An­other suc­cess­ful pie mak­ing fundraiser was or­ga­nized by Pam Col­lett and Colleen Arm­strong. There were 632 apple pies made by the 70 vol­un­teers dur­ing the work bee. Thank you to the will­ing work­ers and to Pam and Colleen for their hours of work for the com­mu­nity.

There are a few dessert pans and a large tray miss­ing from the hall. If any­one may still have any of th­ese items at home from a pre­vi­ous func­tion, please re­turn them to the hall as soon as pos­si­ble.

Thanks to Linda Moczul­ski- Thomp­son for the fol­low­ing school news. We have moved down the road for those who are won­der­ing and we are in our tem­po­rary Wheat­land Cross­ing lo­ca­tion. With 375 stu­dents it is a busy but ex­cit­ing place to be. There is no short­age of kids and lots of names to learn and we re­ally have filled all the avail­able rooms in our cur­rent lo­ca­tion and are look­ing for­ward to mov­ing to our real lo­ca­tion in the fu­ture. Please be sure to check the Wheat­land Cross­ing web­page to keep cur­rent on all school ac­tiv­i­ties.

On Sept. 22, we did our first Terry fox Run as Wheat­land Cross­ing School. The amount of $1100 was raised by the stu­dents and it was matched by the Stan­dard Lionette’s Club to make a do­na­tion of $2200 to help in cancer re­search. Thanks to all who ran and sup­ported the stu­dents.

The grade 6 class went to Kananaskis Coun­try for a two day trip. Not only did we see the beau­ti­ful fall colours but we also spent some time bond­ing as a whole group of 36 stu­dents. For­mer Hus­sar stu­dents Ri­ley Arm­strong, Rori Holm, Jayna Hale, Naomi Vogstad and Laura Peake along with Mrs. Moczul­ski par­tic­i­pated in this fun ex­cur­sion.

Many Hus­sar stu­dents are in­volved in ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties. Cross-coun­try run­ning, ju­nior boys’ vol­ley­ball, ju­nior girls’ vol­ley­ball and some se­nior vol­ley­ball all have en­thu­si­as­tic mem­bers. Watch for more news as the sea­son pro­gresses. Just a lit­tle glimpse of us; we may have moved but we still look for­ward to our com­mu­nity sup­port.

The com­mu­nity would like to ex­tend sym­pa­thy to the fam­ily of Mrs. Alice (Nielsen) Quinn who re­cently passed away in Cal­gary. Alice and her hus­band Gun­nar, de­ceased for some time, lived northwest of Hus­sar and raised their fam­ily of 8 here. Later she re­mar­ried and is sur­vived by her hus­band and chil­dren.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to par­ents Colton and Ros­alee Clark of On­tario who wel­comed their third child, baby girl Abi­gail, on Septem­ber 17. Proud grand­par­ents are Jardi Clark and Neil Clark. Colton will have his hands full with 3 lit­tle girls!
