On Mon­day, May 22 Liam McDougald, son of Brad and Koren, had the hon­our of play­ing in the Se­nior Bowl which is the Provin­cial High School Foot­ball All-Star game at McMa­hon Sta­dium in Cal­gary. It was the south vs. the north and the team from the south with Liam play­ing won 29-15. Way to go Liam.

We went to the Hand Hills Stam­pede this week­end. What a crowd of peo­ple! The weather was great and the ac­tion was also. It has be­come a world class event although those of us old enough to re­mem­ber loved the qui­eter days. I was one month old when I went to my first Hand Hills Stam­pede and I am not say­ing how long ago that was!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Barry Keirle who was show­ing his vin­tage car in the Boo­gie in the Bad­lands car show last week­end. He won best in the show for Chrysler with his 1958 Dodge Royal two door hard top. The tro­phy was pre­sented by Drumheller Chrysler. Barry also took the car to the Three Hills Car Show this week­end. A great hobby for your re­tire­ment Barry!

Be­lated birth­day greet­ings to Anne Heiliger on June 2, Brenna Grieve on June 3, Val James on June 4 Jensen on June 5.

Happy birth­day this week to Stacy (Thomas) Le Blanc on June 8, Brit­tney James on June 9, and Cori (Poland) Grieve on June 10.

Best wishes on your wed­ding an­niver­sary to Ron and He­len Leon­hardt, Ja­son and Lisa James, Kelly and Glo­ria An­der­son and Tom and Dani Doo­ley on June 11 and Ja­son and Alisha Ewing on June 12. and Jasper

Now that sum­mer is upon us and trees and shrubs are grow­ing rapidly, it is a good time for both the Town of Drumheller and home­own­ers to en­sure that the side­walks ad­ja­cent to their prop­er­ties are pedes­trian friendly. Two pedes­tri­ans should be able to walk com­fort­ably side-by-side along the street.

Are there tree branches over­hang­ing the side­walks that are en­dan­ger­ing pedes­tri­ans? Have hedges be­come too wide, en­croach­ing on the side­walks and nar­row­ing the walk­ing ar­eas? Have lawns been al­lowed to over­grow the walk­ways?

Lo­cal walk­ers and tourists will cer­tainly ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­forts. Come on Drumheller, let’s make our com­mu­nity pedes­trian friendly. Corinne Ger­ling
