Sue Harms at­tended her 50th high school re­union on May 6. Sue was a mem­ber of the first grad­u­at­ing class from Bishop Grandin High School in Cal­gary. Af­ter gath­er­ing at the school for a tour and ac­tiv­i­ties, the group of grad­u­ates pro­ceeded to Her­itage Park for an evening of food and vis­it­ing. Much fun was had and it was great to see so many faces from the past.

The Sun­down­ers held their reg­u­lar sup­per meet­ing on May 16. Busi­ness dis­cussed in­cluded our grant from Com­mu­nity En­hance­ment which has been re­ceived and much ap­pre­ci­ated. Re­pair and cleanup of the base­ment is now com­pleted. Thanks to Pas­tor Dan for fig­ur­ing out our sound sys­tem for us so we can now use it. Up­com­ing busi­ness in­cluded the plan­ning of the Se­niors week sup­per on June 8, the cof­fee and craft show and sale af­ter the pa­rade, and the pos­si­bil­ity of a float in the pa­rade. Thanks to ev­ery­one who helped with the clean up…. the centre looks and smells great.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Kevin Finkbiner (grand­son of Ken & Frances Wil­liams and son of Can­dace Wil­liams) who grad­u­ated from DVSS on May 13. Can­dace hosted a fam­ily BBQ be­tween cer­e­monies. Best wishes to you Kevin!

Gar­rett Fandry and Alex Treacy spent May 13-19 on the Crowther Me­mo­rial Ju­nior High Eastern Canada trip. High­lights in­cluded a Blue Jays game, a tour through the Hockey Hall of Fame, and the CN Tower in Toronto. They spent two days in Ot­tawa where they toured Par­lia­ment and were able to sit in on Ques­tion Pe­riod and see how our gov­ern­ment is in ac­tion. They took a bike tour around the Rideau Canal and took in the Tulip Fes­ti­val at Dow Park. They also toured the War Mu­seum, which al­ways seems to be a favourite of all the stu­dents who go on this trip. Then it was onto Mon­treal and Que­bec City. A favourite was de­fi­antly the “Su­gar Shack” maple syrup farm. They toured the Notre Dame Basil­ica in Mon­treal, and spent a day tour­ing and tak­ing in the sites of Old Que­bec City. There were many more stops too lengthy to men­tion, but they def­i­nitely had an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence!

For 57 years, Hus­sar 4H Club has in­volved kids in a cen­tury worth of ex­pe­ri­ence that builds their skills as cat­tle­men and women, com­mu­nity lead­ers, public speak­ers, and vol­un­teers. This year is no ex­cep­tion and we are lucky to have so many kids from so many com­mu­ni­ties. In the past, our suc­cess has been thanks to the in­cred­i­ble support we al­ways re­ceive from our lo­cal busi­nesses, friends and neigh­bours. This econ­omy forces us to be re­al­is­tic, and we want to do our best to show­case your support. By all means, split calf pur­chases be­tween busi­nesses, cost share or do what­ever works for you. Your ad­ver­tis­ing dol­lars are well spent at the Hus­sar 4H Show and Sale, and we will make sure they go as far as pos­si­ble for you. We look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing the tra­di­tion and shar­ing how we can all give back to the com­mu­nity. Your name as a buyer will be men­tioned through­out the sale and also in Strath­more, Drumheller, Brooks and Bas­sano news­pa­pers. Make sure to stop by and ask all our mem­bers about their projects, they’ll be happy to an­swer your ques­tions.

Join us again for some­thing fun this Show and Sale called “The Fan Favourite”. You Be The Judge! We all have our fa­vorite calves we think should place well on show day, and so we want your opin­ion! Fol­low­ing the very last class and the an­nounce­ment of the Grand Cham­pion, we will go to the polls to see what the au­di­ence thinks. Your name will be en­tered into a draw, and the Fan Favourite calf will also win a prize to be given dur­ing the Awards Cer­e­mony June 29.

2nd Ave was busy on Satur­day May 20 and into the night with neigh­bours host­ing a block party. Street hockey be­gan at 2 pm start­ing with kids against kids. Which shortly followed with kids against dads. At one point there were about 20 play­ers (kids and adults) out on the street. The kids took a break from hockey (more so for the dads to catch their breath) and en­joyed a slip and slide. A bar­be­cue followed shorty af­ter, and with full tum­mies, it was back to play­ing more street hockey. They ended the night with a fire, marsh­mal­lows and smores!
