Did you see the video of the tor­nado at Three Hills? Pretty scary and too close to home. Have not heard of any re­ports of dam­age so far, hope­fully it only touched down in a field.

Last week a cel­e­bra­tion of life was held for Gor­don Roberts at the Delia Drop In Cen­tre. Gor­don was a long time res­i­dent of Delia and was greatly missed when he re­lo­cated to Drumheller, Gor­don passed away at the age of one hun­dred and one! His wife, Irene, and daugh­ter, Muriel, would like to thank the ladies at the Drop In Cen­tre for the lunch served at the me­mo­rial that day.
