Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

Win­ter is re­fus­ing to leave us this year it seems. We had a taste of Spring and now Mother Na­ture is laugh­ing at all of us who put away the win­ter gear and at­tempted to en­joy the warmer, brighter days and evenings. Just think, the grass will be greener and the flow­ers will be brighter; just stay warm un­til it’s over.

The birth­day club held their monthly cel­e­bra­tion at St. Mary’s Lodge on April 17 with Donna Sen­gaus as host­ess. There were two birthdays in ex­tended care: Chris­tel Jakob and Ma­bel Baker. In the Lodge there was only one birth- day, Leo Knievel. It was a cel­e­bra­tion all the same, doesn’t mat­ter if there are few or many. Thank you to all the ladies who com­mit their time to this fun monthly event. Next month, the party will be held on May 15 and Pat Hatt will be host­ing.

Linda Helmer stopped in to let me know that Josie Heck passed away on March 16 in Cal­gary. Frank and Josie were part of our com­mu­nity from 1969 to 1972 while Frank worked in the Fed­eral El­e­va­tor. He con­tin­ued to work for the Fed­eral un­til the Al­berta Wheat Pool bought them out. They moved to Cross­field in 1972 where Frank con­tin­ued his work as an el­e­va­tor agent and Josie worked at the Se­niors Lodge there. They had 5 chil­dren, Shirley, Lyle, Brenda, Bon­nie and Patsy.

Don’t for­get the Fire­man’s Mother’s Day Break­fast on May 14 from 9:00 to 11:00. This is a long stand­ing tra­di­tion that al­ways prom­ises a good break­fast and usu­ally a good visit with the neigh­bours so mark it on your cal­en­dar. Colby Cou­turier and Alyssa Yavis are get­ting mar­ried in July and since they have moved away and we never for­get a home­town boy, we are col­lect­ing money for them with Karrie or my­self as a wed­ding gift from the com­mu­nity.

Drumheller and Dis­trict 4-H are cel­e­brat­ing 100 years with a party down at Row­ley on June 10 start­ing at 2:00 p.m. They have plenty of games and entertainment planned along with a spe­cial guest, Blake Reed, on stage at 3:00. Tickets are avail­able from Me­lanie (403-772-0000), Jan­ice (403-364-2040) or Koren (403-823-4048).
