I was shocked to pick up the pa­per this morn­ing and see the obit­u­ary of an old friend. Sin­cere con­do­lences from ev­ery­one in Delia to the fam­ily of Jim Scott. Jim and Pat farmed in Delia and were among the first peo­ple we met when we moved here. Deep­est sym­pa­thy to all of Jim’s fam­ily and many friends at such a sad time for the fam­ily. The same pa­per – the Drumheller Mail,, had the obit­u­ar­ies of other well known peo­ple from our area that this col­umn men­tioned be­fore, so again deep­est sym­pa­thy to the fam­i­lies of Eileen Smyth and Bud Bixby. We are los­ing too many good peo­ple from our area . It is very sad.. and so hard on the fam­i­lies.

The Delia An­nual Fair, spon­sored by the Ag. So­ci­ety, is over for an­other year. The day was not as per­fect an au­tumn day as one would wish, but there seemed to be the usual amount of ex­hibits. The ven­dors stalls were in the curl­ing rink this year, the Art Pho­tog­ra­phy ex­hibit was fea­tured in St. Pa­trick’s His­toric Church . It was nice to see the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Hut­terite stu­dents in the school dis­plays, in which they did re­ally well. The or­ga­niz­ers of the Fair had the chil­dren in mind and pro­vided fun and in­ter­est­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing pony rides and a bouncy cas­tle. Good job as usual from the hard work- ing Ag. So­ci­ety and helpers.

I spent a few days over Thanks­giv­ing in Edmonton with fam­ily and I am glad we don’t have the snow they have fur­ther north. Our snow is nearly gone, with a few dry days the farm­ers will get to fin­ish the har­vest and I may even get my yard­work done.

On Tues­day, Oc­to­ber 25 there is a free flu clinic at the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, spon­sored by Wal­mart Phar­macy.
