What a fu­ri­ous storm last week! My yard is shel­tered so I didn’t have any dam­age but there was lots of ev­i­dence of dam­age around town. In the Orkney area, I know the Fer­gu­son’s had a steel bin top­pled and a tree thought it would take a rest on top of the hol­i­day trailer. There were lots of small branches and leaves strewn around too so I ex­pect there was dam­age at other farms as well.

All you rodeo fans must be gear­ing up for the Hand Hills Stam­pede this week­end. What a great achieve- ment for them, 101 years! Hope the weather be­haves for you.

Here’s a heads up for you Orkney folks... the An­nual Sports Day will be held on June 17, as usual on Fa­ther’s Day week­end. More in­for­ma­tion will be com­ing soon as to events and what the menu will be for sup­per. Mark your sched­ule, agenda and date­book and we hope to see ev­ery­one there.

Was so sorry to see Ottawa lose out to the Pens but it was a well fought se­ries and they should be proud. The Stan­ley Cup se­ries starts tonight so when you read the Preds should have won game one. It has al­ways seemed odd to me that in mid-June they are still play­ing hockey and by that time of year ev­ery sport known can be played. I guess nowa­days it’s all sports, all year.

Have a good week and with this nice sunny weather, be sure to wear sun screen as bad burns are not fun!
