Hello Hand Hills….The grass is grow­ing, the trees are bud­ding out, the cro­cuses are out and go­phers are every­where. Spring is here. Hop­ing for those April Show­ers that are fore­cast. But along with this comes yard work and field work. Get out and en­joy

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Cam and Mon­ica Nel­ner on be­com­ing first time par­ents to a beau­ti­ful lit­tle girl, Ade­lyn Paige, who was born on March 26. En­joy­ing this spe­cial lit­tle bun­dle is Grandma Lyla and Grandpa Larry. I am sure that Aun­tie Tracy has cud­dled this lit­tle one more than once! Con­grat­u­la­tions to All!

There is a 90 Birth­day Party for Bert Radke as she turns this huge mile­stone. The Fam­ily is planning a Drop in Coffee Party for her on April 23 from 1-4 at the Hanna Se­nior’s Cir­cle. Bert would love to see all of her Hand Hills Friends and Neigh­bors and it would be a great chance to catch up with her fam­ily. See you there.

It must be Spring as the Cal­gary Stam­pede held their An­nual Chuck­wagon Tarp Sale. Colt will be go­ing to the Stam­pede with the High River Au­to­plex and RV Tarp. He has been as­so­ci­ated with Doug, from High River, for many years. Go Colt Go! I am sure that Spring Train­ing has started at the Cos­grave Ranch.

It is ready! You can buy yours now! It is the photo book that was made of the 100th Stam­pede. Ward Rosin, who has been com­ing to the Stam­pede for years and has deep ties to the Hills and his friend Mark Reier­son, at­tend­ing his first ever rodeo, came to the 100th Stam­pede with the sole in­ten­tion of tak­ing pho­tos for three days and then com­pil­ing them into a book. Task com­pleted! Their book Between Dust and Sky is printed and ready for sale. Go to their web­site www.rosin.ca and or­der yours! If you do they will de­liver it to the Stam­pede for you. An­other piece of Hand Hills His­tory! Thanks Ward and Mark!

Con­do­lences to Hugh McDon­ald and Fam­ily on the pass­ing of his sis­ter Joyce Hoffman, of Oyen. I at­tended the funeral and one of Hugh’s nieces’, Bev Wa­ters, and I went to school to­gether. It was great to see the whole fam­ily there to pay trib­ute to this great lady. Hugh was there with his daugh­ter and son. Nice to see you neigh­bor! The mu­si­cal tal­ent in the fam­ily was a real nice fea­ture at the funeral. Joyce would have been tap­ping her toes! Sheila Fee, who is also one of Hugh’s sis­ters, told me that she and her hus­band lived in Craigmyle for many years. She­lia wanted to say Hi to all of her former friends and neigh­bors. It is a small world. It gets even smaller when Bev and Trevor said that their Son Bren­dan has played at the Stam­pede Cabarets with Drew Gre­gory. I heard Bren­dan sing and play the guitar at the funeral and this guy has tal­ent. Look me up if you ever come back to the Hills Bren­dan!

The Club has new floor­ing in the kitchen and the new ad­di­tion. Tiles are be­ing put on the walls of the kitchen, so things are hap­pen­ing. If you can help, even for a cou­ple of hours, please phone. We re­ally want to wrap things up.

Stam­pede is com­ing fast so mark it on your cal­en­dar, June 2, 3 and 4. Volunteers are al­ways needed!

Till next week….Get out and en­joy the good old sun­shine!
