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.
