An ac­tive week­end for a lot of peo­ple. On Satur­day, June 24 the fam­ily of Vi Adie held a birth­day party in cel­e­bra­tion of her 80th birth­day at the Mun­son Hall. Lots of vis­it­ing with fam­ily and friends from as far away as Lethbridge, Cal­gary, Red Deer, Dids­bury, Corona­tion, Rim­bey and Vi’s brother and wife, Bob and Car­rol Howard from Peers, Al­berta. Good time was had by all.

Satur­day evening Fred and Gerri Shad­lock at­tended the con­cert of Rex Allen Ju­nior at the Tor­ring­ton 150 year cel­e­bra­tion held that day. He is a good en­ter­tainer and they en­joyed the great mu­sic. They were joined for the evening by Gerri’s brother and wife Larry and Gail Mor­timer.

On Sun­day the Knox United Church held their third an­nual fundraiser. It was hosted by the McDougald fam­ily and in­cluded an af­ter­noon of ac­tiv­ity for young and older cli­maxed by the bar­be­cue beef sup­per and live and silent auc­tion. At least 120 peo­ple en­joyed the ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing one guest from the Yukon. A very suc­cess­ful event.

The Ver­dant Val­ley Com­mu­nity Cen­ter is busy these days with fam­ily re­unions and on Satur­day evening a wedding dance for a cou­ple whose fam­i­lies are from Brooks and Rocky Moun­tain House and wanted some­place in be­tween to hold their dance.

A meet­ing of the Chore (Heavy) Horse Com­pe­ti­tion com­mit­tees was held at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter mak­ing fi­nal plans for the event on July 29. Watch the Drumheller Mail com­ing events for more in­for­ma­tion on this. Last year the com­pe­ti­tion was at­tended by 300 peo­ple and was a great suc­cess.
