With the all respect due to a fine lady, a memorial service for Erna Boe took place at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church at Dalum last Saturday. Her daughter-in-law, Gaye Boe, gave a lovely tribute to Erna and Pastor Dan commented on the remarkable social and technological changes which members of her generation had witnessed in the course of the last century. Erna’s life gave evidence to the truth that the living history which is a part of our elders is also the thread which ties together family and tradition. Although most of her contemporaries have already passed on, the church was well filled with past and present members of the Dalum community and others who have been touched by her presence over the past 97 years. Memorial donations in her honour may be made to the Bethlehem Lutheran Church, Box 44, Drumheller, Alberta, T0J 0Y0. Rita Pallesen is also available to accept donations.
A reminder to members of the Bethlehem Lutheran Church congregation that the Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Sunday, January 22. The meeting will be held following the Sunday service and Potluck lunch.
A change in scheduling for the nightgown project sewing bee now has the event slated for Saturday, January 14. The pieces have been cut and will be assembled in the Dalum church basement when work will begin at about 9:00 in the morning.
The January 15 deadline for submitting Co-op till tapes is rapidly approaching and Rita Pallesen asks that anyone who has been saving them for the Friendship Club please get them to her as soon as possible.
Birthday greetings this week go to Stella Jackson who is celebrating her 90th with a new hip as well as to Pauline Lund, Gaye Boe, and Cheryl Blasetti. Best wishes to all and special get well wishes to Stella.
