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.

Two teams from the En­di­ang floor curl­ing club were in Botha to curl at a tour­na­ment on Novem­ber 10. The floor curlers from Delia who went were Carol and Dave Sis­ley, Joan Morrison and Eva Nielsen. We didn’t win but it was a good game and a fun time. Thanks, Botha, for the great hos­pi­tal­ity.
