Rum­sey & District Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

I know I typ­i­cally start with a line or two about the weather be­cause it is ul­ti­mately the most im­por­tant part of our farm­ing cul­ture but this week I think ev­ery­one is think­ing and pray­ing for the same thing – rain, rain and more rain. The up­side to all this ex­treme dry hot weather is the hay­ing has been go­ing beau­ti­fully.

I have been re­miss in list­ing the birthdays from June and July at St. Mary’s Lodge over in Trochu. In June, Pat Holowath was host­ess at the Lodge and they cel­e­brated 5 birthdays. In the Lodge, Ade­line Guynup, Marie Elle­ment and Beryl Geli­nas cel­e­brated their spe­cial day. In ex­tended care, Max­ine Med­ing and Mar­garet Stan­bievech were also cel­e­brat­ing. In July, Ken­dra Kiemele was the host­ess and she pre­sented gifts to Wat­son Reed in Ex­tended Care and Agnes Greig in the Lodge. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all those spe­cial peo­ple. Dariel McNaughton will be the host­ess for the birth­day club in Au­gust.

There is happy news in the Sors­ensen house­hold these days as Melita ( Wal­gen­bach) and Chad along with lit­tle Nash wel­comed a beau­ti­ful baby girl into the world on July 17. Tem­per­ance Louise ar­rived a lit­tle early weigh­ing in at 7 lbs, 10 ozs, but all is well and the fam­ily couldn’t be hap­pier. Melita Wal­gen­bach lived in our com­mu­nity and curled with Betty Prim­rose and oth­ers in all our bon­spiels. She teaches in Big Val­ley when she is not busy with ba­bies. Con­grat­u­la­tions, ev­ery­one.

One of our fel­low colum­nists asked me to pass this event news onto you, the Ver­dant Val­ley Draft horse Com­pe­ti­tion is set for Satur­day, July 29, start­ing at noon. This event is held 15 km east of Drumheller on Hwy 576 at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. There will be fun ac­tiv­i­ties for the kids, dis­plays and ex­hibits, an an­tique auto and ma­chin­ery dis­play, live mu­sic along with the draft horse com­pe­ti­tion. There will be a con­ces­sion all day along with a Beef on a Bun Sup­per avail­able so make sure you mark your cal­en­dars for next Satur­day’s fun events.

As for Rum­sey events, the S.T.A.R.S Ride is fast ap­proach­ing with plenty to do there. Sun­day, Au­gust 13 start­ing at 9:00 am you need to be down at the TL Bar Ranch for break­fast cour­tesy of the Rum­sey fire­men then set out on a beau­ti­ful ride through the river val­ley for a few hours. If you are not a rider then there is a silent auc­tion, raf­fle, lunch, live mu­sic and good vis­it­ing to en­joy while the rid­ers are gone. Once they are back, there will be a sup­per avail­able to all the com­mu­nity so come and en­joy a good meal. There is a min­i­mum pledge re­quire­ment of $20 for each rider to go on the ride but re­mem­ber what a good cause this is and col­lect as much as you can. Hope to see you there.

Have a great week, ev­ery­one.
