Here we are into the last week of Au­gust, the be­gin­ning of school, hope­fully the start of har­vest for the farm­ers, and birthdays and an­niver­saries for Septem­ber.

Birth­day greet­ings go to: Jo­ce­lyn Sorensen 5th, Elsie Gar­son 12th, Les Bell 13th, Jean McGhee 15th, Jor­dan Wil­ton 22nd, and Todd McGhee 29th.

There are no an­niver­saries in Septem­ber - I guess every­one was busy har­vest­ing.

I was pleased to see the full page story of our lo­cal boys and their dream of open­ing their own brew­ery. Can’t wait un­til I can try all the brands out. I’m sure it will be a suc­cess as they are all smart.

This past Satur­day I was in­vited to join an an­nual golf tour­na­ment spon­sored by Ross and Al­li­son Eremko for friends and rel­a­tives. There were some twenty folks from Sherwood Park, Calgary, points in Saskatchewan and lo­cals. It was a fun time and as I hadn’t been able to golf for over 8 years, I was al­lowed to putt out some­times for one of the four­some I was cart driver for. It felt good to hold a golf club again and I did make one putt in three tries. It was a fun time for all with a great sup­per later and party time af­ter the food, and also some fine en­ter­tain­ment. Thanks again Eremko’s.

A short re­minder that school is start­ing this week so be sure to obey all the speed zones and be aware of lit­tle ones just start­ing out on their own. Be aware of the older ones too as they some­times don’t obey the rules for cross­ing the street.

If you are out on the high­way and catch up to large ma­chin­ery, re­mem­ber that they don’t move as fast as you would like and don’t be try­ing to pass when un­safe. They are up much higher than you and can see traf­fic com­ing long be­fore you. Give them a chance to pull over when they can and don’t be rude. They pro­vide your food.

Have a good week and I think there are sup­posed to be a few days of sun and no rain! If so, get out and en­joy!
