It will be a very brief re­port from Dalum this week and this is of­ten the case dur­ing the very busiest parts of the farm­ing year. Seed­ing is pro­gress­ing well in the district with only a few small show­ers slow­ing the ad­vance of the ac­tiv­ity in the fields.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Jay­den Nail who was part of the Drumheller Val­ley Sec­ondary School grade twelve grad­u­at­ing class which cel­e­brated the end of their high school ed­u­ca­tion last Satur­day. The cer­e­monies took place at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity where they be­gan with the pre­sen­ta­tion of var­i­ous awards and later the grad­u­ates re­turned, dressed in their finest, to take part in the grand march which pre­ceded the cus­tom­ary night time cel­e­bra­tions. While it was a busy day for ev­ery­one, Jay­den had taken on some ex­tra re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in his role as Vice-Pres­i­dent of the Grad Plan­ning Com­mit­tee, well done Jay­den.

Not ev­ery­one was busy in the fields or with fam­ily events as the pres­ence of recre­ational ve­hi­cles on the roads and in the camp­grounds gave ev­i­dence that the tourist sea­son has be­gun. Along with the hum of the bees and mos­qui­tos was the buzzing of mo­tor­cy­cles, an­other sign of the ap­proach­ing sum­mer.

Sev­eral Dalum fam­i­lies have chil­dren or grand­chil­dren at­tend­ing Green­tree Ele­men­tary School in Drumheller and I hear from my daugh­ter-in-law, April Ras­mussen, that those who would like to sup­port their play­ground ex­pan­sion project may be in­ter­ested in at­tend­ing the “Casino Gala” which is sched­uled for Satur­day evening, May 27, at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity. The event will fea­ture casino games, mu­sic and danc­ing, a silent auc­tion and late lunch. For more in­for­ma­tion you may visit the Friends of Green­tree School web­site at www. green­treeschool­fundraiser.wee­bly.com.

At the age of 95 Prince Phillip has put in a pretty good shift as “Royal Con­sort” to Queen El­iz­a­beth II and last week he turned over his royal du­ties to grand­son, Prince Harry. Dur­ing his long ca­reer in pub­lic life the el­der prince has been the source of nu­mer­ous com­ments which re­vealed his sense of hu­mour, in­clud­ing: “When a man opens a car door for his wife, it’s ei­ther a new car or a new wife.”
