Well, the glimpses of sun­shine are few and far be­tween but the farm­ers con­tinue to hold out hope for the chance to con­tinue har­vest­ing off the bounty of grain that is still in the fields. I hope they suc­ceed.

The His­tory Book Foun­da­tion has gen­er­ously do­nated a 2016 edi­tion and the 1982 edi­tion of the his­tory books to the curl­ing rink to be kept up­stairs in the lounge area. They will be free to use and en­joy by all who visit up­stairs. If you want a copy of your own, they are avail­able through the His­tory Book Foun­da­tion mem­bers and at the li­brary. 1982 edi­tion is also avail­able.

My condolences to the God­dard fam­ily with the re­cent pass­ing of Ernie’s brother, Rus­sel God­dard. He would have celebrated his 86th birthday on Oc­to­ber 31. There is no date set for a memo­rial ser­vice as of yet, the fam­ily is con­sid­er­ing wait­ing un­til spring.

Sandy McNaughton stop­ping in to let me know that she is look­ing at hand­ing over the reins of or­ga­niz­ing the Christ­mas Party/So­cial that is held an­nu­ally on the third Sun­day of De­cem­ber. This event has been a main­stay of our com­mu­nity ever since the school closed and gives the com­mu­nity a chance to get to­gether, sing some Christ­mas car­ols and share some Christ­mas good­ies; and, of course, for the lit­tle ones to meet Santa and have a lit­tle fun with him be­fore he has to re­turn to the North Pole to con­tinue on his most im­por­tant work. She is hop­ing that some­one would be in­ter­ested in tak­ing over this project as Santa has a very tight sched­ule in De­cem­ber so she would have to book him early in or­der to en­sure that he will be free that day. Please give Sandy a call if you are in­ter­ested.

Fran McCall-Oso­hon passed away on Septem­ber 26 after a brief strug­gle with can­cer. She was 70 years old. She grew up in the Rum­sey area with her par­ents, He­len and Elmer McCall, broth­ers Myles and Tom, who died at the age of 60 from the same dread­ful disease, and her sis­ter Su­san. She leaves to mourn her hus­band Richard (Dick) and 2 daugh­ters, Michelle and Leann. They lived at Rim­bey through­out their mar­ried life.

St. Mary’s Lodge’s birthday party for the month of Oc­to­ber was able to cel­e­brate four birth­days; in the lodge, Ruth Gor­don celebrated her special day; in ex­tended care – Paul Geli­nas, Muriel Stephen­son and Alice Rac­zok celebrated theirs. I would like to ex­tend a thank you to the Oc­to­ber host, Lois Kiemele. Elaine Weisse will be the Novem­ber host. Thank you to all the peo­ple who or­ga­nize and go over ev­ery month.

I would also like to ex­press my sym­pa­thies to the McNaughton fam­i­lies with the pass­ing of Dariel’s Mother, Betty Peters. She en­joyed a long, ac­tive life as a mem­ber of the Del­burne com­mu­nity then 5 years ago she moved to Red Deer to the Mich­ener se­niors’ lodge where she im­me­di­ately felt at home and joined in the fun things there. She passed away on Au­gust 21 in her home in the Lodge as were her wishes at the age of 91 years.

And, since it is fall, and the geese are heavy in the fields as they travel down south, I thought you might en­joy this joke: Q. Why did the scare­crow get a pro­mo­tion? A: Cause he was out­stand­ing in his field. Have a great week, ev­ery­one.
