Verdant Valley Eye Opener
The family of Doris Wade held their third successful weekend with their mother, grandmother and greatgrandmother at the Verdant Valley Community Center on May 5 – 7. They are learning to quilt with the instruction of Doris and enjoying some special family together time. There were 28 present for the pot luck supper on Saturday evening. This time two of Doris’s great-granddaughters from Cranbrook, BC (granddaughters of Terri Wade) were present for the weekend. Some friends and neighbours also dropped in to visit and help with the quilting. What a great family occasion.
The BCF Field House was the scene of the 2017 High School graduation for Drumheller Valley Secondary School on Saturday, May 13, 2017. 67 students received their diplomas in a ceremony on Saturday morning.
