Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - AROUND TOWN - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

I was look­ing back in last years’ col­umns and no­tice that it has been al­most a year since the new His­tory book was made avail­able for ev­ery­one to buy. If you haven’t got a copy by now, make sure you stop in at the li­brary or catch up to Mary New­ton or Dariel McNaughton. And, I do mean “Catch up” as those ladies are on the move all the time!

The weather fi­nally seemed to take a turn to sun­shine this week­end so the thoughts of seed­ing are def­i­nitely be­com­ing more im­por­tant. The Gar­den Club had their meet­ing last week and it was de­cided to keep the Chil­dren’s Gar­den Plots in the show plus add a spe­cial cat­e­gory of “Canada 150” ar­range­ment to the book so you can plan your plant­ing around these. The Rum­sey Li­brary will also con­tinue to host the Calendar Photo con­test so if you have a fa­vorite photo that you would like to en­ter, you can drop it off at the li­brary any time of the year. I would like the photo to be a “5X7” size as it helps the judges to vi­su­al­ize what the fin­ished “8X10” pic­ture in the calendar will look like. There is a cat­e­gory for ev­ery month of the year plus a cover pic­ture so drop by ev­ery month with a great photo and I will hap­pily store them for you un­til the con­test.

The Rum­sey 4-H Beef club had a successful bot­tle and bat­tery drive re­cently and would like to thank all the donors who chose to clean out their yards for a good cause. They raised al­most $1500 in bot­tles and the bat­ter­ies haven’t been picked up yet but Kent fig­ured they would have about the same amount as last year which was great. They hosted a Re­gional judg­ing day at the Rum­sey Hall a cou­ple of week­ends ago when it snowed so much so they didn’t have the turnout that they had hoped for but the kids who did strug­gle through en­joyed the day and learned a lot to take with them. The date of the Drumheller and Dis­trict show and sale has been set for Mon­day, June 5. The show starts at 9:00 am and the sale starts at 7:00 p.m. Also, re­mem­ber the 100th cel­e­bra­tion of the Drumheller and Dis­trict 4-H on June 10 at Row­ley start­ing at 2:00 p.m. It will be a fun day of activities up and down main street Row­ley with a spe­cial guest, Blake Reed, join­ing the fun at 3:00 p.m.

There will be no mi­nor ball hap­pen­ing at our lo­cal di­a­monds this spring as there are just not enough kids left in the com­mu­nity at this time. I know there are some ba­bies and tod­dlers com­ing up but I don’t think they are quite ready to swing the bat yet. The men’s fast­ball team will con­tinue on for an­other year. Their sched­ule will be posted up on the bul­letin board at the Post Of­fice but they don’t usu­ally get started un­til af­ter the long week­end in May. Hope­fully the seed­ing will be wind­ing down by then.

I know I have men­tioned this be­fore but just in case, the Fire­men Mother’s day Break­fast will be May 14 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, don’t miss it.

Here’s a cou­ple of Mom quotes for Moth­ers day:

Par­ent­ing Hack: When pun­ish­ing your kids, don’t take away their elec­tron­ics. Just take their charger and watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the bat­tery slowly dies.

And the one I al­ways told my kids: Moms are bet­ter than any CSI. They know you did it, how you did it, who you did it with, and they can hear you try­ing to hide the ev­i­dence.

Have a great week!
