Delia res­i­dents who lived here a few years ago will re­mem­ber Mar­garet and Dave Kin­niburgh. Sadly, we have learned that Mar­garet passed away on Jan­uary 13 in Leth­bridge. Ser­vices for Mar­garet were held at the Air­drie United Church on Wednesday, Jan­uary 18. Mar­garet was pre­de­ceased by her husband, “Pas­tor Dave” some years ago. They were won­der­ful peo­ple and dearly missed when they left Delia sev­eral years ago. Con­do­lences to Mar­garet’s fam­ily and many dear friends.

Sin­cere sym­pa­thy of the com­mu­nity also goes out to Nor­lene Hud­geon and fam­ily on the loss of her brother, Man­ley Thom­son.

A ge­neal­ogy work­shop in­structed by Jeany Til­bert at the Delia Li­brary on Satur­day was very in­for­ma­tive, it taught me a lot about re­search­ing in­for­ma­tion, and prob­a­bly saved me from mak­ing sev­eral time con­sum­ing mis­takes. Another work­shop is prob­a­bly in the plan­ning for the fu­ture, watch this col­umn for more in­for­ma­tion.

The Book Bites Read­ing Club will meet at the li­brary from 6:30 to 7:30 Wednesday evening, Jan­uary 25.

Some days you’re the dog, and some days you’re the hy­drant.
