Rum­sey & Dis­trict Reg­is­ter

The Drumheller Mail - - MAIL WORKS - Patty Steen 403-368-3820

The din­ner the­ater this past week­end was a huge suc­cess con­sid­er­ing the iffy weather we have been putting up with this past month. There were over 130 guests who en­joyed a de­li­cious din­ner and a very en­ter­tain­ing im­pro­vi­sa­tional group from Ed­mon­ton who had the crowd laugh­ing steady. Next on the Ag So­ci­ety’s agenda will be the Spring Fling, April 21, with a live and silent auc­tion of de­li­cious desserts and many do­na­tions from our many sup­port­ing busi­nesses and vol­un­teers. It is al­ways a fun event with our own lo­cal auc­tion­eer, Travis Caweziel and his merry band of spot­ters.

Jill Holowath let me know that the Bot­tle and Bat­tery drive that was sched­uled for this past Sunday was can­celled for the ob­vi­ous rea­son that the re­cy­cled items they are in­ter- ested in col­lect­ing are still cov­ered in many inches or feet of snow in most yards. She will let me know when they set the new date, prob­a­bly by the end of the month, so I can give you some time to get your do­na­tions ready. I hope by the end of this month, we will be see­ing some clear ground and green grass. Mock Achieve­ment day is planned for April 28 in the hopes that the 4-H pens in at the Ag So­ci­ety grounds will be dry enough to lead calves around. More from them later on.

It might seem a lit­tle early for this bit of news but for those of you who are part of a slow-pitch team, if you are in­ter­ested in join­ing us for Sports Days in July, we will be tak­ing first come-first serve on all reg­is­tra­tions as we want all teams reg­is­tered and paid for by June 1. You can con­tact my­self or Lo­gan Kiemele to reg­is­ter.

One last thing, I have been ap­proached by a few peo­ple in­ter­ested in hav­ing a community garage sale this year. I know it has been a few years now so maybe it is time to have one if we can get enough peo­ple in­ter­ested. I was think­ing that by the end of May could be a good time. We found that the last time we had one we had lots of peo­ple come on a Friday night but not that many on Saturday when the big­ger cen­ters had lots go­ing on. It might be a good idea to open ours on a Thursday night and Friday night then not on Saturday. If you are in­ter­ested con­tact my­self at the library and I’ll put you down. My fi­nal word: A woman walked into the vets’ of­fice want­ing to have her cat and six kit­tens spayed and neutered. “Is the mother friendly?” asked the vet. “Oh very,” said the woman, “That’s how we got into this mess in the first place.”

Have a great week.
