Orkney Or­a­cle

Last Satur­day saw a nice crowd out for the Orkney Sports Day. There was a short­age of lo­cal play­ers for a ball game so help­ing out were friends from Drumheller to make up 2 teams. Lots of home runs hit that day, some funny mis­takes, and a good time. There were some 50 folks who en­joyed a great sup­per of as­sorted sal­ads, ham­burg­ers, hot dogs and lots of choices on the dessert ta­ble. It was a good day although the rain af­ter sup­per can­celled the last ball game. Many thanks to Blaine, Crys­tal and Derrick as the bar­be­cue chefs and to all others who made the sal­ads and helped with clean-up.

The com­mu­nity’s lat­est world trav­eller is Kathy Bell along with her sis­ter-in-law from Cal­gary. They just re­cently re­turned home from a 10 day con­ducted tour of cen­tral Ger­many do­ing smaller cities rather than the big ones peo­ple usu­ally see. The weather was great and it was a fun time. Glad it was fun for you both. It’s nice to get off the usual touristy tour and see some in­ter­est­ing places not nor­mally on tours.

Thanks again to the folks from Drumheller for help­ing out. I know some of you have been out other years for sports day. I think I heard that you are from the Nazarene Church. Orkney ap­pre­ci­ates your help.

That’s it for this week. It would be nice if the rain held off for a few days with no wind so the farm­ers can get their spray­ing done.

Drive care­fully and re­mem­ber that your ve­hi­cle has sig­nal lights there for a rea­son. Use them

Be­lated Fa­ther’s Day greet­ings to all you dads. I trust some­one else did the bar­be­cue work.
