The last long week­end of the sum­mer is com­ing up on Fri­day, guess that means sum­mer is over. School will be­gin soon, some school dis­tricts may have started al­ready. My grand­kids go back af­ter the long week­end –they don’t like to be re­minded of it.

News from the High­land Mar­ket is that they hope to open some­time in Septem­ber, con­struc­tion is on­go­ing so it looks quite in­ter­est­ing. It will be a great con­ve­nience for the res­i­dents of Delia to have the store back.

The gen­eral meet­ing at the Drop In Cen­tre will hap­pen Thurs­day morn­ing, Septem­ber 8, at 10 in the morn­ing, come have a cof­fee, sit in on the meet­ing and hear what the Drop In has planned for the rest of the year. You don’t have to be a mem­ber to at­tend any of the events at the Drop In, as mem­ber­ships are avail­able but not re­quired. Just come to visit over cof­fee. There is go­ing to be a pre­sen­ta­tion on Se­nior Hous­ing at the Drop In Cen­tre on Tues­day morn­ing, Septem­ber 13 at 10 a.m. Come find out what choices are avail­able. The birth­day party for Septem­ber is sched­uled for Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 14, to cel­e­brate the birthdays of mem­bers and friends who cel­e­brate their spe­cial day in Au­gust and Septem­ber. A Pot Luck lunch is held at the Drop In ev­ery third Thurs­day of the month at twelve noon, bring a dish and join us for lunch.

I have a sad mes­sage from Nancy Stiles to share. Every­one liv­ing in Delia a few years ago was fa­mil­iar with the sight of Nancy Stiles rid­ing her horse, Cole, or driv­ing Cole as he pulled that beau­ti­ful wagon. When Nancy and her fam­ily moved to New­berry, Nancy rode Cole all the way to their new home. He was a tal­ented and beau­ti­ful an­i­mal, com­pletely de­voted to his mis­tress. Cole be­came quite ill and had to be put down just re­cently, leav­ing his fam­ily with heavy hearts and fond mem­o­ries.

Road con­struc­tion con­tin­ues in Delia, please walk and drive with ex­tra cau­tion. Roads are treach­er­ous and heavy ma­chin­ery is mov­ing rapidly-you are prob­a­bly not go­ing to get the right of way. Be care­ful.

The Delia Skat­ing Club is hav­ing an in­for­ma­tion and reg­is­tra­tion meet­ing at the Delia School on Septem­ber 12 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. There will be in­for­ma­tion about en­roll­ment for chil­dren in Can Skate, Star Skate, Pre Power Skate, and Can Power Skate. The sea­son runs from Novem­ber to March.

En­joy the last long week­end of the sum­mer. Drive with care, Delia has no res­i­dents to spare!
