Birthday greetings for June go to: Brad Sorensen 3rd, Alyse McGhee 6th, Donald Mueller 13th.
Last Friday morning Orkney claimed a first in the history of Orkney when a full grown black bear was sighted at Sarcee Cemetery. He was followed and was seen going through Elsie Garson’s yard then on to the Sorensen yard and was last seen two miles east of the Centre at Alisha Ferguson’s place. Latest report I heard it was seen on Sunday in the Dalum area. That bear is a long way from natural habitat so I wonder if it’s a rougue that has “lost its way”.
Orkney Sports is Father’s Day weekend and most seem to have other things to do so, on the 17th there’s a ball game at 4:00 p.m., supper at 6:00 p.m. which is the usual hamburgers and wieners, salad, pie or squares for dessert. This is a fundraiser for the Association. Ladies please take a pie or square. Weather permitting, folks can still play ball after a big supper - there will be a game at 7:00 p.m. See you there and bring a friend or friends along and enjoy a good meal and visit.
Notice to all ... clean-up at 7:00 p.m. on June 13. Many hands make light work so try to help out.
Any bets on the Stanley Cup? I’m certainly cheering for Nashville. Nice to see the Pens lose their cool and get called for some penalties - some long overdue!
Last Saturday I was told that Joan (McGhee) Coad had passed away in the States. I’m not sure where she and Stan lived but had been living in the States for many years. Sympathy to the families.
Last Friday certainly caused excitement around Three Hills when that tornado touched down! They were so fortunate that it missed town and no one was hurt. It was the annual Cruise Night and could have been a real problem. I feel sorry for the people who had destruction happen to their farm but there again, no injuries. Mother Nature is certainly in a nasty mood it seems with such severe weather in so many places. My son Rick knows folks in Dawson Creek who had a hail storm last week that was bigger than golf balls. That isn’t usual for that part of the country I don’t think.
Have a good week... I’m sure the Hand Hills Stampede was another success story.
