WOW! Where did sum­mer go? I hope every­one had a won­der­ful sum­mer! Good luck to all the kids head­ing back to school. Hope every­one has a su­per year! Con­grats to Yvonne Com­stock who is the new cook at the Wheat­land Cross­ing School. Have a su­per year Yvonne!

Joel, Corey, Kayla, Eric & Mary spent 10 days in July on Pend Oreille River with Ja­son & Lisa James, Spencer & Tori. What a won­der­ful place they have down there! Kayla flew home to at­tend Scott & Jes­sica’s wed­ding, while the rest of the crew came home via Kelowna. We were 6 days at Larry & Kim Stawnichy’s (San­dum) new place, spending the week­end with the girls so Kim & Larry could at­tend cousin Clay­ton’s wed­ding in Cal­gary. Then we con­tin­ued on to overnight twice with Mitch & Rhonda out on An­stey Arm, and of course across the wa­ter to visit the Fandry, Muller, San­dum crew. We feel very lucky that Grand­fa­ther Dale was able to stay at our place to look af­ter things (& Kayla lol) while we were gone. Home sweet home for a cou­ple days then Corey & the girls were Saska­toon bound to cel­e­brate Mike & Teneil’s wed­ding. What a great time that was too! A few days here & there to Bas­sano, and we have had a very busy, fun­filled sum­mer. Fi­nally home to do some work, es­pe­cially with this early har­vest, and get kids ready for school. Kayla will be head­ing off to the Univer­sity of Leth­bridge to live in res­i­dence and work towards her Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Agri­cul­tural Stud­ies. Good luck Kayla!

The Oster fam­i­lies had their Aus­tralian cousin, Danny Oster, here for a cou­ple of days, in the mid­dle of his trip of West­ern Canada and across the US. They toured Dorothy, where Danny’s mum and dad, Ed and He­len Oster, were the first ones mar­ried in the United Church. Also on the tour was Wayne, Gem, the Brooks Aquaduct, Crawl­ing Val­ley Reser­voir and the Bas­sano Dam. Jim, Jerry and Danny’s grand­fa­ther, John Oster, im­mi­grated here in 1912 to work on the build­ing of the Dam.

Kris­ten and Peter An­der­son along with Tom and An­gela Arm­strong and Marie and Larry Faye, went to the first of the seven sold out Garth Brooks con­certs. The con­cert was amaz­ing! They en­joyed the show and ran into many friends and neigh­bors en­joy­ing the con­cert also.

Septem­ber 2 the Hales were off to Stavely for the Glen Kee­ley Me­mo­rial Bull Rid­ing. To start the show off they had mini bronc rid­ing. Brody scored 82 points rid­ing The Fonz to claim the cham­pi­onship and his first buckle. Jayna made a great 79 point Bare­back ride on Mid­night Stroller to place sec­ond. Dex­ter is still wait­ing to get his cast off and get back to rid­ing!

A big thank you to the Hus­sar His­tor­i­cal for all their work to get the His­tory Book go­ing! A huge thank you to Kris­ten An­der­son who has put in hours and hours of extra work to get the ball rolling. Kris­ten has met with the com­pany and the sto­ries have been dropped off with them. Now the next stage is or­ga­niz­ing pic­tures. It’s ex­cit­ing be­cause it is all com­ing to­gether!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Christina Mun­sie from Cal­gary for win­ning $2,665.00 from the Kid­ney March 50/50 Draw. What a way to end the sum­mer for Christina.

A huge thank you to every­one who sup­ported the “U-rine Kid­ney Com­pany” fundrais­ing this year. We are so for­tu­nate to have such great friends and fam­ily to help us fundraise to raise money for such a great cause. Thurs­day night, Lisa, Kim, Tracy and Pam will head to Cal­gary for an in­for­ma­tion ses­sion that night. They will stay in a ho­tel and meet the bus at 6:30 the next morn­ing to head out for the open­ing cer­e­monies. Good luck ladies!
