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.
