Hello Hand Hills…the weather is still re­ally un­pre­dictable but we are still wait­ing for that In­dian Sum­mer. The weather for the rest of this week is sup­posed to be in the 20’s so here is hop­ing. Com­bines will be go­ing full tilt to get in the huge har­vest, truck­ers will be revving up to haul the bales and hope­fully we can fin­ish hay­ing. Here’s hop­ing.

They were hop­ing for a boy and a boy they did get. Cori and Kirby Black have wel­comed Skyes Caul to their fam­ily. This is an­other grand­child for Larry and Rose­mary Rosin. The count is now two grand­sons and 10 grand­daugh­ters. This is also an­other Great Grand­son for Ed and Carol Vogstad. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all.

Wel­come to the Grand­mother Club Jean Lam­son. Son Aaron and wife Danielle had a baby girl that Jean can now spoil. Con­grat­u­la­tions.

Also en­ter­ing that grand­par­ent stage is Dar­lene and Keith McDon­ald, from over Rose­lynn way. Joel and Shan­non wel­comed a baby girl just this past week. This baby girl won the lot­tery when it comes to grand­par­ents. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the McDon­alds’

Sym­pa­thy from the Hand Hills com­mu­nity is go­ing to Melissa Rosin and her fam­ily on the pass­ing of her grand­fa­ther Otto Hoff. He was a great man that will be missed. We had the plea­sure of deal­ing with Otto on a few horse trailer deals and he was a true busi­ness man. Keep his mem­ory close and he will al­ways be close.

They did it again. The Shiloh Cat­tle Com­pany won big in Arm­strong, B.C. at the cat­tle show. Alisha Min­chau de­serves the recog­ni­tion this time as she won Grand Cham­pion Fe­male in the all breeds ju­nior show and she re­ceived the RBC schol­ar­ship and ju­nior am­bas­sador buckle. Any­one that knows Alisha know that she is ded­i­cated and is so de­serv­ing of these awards! I fore­see more awards in the fu­ture for this cat­tle gal!

Delia is go­ing to be the home of the new and im­proved High­land Mar­ket. I for one can’t wait to shop there. What an as­set to the com­mu­nity. To all those in­volved pat your­self on your back for this com­mu­nity ef­fort. Open­ing soon!

The Delia Fall Fair is com­ing up in a month or so. Plan to par­tic­i­pate. This venue is part of the rea­son that the arena and such are open and run­ning in Delia. Like the store and Lukes’, imag­ine Delia with­out the arena or the curl­ing rink and that thought should makes one want to sup­port ev­ery ef­fort. See you at the fair!

The Donna Grif­fith Me­mo­rial Fam­ily Rodeo is com­ing up this Satur­day, the 17. There are 200 con­tes­tants so you can en­joy a lot of rodeo ac­tion from Mites up to the Adults. There will be the fa­mous Stick Horse Race, Mut­ton Bust­ing, Bar­rels, Poles, Goats, Rop­ing and the re­vival of the Hide Race and the Re­lay Race. Come spend the day in the Hills, help us re­mem­ber a great lady who loved rodeo and cheer on the con­tes­tants. It all starts at 10 a.m. There is a booth on the grounds and the day will wind up with a bon­fire. See you in the Hills!

The Hand Hills Turkey Sup­per is com­ing soon. Mark Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 23 on your cal­en­dar!

Are you in­ter­ested in a craft week­end? Plans are in the works for a two day craft get to­gether for Oc­to­ber 1 and 2. I will keep you posted. If you are in­ter­ested please phone me. Let’s take the time!

Till next week…come en­joy the Rodeo!

Part-time Book­keeper re­quired for lo­cal com­pany.
