The Delia School and the Delia Elks served up an amaz­ing Canada 150 Com­mu­nity Break­fast at the Delia Com­mu­nity Cen­tre on Thurs­day morn­ing, Septem­ber 7. A large crowd of proud Delia Cana­di­ans turned out all dressed in red and white in honor of our great coun­try. The school chil­dren were all in at­ten­dance, which made it a special time as they had a pro­gram af­ter break­fast. The highlight of the pro­gram- I thought­was when this year’s grad­u­at­ing class joined the new kinder­garten class on stage. So nice to see a large kinder­garten class this year – looks well for the fu­ture of our school. Af­ter the pro­gram, every­one went outdoors where a group photo was taken of com­mu­nity res­i­dents stand­ing on a large maple leaf painted on the street. Jill Clay­holt was the pho­tog­ra­pher and as al­ways, did a fan­tas­tic job. Many ku­dos to the Delia School and Delia Elks for tak­ing on such a huge project.

An­other fire in the hills last Fri­day morn­ing – quick work by the area fire de­part­ments and many helpers got it un­der con­trol but there is a long burnt area in the hills to re­mind every­one how dev­as­tat­ing it could have been. The grass is tin­der dry ev­ery­where, please be care­ful every­one.

There will be a Birth­day Party at the Drop In Cen­tre on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 13 at 2 p.m. for mem­bers and friends hav­ing a birth­day in Au­gust and Septem­ber. Come join us for a fun af­ter­noon of games and prizes and a yummy lunch.
