Delia Senior News
We have had a strange week of weather in Delia of snow, rain, fog, and finally warmth and sunshine. My family have spent the past week with me on their way home to B.C, after a long trip through South America, the Amazon and the Galapogos. They are so lucky to have this type of experience- and what an adventure for the children, something we could never dream of at their age. It was so great to spend some time with them, family are the best!
An open house was held at the Delia Community Centre on Sunday afternoon to celebrate the 90th birthday of Irene Diemart. A large crowd of friends and relatives were present to help mark this special occasion, including all of Irene’s children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We all wish you many more wonderful birthdays, Irene.
Remember the breakfast buffet sponsored by the Delia Elks on Sunday morning, April 9, from nine to noon. It’s coming up fast so mark it on your calendar so you won’t forget. Always a great breakfast and a good start to your Sunday.
Calling all amateur painters –: Come and connect or reconnect with fellow painters and enjoy a time of fun and conversation while exploring your artistic talents. You are invited to attend an informal painting experience at the Delia Drop In Centre on Wednesday, March 29, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. If there is enough interest this could become a weekly event. Delia is pleased to have a new resident, who we will refer to as Miss Bobbi, for this event. Miss Bobbi has graciously volunteered to share her expertise with us. She is a talented commissioned artist who has completed numerous projects in Calgary. She specializes in water and oil paints but will gladly assist those who choose to work with acrylics. Miss Bobbi will not be teaching a formal class but will be present to assist with techniques and questions. All you need to bring is your own canvas, brushes, paints and imagination. A small donation toward the Drop In Centre would be appreciated. For more information please call 403 364 2149.
Card night at the Delia Drop In Centre on March 30 – the last Thursday of each month. Come to play Crib or whatever card game you wish. Prizes and refreshments await. Happy birthday to Betty Gibson on the 29th of March, to Clare Carson on April 1, to Angie Moe and Kathy Petony on the 3rd of April and a shout out to Don and Diana Brewitt who celebrate another year of wedded bliss on the 3rd, so time to break out the bubbly again, Don.
