Verdant Valley Eye Opener
Congratulations to Munson and community on the opening of their new hall. The grand opening took place on Saturday, October 1 and Fred and Gerri Shadlock attended to represent the Verdant Valley Ag Society.
Because of the rain on Saturday which brought harvest to a standstill we were able to attend two surprise parties, on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we attended a party to honour the Calgary Stampede princess, Chelsey Jacobson, hosted by her parents Doug and Lori Jacobson on their acreage south of the Monarch Hill (Nacmine). The party involved the other two Calgary Stampede royalty as well. Then on Sunday we attended a surprise birthday party in Camrose for Cheryl Leonhardt’s special birthday.
We are glad to see Kevin Kuvaja looking well after suffering a heart attack and undergoing surgery in Calgary. Kevin and Christina really appreciate the support of friends and neighbours during this anxious time.
Belated birthday greetings to Karen Leonhardt and Ken Ireland on October 3. 51 years ago when Karen was born on that date we had not harvested a single bushel of grain but the rest of October was sunny and warm and everyone completed their harvest. So this is not our first late harvest.
Happy birthday this week to Jim Wilson on October 7, Kasen Wilson on October 9 and Celeste Poland on October 10.
Best wishes and congratulations to Frank and Eunice Wilson on the occasion of their 60th wedding anniversary on October 12. What a special milestone!
