Hello Hand Hills…This weather pat­tern is start­ing to scare me! Is this win­ter??? The amount of fog we have been get­ting is telling me that win­ter could bring lots of snow. The old say­ing…it is what it is…is the only thing we know.

Lots of peo­ple at­tended the Delia Fall Fair be­cause of this nasty, wet weather so there is some­thing good out of some­thing bad. Delia, you did a great job! From the good food, the great mu­sic, the dis­plays and all the great peo­ple that were there to visit with. Hats off to you Delia!

Hearts are sad here in the Hills as we had to say good­bye to two great guys this past cou­ple of weeks.

Our Con­do­lences to Merna Stevens, Dal­las Stevens and their fam­i­lies on the pass­ing of their hus­band, fa­ther, grand- fa­ther, great grand­fa­ther, Don Stevens. Don and Merna lived on the Don Mam­mel Place where they ranched. R.I.P Don!

Our thoughts and prayers are with Shel­ley Bixby and her fam­ily as they come to terms with the un­timely pass­ing of Bud Bixby. Who of us in the Hills did not grow up on the Bixby’s’ mu­sic? The love of mu­sic that Bud had is a tal­ent that is hard to find. Watch­ing Bud and Shel­ley sing one could see the love be­tween them and the love of their mu­sic! Thanks for all the mem­o­ries and the great mu­sic Bud. R.I. P. and we know that you are still play­ing way up yon­der.

The Hand Hills con­grat­u­lates the Mun­son Com­mu­nity on the open­ing of their new com­mu­nity hall. All the work has come to­gether and will be a legacy for years to come.

One never knows who they will see on a jaunt away from the Ranch! Five of us left Tues­day for a tour of the tun­nels in Moose Jaw. Driv­ing down the main street of the city I saw Mil­dred Warner and Geral­dine Grif­fith. Turns out they were on the De­jong Tour Bus. Hope that they en­joyed their visit to the city as much as I did. The tun­nels were worth the trip and made me re­al­ize just how much we dis­crim­i­nated against the Chi­nese. We stayed at a bed and break­fast and we would highly rec­om­mend it to any­one.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Frank and Eu­nice Wil­son on the cel­e­bra­tion of 60 Years of mar­riage. They hosted a fam­ily gath­er­ing at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­tre. That is a long, long time! Hand Hills wishes you many, many more!

Help is needed for the Tur­key Sup­per that is this Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 23. Start­ing on Fri­day at 1 we will be clean­ing the Hall, cook­ing the fruit pies and cook­ing the cream pies fill­ing and shells (for you ladies that love to make pies!), and if enough of you show up we can start on the veg­gies.

Satur­day at 9 we will be cook­ing the cream pies, prep­ping all the tur­keys, peel­ing veg­gies, decorating plus many other things. Please plan to vol­un­teer! We do a lot but have a lot of fun do­ing it!

Get your Hal­loween cos­tumes ready! The club is spon­sor­ing a Hal­loween Pizza Night on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 28. Bring the kids down for games, food and don’t for­get to bring your candy. Ev­ery­one from the com­mu­nity is in­vited down to see the lit­tle ghosts and gob­lins and feast on some of Day and Bills’ home­made pizza. See you there!

Till next week…save some room on your cal­en­dar for the Tur­key Sup­per and mark Novem­ber 19 as the Ranch­ers’ Ball!
