Hello Hand Hills…well we knew that it could not last and that old man winter would re­turn. We had a mix of snow and rain that amounted to about ¼” of mois­ture. Some ar­eas got more mois­ture than right here in the Hills. Here’s hop­ing that the trees sur­vive the cold snap as they are bud­ded out way ahead of time. Mois­ture is wel­come and more is needed.

Betty Ann Moench have and been Mur­ray en­joy­ing their new grand­daugh­ter for quite some time now as this bun­dle of joy was born back in Oc­to­ber. This is num­ber five for them. Proud par­ents are Heather and Scott Camp­bell of Del­burne. Kendiss Ann is a lit­tle sis­ter for Cooper. Congratulations to Joyce Moench and Betty Pin­combe on their great-grand­daugh­ter.

Congratulations to Ray­mond and Judy Siep­pert who cel­e­brated their 50th Wed­ding An­niver­sary a cou­ple of weeks ago. The Hand Hills wishes you many more years of hap­pi­ness.

Please phone Jac­quie Gal­ster if you can help with the fol­low­ing. The Club is look­ing for a group who would like to do Se­cu­rity for Hand Hills Lake Stam­pede on June 4. We need about 15 peo­ple from 8pm-2am. You will be paid for your ser­vice. Phone Jac­quie at 403-820-2604.

Sym­pa­thy is ex­tended to the fam­ily of Glenn Burt on his pass­ing. Glenn was a brother to Ber­nice Cos­grave, of Drumheller and Ken Burt of Craigmyle. The Hand Hills sends Sym­pa­thy to Mur­ray Burt and Lind­say Burt on the pass­ing of their fa­ther. Our Con­do­lences goes to all the fam­ily.

The Ball Di­a­mond is com­pleted and hats off to all of the young guys and girls who did all of the work. The equip- ment they had at their dis­posal was amaz­ing and it was all do­nated. From clean­ing up the old di­a­mond right down to get­ting the grass seeded. they com­pleted the work in less than three weeks. What an as­set this di­a­mond is go­ing to be in the Hills! But more im­por­tantly what an as­set the young group of vol­un­teers is. We tip our hats to you! John Rew has been a big spon­sor of this di­a­mond and like so many times be­fore, John has shown his true com­mu­nity spirit thru vol­un­teer­ing, equip­ment and man power. Hand Hills is so lucky and thank­ful for this. Bran­don Cud­die and Tommy Vre­de­goor have worked for years for John and the tools they have learned from work­ing at Craigmyle Oil­field made them the per­fect can­di­dates for head­ing up this Ball Di­a­mond project. Thank you John! The Tour­na­ment is set for June 10-12 and to date there are 14 teams en­tered. There is still time to get your team in as they are look­ing for 16 teams.

Blake Mor­ton and Alisha Min­chau have been help­ing the Delia 4-H with groom­ing and show­ing cat­tle tips. What an as­set they must be con­sid­er­ing their award win­ning track record on the Pure­bred Cat­tle Show Cir­cuit.

There is a meet­ing at the Club this Thurs­day. Plan to at­tend to help get things or­ga­nized for the 100th that is com­ing fast. Vol­un­teers are needed so please phone and get your name on a list. If any­one has VHS tapes of any of the Stam­pedes please phone me as we are look­ing at putting to­gether a dis­play. We do need it right away. Paint­ing is hap­pen­ing, re­pairs are be­ing done, the Club is just about fin­ished (for now any­ways) so things are hap­pen­ing. Go to the web­site www.hand­hills.ab.ca to see the count­down and an agenda for the 100th.

Till next week…keep those winter clothes handy!
