Rum­sey & District Reg­is­ter

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

Last Mon­day we ex­pe­ri­enced a win­ter storm that I don’t think even the old timers could top. That one will stay in our mem­o­ries for quite a while I be­lieve; at least un­til we are the old timers with the tales to tell. I hope ev­ery­one made out al­right with no last­ing dam­age be­yond some tree branches bro­ken.

It is with sad­ness that I share with you the news of Dave New­tons’ pass­ing on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 6. His fu­neral will be held on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 12 at 2:00 p.m. in the Rum­sey Hall. He was the old­est child born to Mar­garet and Ge­orge New­ton on De­cem­ber 23, 1930. He farmed at Rum­sey for many years, then owned apart­ment build­ings and worked at Daines Western Shop at Brooks. He was al­ways in­ter­ested in rodeos and was part­ners in the Big­stone Rodeo Com­pany. As he al­ways had a love for horses since he was very young, he served as pres­i­dent of the Rum­sey Rodeo Club and was one of the main driv­ing forces be­hind the Rum­sey Rodeo held ev­ery July. He had three chil­dren; Keith mar­ried to Lor­raine Mul­h­bach, Cindy mar­ried to Jim Kry­wcum and Deb­bie. He stated that his an­ces­tors were gyp­sies and he also had the wan­der­ing bug ac­cord­ing to his chil­dren. Keith nick­named him the “Tourist” as he could go off for a month at a time with­out word and when he re­turned would tell tales of trav­el­ling to BC a cou­ple of times and been down to Mon­tana. “I’ve just been around the coun­try.” (this story taken from Cindy’s his­tory of her dad in the 2016 his­tory book) Dave and his brother Trevor shared many ven­tures to­gether from ho­tel man­age­ment to run­ning buf­falo on Trevor and Mary’s farm. Cindy writes that she re­mem­bers her dad best as be­ing one of the kind­est, he was al­ways will­ing to take in some­one who needed a safe place to sleep and work for a while to get back on their feet. They al­ways re­turned the kind­ness by help­ing on the farm. He loved his horses, the cow­boy way and a good story.

The Christmas mar­ket is fast fill­ing up with ven­dors of all kinds so if you are in­ter­ested in sell­ing your wares please give Claire Kry­wcum (403-321-0080), Baylee God­dard (403443-8384) or my­self (403-368-3820) a call to book a ta­ble. We are in­ter­ested in all kinds of home busi­nesses, crafters and en­trepreneurs. The mar­ket will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 25 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Don’t for­get to mark on your cal­en­dars that the Fall Sup­per in Rum­sey will be held on Satur­day, Novem­ber 4 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. with lots of time to visit af­ter­wards so make sure you come and join in. Here’s a gig­gle to en­ter­tain: Two con­firmed bach­e­lors sat talk­ing, their con­ver­sa­tion drifted from pol­i­tics to cook­ing.

“I got a cook­book once,” said one, “but I could never do any­thing with it.” “Too much fancy work in it, eh?” asked the other. “You said it. Ev­ery one of the recipes be­gan the same way - ‘Take a clean dish’

Have a great week.
