Delia Senior News
A friend and I were on the bus to Moose Jaw last week to the Casino (didn’t come back rich) and on the way home we stopped in Brooks to visit a former Delia resident, Bobbi Richter. Bobbi has moved into a beautiful retirement complex in Brooks and is recovering from a broken leg at present, but doing very well. She misses her home although she is enjoying her new surroundings. Bobbi wanted to send a warm greeting to friends in Delia who remember her. Bobbi and her husband, Frank, were very active in the Senior Centre and in the Delia Historical Society when they lived in Delia.
