The sym­pa­thy of the com­mu­nity to Lyle and Diana Rowe on the pass­ing of Lyle’s fa­ther, John Rowe at the age of 92 years. Fu­neral ser­vices were held at the Mun­son Hall on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 14. Another old timer gone and sadly missed.

The Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­ter has been the scene of some fam­ily events. On the week­end of Oc­to­ber 15 the fam­ily of Frank and Eu­nice Wil­son gath­ered to cel­e­brate the 60th wed­ding an­niver­sary of Frank and Eu­nice. What a special oc­ca­sion and our best wishes to them. This last week­end, Oc­to­ber 22, the fam­ily of Doris Wade gath­ered at the com­mu­nity Cen­ter to en­joy vis­it­ing and quilt­ing. What a great way to get to­gether and share some qual­ity time and learn a fam­ily craft.

There is no short­age of places this month where one can eat out and help worth­while com­mu­nity or char­i­ta­ble causes. Back on Oc­to­ber 15 Row­ley held their Steak and Lob­ster Night. On Oc­to­ber 20 Mun­son Com­mu­nity held a Tur­key sup­per in their new hall. On Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 22 Grace Lutheran Church held a Pig Roast for Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity in Drumheller with a great re­sponse from the com­mu­nity. The an­nual Hand Hills Tur­key Sup­per on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 23 was ex­cep­tional as usual and let us get a look at the nearly fin­ished new kitchen. In the com­ing weeks there is a Fall Sup­per in Mor­rin on Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 26 and in Rum­sey on Novem­ber 5. This com­ing Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 29, the Knox United Church is hold­ing a fundraiser bar­be­cue beef sup­per at the Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. Wow! You have your choice of very fine din­ing.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Liam McDougald who will be pre­sented with the sil­ver Duke of Ed­in­burgh Award on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 28. Liam has been in­volved in ath­letic, vol­un­teer and ad­ven­ture journeys to achieve this award. He has been a mem­ber of foot­ball and hockey teams and nine years a mem­ber of the Delia 4H Beef Club. In vol­un­teer ac­tiv­i­ties he has helped men­tor young play­ers of the Ti­tans Foot­ball team, taken part in Delia Com­mu­nity clean up, Drumheller Sal­va­tion Army food drives, 4H re­cy­cling pro­grams, and school per­form­ing arts. His ad­ven­ture journeys have taken Liam on the Cy­cle to Banff led by Two Wheel View and the Drumheller RCMP Com­mu­nity Youth Chal­lenge. Liam has also gone on two 4H ex­change trips, sev­eral ed­u­ca­tional trips with school and hockey. He has gone on a Fine Arts trip to New York City and vis­ited four Euro­pean coun­tries with his hockey team. He is also look­ing for­ward to go­ing to Vimy Ridge with DVSS in 2017 for the 100th An­niver­sary Cer­e­mony. Well done Liam and all the best wishes in your fu­ture.
