Hand Hills Grapevine

Hello Hand Hills…It is feel­ing a lot like Spring these last few days but we should not get used to it be­cause we know how Mother Na­ture works. But Good­bye Jan­uary, bring on Fe­bru­ary!

Where was this re­porter in Oc­to­ber? How did I not hear? Why didn’t some­one phone? Kyle Rosin and Tammy McMil­lian had a Baby Girl, Zoey Alexan­dra, who was born on Oc­to­ber 6. Be­lated Con­grat­u­la­tions to Kyle and Tammy and big sis­ter Erica, Jaycee and Brother Kirk. Con­grat­u­la­tions to Grandpa and Grandma Wes and Vivian, Al­lis­ter and Roxie McMil­lan. I am sure that the four months of cud­dles that ev­ery­one has had are so pre­cious. Give her a hug from the Hills!

An­other bun­dle of Joy has en­tered the world that is sure to have Eleanor Rosin East bound and down. Macken­zie Irene Coven­try was born to Char­lene and Jim just last week. Big Brother Jaxon has a new baby sis­ter. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Tyler and Dez­erae Wal­ton who were mar­ried on Jan­uary 21, in Drumheller. The Wal­tons have built a new house about 4 miles north of Homestead Coulee. Ron and Kim must be so happy to have Tyler and his wife back close to home.

The An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing of the Hand Hills Club is this Thurs­day at 7:00 p.m. Please plan to at­tend.

There will be an­other Work Bee on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 3 at 1:00. Help is al­ways needed.

If you are a com­puter geek, then our new ad­ver­tis­ing ideas will be just for you. In ad­di­tion to ad­ver­tis­ing in the Drumheller Mail, we are also ad­ver­tis­ing on their web­site at www. drumheller­mail.com. Just look for the Buck­ing Bronc, click on it and it will take you to our Web­site. In­for­ma­tion is con­stantly be­ing up­dated on the Web so bear with us but en­joy this new venue to stay in­formed.

We all play for Canada! These last cou­ple of weeks has been a marathon of hockey for this house­hold and many other for sure. It makes life so good. Watch­ing the grand­kids play hockey is a great pas­time and we are not alone in this. It just brings fam­i­lies to­gether in such a way that is in­dica­tive of our Cana­dian Her­itage. My Mum, who is al­most 86, got to en­joy watch­ing two of her great grand­chil­dren play hockey in Hanna last week and at the same time had a visit with other fam­ily mem­bers. I know that there are lots of grand­par­ents out there who are en­joy­ing the hockey life so send me your sto­ries. We all watched our sons and daugh­ters play and now it is the next gen­er­a­tion that is fill­ing the spot­light. Provin­cials and league play­offs are gear­ing up so stayed tuned and send me your Hockey News! I am sure that many will agree that all of the Mi­nor Hockey Games that were played this past week­end in Hanna and area were so far above the All Star Game Week­end for en­ter­tain­ment value and much more wor­thy of this re­porter’s time. Go Teams Go!

Thanks to all who signed up for the Casino at the end of March. A Spe­cial Men­tion to Char­lotte and Richard Pre­ston on their ini­tia­tive to get a crew of their own to work the late count room shift. This made Day Len­festys’ re­cruit­ing that much eas­ier. Like I have said quite a few times, we have the BEST vol­un­teers. Thank –you! Till next week… Re­mem­ber to plan a spe­cial treat for your Valen­tine! Fe­bru­ary 11 at the Hills would be a good choice.
