Greet­ings & Sa­lu­ta­tions! Here’s what’s new this week in the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity…

Con­do­lences to the fam­ily of Lil­lian Castella. She passed away Feb 26, 2017. A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held at the Stan­dard Com­mu­nity Hall on April 24 at 3 pm. There is a col­lec­tion box at the Stan­dard Co-op in her mem­ory with do­na­tions go­ing to sup­port the Mem­ory Lane project.

Do you ever won­der why they call it a tur­key in bowl­ing? One leg­end says it be­gan as a thanks­giv­ing tra­di­tion in the 1800s. The first per­son who bowled three strikes in a row dur­ing the week of Thanks­giv­ing (or Christ­mas, de­pend­ing on who you ask) would get a live tur­key to take home for din­ner. Dar­ren Larsen has had an­other suc­cess­ful year bowl­ing in the an­nual BowlaRama on March 18. He would like to send out his many thanks to all who spon­sored him. Way to go Dar­ren!

The Wheat­land Cross­ing School grad class of 2017 is hold­ing a bot­tle drive fundraiser. Any amount you can give would be greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. If you have bot­tles, let them know and they will come by and pick them up Sun­day, April 2.

Have you heard? A new group has popped up in the com­mu­nity! The Stan­dard Walk & Run Club is here for you. They meet at the Stan­dard School Track, Sun­day morn­ings at 8:30 am. Is fit­ness a goal for you “in the long run?” You might be a vet­eran run­ner, a medal junkie, or just some­one who’d like to join others for mo­ti­va­tion, ca­ma­raderie, and fun. It is open to all ages, so fit­ness can “run in your fam­ily!” Ques­tions you may be ask­ing your­self, can I start at a walk? Ab­so­lutely. Can I join any­time? Yes! Choose your own train­ing sched­ule for the week and your pace and goal for the day. A free Learn2Run 5k 10-week pro­gram sched­ule will be avail­able for any­one in­ter­ested, and will fin­ish in time for the sum­mer race sea­son. Note: To have time to com­plete the Learn2Run train­ing, you will need to start on March 26 or April 2. Check out the club’s Fb page for more info.

The an­nual Se­niors St. Pa­trick’s Day Lun­cheon hosted by the Stan­dard Lionettes was held on, Fri­day, March 17 and saw an en­joy­able af­ter­noon with good friends and good food. The se­nior’s raised $1315.00 through a live auc­tion and do­na­tions with the pro­ceeds go­ing to the Pal­lia­tive Care Cen­ter. Un­til next year, may your trou­bles be less, and your bless­ings be more and noth­ing but hap­pi­ness come through your door!

A note from the Vil­lage of Stan­dard. In re­gards to the speed­ing and stunt­ing hap­pen­ing in and around the Vil­lage, law en­force­ment has been out and tick­ets have been is­sued, how­ever rac­ing and stunt­ing con­tin­ues to be a ma­jor safety con­cern. The Vil­lage has re­quested zero tol­er­ance for any­one caught speed­ing, rac­ing, and stunt­ing. En­force­ment will be out fre­quently and this kind of ac­tiv­ity will not be tol­er­ated. If you see any­one driv­ing reck­lessly, or ex­ces­sively speed­ing, please note a de­scrip­tion of the ve­hi­cle and driver, and a li­cense plate num­ber. If you can take pictures or a video that would be even bet­ter. Con­tact the RCMP im­me­di­ately! Tick­ets can be is­sued if wit­nesses are will­ing to write and sign a state­ment and pro­vide a de­scrip­tion of the ve­hi­cle. By work­ing to­gether as a com­mu­nity, we can put a stop to this kind of dan­ger­ous be­hav­ior and keep our com­mu­nity safe!

A joy­ful re­minder to join Clif­ford San­den on Sun­day April 9 as he cel­e­brates his 100th birth­day! The fes­tiv­i­ties will be held at the Trav­elodge in Strath­more from 2 – 4 pm. Spread the word ev­ery­one is wel­come!

Don’t for­get, Fri­day, March 31, from 5- 7 pm is the an­nual Lion’s Steak Fry fundraiser at the com­mu­nity hall. See you there! This is Adreena re­port­ing for the Vil­lage of Stan­dard. Please sub­mit newz items to the stan­dard­newz@gmail.com, phone 403-644-3995 or stop in at the li­brary. Have a great week friends!!!
