Rumsey & District Register
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.
