuswap Olympics held last week to cel­e­brate Me­gan Fandry’s birth­day. Sounds like a lot of fun was had by all. I also heard they had quite an adren­a­line rush on Mon­day as a bear walked through their camp.

Many peo­ple gath­ered at Kristin and Rus­sell’s house on Fri­day night to help Russ cel­e­brate his 50th birth­day! Sounds like Russ woke up on Fri­day night to see 50 buz­zards on his lawn. I guess there was a group of nin­jas around the night be­fore. Happy happy Birth­day Russ. Here’s to many more!!

I guess the buz­zards had a busy week­end as those 50 and a few more flew over to Amy Stokes house to wish her a happy birth­day on Satur­day morn­ing! Happy Birth­day Amy! Here’s to a great year.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Matt San­dum who won a schol­ar­ship from the Hus­sar Schol­ar­ship Fund. This fund was cre­ated with the re­main­ing funds from the Hus­sar Band Pro­gram. Matt will be go­ing to Leth­bridge Col­lege this fall tak­ing En­gi­neer­ing De­sign and Draft­ing for his sec­ond year. Good luck to Matt!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Karen Peake who won tick­ets to Glob­alfest. The fam­ily all en­joyed the night there and then a ho­tel stay.

The Hus­sar His­tor­i­cal AGM will be Septem­ber 12, 2016 at 5:15 p.m. at the Se­niors Cen­tre.

Jead­ene, Grace and Rhett Gre­gory trav­elled to Corona­tion on Au­gust 17 to at­tend Corona­tion’s Fair. Grace and Rhett stayed a few ex­tra days with Jead­ene’s par­ents. They met up with their cousins and did some horse­back rid­ing and raided Gramma’s rasp­berry patch.

On Mon­day, Au­gust 15 Brad and Paige Sev­ert­son and fam­ily trav­elled to Syl­van Lake and spent 6 hours at the wa­ter­slides. They all had an awe­some time and are sad to see the wa­ter­slides clos­ing at the end of this sea­son. They stayed the night in Syl­van then headed to Calgary on Tues­day, where they stayed at the Sher­a­ton Cav­a­lier for more swim­ming and slides. On Wed­nes­day morn­ing they spent 8 hours at Cal­away Park, where every­one had fun on the rides and play­ing games!

Corey, Michelle, Keenan, Mikayla and Mikayla’s friend Michael spent the week of Au­gust 15, with Marvin and Ch­eryl Fisher at the cabin at Kookanoosa.

Cam, Kim, Jo­lene, Jace and Kirk Fraser had a great fam­ily va­ca­tion, trav­el­ling to Vic­to­ria, B.C. to visit with Heather who is work­ing there. They saw lots of wildlife and even went whale watch­ing. They said it is very dry in Vic­to­ria and came home to our beau­ti­ful green coun­try­side.

A group of Hus­sar res­i­dents are try­ing to or­ga­nize a big party for Canada’s 150th birth­day party, next July 1.

Don, Kay and Melv­ina Fraser en­joyed a visit from their niece Erin and Russ Hick­man and grand­son from Drayton Val­ley. Mil­dred Fraser from Bas­sano ac­com­pa­nied them to the farm for a visit.

The Hus­sar Stitch and Chat group could al­ways use more yarn for afghans. We have given away over a dozen al­ready this year and are al­ways mak­ing more.

Har­vest has started in this area and many are com­bin­ing peas or mak­ing silage.

Marvin and Ch­eryl Fisher vis­ited their grand­son Evinn Beck in Swift Cur­rent over the week­end of Au­gust 20-21.

Kay Fraser at­tended Open Farm Days at Old Mac Miller’s Farm, home of Rob and Tammy Miller and fam­ily at Bas­sano. This is an event held all over Al­berta this par­tic­u­lar week­end, let­ting ur­ban and ru­ral peo­ple visit your farm and see where their food comes from etc. Their open house was very well at­tended and peo­ple were able to see chick­ens, sheep, bees, horses, black­smithing, have some Al­berta bar­be­cue beef and shop for lo­cal hand­made gifts or fresh pro­duce.

Rachel Dun­das and the girls spent 10 days on Van­cou­ver Is­land. They en­joyed vis­it­ing fam­ily, tak­ing day trips to Tofino and spent many days on Sproat Lake. The weather was great, full sun each day and mostly over 30, one day was even 35! Rachel also took a 4-day work­shop in Sand Play Ther­apy in Parksville.

Get well wishes to Rus­sell Sev­cik who re­cently spent time in the Strath­more and Calgary hos­pi­tals.

Ken and Lyne Sage and Niels and Barb Larsen just re­turned from their an­nual be­fore har­vest trip to Great Falls.

The Hale house­hold was busy on the week­end of Au­gust 19-20. Rox­Anne and kids along with Grandma Ev and nephew Spencer headed to Lloymin­is­ter for Jayna’s trick rid­ing fi­nals and Brody’s mini­bare­back rid­ing while Brad headed south to Coeur D’Alene for an Iron­man race. Jayna won her age com­pe­ti­tions both Fri­day and Satur­day earn­ing her the yearend Ju­nior cham­pi­onship and a spot to go to Las Ve­gas to com­pete in De­cem­ber. Brody rode a mini­bare­back horse on Sun­day dur­ing the CCWA wagon fi­nals, but was bucked off. On Sun­day Brad com­peted in his race which con­sisted of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run. He said it was the hard­est race he has done and couldn’t wait to be fin­ished. He did have a very re­spectable 14th place fin­ish in his age cat­e­gory out of over 200 other men that age. Over­all, Brad placed 133 out of over 4500 par­tic­i­pants.
