Did you know that in the 14 years Hus­sar School has col­lected Camp­bell Soup la­bels they have col­lected 129,388 points which were used to “buy” things for the school?? That is a lot of soup con­sumed. It was a very worth­while project and it is sad that it is end­ing. Many thanks to all who saved la­bels for us from this com­mu­nity and many sur­round­ing ones as well as the Strathmore Hos­pi­tal and Bas­sano Play­fair Lodge.

The Vil­lage of Hus­sar will be host­ing a July 1 Cel­e­bra­tion for Canada’s 150th Year in Con­fed­er­a­tion. This will hap­pen in 2017. The Vil­lage is look­ing for any­one who wants to make a do­na­tion to this event. If you make a do­na­tion, you will re­ceive a char­i­ta­ble tax re­ceipt. Che­ques can be made out to Vil­lage of Hus­sar and mailed to Box 100.

The last day of Li­brary Pro­gram was held on Au­gust 23. The event was sup­posed to hap­pen at the Hall but was moved to the Arena be­cause of all the rain. There was boun- cy cas­tles, ring toss, bat­ting game and face paint­ing. The kids en­joyed pop­corn, cot­ton candy and sno-cones. Spe­cial thanks to Dar­ren for his help mov­ing the ac­tiv­i­ties in­door!

A huge thank you to Maryann and the Hus­sar Mu­nic­i­pal Li­brary for spon­sor­ing and run­ning such a won­der­ful and suc­cess­ful Li­brary pro­gram this year. I have heard noth­ing but great things from all the kids.

Verna Hery­ford, Donna Col­lett, Yvonne Com­stock and Wendy Kaiser en­joyed a few days away to Moose Jaw and Man­i­tou Beach. Af­ter find­ing all places west were booked and ex­pen­sive they de­cided to head east. They en­joyed some gam­bling, toured the un­der­ground tun­nels, went bar hop­ping and re­ally en­joyed the min­eral springs at Man­i­tou Beach. While we have had lots of rain and flood­ing here, at Man­i­tou the beach is slowly go­ing un­der water for the past few years and they are meet­ing to try to find a so­lu­tion. But be­cause of the salt content they are hav­ing a tough time. Quite the place to see.

Barb, Erin and Ja­son Slemko spent Au­gust 1419 at Barb’s par­ent’s home in Calgary. Erin at­tended a ringette camp put on by the Na­tional Ringette League, while Ja­son at­tended the Edge Hockey School. Both camps were held at the Trico Cen­tre in the South East. The kids en­joyed their week back on the ice work­ing on skills for the up­com­ing sea­son.

Leroy & Dar­lene Fandry along with Scott & Mon­ica Mor­row from Au­gust 14-21 en­joyed a hol­i­day through PEI, Nova Sco­tia and the Cabot Trail. They had a brief stop in Monc­ton, NB af­ter cross­ing the Con­fed­er­a­tion Bridge. Many of the fa­mous Mar­itime sights were vis­ited and the Cabot Trail was beau­ti­ful. While on Pier 21 in Hal­i­fax, Mon­ica found her great grand­moth­ers (Ethel Clark) pass­port from Liver­pool on the ship af­ter the Ti­tanic. They came home feel­ing very for­tu­nate to be able to see this beau­ti­ful part of Canada.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Garry and Erin (Fandry) Har­wood on the birth of their beau­ti­ful new daugh­ter Mad­di­son Amelia Har­wood on Au­gust 17. She weighed 9lbs 14 oz. Leroy and Dar­lene are ex­cited to have their third great grand­child.

The Dalum/Hus­sar Lutheran Parish would like to ex­tend an in­vi­ta­tion to the com­mu­nity to a cel­e­bra­tion of Pas­tor Dan Hen­drick­son’s 25th year of or­di­na­tion.

To com­mem­o­rate this oc­ca­sion, the con­gre­ga­tions are rais­ing a “guitar fund” to go to­wards the pur­chase of a new guitar to re­place the one he broke ear­lier this year. Any­one in the com­mu­nity that has been touched by Pas­tor Dan’s min­istry that wishes to con­trib­ute to the fund can do so by con­tact­ing the fol­low­ing:

The Art and Dianne Taubert fam­i­lies trav­elled to Aspen Cross­ing on Au­gust 26 to cel­e­brate Kris­ten and Peter An­der­son’s 25th Wed­ding An- niver­sary. They had a very quick bite to eat at the Mossleigh Bar’n Grill and then went on the Twi­light Train Ex­cur­sion. There were many in­ter­est­ing in­di­vid­u­als on the train pro­vid­ing a great even­ing of en­ter­tain­ment. There was even a mar­riage pro­posal. Peter asked Kris­ten if she would marry him again. She said yes and was pre­sented with a rather large ruby soli­taire ring. They re­turned to Kris­ten and Peter’s for cake and cof­fee. All 18 said they re­ally en­joyed the train tour.

The Hus­sar Mu­nic­i­pal Li­brary Board; Tim Frank, Kathy Dundas, Kris­ten An­der­son and Jen­nifer Pratt, along with Li­brary Man­ager Gay Harms, would like to thank every­one that sup­ported our book and fur­ni­ture sale at the li­brary last week.

While we are ex­plor­ing new li­brary al­ter­na­tives, you will still be able to ob­tain books at Chi­nook Fi­nan­cial. The books are there for every­one’s use. They will be lent on the hon­our sys­tem, so please feel free to pop in and pickup chil­dren’s books and cur­rent best sell­ers. Please re­turn the items back to the dis­plays. Thank you to Chi­nook Fi­nan­cial for pro­vid­ing the space and to the Marigold Li­brary Sys­tem for pro­vid­ing the best sell­ers.
