Hello Hand Hills…..the weath­er­man was right about it warm­ing up. To­day we are sit­ting at +4. What lit­tle snow we do have is sure to be gone with this chi­nook. Go out and en­joy this as I am sure that it will be back to win­ter just as fast! Hello to all our friends and neigh­bors snow birding in the States. Come back, you are miss­ing a great Al­berta chi­nook!

Some friends and neigh­bors have been hol­i­day­ing just to get away from the cold win­ter weather. The Owen Fran­cis fam­ily and the Rod Moench fam­ily spent time to­gether in Mex­ico. Richard and Char­lotte Pre­ston, Char­lene Pre­ston, Cody, Jo­lene, Chance and Colby Scott along with Barb Burge­meis­ter spent Christ­mas in Hawaii. Hope all en­joyed their get­away .

The An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing of the Club has been changed to Fe­bru­ary 2 at 7 p.m. This was to al­low peo­ple to at­tend the TB In­for­ma­tion Sem­i­nar that is be­ing held in Hanna on the orig­i­nal date of Jan­uary 26. Please plan to at­tend both of th­ese as they are im­por­tant.

It is time to get back to work at the Club Renos and a work bee has been set for this Fri­day, Jan­uary 20 at 1 p.m. We are go­ing to try a cou­ple of dif­fer­ent times and days to see what works. The plan is to tear out the old kitchen, stain and var­nish the waintscot­ing (boards) and put th­ese up around the in­side of the en­try and the new ad­di­tion, along with other things. Hope that you can come and lend us a hand.

Let’s get ‘er done!

We need vol­un­teers to work the casino in Red Deer on March 30 and 31. If you can help please phone Day ASAP as he has to get the forms sent in. His num­ber is 403 854 0976.

If you are driv­ing down 1st Av­enue West in Hanna and see a house with per­fectly cleared side­walk, you are look­ing at the Bert Radke house! At al­most 90 years of age Bert can be seen out­side, no mat­ter the win­ter weather, clear­ing her walks. They are man­i­cured to per­fec­tion. If she can do it you can too! Bert you are an in­spi­ra­tion to all of us younger gen­er­a­tion to go get the job done. All year round Bert’s yard is a mas­ter­piece! Bert can be seen walk­ing around town to get the mail or her gro­ceries. Maybe all that fresh air and yard work is what is keep­ing her so young! Hello BERT from the Hills!

Sun­day proved again how pop­u­lar the Delia Arena is. Af­ter a cou­ple of hockey games, there was pub­lic skat­ing and three lit­tle girls’ chose this as the place to have their birth­day party. The place was a bee­hive of fam­ily fun! Our grand­daugh­ter El­lie was one of the birth­day girls as was Kylie Larsen and Miss Mey­ers (sorry I didn’t get her name as there was way too much go­ing on)! What a great way to bring a com­mu­nity to­gether.

Till next week…do like Bert! Get out­side, shovel that walk, walk to the post of­fice, go skat­ing (in Delia of course) but do what­ever it takes to get out!
