We were deeply sad­dened to hear of the pass­ing of Lor­raine Jor­gensen at the Foothills Hospi­tal in Cal­gary, af­ter a se­ri­ous ill­ness. Deep­est sym­pa­thy of the com­mu­nity to Arnold, Shelly, Shan­non, Sh­eryl, Patty, and all of Lor­raine’s ex­tended fam­ily and friends. Lor­raine and Arnold lived in Delia for many years, where Lor­raine was a mem­ber of the Vil­lage Coun­cil, and they both were very ac­tive in com­mu­nity life. Her loss is felt deeply among the many friends she has in our vil­lage, and sin­cere con­do­lences go out to her fam­ily at this dif­fi­cult time.

A few Delia res­i­dents were on the Get­away Tours Bus to Moose Jaw last week and re­port an en­joy­able time with great weather, ex­cept for a rainy trip through Saskatchewan on the way home. I went and had a great time, which is why there was no col­umn last week. Sorry about that, but I needed to get away.

Happy birthday to Nancy Stiles on the Oc­to­ber 23 and to Harry Thompson, who will cel­e­brate his birthday on Oc­to­ber 26. Have a su­per day!
