The Drumheller Mail - - NEWS - Norma West 403-823-9750

There isn’t too much news this week but, the Stam­pede is over in Cal­gary and it was good as usual. Lots of ex­cit­ing rides and times posted. Big Val­ley’s young Mr. Thurston did it again and won his third con­sec­u­tive cham­pi­onship which is some­thing to be very proud of.

The fires in B.C. are still mak­ing head­lines and Kamloops is now burst­ing at the seams with the in­flux of evac­uees. They must need all sorts of re­lief sup­plies and I’m still won­der­ing if the Town of Drumheller is think­ing of help­ing out in any way.

The Pas­sion Play is on now so hope the weather co­op­er­ates. Driv­ing past on Sun­day af­ter­noon, the park­ing lot was full to al­most over­flow. Nice to see that it is still so pop­u­lar for so many peo­ple from all over the coun­try and at times from over­seas as well.

This past week­end, I had my grand­daugh­ter Roberta Ke­ichinger from Leth­bridge here on her way to visit friends and fam­ily in and near St. Paul. Her hol­i­day time is com­ing to an end ex­cept for long week­ends it seems.

I’m see­ing sev­eral cars from On­tario, Que­bec and B.C. as well as sev­eral from the States. The Amer­i­cans are en­joy­ing our low dol­lar and are com­ing here for the nu­mer­ous in­ter­est­ing places in our coun­try and some are even learn­ing some­thing about our coun­try and learn­ing that we have very good restau­rants and ho­tels avail­able. It might even be an ed­u­ca­tion for some of them.

I hope that the smoke ar­riv­ing in the val­ley isn’t caus­ing too much trou­ble for folks with health prob­lems.

That’s it or this week. Keep the folks in B.C. in your prayers.
