We are so sorry to hear that a for­mer Delia res­i­dent, Ge­orge Humphrey, has passed away in Olds. Ser­vices for Ge­orge will be held on Thurs­day, March 2, at the Olds Ever­green Cen­tre, at 6237 52 Street in Olds. Ge­orge and Elsie lived in Delia un­til 1996, when they re­tired to Drumheller, and later to Olds. Ge­orge, with his wife, Elsie, was in­volved in many Delia or­ga­ni­za­tions, Ge­orge also served on the Delia Vil­lage Coun­cil at one time. Our deep­est sym­pa­thies to his wife, Elsie and to all his fam­ily and many friends. Ge­orge will be sadly missed.

The Fe­bru­ary Birth­day party, held at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 15, was at­tended by eleven mem­bers and friends hav­ing birth­days in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. Hostesses Peggy An­der­son and Pat Hoover had dec­o­rated the hall in a lovely valen­tine theme for the oc­ca­sion. Card bingo was en­joyed by the guests, the hostesses served a yummy cake for lunch. The lucky win­ner of the door prize was Rick Fair, who was able to take home some choco­lates plus a pink teddy bear!

Spring is on the way! The much ma­ligned star­lings are back! Not the most pop­u­lar bird, but they are one of the first signs of Spring – and they are early this year! Other signs of spring – the an­i­mals –horses, dogs and cats, are shed­ding their win­ter coats al­ready. Any day now, the first robin will ap­pear-watch for it!

Streets are still very slip­pery around our Vil­lage, new snow on top of the ice is haz­ardous. Please be care­ful, watch your step if you are walk­ing, slow down if you drive.

Mark your cal­en­dars for the Elks pan­cake buf­fet on Sun­day morn­ing, March 12 from 9 to noon. Al­ways a Sun­day morn­ing treat. Take the cook out for break­fast, there may be ben­e­fits to reap! Re­mem­ber Bingo ev­ery Tues­day night at the Com­mu­nity Cen­tre. Bingo starts at 8, doors open at 7. You could be the next big win­ner, those jack­pots keep edg­ing up ev­ery week. If you aren’t there, you can’t win!

Some mem­bers of the En­di­ang Floor Curl­ing Club at­tended a floor curl­ing tour­na­ment in Halkirk on Thurs­day. Curlers from Delia who par­tic­i­pated in the tour­na­ment were Carol and Dave Sis­ley and Joan Mor­ri­son.

We had a wee bit of ex­cite­ment in Delia last week when the fire trucks were called out and sped down High­way 851. It turned out to be an old aban­doned house on fire, luck­ily no one lived there, also luck­ily it is still win­ter and a lot of snow at the time, so there was no dan­ger of a grass fire. It was a land­mark on the way to town and a lot of trav­ellers will miss see­ing it, also no doubt it held a lot of happy me­mories for some­one, of a time now past. Such a shame, cause of the fire is un­known. Some­one has posted a fan­tas­tic video of the fire on Face­book, if you have a chance, do view it.

Leapfrog and Tad­pole Preschool Story Time at the li­brary on Tues­day, Fe­bru­ary 28 from 11 a.m to 12 p.m. Preschool story time cel­e­brates the joys of lan­guage and story through the use of music, pup­pets, pic­ture books, sto­ry­telling and more! A great op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore lit­er­acy with your preschooler. There are so many won­der­ful op­por­tu­ni­ties for small chil­dren to play and learn, wish we had some­thing sim­i­lar when my kids were at the kinder­garten stage. Hope lots of par­ents take ad­van­tage of th­ese op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Happy Birth­day to Dar­ryl Rau­gust on the 24th of Fe­bru­ary, and to Tyler An­der­sen on the 5th of March. Have a per­fect spe­cial day!
