What a beau­ti­ful week­end weather wise. The green grass and new leaves are a pleas­ant site.

This week’s lucky win­ner of the Mun­son 300 Raf­fle Draw is Dan and Elaine Moe. Con­grat­u­la­tions and thanks for sup­port­ing the com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion.

Don’t forget June 13 is the An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing for the Mor­rin School Par­ent Coun­cil at 7:00 PM. This is your way of hav­ing a voice in what hap­pens at your school and to have a bet­ter idea of what is hap­pen­ing at the school.

On Oc­to­ber 16, there will be a School Board Elec­tion and they are look­ing for in­ter­ested peo­ple to join in the run­ning. For more de­tails check out the Prairie Land web­site at http:// plrd. ab. ca/ School% 20 Board% 20Elec­tions% 202017. php

There will be no school on June 5. The 4H Beef Show and Sale will take place on June 5 at Delia. Good luck to all the 4Hers and con­grat­u­la­tions on all your hard work for the year.

On Satur­day, June 10 the Drumheller and District 4H clubs will be cel­e­brat­ing 100 years of 4H in Al­berta. The event is open to ev­ery­one. It starts at 2:00 with reg­is­tra­tion and dis­plays. At 3:00 there will be a pro­gram, fol­lowed by Her­itage and 4H games. There will be live en­ter­tain­ment. At 5:00 there will be pizza served and at 6:30 Blake Reid will per­form. For ticket in­for­ma­tion con­tact Me­lanie Nel­son at 403-772-0000.

Here is some food for thought: When you’re on time, you avoid stress. They may not ex­press it, but the peo­ple you work with will ap­pre­ci­ate the fact that you’re not late. They won’t have any rea­son to be mad at you or to think you don’t re­spect their time. You’ll stop rush­ing, and be­cause you won’t be so hur­ried, you will re­lax a little bit and have slightly more time to re­flect.

Have a good week and take care of your­self. Ro­tary is a vol­un­teer or­ga­ni­za­tion of 1.2 mil­lion busi­ness and pro­fes­sional lead­ers united world­wide in more than 200 coun­tries. For more in­for­ma­tion about the Ro­tary Club of Drumheller go to www.drumheller­ro­tary.com

It will be fun – ex­cit­ing – take your chance and you may win $5,000. All of this is pos­si­ble be­cause Ro­tary is up to some­thing new. The Big Ball Bounce takes place at 2 pm on Au­gust 5.

Here’s how it works: Num­bered lacrosse balls will be loaded onto a dump truck. The box will be raised and the balls will roll down the north­ern por­tion of cen­tre street. The ball fin­ish­ing clos­est to the tar­get wins the big money. In ad­di­tion to all of this, there is an early-bird draw for $500 on June 26.

Tick­ets have gone on sale and al­ready Chair Barb Camp­bell re­ports sales are brisk. Wouldn’t it be a good pro­mo­tion to have Barb sit in a tub with 2,000 lacrosse balls. And, as usual, the more tick­ets you buy the more Ro­tary can do to sup­port the youth of our com­mu­nity. Let’s all get into this ac­tion. Tick­ets are avail­able by con­tact­ing a Ro­tar­ian, or give Barb a call at 8233165 and ar­range­ments will be made to de­liver the tick­ets to you.

Ro­tary is very ac­tive in en­cour­ag­ing and sup­port­ing youth. This year, for ex­am­ple, there are four trips for stu­dents to travel as far away as Ottawa and Wis­con­sin, our Pol­ish Ex­change stu­dents, schol­ar­ships and var­i­ous projects which also in­clude fam­i­lies and se­niors.

More in­for­ma­tion is com­ing. Ro­tary will be the ma­jor spon­sor of the first ‘Spark Your Spark’ day that will bring to­gether 10 – 18 year-old stu­dents from Stan­dard, Car­bon, Mor­rin, Delia and the Drumheller VSal­ley. This fall stu­dents will get the op­por­tu­nity to try some­thing they’ve thought about, do­ing any­thing from box­ing to cook­ing. Knowl­edge­able in­struc­tors will be brought to­gether for this event.

Thanks to the com­mu­nity for the con­tin­ued won­der­ful sup­port at the White Ele­phant Sale. Chair­man Gra­ham Gif­fin, fel­low club mem­bers, Friends of Ro­tary and 4-H banded to­gether to raise funds for var­i­ous projects.

We wel­come our new­est mem­ber Phyl­lis An­der­son.
