Hand Hills Grapevine
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.
