Mun­son Mail

The Drumheller Mail - - CLASSIFIEDS -

The buses are out and it’s back to school now for sure. I see lots of our local kids get­ting ready to head back to sec­ondary school as well. Good luck to all and en­joy ev­ery minute.

On my drive back from Medicine Hat on Mon­day I no­ticed there is a lot of crops fin­ished up and mostly canola left in the fields. Many farms must have got a bit of that rain on Sun­day night as it looked like a pretty quiet day for com­bines across that part of the coun­try.

The win­ner of the Mun­son 300 Raf­fle draw for Septem­ber 2 was Mary New­ton of Rum­sey. Con­grat­u­la­tions Mary and thank you very much for pur­chas­ing a ticket and supporting the Mun­son and Area Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion.

There have been a cou­ple of spe­cial birth­day cel­e­bra­tions over the last few weeks. Happy Birth­day to Doug Stanger Sr who cel­e­brated a big birth­day a cou­ple of weeks ago with fam­ily and friends. Also, happy birth­day to Lil Hansen who cel­e­brated her 90th birth­day on the week­end with fam­ily and friends in at­ten­dance. As a child, I re­mem­ber Lil made the very best choco­late chip cook­ies. I’m not sure what her recipe was but it was a lit­tle dif­fer­ent and maybe it had some­thing to do with bak­ing them a lit­tle closer to sea level down in the coulee there. Happy birth­day to you both and wishes for many more cel­e­bra­tions.

The Di­nosaur Val­ley Half marathon will be hap­pen­ing this com­ing Sun­day, on Septem­ber 10, start­ing at the Bad­lands Com­mu­nity Fa­cil­ity. The event in­cludes a half marathon (21K), 10K and 5K fam­ily fun run. It’s a great event that at­tracts over 400 par­tic­i­pants per year. It’s a great fam­ily event which runs along the beau­ti­ful paths of our val­ley. For more in­for­ma­tion check the web­site at www.Di­ If you are in­ter­ested in vol­un­teer­ing at the event give me a call. The event starts at 7:00 a.m. and is all wrapped up by noon on the Sun­day.

En­joy this short week and the lovely weather. Re­mem­ber to watch for farm ma­chin­ery on the road and the big yel­low school buses that are car­ry­ing such pre­cious cargo.
