Hello Hand Hills….Maybe the weather will straighten out for the farm­ers, maybe the calf prices will sta­bi­lize for the ranch­ers and maybe we can get on with real life af­ter the Amer­i­can Elec­tion. for all of the above.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Don and Bev Hall, of Delia, who cel­e­brated their 50th Wed­ding an­niver­sary re­cently. We are so for­tune to have this cou­ple vol­un­teer at the Hand Hills Stam­pede. They put in count­less hours and just like be­ing mar­ried they know that is what is needed to suc­ceed. Many more are wished to the Halls’ from the Hills! Let’s hope

It has been over a week but just the thought of the Turkey Supper brings a sense of pride. Where else can boost of 62 years straight of serv­ing a meal that is top­notch, that has more vol­un­teers than needed and pleases so many peo­ple? This year 675 peo­ple were served in 4 hours, with most of those in a short 2 ½ hour span. Vol­un­teers peeled 550 pounds of spuds, 250 pounds of car­rots, the same of turnips plus all the cab­bage and all the stuff­ing onions and cel­ery. 50 tur­keys were stuffed and all cooked at the Club this year. Only at Hand Hills can you get a se­lec­tion of 8 kinds of pies! The new kitchen worked just great and Day Len­festy and Bill Poulsen­had a lot to do with that. They worked count­less hours set­ting it up just right. I think most pride comes from see­ing our young vol­un­teers serv­ing the pies. Lena and Ciana Rosin, Ta­tum and El­lie Vre­de­goor, Ri­ata Gam­mie, Skyler Rosin and Brooke Gal­ster are the next gen­er­a­tion in the Hills and at the ages of 5-11 they are learn­ing young and do­ing an awe­some job. Par­ents you should be so proud be­cause Hand Hills is so for­tu­nate to have your chil­dren on board. On top of all of this the Club is making a $2,250.00 dona­tion split be­tween the Hanna Food Bank, the Drumheller Food Bank and the Veter­ans’ Food Bank. Just another source of Com­mu­nity Pride and Thankyou to all who at­tended who make it pos­si­ble!

Just five days later and the cooks were at it again at the Club. 25 Home­made Piz­zas were served to 60 peo­ple at the Hal­loween Party. There were 30 or more (hard to count as they just love to run and play at the Club) kids dressed up in ev­ery­thing imag­in­able. The Club was dec­o­rated and a few games and crafts were set up but like I said the kids just wanted to run free. Thanks to the great cooks in the kitchen for making all the dif­fer­ent piz­zas. I heard that a few kinds didn’t make it out of the kitchen but that was the cooks’ re- wards. (I al­ways say if you can’t eat the cookie dough, don’t make cook­ies!) Thanks to Day and Bill for the Pizza Party idea and to Jenny Fin­ni­more, Natasha Rosin and Melissa Rosin for putting this Hal­loween Party to­gether. Just another way that the Club gives back to the Com­mu­nity.

Get your friends to­gether and re­serve a Ta­ble at the Ranch­ers Ball. Tick­ets are on Sale Now. Phone Mar­i­lyn at 404 665-2473.

Till Next Week….Re­mem­ber to buy your Poppy!
