What a beau­ti­ful rain we had this past week­end, I know it was scat­tered around the com­mu­nity so I hope ev­ery­one got at least some of the show­ers that passed over­head.

One of our hard­work­ing young men of the com­mu­nity got a shot at the big leagues this past week; Gar­rett Holowath headed to Win­nipeg as part of the U21 Al­berta base­ball team to com­pete in the Canada Sum­mer Games. His par­ents, Jill and Kent Holowath couldn’t be hap­pier with this per­sonal ac­com­plish­ment. Jill’s par­ents are from around Portage, Oakville area so it will be fa­mil­iar ter­ri­tory for Gar­rett as he trav­els out there for the games. We wish him the best.

The 28th an­nual S.T.A.R.S ride will be tak­ing off this com­ing Sun­day, Au­gust 13 from the TL Bar ranch so be sure to go down to the river and join in the fun. Even if you don’t ride there will be a pan­cake break­fast, lunch from the Rich­monds and a roast beef sup­per to take part in plus the silent auc­tion, raf­fle and poker rally that all help bring the to­tal raised each year to such a high amount. This is such a valu­able re­source for us coun­try folk that it is es­sen­tial that ev­ery­one help keep these he­li­copters and staff go­ing.

Next up on the Ag So­ci­ety’s calendar will be the Red Deer River Gar­den Show on Au­gust 30 at the Agriplex. Now that it has rained I’m sure that ev­ery­one will be tak­ing a sec­ond look at their gar­den pro­duc­tion and con­sid­er­ing what can be en­tered into the show. There are gar­den books avail­able through the club mem­bers so call Mary New­ton or Diane McBride if you want one. Also the photo con­test for the Com­mu­nity Calendar will be run­ning at the show so bring in your pho­tos to me at the li­brary any time be­fore the show and I will take care of them for you. I would just love to have more en­tries this year in all of the cat­e­gories.

Have a great week, ev­ery­one.
