Isn’t Al­berta some­thing, we can go from 30+ de­grees on Sun­day to feel­ing like we need to put the fur­nace on for Mon­day. We are luck­ier than some with yes­ter­day’s mois­ture, fam­ily at Buck Lake re­ceived 6 inches of rain in 12 hours and there are com­plete fields that are un­der­wa­ter, so much so that you can’t see the round bales that were in the fields.

On Au­gust 22, there was a Wild Pink Yon­der Trail ride in the area. Don Howard, Jor­den Fer­gu­son and Mary James were the lead­ers of this ride which took the rid­ers through the bad­lands of Wil­son and Doo­ley coulees. I was told it was a suc­cess­ful sunny ride in the morn­ing with a bad storm com­ing in on them in the af­ter­noon. There were ap­prox­i­mately 18 rid­ers par­tic­i­pat­ing in this ride to raise funds for CRINA which stands for Can­cer Re­search In­sti­tute of North­ern Al­berta. The main goal is to raise funds for breast can­cer re­search. There are trail rides held through­out Al­berta for this very worth­while cause. The Wild Pink Yon­der or­ga­ni­za­tion has raised over $800,000 for the cause in the past seven years by do­ing trail rides through­out the prov­ince. Good job every­one.

The Paul Brandt con­cert at the Pas­sion Play site on Sun­day, Au­gust 21 was ex­cel­lent. He is a great en­ter­tainer and played all his hits to a good sized crowd. It made sit­ting in the hot sun worth ev­ery minute.

The Red Deer River Gar­den Show at the Rum­sey Agriplex will be tak­ing en­tries Au­gust 30 from 7 to 10 pm and 31 from 8 am to 10 am. Judg­ing will take place through­out the day on Au­gust 31 with the show open to the gen­eral pub­lic start­ing at 4:00 with sup­per from 5:00-7:00. It’s al­ways a fun event to check out as it’s amaz­ing what is be­ing grown in the area.

We are get­ting closer to the Di­nosaur Val­ley Half Marathon, 10K and 5K which will be held on Septem­ber 11. Reg­is­tra­tion is look­ing good with num­bers up over 350 for the three races. There is still time to join this great event, check out the web­site at: www.di­nosaur­val­ley­half.com.

Our Olympic ath­letes did a great job rep­re­sent­ing our coun­try, makes you proud to be Cana­dian.

Have a great week.
