Well the Hand Hills supper is all over and we’re all prob­a­bly two pounds heav­ier – but wasn’t it de­li­cious!

Tues­day saw a group of men here at the cen­ter hav­ing a very loud and fun snooker game. If you like to play why don’t you come and join them.

The usual card play­ers were here on Mon­day and Tues­day, and then bingo on Wed­nes­day. We usu­ally have a good group to play bingo. Our thanks to all the DARTS peo­ple who come to play. They re­ally en­joy it and we ap­pre­ci­ate them sup­port­ing our cen­ter.

On Thurs­day morn­ing we hosted two big busses full of walk­ers from Cal­gary – about 90 peo­ple in all. They come and have muffins and cof­fee be­fore go­ing out on their walks. Also, at the same time the choir was prac­tic­ing and, I guess, en­ter­tain­ing them. Need­less to say we had a full house.

In the af­ter­noon we also played Scrabble – and speak­ing of Scrabble did I ever have some ex­cite­ment. My next turn I had a word that counted 48 at which time I was able to lay down all seven of my let- ters – which gave me 50 more points for a to­tal of 98 points. That will prob­a­bly never hap­pen to me again – un­be­liev­able! There was lots of high fiv­ing for a few min­utes!

The Bridge play­ers were in on Thurs­day evening and the win­ning scores are as fol­lows:

1st – Beryl Sig­fusson and He­len Peers – 4300

2nd – Jen­nie Demille and Don Robert­son – 3920

3rd – Mary and Bill Burke – 3380

Sev­eral from the cen­ter en­joyed their trip to Cal­gary on Fri­day to at­tend the Phil­har­monic. Thanks to the Drumheller Travel Club.
