Hello 0rkney...l hope you’re stay­ing in good hu­mor con­sid­er­ing the weather this last while. ‘

Last Thurs­day night was the An­nual meet­ing and I’m sorry to re­port it was a very small turnout. Per­haps some didn’t know but it seems there is less and less in­ter­est in the com­mu­nity to put an ef­fort into do­ing some­thing that is fun and can also bring in some rev­enue. Yes, at cer­tain times of the year things are re­ally busy, that is a given but I of­ten won­der how much of their her­itage a lot of the younger ones know or ap­pre­ci­ate. I hope it is all of them.

The new pres­i­dent for the As­so­ci­a­tion is Jo­ce­lyn Soren­son and new board mem­bers are Crys­tal Fer­gu­son and Don­ald Mueller. Crys­tal and Jo­ce­lyn are the peo­ple to con­tact re­gard­ing the rental of the hall so if any­one asks you who to con­tact you know.

Last Thurs­day I had Scott Toiva­nen, Jane Toiva­nen and her friend Mike from Red Deer and Fri­day they took me to Cal­gary for med­i­cal ap­point­ments and then we ven­tured to the casino for a short time, not much money made, had supper and came home. Satur­day we were at Wayne for supper and Sun­day were at home.

Many LATE NIGHTS and lots of card games but a fun time. They went back to Red Deer Mon­day af­ter­noon.

The new project for the As­so­ci­a­tion is to re­pair the pic­nic ta­bles and they would like a good turn out‚ when this hap­pens at a later date. The An­nual Orkney Sports Day is the usual Fa­ther’s Day weekend and the Satur­day, June 17. More de­tails on that at a later date.

Have a good week and here is a say­ing from Joel Alexan­der: “Feel­ings change....mem­o­ries don’t.”
