Delia Senior News
There is heavy fog in Delia again this morning, it is said that fog foretells rain in three months. If the old stories are true we will be getting a lot of moisture in February and March – rain or snow – rain would be better.
Last Thursday was pot luck time at the Delia Drop In Centre, lots of good food and some exciting new recipes to try. The third Thursday is also movie night at the Drop In, come and enjoy a good movie with us. You may even get to pick the movie you want to see. The last Thursday of the month will be card night, starting at 7 p.m. Remember that coffee is served every Tuesday and Thursday morning starting at 9 a.m. until the last one out turns out the lights. Come have coffee and meet your neighbours. Coffee is often followed by a good card game, the pool tables are often in use too. It’s too cold for yard work now so come and enjoy a coffee and a visit.
The date for the Christmas party at the Drop In Centre has been set for Thursday, December 15, at noon. Mark it on your calendar. Come for turkey and all the trimmings, maybe Santa will show up if everybody’s been good.
Darryl Trefz, Josh Remfert and Scott Stern celebrated the last nice days of late fall by canoeing down the North Saskatchewan to Rocky Mountain House and camping along the way. Good thing they got to enjoy the last of our good weather.
Most of the farmers were finally able to get the crop off after a disappointing October. So much of farming depends on the weather, it’s a game of chance. I think every farmer has to be a bit of a gambler.
The Delia Royal Purple had their last meeting on Thursday, November 17, now they will join the Elks at their meetings. The Elks and Royal Purple are great supporters of the community. So many of the community organizations depend on the support they get from the Elks and could not exist without that support. The money raised at the Elks bingo and pancake breakfast goes back into the community; and even into neighbouring communities to help with projects. Bingo is held at the Community Centre every Tuesday night, starting at 8 p.m., doors open at 7. The Pancake Breakfast takes place at the Community Centre the second Sunday of every month.
