I hope ev­ery­one en­joyed the Canada Day cel­e­bra­tions on the long week­end and were able to take in some fire­works dis­play some­where be­cause they were pretty spec­tac­u­lar ev­ery­where. It was won­der­ful to be able to cel­e­brate our coun­try’s 150th an­niver­sary this year in var­i­ous towns around our com­mu­nity.

We at­tended Drew and Shayla Tol­man’s wed­ding on July 1. He sure got a lot of teas­ing about pick­ing the eas­i­est date to re­mem­ber his an­niver­sary but I be­lieve the date had big­ger sig­nif­i­cance as it was Shayla’s grand­fa­thers 85th birth­day and the wed­ding was held in his beau­ti­ful, im­mac­u­late yard. It was a won­der­ful day with Bob and Joann Tol­man and Lee and Lori San­dum along with many friends and fam­ily in at­ten­dance to wit­ness the happy union.

Ken­nady and Justin An­der­son also tied the knot this past week­end, with par­ents Me­lanie and Randy Gri­d­ley and Karen An­der­son, en­joy­ing the beau­ti­ful, hot weather out on the farm then later in the Rum­sey Hall. Con­grat­u­la­tions to both cou­ples as they start their new lives to­gether.

There was good news within our com­mu­nity as well with the ar­rival of Ellery Lois Kiemele, a third beau­ti­ful daugh­ter for Lee and Lo­gan Kiemele on June 25. Taya and Brin are very happy with their new sis­ter, I think Lee is hop­ing for more sleep! All is well at the Kiemele ranch these days.

This week­end is the Ag So­ci­ety’s Sports days start­ing on Fri­day night with the first of slow­pitch games. There will also be a Fri­day night movie in the hall for all young (and old) who en­joy a good car­toon. I sug­gest that ev­ery­one bring pil­lows or some­thing com­fort- able so they can settle down on the dance floor and watch the movie in leisure. We will have snacks and treats for sale but the movie is free so come on in; it will start at 9:00 after the sec­ond game. On Satur­day and Sun­day, there will be a pan­cake break­fast from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. then the con­ces­sion, served by the 2018 Mor­rin grad class as a fundraiser, will take over your food needs un­til 5:00 each day. They will also be serv­ing food dur­ing the dance for those who like to eat dur­ing the mid­night hours. Coun­try Cater­ers will be serv­ing a roast beef sup­per on Satur­day night from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. open to ev­ery­one in the com­mu­nity. The games will con­tinue all Satur­day and Sun­day with play-offs on Sun­day af­ter­noon. The Ag So­ci­ety will have the rink open all week­end with equip­ment to play bas­ket­ball and floor hockey so if you need to es­cape the heat come on in­doors for a while. Camp­ing is free for ev­ery­one, we just ask that ev­ery­one use re­spect for fel­low campers by park­ing con­sid­er­ately. I know that ev­ery­one likes to “cir­cle the wag­ons” but that takes a lot of space so please con­sider park­ing your trail­ers side by side. There will be dump­sters and re­cy­cling bins avail­able around the grounds to make it easy to keep your camp­sites clean. We won’t bug you much dur­ing the week­end but by Sun­day we ask you to clean up and take your garbage to the dump­sters be­fore leav­ing since we are all vol­un­teers and work­ing hard al­ready. It will be a fun week­end and hope­fully not rain 4 inches like last year!

The S.T.A.R.S ride is just a month away, set for Au­gust 13, so get your pledge sheets from Ernie God­dard or Mary New­ton to start col­lect­ing pledges for such a great cause. Have a gig­gle and a great week:

A sec­ond grader came home from school and said to her mother, “Mom, guess what? We learned how to make ba­bies to­day.”

The mother, more than a lit­tle sur­prised, asked fear­fully, “That’s in­ter­est­ing. How do you make ba­bies?”

“It’s sim­ple,” replied the girl. “You just change ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add ‘es’.
